Compost City: Practical Composting Know-how for Small-Space Living

Compost City: Practical Composting Know-how for Small-Space Living 
By Rebecca Louie
Roost Books, 2015. 209 pages.

According to author Rebecca Louie, anyone can compost, in any living space, any time of the year. This statement sums up Louie’s can-do attitude when it comes to composting in small spaces. First of all, why compost? Composting not only reduces the amount of garbage that goes into landfills, but also produces a lovely rich fertilizer for your household plants or garden. Many people are put-off by the idea of composting, thinking that it takes a large yard, lots of labor, and/or requires the use of creepy crawlies. The good news is that none of the above is required, and with the right system, anyone can compost!

I especially love the readability of this book. Injected
with humor at every turn, Louie makes composting easy to understand and thoroughly enjoyable. Several different composting methods are explained in this book, complete with illustrations and tips and tricks. Out of the many composting books I have read in order to start my own compost, this book is by far my favorite. If you have ever had even a passing interest in composting, definitely give this volume a try.
