More Description

Back-to-basics gardening that will benefit the earth and your wallet

Want to use ordinary waste to create an extraordinary garden? Composting lets you turn household food waste, yard clippings, and more into free compost and mulch that's chock-full of nutrients. From building and working with traditional compost bins to starting an indoor worm-composting operation, Composting For Dummies makes these often intimidating projects easy, fun, and accessible for anyone

Digging into compost basics -- get a handle on the benefits of composting and the tools you'll need to get started

Choosing the best method and location -- find the best composting method and location that's right for you, whether it's above ground, in a hole, in a container or bin, or even right in your kitchen

Building your pile -- learn which ingredients can go into your compost pile, what stays out, and how to mix it all up in the right proportions

Stepping beyond traditional composting -- get the lowdown on vermicomposting (letting worms eat your garbage), growing green manures to compost later, and sheet composting in the same spot you plan to plant
