A little information about composting:

Composting is based on the process of decomposing organic materials. The most typical form of composting uses an outdoor compost bin which can be store-bought and made of plastic, or homemade from chicken wire and wood.

People who garden typically like to establish a "compost pile" where they can add yard waste (grass clippings, leaves, non-woody plant parts, soil) and their collected kitchen scraps - items collected in the Compost Pail. Over time, all these organic ingredients begin to break down (decompose) and the end result is called humus.

Humus can be used as a top dressing mulch for plants, shrubs and trees or added to the soil as an amendment. Any way it is incorporated into the soil greatly benefits plants due to it's rich organic ingredients.

To sum up, composting is the method used to create humus, the nutrient-rich end result.

Gathering organic kitchen and yard waste ingredients makes for a nutritious humus that all your garden and yard plants will thank you for by producing bountiful flowers, fruits and healthy growth.

Summary: Nice piece. I looked at a variety of containers and this one seamed to be the nicest. A bit more than I wanted to spend but compared to others, it is worth the extra $.
