You can make a Composter by placing seven wooden slabs on the crafting table.

Once you have the slabs you require, get to the crafting table and place them in a U shape. That’s all you need to do.

Players can also collect it from villages. Yes, composters do spawn in the villages, but exploring the locality to find them can be hectic. Hence, the best way to build a composter is by using wooden slabs.

Once you have built the Composter, you can add unwanted plant materials to it. Each material has a probability of getting you a layer of compost. Now, this probability varies from item to item. Regardless, you will have to keep putting the materials and adding a layer of compost.
