I'm a college student, and I'm living in an apartment on campus. I want to compost my fruits, vegetables, and tea bags in my apartment but I do not know how to start. Unfortunately, my apartment does not have a garden or a balcony, but I have several indoor plants. How do you start composting in an apartment without a garden or a balcony?
