Composting 101 this is a great chart for people thinking of composting - we compost, i swear by it, do it!! we have TONS less trash then we used to!! and healthy, healthy, organic garden - we use no treatments in our garden at all, not pesticides, or any chemicals at all - just natural.
A DIY composter - brilliant! A tight-fitting lid keeps away unwanted critters like raccoons. Holes drilled in the bottom and side walls of this trash can, then sunk into the dirt allow worms and bugs to do what they're good at. Protected from high winds and execcisve rains, this compster will get the job done! (To all you savvy gardeners out there!)

But what about some of the more unusual things? Things that may not come out of your garden or your kitchen? Things like sawdust.
