Talkback: How to build a compost bin

Posted: 28/03/2014 at 13:30

Ask local builders as they do jobs in your area if you can have their pallets

take them apart ( you will need muscles and a crow bar ) and then build two so you can move compost on to the next one as a previous Allotmenteer said

I made a frame for the top and nailed thick plastic sheeting onto a hinged lid

Plastic and wire netting to go on the earth inside and out to stop weeds and rats

If you check on Google you can find the best atmosphere for rotting down rain no light

Lets us know how you get on please
