If you like things that are free and natural, then compost checks both boxes when it comes to fertilizing your garden and even your houseplants. In this episode, I'm talking to Michelle Balz about her book, No Waste Composting: Small-Space Waste Recycling Indoors and Out.
We discuss free and inexpensive ways that you can turn your waste into black gold. We start by talking about the benefits of composting, and then discuss composting basics, including both regular composting and vermicomposting.
The book includes ideas about how to create composting systems both indoors and out, including how to compost pet manure! (No, not in your regular compost pile!) One of my favorite ideas in the book is how to turn an old garbage can into a compost tumbler.
We also talk about mistakes beginners make, and we conclude with how to use your finished compost.
