089-Composting Guide A to Z: The Quick and Dirty on Everything Compost – Encore Presentation

| Care, Podcast

At the time of this release, I’m in Phoenix, Arizona as a keynote speaker at the annual conference of the U.S. Composting Council. Not only is this a great event, but it’s made even better since the focus is one of my favorite subjects – compost, of course. In honor of the event, I felt it would be appropriate to share an encore presentation of a popular compost podcast.

This episode was early on in The joe gardener Show series. Whether you’re new to composting or you’ve composted before and hit a few road bumps, this episode is packed with information to help. After all, composting does not need to be difficult. It’s one of the best things we can do for our garden, and it’s a valuable and easy way to make a positive impact on our environment at large – by reducing waste in our landfills and reducing greenhouse gases.



There is nothing better you can add to your soil than compost. It offers a wide array of benefits for healthy soil and plants.


Does your soil need some improvement? Are your plants not as healthy as they could be? Compost is key to gardening success, so don’t wait to get started making your own.

One more thing – although this podcast provides a lot of great tips and information for composting, I’ve got lots more to share that couldn’t fit within the hour show. For that, check out my Complete Guide to Home Composting e-book. It’s completely free, and it’s one of the best things I’ve ever written. I hope it helps you this season.
