These days, everyone's talking about compost.

Along with backyard chickeners, balcony beekeepers, rooftop farmers, and community gardeners, urban composters are part of a bumper crop of pioneers who are redefining the green space of crowded towns and cities.

You may think you need a big yard to compost. Think again. Compost City teaches you how to easily choose and care for a compost system that fits perfectly into your (tiny) space, (busy) schedule, and (multifaceted) lifestyle.

Whether you live in a cramped apartment or a sprawling town house, or you dream of composting in a shared space with a group of friends or colleagues, Compost City provides simple and effective indoor and outdoor composting options.

Packed with research, expert testimonies, and a healthy dose of humor, Compost City will help you:

* compost your food scraps and yard waste with ease
* ease your fears of backbreaking labor, obnoxious odors, big messes, and creepy crawlies (hint: you can compost successfully without any of the above!)
* convince compost-wary family, friends, neighbors, and community leaders to green-light your compost dreams Compost City serves all eco-curious citizens from casual hobbyists to staunch activists.

Put your compost cap on. Whether you compost one tea bag or whole honking barrelfuls of scraps at a time, you're about to have a whole lot of fun .

Compost City is a fresh look at indoor and outdoor composting in small urban spaces. The author’s humorous yet informative style will inspire you to start composting, even if you’ve had reservations about lack of space, time or know-how. My favorite part was “Weird Worm Behavior Explained.”
