What happens when food is not consumed? According to the Pyramid of Food Waste, it is best for food that has not been consumed from people or animals, to be composted and turned into organic fertiliser, which is very useful for the growth of foods and herbs. The composting process returns the organic matter into the soil; it enriches the soil to be fertile and produce qualitative and healthy plants.

We are used to buying fertilisers, but anyone really can make fertiliser for their pots, vases or land where the crops or flowers are planted. All it takes is to respect the general guidelines between green matter and brown matter, to have airflow, enough watering, and in a few weeks, you will have rich organic compost without fchemical fertilisers which damage the soil.
