All about composting
Food scraps and yard waste make up nearly a third of the stuff we throw away, according to the EPA. But that waste can be used to enrich soil, thwart plant disease, and decrease the need for fertilizers. Suki Janssen is the director of the Athens-Clarke County Solid Waste Department and co-coordinator of the Athens Master Composter Program. She sat down with Chris Shupe and Laura Ney of the UGA Extension Service to talk composting.
