By taking the time to listen to him, you can learn more about the importance of keeping organic matter buried within the soil. From there, creating nutrient rich soil for your plants is even easier.

To get started, Singh uses various scraps for his kitchen. Vegetable and fruit peels, coffee grounds and eggshells are included among them. The scraps that he chooses tend to be rich in various nutrients, such as potassium, nitrogen and phosphorus. All of these nutrients are highly essential to plant growth. Don’t throw away these scraps or toss them in a compost heap. They should be buried in the garden soil instead.

By taking the time to do so, your nutrients have the chance to slowly break down. This allows your plants to receive a steady supply of nutrients over the course of time. Singh also recommends purchasing cardboard for the garden, in addition to burying grass clippings and any fallen leaves that you would typically find when you’re cleaning up the yard.
