How to Compost Book Recommendation

Post  tred1956 on 6/30/2016, 4:45 pm

Hi,
 Been reading a lot of online articles and watching videos, but was wondering what books are most used or relied on most by the good folks here?

Is there a How To "Bible" for composting?????

Thanks
Doug

I have the Rodale book of composting which is great. But I think the best site I've seen about composting in general is the Cornell Composting website.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

I found this interesting for making compost bins, sifters, etc.

The Complete Compost Gardening Guide by Pleasant and Martin is a nice book.
