Building A Composter!
Composting is a great way to turn waste into nutrients! You don't have to spend lots of money on a rotary composter. Here is a quick and inexpensive way to start composting. This compost bin was constructed using medium gauge galvanized wire fencing. It holds roughly 1 cubic yard of material, which is about the minimum volume needed for efficient composting It is so easy to construct! All you need is medium gauge galvanized wire fencing, wire cutters, and 20-guage utility wire. Unroll the fencing on the ground, and measure an 11 foot length. It may be necessary to weigh down the fencing, to keep it from rolling up again. Use heavy-duty wire cutters to cut the fencing to the proper size. Stand the fencing up on end, and overlap 3"-4" of the material. Tie the ends of the fencing together with 20-gauge utility wire to finish the bin. The total job takes about 15-20 minutes!
