Green Gardening and Composting

... “Aloian defines “green gardening” as “planting and growing a healthy garden that is good for the environment.” In 11 quick chapters, readers will learn such tips as how to remove pests with natural repellents like garlic and cayenne pepper and “how to get help from birds and insects.” Suggestions are punctuated by “Take Action!” boxes, where readers are encouraged to keep a green diary or look for unusual planters, such as old boots or cookie tins. Aloian quickly moves into composting, explaining the process and making the case for its ease of use at home. The transition from dinner table to compost heap is illustrated with full- color photographs, which also display the natural beauty of rooftop and community gardens. A succinct product of the Green Scene series, this inclusive title points its green thumb in the right direction for beginners.” --- Booklist, 02/14
