My version of the milk crate composter. Bought two pop up hampers at dollar store. Cut them in half and cut out the bottom. Used wire cutters. Clipped them to the inside of the crates with big poster board clips. (Easier and cheaper than cutting mesh fabric and using glue gun) Found the plastic "lid" in the garage. Cool that it's see through! Read other posts for the composting how to's like I did! :)

How to Build a Nomadic Farming Container: The open source wisdom on the topic suggests that the ubiquitous milk crate is the best container to use. These crates are inexpensive, lightweight, easily moved (they have handles), stackable, and allow drainage/aeration. They are also easy to convert into a planter by simply lining them with landscape fabric (ten dollars of fabric + sewing can convert 24 crates into planters) or (in a pinch) a plastic bag with holes.
