Build a composter for less than $30

I've been composting for a while now and my composters fill up quicker than the breakdown so I decided it was time to build a few more compost heaps to aid in the rotation.

Competent Communication manual - Project 7 - Research Your Topic: Composting, time to step it up again...

I’ve been composting for a little over a year now which has given me plenty of time to step up my game. I started with a single compost tumbler and quickly realized that I needed at least two more in order to keep a steady cycle going. Lucky for me Rick Sebree had two that he gave to me. This spring all three of them were full cooking, and I decided that it was time to build a compost heap to handle my yard waste. Now I’m to the point that I’ve decided that I must do something more in order to reduce my impact on the earth. What impact, you say? The impact of fuel being consumed to take my waste to the landfill. The impact of that fuel burning and adding to the greenhouse gasses that are affecting our ecosystem and the impact of the materials decomposing underground without air, thus producing methane gas which add to the greenhouse gasses.

How to build a solar panel. DIY Solar cell tabbing & solar panel testing I bought 60+ solar cells that I tab and solder. This is a great DIY project. Its not as hard as I thought to build a solar panel from single solar cells. This is a great way to save money and do your part to save energy. I hope you enjoy it.
