COMPOST! Growing Gardens from Your Garbage by Linda Glaser

COMPOST! Growing Gardens from Your Garbage

Email this review


Continuing her contribution to ecology for the very young, Glaser (Tanya's Big Green Dream, 1994, etc.) discusses composting in so inviting a manner than not only readers, but their entire families, might foreswear the expensive garden center and turn the recycling of household wastes into a group endeavor. The methodology and expected results are clearly stated in a rhythmic text, with two final pages offering even more comprehensive data in a question-and-answer format. Although the people look a little stiff, Hariton's watercolors depict the garden as a blossoming, decaying, living, fertile environment, and add to the Earth-friendly feel of the book. Framing borders display seasonal motifs; wildlife abounds in this celebration of decomposition and renewal.
