Loved this book. It was short and made things very clear on how to compost and improve your soil. there are some very practical ideas where you don't even need a compost bin and can still compost your grass clippings and fruit/veggie waste. It gets me really excited to have a yard and see how I can improve my garden soil and then in turn my plants.

Thus is a good little booklet. We have been composting for a number of years now but this book added some insight into how we can burn hotter and get a faster compost. Simple to read and full of useful tips and techniques.

I read this little book today, and found out that I just need to be patient. For the smell, I can add more "brown" components (leaves, dried grass, straw), and as the book says several times..."compost happens"

Great quick read on the importance of composting and need for good topsoil as well as excellent references for building compost piles/bins and the importance of good green/brown mix.

Some good points I like the mention of the greywater systems and earthworms etc. A good starter if a tiny bit out of date.

A very, very, very beginner book, possibly aimed at children. The writing is almost distractingly simplistic.

Got it from the library discard, and gave it to Claire since she is closer to starting her own compost pile than I am.
