Prepare soil incorporation ingredients.

Get ready to create the perfect meal with the best ingredients.

Soil incorporation can be used for most organic material such as fruits, vegetables, cereals, grains, breads, tea bags, and coffee grinds. However, soil incorporation is not the best method for composting large amounts of food scraps. Residents who wish to compost larger amounts of food scraps should consider vermicomposting.

Do not attempt to compost meat, bones, grease, fats oils, and dairy products as this material is likely to attract animals.

Next step: learn about combining food scraps with soil.
