Composting with the FBI

No matter who we are or where we live, every human being needs food to survive. From pickles to pizza, all food comes from the earth! In order to grow food, we need topsoil, which is the top six inches of the earth's soil. One way to keep topsoil healthy is to add compost. Compost looks like dirt. It is dark like chocolate, smells fresh like rain, and contains many nutrients, or vitamins that help plants grow. Nature creates compost with help from the FBI!
