Can I Compost?

Absolutely!! While decomposers are found out in nature, they can also live in your backyard. That's because decomposers help in a process called composting, where the natural process of decay is sped up. Some people create homes for decomposers in their backyards by layering leftover food and yard clippings in a pile outside or in a special composting container.
