Thanks to this book, I will one day purchase a Bokashi Bucket. It's an indoor composting system and it is AWESOME. Google it, read about it, love it - It will change your life.

Robyn
gift from Johnas at Xmas. we both expect this is mostly not new info, but worth having on hand anyway
Sarah Ethington
