DIY Compost Bin Tumbler
Make your own Barrel style Compost Tumbler. This is a low cost, easy project that can be completed in just a few hours.
The tumbler can be made from any barrel that has a locking removable top. The plans completely describe how to equip the inside of the barrel with an air chamber that allows the compost to mix with air to shorten the time it takes for the compost to cure. This air chamber also helps mix the yard debris when spinning the barrel. The air chamber can also be used to water the compost in order to keep the contents moist.
The barrel holds constant moisture in the mix to aid the curing process.
It’s easy to load and unload and is light enough to easily be moved anywhere on your property.
