Nature Recycles

Hands holding fresh compost material in the shape of a heart

Decomposers are nature’s recyclers. When plants and animals die, decomposers break them down and release nutrients back into the environment where other living organisms can use them. By composting organic wastes, such as food scraps and garden cuttings, we are reducing the amount of waste going into landfill sites and we are creating a resource that both improves soil structure and adds essential nutrients to soil. Get ready to explore the outdoors with these activities in nature.
