Easy composting -- just invest $6 in a tub and make holesin the lid and bottom and you're good to go. Use food scraps (not rotting meat ;0) eggshells, fruits, veggies, etc.. and use a shovel to turn it over every week or two. For the first deposit remember to soak it in water.- We should do this for our school garden areas!
