A full-color guide for both beginners and experienced composters, with an A–Z reference section

Composting is fun, easy and very satisfying! You can make compost even if you live in an apartment or don’t have access to a garden. There are lots of good reasons to make compost:

  • A third to two-thirds of the average garbage can contents can be composted, so you can lighten your bin—and stop it smelling.
  • Less organic material is sent to landfill, so less noxious liquids and greenhouse gases—especially methane—are produced.
  • Composting saves you money—you won’t need to buy any more peat-based compost!

This book will give you all the information you need for successful composting.
