Attend a Composting Workshop on Maui

Composting not only saves landfill space but also serves as a great growth stimulant for your garden. Adding compost to your soil also benefits the environment. The improved ability of the soil to soak up water helps to prevent soil erosion caused by rainwater washing away soil particles and no more need for fertilizers as the microorganisms that plants need for growth are plentiful in compost.
