These days, everyone's talking about compost.

Along with backyard chickeners, balcony beekeepers, rooftop farmers, and community gardeners, urban composters are part of a bumper crop of pioneers who are redefining the green space of crowded towns and cities.

You may think you need a big yard to compost. Think again. Compost City teaches you how to easily choose and care for a compost system that fits perfectly into your (tiny) space, (busy) schedule, and (multifaceted) lifestyle.

Whether you live in a cramped apartment or a sprawling town house, or you dream of composting in a shared space with a group of friends or colleagues, Compost City provides simple and effective indoor and outdoor composting options.

Packed with research, expert testimonies, and a healthy dose of humor, Compost City will help you:

 compost your food scraps and yard waste with ease
 ease your fears of backbreaking labor, obnoxious odors, big messes, and creepy crawlies (hint: you can compost successfully without any of the above!)
 convince compost-wary family, friends, neighbors, and community leaders to green-light your compost dreams

    Compost City serves all eco-curious citizens from casual hobbyists to staunch activists.

    Put your compost cap on. Whether you compost one tea bag or whole honking barrelfuls of scraps at a time, you're about to have a whole lot of fun.
