rotating composting system

Dear Laura and others,

concerning composting we have good experiences with rotating composting
barrels. They are easy to fill, easy to turn (with transmission and chain
used in ordinary bikes) and do a quick composting job even during the winter
season. since the barrels are hung up you don`t have any kind of rodent
püroblem either. And everybody who enters the garden can give the barrel an
easy one or two turn. The more often the compost circulates in the bin and
mixes with air the quicker and better the result.

Two bins of about 0.6-1m³ content should be enough for your puposes. Once
the second bin is full the first should be ready for emptying.

For sample pictures take a look at:

green tag "composting station"

Over here some small companies have specialized in producing this system,
but with a little bit of technical skill it can also be constructed in every
back yard workshop.

greetings from old Europe
