  1. the difference between using worms in a composter and typical soil decomposition
  2. the benefits of composting and methods of decomposition when you have time and space constraints
  3. describe brown composting versus green composting
  4. outline the types of materials that can be used for composting and how we can compost at the North Campus garden
