What is Compost?  

Compost is the product resulting from the controlled biological decomposition of organic material that has been sanitized through the  generation of heat and stabilized to the point that it is beneficial to plant growth.  Compost bears little physical resemblance to the raw material from which it originated.   Compost is an organic matter resource that has unique ability to improve the chemical, physical and biological characteristics of soils or growing media.  It contains plant nutrients but is typically not characterized as a fertilizer.   

Written by US Composting Council - Field Guide to Compost Use

How is Compost Producted?

Compost is produced through the activity of aerobic (oxygen requiring) microorganisms.  These microbes require oxygen, moisture, and food in order to grow and multiply.  When these resources are maintained at optimal levels, the natural decomposition process is greatly accelerted.  The microbes generate heat, water vapor, and carbon dioxide as they transform raw materials into a stable soil conditioner.  Active composting is typically characterized by high-temperature phase, that sanitizes the product and allows a high rate of decomposition, followed by a lower-temperature phrase, that allows the product to stabalize while still decomposing at a lower rate.  Compost can be produced from many feedstocks.
