Calling all gardeners.

Looking for a gardening book with fresh ideas and practical tips? Check out Diary of a Compost Hotline Operator by Spring Gillard (New Society Publishers, $15.95 paperback). Gillard stumbled across City Farmer's garden in Vancouver, Canada and decided to leave her corporate career to work on its Compost Hotline. The book chronicles her experiences working the phones as a compost maven. Gillard sheds light on such mysteries as how to compost, what to do with doggie poop (or parrot, goose and lizard poop), and how to keep urban wildlife out of your compost bin. These "edible essays on city farming" are humorous and insightful, and are filled with practical information, advice and a wealth of resources.
