I would like to think of my husband and I to be pretty self-sufficient, we hunt our own meat, raise chickens, garden, etc... I've heard of alot of people composting, but have no idea why! I am still pretty young and would love to learn as much as I can on self sufficiency, and heard that composting is important. So I would love for anyone who knows composting 101 for some info..why compost, and exactly what goes into a compost pile?!?
