Composting: the quick return method

This method of compost making was originated in a technique given by Dr. Rudolph Steiner, and then worked on by Miss Maye E. Bruce who published the gem of a book that goes by the name of: Common Sense Compost Making by the Quick Return Method. The book’s copyright was left to the Soil Association, and is currently out of print.

Common Sense CompostingI have worked using this method which eliminates the need for turning compost for many years.

If any one would like the recipe for this method I have a precise that may prove useful, it is true to the spirit of Miss Bruce’s book available free.
