A method of and apparatus for quickly composting organic material which involves the use of a flexible bag having a plurality of perforations through the body portion of the bag and a composting tablet having a water soluble binder in which is retained a large number of natural micro-organisms, the bag being filled with the organic material and an aqueous solution formed by adding the tablet to a predetermined amount of water. The open end of the bag is thereafter closed and periodically the bag is compressed to force out through the perforations gases resulting from decomposition and then fluffed to draw air into the bag through the perforations. The composting tablet preferably contains enzymes which accelerate the activity of the microorganisms and a nitrogen releasing substance to supply the nitrogen necessary for continued decomposition of the material being composted.
