Composting helps the environment by making free nutrients that arenot factory processed. Composting worms help keep the cycle ofdecomposition going without giving off hideous gasses.
An example of a blue or purple flower whose spelling begins withthe letter "c" is columbine.
Organic organisms affect erosion by influencing soil formationprocesses and soil properties. They assist in the formation ofhumus by decomposing leaves and twigs. The decomposition intoorganic matter influences macro- and micro-nutrient amounts, suchas of calcium, magnesium and potassium, and pH...
Lifting a plant from a nursery bed and planting in its permanent home is one type of replanting. Another type is when a field is planted, but is lost early in the season due to flooding or other factors, and the field is planted again that same season.
A compost pile is not self-sustaining as it requires human effortto apply material for composting and to remove the preparedcompost.
you can try the organic material of bamboo leaves.
Organic layers are part of the soil.
Organic food is better because non-organic food is sprayed withchemicals to help foodstuffs stay in season even though syntheticsprays are hazardous for people.
  == Answer ==   They both perform the same function. Straw will be cleaner and have fewer seeds in general and fewer weed seeds in particular. 
can by using Trichoderma sp, Bacillus sp.   to quickly and whether composting depends on the amount of  bacterial populations that work, the more the faster, my experience  is 2 weeks in composting.   for more details can be studied together in my blog.
  Trees rot due to fungus's. Usually a tree is attacked by an insect or maybe damaged by humans. The areas that are attacked or damaged can be contacted by small fungi and then it multiplies and multiplies and causes the tree to rot.
yes, wood is an organic substance and like all things organic it can decompose. the smaller the wood is the quicker it decomposes.
Not necessarily. If your compost is fermenting properly from bacterial activity it will be too hot for worms to survive in it.
While there are certainly exceptions, modern agribusiness-type industrial farming generally takes less of the farmer's time per unit harvested. It does not speed up the rate of maturation of the crop, it simply means s/he can culture more acres than with organic farming. On average, a single person...

Organic food mold faster, since non organic foods are processed with artificial preservatives to make the food last longer.
A more gabage or C fertilizer
They could be termites. While termites are best known for inhabiting the woodwork of houses, they can also build huge mounds in the dirt.
The main disadvantage that the content and strength varies so it is difficult to add the correct quantity.
No, because it is a plant.
A PLU (not a barcode) that has 5 numerals, beginning with the numeral 9, indicates organic produce. Perhaps others can add to this answer?
Generally speaking, the main difference is in the amount of labor involved. Organic farming typically takes more labor to produce the same kind of crop as in intensive farming, due to the lack of industrially-produced pesticides and fertilizers. While there are organic pesticides and fertilizers,...
Yes , organic insecticides have their limitations. Among the finest examples of organic insecticides are horticultural oil and insecticidal soap. Horticultural oil tends to be most effective against insect eggs. Insecticidal soap tends to be more effective during the other stages of the insect life...
at least one inch a year. doing this will allow for good stuff to be put into the soil. if you are look too correct physical problems (such as bad drainage and structure of the soil) just add a lot more then that. ideally we do not add enough compost to our gardens.
Yes, but if it's granulated, make sure you sprinkle it around, so it doesn't just all settle at the bottom.
The Cheez-It brand is not organic. However, I'm sure you can find some other brands that make organic cheese crackers. Check your local health food store, or the organic food section of your local grocery store (if they have one).

Compost is used to add nutrients to the soil, in other words it will definatly make your garden grow
I believe so.Diluted with 3 parts water to 1 part urine.
Start the pile when it is warm out. Make the pile three parts "brown" (dead and drying stuff) and one part "green" (recently growing stuff). Also shred the stuff so it is small. Covering is a good idea too, it will keep the moister in and the rain from washing away. and string the pile once a week...
Because they want to use it in their gardens.For one thing, composting all organic matter (kitchen scraps, yard waste, manure, etc.) reduces the amount of garbage that has to go into landfills.

The smaller the particles, the faster they break down. So, newpaper pulp would break down much faster than a whole sheet of newspaper.
There isn't really a best. But, a good compost would be,... VEGETABLES!!! Anything natural cut up into many little pieces will do
organic farming is an agricultural system that seeks to provide you, the consumer, with fresh, tasty and authentic food while respecting natural life-cycle systems.
Earthworms stir up the dirt and spread the nutrients to other plants and trees. They also eat the dead leaves so there won't be dead leaves sitting around everywhere.
