You can collect and add to your inventory if you use a composter to convert food and plant material into bone meal. You can use the bone meal to make a variety of useful items.

How does the composter work?
During composting, microorganisms eat the organic (carbon containing) waste and break it down into its simplest parts. This produces a humus with carbon and nitrogen. The material is broken down by aerobic and anaerobic processes. Microorganisms also break down cellulose, which is the main component of plant cell walls.
Cellulose is used in the manufacture of paper, textiles, plastics, and other products. It is also used as a feedstock for the production of biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel.
What happens to food in compost bin?
Compostables are shredded to facilitate the breaking down of materials. The shredded material is laid out in rows and covered to retain heat, so the naturally-occurring microbes can process the material and break it down into its component parts. Cleaning is the process of removing the organic matter from a compost pile.
It is done by using a combination of heat and pressure to break down organic material into smaller and smaller pieces, which are then placed in a container and allowed to sit for a period of time before being placed back in the pile to be broken down further.
What gives the most bone meal in Minecraft?
The most efficient farm types to connect the bone meal farm with are melon slice or cactus farms, as either can generate a lot of bone meal per hour if the farm is big enough.
Do compost bins smell?
The odors are likely to be present even under optimum conditions. In addition, composting can result in the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air, which can be harmful to health and the environment. If you have questions about the safety of your compost, you should contact your local county health department or the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) at 1-800-FDA-1088.
FSIS is the federal agency responsible for food safety and inspection of food processing plants and food facilities.

Do you add water to compost bin?
Composting materials need to be between 40 and 60 percent water. When the conditions are too wet, water will fill the space needed for air movement. The material will not be able to decomposition if the conditions are too dry.
If your compost has been in the compost pile for a long time, you may have noticed that it is starting to smell. The smell is caused by bacteria, fungi, or other organisms that have colonized the pile. It may be a good idea to take a sample of the soil to check for the presence of these organisms.
Is composting really worth it?
Composting is absolutely worth it for anyone that wants to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Composting reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and leaves you with a natural fertilization that can nourish your plants. You have the option of choosing a method that’s suited to your needs.
What happens if you use too much compost?
Soils with excessive compost applications, particularly manure, tend to develop high concentrations of nutrients such as ammonium, calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. High concentrations of bicarbonates, carbonates and nitrates can be detrimental to the health of the soil in these soils.
In addition, excessive application of manure can result in the release of methane, a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. This gas is a major contributor to climate change, as methane is 20 times more potent at trapping heat than carbon dioxide.
