I purchased the book so that I could turn kitchen vegetable scraps into compost and eventually to compliment my organic soil whereby I am growing medicinal herbs in a small window green house. I can't say how excited I was to discover this process and before going anywhere else I decided to check out Overstock's book inventory to see if they carried this book as I am a Club O member. Much to my excitement they did! If you live in an apartment / condo like me and are looking for an ecological and inexpensive solution to fertile soil for your small window garden then look no further! The answers can be found within the pages of the Bokashi Composting book!
