Watch this short video tutorial to learn how to build a compost bin for your own backyard, quickly and easily and for around $15.  This project should take you about 15 minutes to complete.

This is an “open” type of compost bin, made out of one piece of pressure-treated wood and a length of flexible metal fencing material.  You can customize the size of the bin to suit your needs and the size of your back or front yard.  You can make the bin short or tall, wide or narrow, as you wish.  It can also be handy to make several small bins and place them strategically throughout your yard, so that you can easily compost yard waste when you are raking leaves, pruning plants or weeding the beds.  Organic gardening has never been easier!  In this video, we show you:

  • The tools and materials you will need to build a compost bin (or several!)
  • Step-by-step directions on how to put the compost bin together
  • How to install the bin in the yard (by simply driving the wood/stake into the ground)
  • Where to best locate the compost bin in your yard (a sunny spot is preferable)
