COMPOST bin blueprint, containing step-by-step instructions to recycle a wooden cable spool into a rolling compost bin.
Natural compost has long been recognized as providing nutritional advantages for gardens and lawns. However, operating a compost pile takes considerable time and effort. The rolling compost bin greatly simplifies the process, providing a portable unit that you simply spin in order to aerate and keep the compost wet and mixed. Its design allows it to be used anywhere and makes it easier for more people to produce valuable compost in as little as two weeks. Also, because it can easily be tumbled and aerated, it keeps odors to a minimum. Take pride in building it yourself out of locally-sourced recycled materials, and use it for years to come.
Do-it-yourself kits are available here.
