Welcome to the team!
I've been composting for a number of years. There's a number of good websites out there for information. I don't get too crazy with PH balances, I just compost. We have a ton of leaves in the fall, a ton of grass in the summer, ashes from the fireplace in the winter and the rest is coffee grounds, food scraps etc...Just try to bury the food scraps (we have had rat problems before) they have to eat too but they also like our attic in the winter ( a nightmare! )

Turn often and water. Keep a bucket near your shower and fill with the cold "pre-shower" water. Great for plants and composting etc...

Good Luck!

Welcome and thanks for the book suggestions. I'll check and see if our library has them.

Welcome - and yes, I think there are numerous threads on this site that address green cleaning. You can also find some at www.coolmomscare.org.

Welcome to the team! I was in Boise for a conference a couple years ago and was pretty impressed! Bike paths/trails and racks everywhere!

Hi Everyone,

I am so glad that I found this team. I have been doing a lot of reading lately on going green and have been trying hard to make changes. I have always been aware, but now I am really starting to make the effort.

Anyway, I wanted to share two great books that I read a while back.
Go Green Live Rich -David Bach
Ready, Set, Green-Graham Hill & Meaghan O'Neill

I live in Boise and luckily, it is a fairly eco-friendly city-bike riding is popular, there are a lot of local farmers markets, people recycle etc. I love the local markets-the food just tastes so much better!

Well, I am currently researching gardening and would also like to learn to compost. Any tips would be great.

Oh, and if anyone has some easy homemade recipes for household cleaning I would be appreciative.

Thanks; I look forward to this group.
