Compost bin

Nice, black, rich compost is one of the best ways to keep your organic gardening healthy and give it the nutrients it needs. Here are 3 composting solutions you can easily build to make great compost for your garden.

If you’re an organic gardener, you already know you can’t live without compost! Purchasing it can be expensive though – especially if you don’t need a whole truckload, and you’re buying it by the bag.

It’s really easy to make your own, but in some areas, it may not be possible to have an open, messy pile of compost in your yard.

That’s when a composter comes in handy. With a the right design, you can create great compost quickly and easily, without a lot of muss and fuss.

Note: Be sure to choose wood or pallets that are NOT treated with chemicals, which could leach into your compost. Heat treated is generally okay.

Check out these 3 cool composter designs for building your own composter:

About the author 

Rose S.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
