Description
In an earthy little book full of worms, rotten food, and bacteria, Ben Raskin takes a lighthearted, fun-filled approach to encouraging family composting. Raskin, the Head of Horticulture at Britain's Soil Association, makes worms the hero of the story, which includes a pullout worm-measuring chart, a "Worms and Ladders" board game, and a Worm Lovers' Society Card, as well as a "Can I Compost It?" wheel and four pages of stickers. The book is packed with information about how to build and tend hot and cold compost piles, and is itself suitable for composting—just take out the two recyclable binding posts first, and toss it in.

"Raskin conveys the truly magical and healing powers of composting to a new generation who are about to inherit our precious Earth."—Patrick Holden

"This book will really engage families to get their hands dirty and make compost together. With plenty of easy-to-follow advice, it will help you make your garden a healthier and more biodiverse place."—Kew magazine (Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London)
