Team Builds Pedal-Driven Compost Turner


Bike-Powered Compost Tumbler
Ahh, the things you find on YouTube. I'm clearly not the only compost-geek out there — my recent post on how to build a DIY compost tumbler generated some lively comments. However, I'm sure there are folks who consider even turning a compost tumbler a little too much like hard work. And that's where the intriguingly named "Team Broken Spokes" come in (aka Tonyinmontreal, we think), with their remarkably easy-to-use pedal powered compost turner. As the comments on their YouTube page suggest, for many applications a simple handle would do — but adding the bike powered option not only provides for more turning capacity (and hence more compost!), it also looks like it's kinda fun.
