Composting Blogs

Maybe you’ve thought about composting or already are a composter. Either way, composting is a great way to reduce landfill waste. If you are a gardener or want to become one, mixing compost into soil can improve its performance.

Here’s a look at four blogs that any aspiring or experienced composter would love to read.

1. The Compost Bin

As a self-described Compostwoman, and Master Composter, this blogger lives in Herefordshire, England on 4 acres of land. She and her family grow much of their own food, and make a lot of compost.

Why Compostwoman? Why call it The Compost Bin?, Organic gardening and Hungry Bin and Can O Worms sort out are great posts to help get you started.
