A Penguin Mini Guide

In today's society, where almost everything is designed to be thrown away, waste disposal has become a big issue. Composting is one easy way that anybody can help reduce their personal impact on the environment. Composting not only reduces the amount of waste being added to landfill, but also provides gardeners with an excellent way to nourish and fertilise their soil.

The mini guide to Composting is a practical, easy-to-follow manual to composting, which includes everything you need to know about making and using compost. The guide explains the benefits of composting - to the environment and to your own garden - and describes exactly how composting works.

Readers will learn the comparative benefits of a simple compost versus a managed compost, and how to make the type that best suits their needs. They will also find out when and where to spread the compost once it's ready, how to choose the best compost bin for their needs, and how to start their own worm farm.
