The short answer is yes. Each year a farm produces crops or is grazed, it loses a bit of it’s life. Then there’s all the land that is paved and compacted into cities, homes, or roads. Soil is an increasingly finite resource, one that we can’t afford to lose. Luckily, we have composting. Composting emulates the natural regenerative cycle and replenishes our soils so that they aren’t “used up”.
