As many states move to ban dumping of yard wastes in their landfills, even non-gardeners are looking for ways to dispose of grass clippings, autumn leaves, & tree trimmings. Composting solves this waste disposal dilemma by using organic waste to build soil fertility & organic matter without polluting groundwater, damaging soil structure, or wasting fossil fuels. This book offers readers an up-close look at composting, with helpful tips for apartment dwellers, suburbanites, farmers, & community leaders. An extensive list of compostable materials helps gardeners select the right ingredients for their compost piles. Plans for three different compost bins & descriptions of a variety of composting methods enable readers to choose techniques best suited to their needs. Readers will also learn how materials break down during composting, how earthworms & other organisms speed the process, & the benefits of composting to the health of the soil & the environment.
"This manual answers almost every question you might have about the alchemy of transforming garbage into magical humus. Methods and materials are discussed. as well as how and when to use the finished product."
