If you aren't already hip to the benefits of composting, then now's the time to smarten up. Along with cutting down food waste (which can eventually end up in a landfill and produce hazardous greenhouse gasses), composting food scraps such as fruits, veggies, coffee grounds, and eggshells allows you to create a nutrient-rich soil that will help your plants grow faster and stronger, and increase their water-holding capacity.
