Compost Pile

Compost Pile Definition: 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.[1] In low-temperature phases, a number of micro-organisms, such as springtails, ants, nematodes, isopods, and earthworms also contribute to the process, as well as soldier fly, fruit flies, and fungus gnats. There is a wide range of organisms in the decomposer community. [2]Taken from Wikipedia.org
