What is Valuable about Composting?

What is Valuable About Composting?

By Clifford Woods

Over the course of human history and pretty much as far back as civilization stretches, composting has been used a means by which to grow food and enrich gardens. Sadly however, ever since mass-scale farming took over several decades ago, the practice has declined all over the world and there is less emphasis put on the importance of composting than ever before.

This is something that simply has to change for the future, and thankfully looks like it’s once again heading in the right way.

A Rebirth for Composting: Nowadays, people are becoming more and more aware not only of what they are using around the home and the garden, but also what they are putting into their bodies and the effects their actions have on the environment. As such, the idea of composting has once again become a discussed point and people are realizing just how positive and beneficial this truly ancient practice can be and how much it really benefits our environment.

Even the most simple of endeavors like natural composting at home with the use of a single container for food scraps and organic waste is having a massively beneficial effect on the planet, helping to the reduce the need for landfills and other kinds of waste disposal. With the slightest effort, composting can lead to significant cash savings, benefits to health, positives for the garden and a beneficial boost to the environment all at the same time.

Getting Into the Habit: In order to be effective, those looking to compost at home need to “get into the habit” to a point where recycling their organic waste becomes natural, and not something they actually have to think about.

To work properly, effective composting at home needs to be part of a “lifestyle” and is an on-going process. Once these habits have been instilled however the benefits are too numerous to count, though include the following among others:

Value of Composting:

  • Production of an excellent product to boost the growth of organic fruits, vegetable and herbs at home – guaranteed to be 100% free of chemicals and harmful additives.
  • A free form of fertilizer that costs nothing – the waste will already be present as a part of everyday life, so why not put it to use?
  • An excellent alternative to use with 100% safety in environments where children or pets may be present.
  • A simple way of getting rid of refuses and waste from the garden, which may not be allowed in standard collections.
  • A means by which to reduce overall wastage and thus conserve landfill space.

Going about natural composting around the home essentially represents nothing more than common sense. After all, to overlook composting value and continue to throw out perfectly good organic matter only to go and pay good money for compost at the store is money poured needlessly down the drain.

Effective composting can be child’s play and there’s no reason not to get the kids involved from an early age and begin instilling good habits for life.

That being said, it’s never too late to get started and begin making a difference.

Taking A Quick Look At Composting And Effective Microorganisms

Taking A Quick Look At Composting And Effective Microorganisms Or EM

By Clifford Woods

Traditional procedures for making compost takes anywhere from 1 to 2 months. However, these days there is something widely available that can help reduce this process into just 3 weeks. Thanks to composting and Effective Microorganisms (EM or also called Beneficial Microorganisms), improved soil condition and ultimately agricultural productivity need not take a very long time to be enjoyed.

Reasons why the use of compost is highly beneficial vary. Primarily, its addition helps enhance the health and fertility of the soil. It contributes to the improvement of the types and amount of microbes present in the soil, valuable in more ways than one. Ecological risks are also reduced as the use of synthetic fertilizers hazardous to the environment is eliminated. Because it enriches the soil and enhances its quality, agricultural productivity is improved.

This approach actually relies for fermentation process, necessary for making bread, cheese, yogurt, salami, beer and many others. The liquid culture needs to have the right blend of microorganisms to work.

Yeast, lactic acid and photosynthetic bacteria are the main groups of microscopic life forms that are major role players. There are also some other wild ones added into the liquid culture. With the right facilities and raw materials, the creation of this popular organic fertilizer is not impossible. However, it can easily be purchased from various manufacturers.

The fact is…

Effective Microorganisms is a trademark of the EM Research Organization, Inc.

In the US as well as in other countries, however, there are many other similar products readily available to organic farmers. While for sure there are numerous excellent ones out there, it’s also not unlikely for the rip-off to be around that may yield less satisfactory results.

Scientific researches have found that the use of Effective Microorganisms can provide many other results than just improving the soil’s quality and health. It has been found out that this organic compost is valuable in helping crops beat diseases such as botrytis. Protection against weevils and other commonly encountered stressors by farmers also help ensure the well-being of plants.

It’s easy to see why composting and Effective Microorganisms can be beneficial to one’s agricultural productivity. There are also many other wonderful EM uses around.

They may be used for cleaning polluted water and cleaning sewers. Organisms present are helpful in sanitizing medical facilities and dealing with oil spills. As mentioned earlier, it is used for fermenting purposes, allowing for the production of many fermented food products. EM is also known to be highly effective in controlling insects, as well addressing odor and preventing certain diseases in animals.
