Synopsis:

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.


Review:
