This volume presents information about how to produce and make use of compost. Compost is composed of organic materials derived from plants and animals that has been decomposed largely through aerobic decomposition. Compost is rich in nutrients and is beneficial for the land in many ways, including as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer to add vital humus or humic acids, and as a natural pesticide for soil. This guide includes a comprehensive list of what can and can't be composted, concepts and techniques, compost systems, and common problems and solutions. It includes how to: compost food waste safely; get the best out of a Dalek-type plastic composter; making compost from seeds, plants, and cutting; create liquid feed for plants with a wormery; make compost in small areas; and avoid problems such as rats and flies.
