How is Kitchen 2 Gardens Compost made?

Kitchen 2 Gardens compost is ideal for use as a soil conditioner. It helps to:

  • Increase water holding capacity of soil;
  • Provides slow releasing organic nutrients;
  • Improves microbial activity in the soil; and
  • Reduces compaction and increases aeration, improving soil drainage.
