It includes a demonstration of how to build a compost heap, samples of different types of compost piles and bins, what materials can go into the heap, and how compost can be used as a natural fertiliser. The film is narrated and combines live action with animated segments that reiterate the layering process and describes what goes on inside the compost pile.
