-- The Book Cubby --

Yesterday, I was sent a notice by Zetta Hupf, owner of The Book Cubby to let me know that our radio show, Conscious Discussions, is featured on her site. She invited me via email to send some information about us for her site and I thought she might be looking at putting a link to one of our books... but instead she did this lovely featured spot that sits on the left hand side of her site where everyone can see it. You can view it by clicking on the hyper-link above.

-- Why You Need A Composting Bin --

*Guest article by Chris Daily

Most people understand the concept of recycling. Many know about the concept of compost and the process of composting. What many people do not know is that these 2 concepts are directly related, especially if you are a gardener that is using a composting bin. Here are a few reasons why you need your own worm composting bin.

Did you know that thousands of tons of organic waste is thrown away each and every day. If you know anything about the process of composting, you know that by using your organic scraps from the kitchen table, along with a bin of red worms and some dirt, you can create a compost producing factory all generated by your worm bin.

There are many types of worm bins that you can buy and make. Some of the more high tech worm compost bins are able to separate the worm compost from worm castings using a quick and easy vibrating system. If you don't have the money, it is easy enough to do with a simple screen.

The most important thing when making your worm bin is to make sure that it is not air tight. If it does not have good air flow, the worms will die and the waste you are putting into the bin will begin to rot and smell due to decomposition.

Another by-product of this process is what is called worm tea. It is a liquid that is formed from the worms processing the organic material in the bin. It makes for a great spray fertilizer that can be used on the leaves of the plants. Just make sure that you continually rotate your composting bin and you will be on your way to a healthier garden this year.
