Eve Balfour was a key figure in the forming of the organic gardening and farming movement, and one of the founders of Britain's Soil Association.

Common-sense compost making by the quick return method by Maye E Bruce( Book )

7 editions published between 1967 and 1973 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1930s and 40s, Maye Bruce developed a different way of composting to complement the Indore composting system developed by Sir Albert Howard and the complicated Bio-Dynamic composting methods of the Rudolf Steiner school of organic farming. Her "Quick Return Compost System" is aimed at gardeners and smallholders -- the majority -- who don't have access to livestock manure to activate their compost heaps. Instead, the "Q.R." system uses a herbal activator which turns vegetable matter alone into high-quality humus in only a few weeks, and with no need to turn the heap. This activator really works. Sixty years later it is still being made commercially: you can buy it online, or you can make it yourself, from Stinging Nettle, Yarrow, Dandelion, Camomile, Valerian, Oak Bark and Honey. Miss Bruce provides the formula and full instructions for preparation and use, and suggests alternatives if any of the six plants is unavailable
