Compost is basically a collection of biodegradable materials gathered and stored together with the purpose of being used as fertilizer, once they have broken down. Things like grass clippings, leaves, banana skins and all types of natural materials can be used to make up compost.
One of the most important things to note about compost is that it should have the right balance of nitrogen and carbon. The right balance of these two substances allows everything to decompose well.
