: I'm looking for compost recipes using ingredients found only in certain areas (seacoast, desert, etc.) that produce very good results for a particular plant or family of plants (brassicas, crucifers, etc.). Does anyone know of or do this?

I'm not aware of anyone who routinely uses something that isn't a localism in their compost as anything more than a tiny fraction of the total volume.

500 banana peels are still only a speck compared to lawn waste or other high volume materials that are collected locally. Even coffee grounds diligently collected from a Starbucks will most likely still be a minority contributer to most compost piles.
