How to make a Compost Bin that is portable and cost under $40. This bin will hold approximately one cubic yard of material and yield somewhere between 1/2 to 2/3 cubic yard of compost. What I use in this compost bin is shredded wood chips. I layer my carbon/nitrogen 3:1 mixture with 6 inches of wood chips and a soup can equivalent of Alfalfa Pellets on to of each layer, water it in real good and keep layering until you reach the top.
The Original Design of this Compost Bin was created by a Master Gardener and my friend, Joe Scott
