About this food


Composting is the purposeful biodegradation  of organic matter, such as yard and food waste. The decomposition  is performed by micro-organisms, mostly bacteria, but also yeasts and fungi.  In low temperature phases a number of macro-organisms, such as springtails, ants, nematodes, isopods and red wigglers  also contribute to the process, as well as soldier fly, fruit flies and fungus gnats. There are a wide range of organisms in the decomposer community.
