Hi, Dorene,

Amen! I agree that the 'Humanure Handbook' is an excellent resource. In terms 
of understanding compost and applications to soils, I'd add a couple of web 
resources: Elaine Ingham's site <A HREF="www.soilfoodweb.com">Soil Food Web
</A> and the Cornell University composting site <A 
Composting</A>, both for good solid (and readable) scientific grounding in 
basic principles, and the national Master Composter website <A 
HREF="www.mastercomposter.com">Master Composter</A> for lots of links to 
local folks doing composting and practical ideas.
