How to Build a Garden Composter

Posted by admin on October 24, 2008

Here’s a links to a site that give some instruction on how to build a Garden Composter.

This website describes how to build your own garden composter. If you want small scale composting, just use a smaller plastic bin, a package of fishing worms and your compostables. this bin can even be placed under a counter or on your back porch. use a hand spade for occasional turning.

Another simple method is one that I got from Yahoo Answers:

Use 4 pallets (construction companies have them coming out of their ears, so do large home improvement stores). You lay all four end to end on the ground, then lay a layer of chicken wire on top of them. Staple the chicken wire down, then stand the whole thing up. THat will leave you with one corner not connected. It’ll be very heavy when it’s done, so it’s best to assemble it where you want it to stay. Using this method you will have good air circulation and it’ll be much easier to get inside the bin to stir it up or remove compost.

You can’t get much simpler than that.
