"Backyard composting is one of the hottest green trends of the 90's"--LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 6, 1991. BACKYARD COMPOSTING is an easy step-by-step guide for people who want to take recycling to the next level, reduce their trash by 30-50% & grow healthy plants. Composting is the natural process of recycling yard clippings & other organic material into rich, fertile soil. BACKYARD COMPOSTING will show you how easy it is to: START--discusses all types of composting bins & accessories; includes instructions to build a composting bin from scrap materials; MAINTAIN--includes easy-to-make "hot recipes", time-saving tips & a troubleshooting chart; USE--compost feeds your soil & reduces plant water requirements. Save $$ by making your own free fertilizer at home. Communities are turning to composting because landfills are closing. Home composting allows people to take individual responsibility for the trash crisis. Cities have already distributed over 500,000 composters with one million more to be delivered in the next 18 months. Harmonious Technologies consults with municipalities in developing composting programs. BACKYARD COMPOSTING is the number one program handbook & source of information on composting today.
