Description - The Rodale Book of Composting by Grace Gershuny
An essential guide to composting for all gardeners and environmentally conscious people
This revised edition of The Rodale Book of Composting includes all the latest in new techniques, technology, and equipment. Gardeners know composting is the best way to feed the soil and turn food scraps into fresh produce, but even urbanites can get on board thanks to programs like compost pickup and citywide food waste initiatives-there's no better way to reduce landfill waste (and subsequent emissions) and dependence on fossil fuels while nourishing the earth.
The Rodale Book of Composting offers easy-to-follow instructions for making and using compost; helpful tips for apartment dwellers, suburbanites, farmers, and community leaders; and ecologically sound solutions to growing waste-disposal problems.
