    Pets Pet Waste
    By composting your pet waste, you are turning waste into nutrients to feed the soil. In what other ways can you turn waste into a resource in your life?

    I had always heard NOT to include pet waste into your compost pile. This was very informative as some of the articles I read said I could include it in my horse waste compost pile making it an easy addition.
