Do you compost on your property or in your home? Composting is one of the things my husband and I have been doing to cut back on waste. It is suitable for my garden and a great way to help the environment by keeping organic trash outside landfills. While we have Lomi, I wanted something larger since my poor indoor composter can only do so much. Even though we live in a suburb and composting is legal, I wanted to ensure we were doing it right.
As anyone who composts knows, it can easily be a fire risk if not done correctly, which is one of the main reasons you must ensure you are doing it correctly. Luckily, I recently had the opportunity to read a book by an expert in composting – The Compost Coast: Make Compost, Build Soil and Grow a Regenerative Garden – Wherever You Live by Kate Flood. Once I read my complimentary copy of this soon-to-be-released book, I couldn’t wait to share my thoughts!
The Compost Coach: What Is It
Are you looking for a book to help you learn everything you need to know about composting? If so, you will love The Compost Coach by Kate Flood. Here is what the publisher has to say about this new book.
The Compost Coach is a colourful, comprehensive and accessible guide to creating the very best compost AKA garden gold. Kate is on a mission to empower readers to understand the small steps they can take every day to look after the environment and live more sustainability.
The book is pitched at the home composter, including people who live in apartments and houses with or without gardens (yes, you can compost without a garden!). Kate helps the reader to rethink their waste management and teaches them how easy it is to divert food scraps and household carbon away from landfill. She unravels the technicalities of soil science, talks through the building blocks of a robust compost system and busts a few myths along the way. Charming illustrations, how-to photos, and Kate’s warm, entertaining voice complete the package.
The Compost Coach: Our Thoughts
After going through this book, I have to say I love The Compost Coach. The book goes into just about everything you would want to know about composting in an approachable, easy to understand format. The book is filled with fantastic informational graphics and pictures useful for anyone learning about composting.
Along with the basics of composting, it also went into details I had never even considered, such as composting with chickens and being cautious with these natural composters. It also goes through various types of composting, helping you pick the proper method for you and your situation. Honestly, I consider The Compost Coach the best reference book when it comes to composting I have seen, making it a must for anyone who is farming, homesteading, or just wants to be more environmentally friendly.
