"Marion cuts through all the misinformation, contradictions, and confusion that's out on the internet about composting and gardening. I have LOVED being a part of the Compost Academy.

"This was money well spent. For 20+ years I wasted my time composting. It took six months to make a batch of compost that made little difference to our garden anyway. I now understand what actually happens in a compost heap and I have a whole new level of enthusiasm for gardening."
