One of the most fascinating aspects of composting is that it still retains elements of art . . . Producing good compost requires the same level of knowledge, engineering, skill, and art required for producing good wine.
From the Humanure Handbook
Find a pot or container and a sunny space. Take the vegetable waste from your kitchen and combine it with some soil. Let it breathe. Watch the soil slowly change colour, darken, as tiny micro organisms unleash their energy within the soil, churning, helping decay and slowly building health and life. It’s thriving when you take a nap, it’s pulsing when you’re sipping your tea and reading a book, it’s alive.
Funny how rotting and decay can be so happiness-inducing :)
