Composting isn’t just for big-time farmers! It’s a great way to reuse food waste and enhance the soil of the average household. This compost bin is a fun project that will reap you benefits in the years to come! What makes this particular version so terrific is its critter-proof bottom. I have one that was purchased years ago, and it just sits on the open ground. Obviously, it does nothing to keep critters out! A complete list is available for items needed, instructions, and pictures for every step of the way.
