    I started my first compost bin today It was

    fun, relaxing. As I did it I tuned in to the world around me. The sky, leaves in trees, the smell of cool black earth, clouds drifting by like slow moving waves, the muscles moving in my body: contracting - expanding. Mindfulness is cool and brings me back to earth. Couple it...

    With lasagna gardening it is done by sheet composting whereby the scraps and weeds and old boots if you like are all dumped in one spot... well, layered on top of each other. It's all recycled in one spot. It really looks like a pig's breakfast, but boy oh boy does it...
