Gelesen von Betsie Bush

(4,439 Sterne; 33 Bewertungen)

The art and science of composting is presented in a humorous and readable manner from the basic elements to the in-depth science. An entire chapter is devoted to composting with red worms (vermiculture), and detailed information is provided on building different types of composting units. The history of the organic gardening movement is included as well as an annotated bibliography of works on the subjects of composting and food gardening.

Note by soloist: this book has been entered into the public domain by the author and has been cleared through Project Gutenberg. I have also contacted the author personally and received verification of his intentions. (7 hr 35 min)

Great book, decent reading voice, BAD RECORDING.

(4 Sterne)

Great book explaining organic composting and methodology. Decent reading of the content, but bad recording, fades in and out as the reader shifts to and away from the microphone making parts of reading inaudible. Otherwise a great book.

Very good detail

Evidently this author is vastly researched and experienced in this field. He also provided references that can duplicate his ability in all who read his work.
