Comments for Compost Stew

Compost Stew: 07/10/11

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)When we moved to our current home we made the decision to compost. Given where we'd be keeping it and the wide range of temperatures that our patio goes through over the course of a year (from freezing to over 100° F) we knew it wouldn't make sense to get a worm composter. We opted for a bin that just relies on microbial decomposition.

My son was two when he helped me build the compost bin. For my daughter, it's just been a permanent feature of our balcony garden her entire life. Composting is what we as a family do.

Compost Stew by Mary McKeena Siddals then was a must read picture book for both my children. It's organized as an alphabet book with a composting suggestion for each letter.

I would recommend the book as a story time book for Earth day or a read-along at schools that run a campus garden.

Five stars.
