Présentation de l'éditeur

The Best Place for Garbage is the best place to learn about composting with earthworms.  Worms can easily turn your organic waste into very valuable fertilizer that you can use to make anything green grow better and stronger.  Use it in your garden, on your lawn, on your houseplants, even to make the green in your wallet grow faster by selling worm compost.  Whether you are new to this wonderful process or you want to expand your expertise, this comprehensive tutorial has it all.  Everything is covered: from indoor and outdoor worm homes, how to feed your worms, what to feed your worms, how to harvest the castings and, most importantly, both how and why to use them. 

What sets this book apart is not the telling of what to do (though that part is pretty darn good!), but you will also learn why you are doing what you are doing.  This makes it easy for you to figure out things on your own once you get going.  There are great trouble-shooting tips and tricks to make sure you never fall victim to a smelly worm bin or worse: dead worms.  There are actually many myths surrounding what worms can and cannot eat and where and how they can or cannot live.  Find out the real truth in The Best Place for Garbage as you learn how these myths came to be and why they really are just urban legends (Yes, worms can eat meat.  And citrus.  And bananas.  No, you do not need to drill holes in your bin. Really!)

Told with a very heavy dose of humor and an even bigger helping of common sense, this book is perfect for anyone who gardens, anyone who recycles, anyone who eats.  It is currently estimated that over a third of all waste is made up of organic matter that can be recycled.  Recycling plastics and such is awesome, but in this case, you can personally make a difference and get something valuable in return.  Try that with a water bottle.

Also includes a bonus section of ideas for school and college level science projects.

Biographie de l'auteur

Sandra (Sandi) Wiese is a small-scale commercial worm composter with one simple dream: that someday “I have worms” will not be met with a cringe and “I hope the doctor can give you something for them!”. In all seriousness, after finding so much misinformation regarding organic recycling in the current literature and all over the interwebs, Sandra had no choice but to write a book about how easy, fun and profitable vermicomposting can be, for both you, and the planet.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Style particulier, contenu assez intéressant 25 juin 2013
Format:Format Kindle
L'enthousiasme de l'auteur est communicatif, les informations présentées sont souvent utiles, mais j'ai trouvé le style humoristique assez lourd à la longue. Le livre pourrait plaire aux personnes recherchant un livre ludique et léger sur le vermicompostage, mais si vous cherchez des informations fiables et claires allez voir ailleurs.

Note sur l'édition Kindle (lue sur Kindle 3) : Bonne présentation, ras.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very informative, easy to read, and funny 21 mai 2011
Par Julie C - Publié sur Amazon.com
My husband and I decided to get composting worms about three years ago. We read the famous book by worm pioneer Mary Appelhof and did other research online, but when the worms came, we still had a lot of questions that were unanswered. Our worms didn't eat fast enough to keep up with our households production of orange peels and other refuse. Despite what Appelhof's book said, we still have to compost. Plus, we were stressed about keeping the humidity exactly right.

In the end, our worms lived, but I wish I had read this book before we started our adventure. This book tells you absolutely everything you need to know about owning composting worms. The author starts at the very beginning, with how to build your own containers, or what to buy if you get them commerically (as we did - because we didn't know better), and goes on to explain how to buy your first batch of worms and how to care for them. She is passionate about worms and recycling. Very passionate. Throughout the book, you can tell that she really cares about her readers and she wants them to be succcessful with worms without having to work too hard to get there. Her writing style is entertaining and her enthusiasm is contagious. Also, she's really funny.

I'm going to gift this book to people who want to raise worms. I may even suggest it to my library (that's where we got the Appelhof book). It's leaps and bounds more informative than anything else I've read about worms. And fun reading. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun, Humorous, and Helpful! 10 mai 2011
Par George Reis - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have a large organic garden in my small city lot in Southern California and raised worms, for the purpose of making my own vermicompost, using a commercial worm bin several years ago. I had all the problems that come with this type of bin that Wiese brings up in her excellent book - plus more! I gave up and thought that I just didn't know how to make this work. Well, I'm about to give it a try again because the approaches in this book seem like they will prevent most of the problems - the information is incredible, for both indoor worm bins (I wouldn't have imagined that I'd actually try this, but I'm convinced that it's worth giving it a go), and for outdoor windrows or trenches.

In addition to being useful, the author's sense of humor fills the pages,making it fun to learn all about how to do this, and make it work. I laughed out loud several times while reading, and had to read aloud short segments to anyone who was around at the time. Then, they laughed too!

I'm tempted to give away this book along with homemade bins to those on my gift list this year. I can just see them opening it with that fake smile saying, "Just what I wanted." but then thanking me over and over again in future months and years for getting them started on this great venture of converting kitchen waste into wonderful soil.

Thank you Sandi Wiese for such a wonderful gem of a book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 So Glad I Read This! 10 mai 2012

I have done a lot of Internet research about worm bins and I decided to buy this book to get a start to finish guide. I already had a plan in mind for the bin I would use, bedding and harvesting. After completion of this book, my entire plan has changed. All of her ideas are well explained and when she goes against other recommendations, she makes so much sense. I am so glad I got this book before I started drilling holes in my bin.

I am after the garden gold that comes with composting, but I love her Eco-friendly take. We shouldn't be spending money and acquiring items to recycle. That just makes so much sense. I spent a good part of the day contemplating how often we are being pushed to buy more things to save the planet. But back to the review...

Any questions you have will be answered. Every single topic that I could think of is covered in the book from setting up the bin to what to do with the finished product after harvest.

This book was an extremely fast and very humorous read. I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style.

My worms are on the way and I can't wait to get started!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The BEST 7 mai 2011
Par D. Renegar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have read many worm composting books to determine if I want to get into composting with worms. The has to be by far the best worm raising / composting book I have read. She not only gives you ALL the information you need to know but puts it in a way that is light-hearted and comical. Not often would I expect to read a book on worm composting and have to chuckle and have a smile on my face while reading. I would love to see her composting "farm - for her barn is not big enough for all the saddles the worms would require to ride horses to be called a ranch" and to meet her. I know her outlook on life would be contagious. I highly recommend this book IF you are really contemplating getting into worm composting and keeping your garbage out of the landfill. You will also produce the best compost for gardening money can buy.

I really love this book! I can't imagine someone not liking it. Maybe they were looking for a different subject, who knows! But, I enjoyed it. I'm starting this new adventure in my life and now I have a good reference book. Wish I would have read this BEFORE I bought my bin (s), but I will try to make a go of it. Like she says I need to just start over, and do it right. Thanks for writing such a funny and informative book!
