If you’ve ever been envious of your neighbor’s dirt or just curious about homesteading, then The Ultimate Guide to Soil is perfect for you.

With an emphasis on simple techniques suitable for the backyard gardener, The Ultimate Guide to Soil gives you the real dirt on good soil. Maybe next year your neighbor will be envious of you!

Feed your garden and your garden will feed you. This final installment in The Ultimate Guide to Soil series walks new and experienced gardeners through using dozens of amendments for fertilizing, mulching, and conditioning the organic garden. Hess starts with traditional materials like compost and cover crops, branches out into permaculture goodies such as biochar and hugelkultur, and comes full-circle with both urban and rural waste products including cardboard and humanure. Based on a decade growing all of her family's vegetables using organic techniques, the author steers readers away from potential hazards like weedy straw and heavy-metal-imbued inks. Then she suggests both quick fixes and slow-but-sure options for integrating found and purchased amendments into troubled ground to create a garden paradise. Don't miss this conclusion to a series that has been described as "Easy, useful, and homestead tested." You'll recoup the cost of this book with your first nutrient-dense bunch of homegrown asparagus and the increased flavors in your existing garden will be icing on the cake.

These aren't your grandpa's composting methods, Composting for a New Generation covers the modern composting techniques, vermicomposting, composting with nature, keyhole gardens, organic composting, and using compost. Environmentalists aren't the only ones to compost anymore! It’s not just about reducing food waste; most composters get their hands dirty because of the benefits it brings to the soil in their garden. All the extra nutrients make for well-fed gardens with plenty of nutrients and rich moisture. Composting has “been under the radar screen until now, and seen as a boutique, West Coast thing,” says Jared Blumenfeld, who oversees California as well as two other Western states and the Pacific for the Environmental Protection Agency. “But now everyone from Massachusetts to Minnesota has programs starting up, and pretty soon there will be a critical mass.” Composting for a New Generation includes tried-and-true composting methods and new, innovative techniques. You’ll learn the science of composting, traditional bin composting (including how-to sections on building your own bin), vermicomposting (with worms), composting with nature, keyhole gardens, organic composting, and using your finished compost. Composting for a New Generation is the most complete book to date for your organic soil needs.

Composting is a way to speed up the natural process of decomposition and return organic materials to the soil. Instead of throwing away organic waste, items such as fruit and vegetable scraps, eggshells, coffee grounds, and yard trimmings can be composted. The result is a dark, crumbly material that can be used to improve the soil and beautify gardens, parks, and lawns. This interesting and practical guide explains how composting works and how to start composting, including setting up a bin, adding the right mix of ingredients, aerating the pile, and more. Successful school and municipal programs across the country are highlighted as well.
