COMPOSTING FOR A NEW GENERATION
Author: Michelle Balz
Whether you garden on a small city lot or a large country property, Composting for a New Generation covers everything you need to know to make great compost quickly.
Composting is not just about reducing food and yard waste; it’s also about improving the health of your soil and the productivity of your garden. Compost contains nutrients and beneficial microbes that help plants thrive, but store-bought compost is expensive and often packaged in non-recyclable plastic bags. Instead of running to the store to purchase compost, learn how to make your own rich, earthy compost and watch your garden thrive.
Composting for a New Generation explains the complex science behind effective and efficient composting in layman’s terms and includes detailed information on tried-and-true composting methods and new, innovative techniques. From traditional bin composting (including step-by-step instructions for building your bin) and vermicomposting to keyhole gardens and trench composting, you’ll close the cover with all the knowledge needed to be an expert composter today. Plus, you’ll learn how to use all that “home-cooked” compost successfully.
