Composting is easy and fun, it saves you money and helps you grow lovely plants. More importantly, it is good for the environment, as it massively reduces the amount of noxious methane gas generated from burying food waste in landfill. It’s great for the soil and a great way to learn about nature. Written by Nicky Scott, the author of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, this book shows you how to go about composting.
“Written with flair, this book will give you confidence as a beginner or improve your technique if you’re a habitual composter.”
– The Ecologist
“Clearly written and cross-referenced, this book draws on a wide composting experience”
– Sue Stickland, author of Back Garden Seed Saving
“Compost publishing doesn’t get any better. […] The insights, ideas and inspiration that flow from its pages lift it far beyond the ostensibly mundane practice of leaving dead stuff in a pile to rot.”
