Mel's oil drum rolling composter

Post  richardbronosky on Fri Jun 25, 2010 9:24 am

On page 95 Mel says, "On my PBS TV program, I showed how to make a rolling composter out of an old, cleaned out oil drum". I'd love to see it. Anyone know where to find more info?

The closest I can find is this instructable.

I found one very similar on the same site, it was cheaper and much easier... http://www.instructables.com/id/Compost-Tumbler/

That's great! I followed a link from there to a dog poop composter and will be doing that at my next house!
