Greetings, gardeners! In case you are new to the Garden Planner, note that our twice-monthly newsletters bring you timely gardening tips and provide a list of customized planting reminders based on your garden plans.

Composting in the office often seems like a far-off dream, but here at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS headquarters, we’ve found an office-friendly solution: a repurposed trash can for the collection bin and a compost bin built from pallets.

Composting is a natural process, similar to the way nature breaks down leaves and other dead material on the forest floor.

If we want to re-create the kind of soft, fertile soil we find under the leaf carpet of a forest rather than the gooey muck of a marsh, we need to think of a compost heap as a living thing that requires the essentials of all living things: air, food, and water in a balanced combination when maintaining a healthy compost pile.
