Rethink Your Refuse

Hundreds of millions of tons of solid waste are produced in the U.S. annually, and the landfills simply store it, not eliminate it. Recycling diverts significant amounts of waste, but the fact remains that the majority of landfill space is occupied by organic material.

Whether you live on a farm, in the suburbs or a city apartment, composting is possible. Composting Inside and Out will introduce you to the essentials and explore various methods of indoor and outdoor composting to help you find the perfect fit for your lifestyle.

Inside you'll find:

A compete overview of the composting process Advice on finding the right equipment Step-by-step instruction for fourteen different composting methods Ideas for using the soil you produce Quick answers to common problems

Whether you create a compost heap, bury your scraps, ferment them, tumble them or feed them to the worms, you too can be successful with composting. Use the fruits of your labor on you houseplants, your lawn, your flowerbeds or your garden. Put your waste and your energy to good use. Reclaim the benefits of participating in the planet's health through composting--its rewards are simply miraculous.

This book promises to describe the how-tos of 14 different methods of composting. The disorganization of the books layout left me struggling to put the pieces together and coming up short and still confused.
If you like reading about a girl''s love affair with worm composting, this is the book for you. But if you want to know how to compost, look elsewhere.
