How To Make A Compost Bin (DIY)

How To Make A Compost Bin out of Wood Pallets is great for gardeners. 

Composting is the gardener’s way of recycling old plant material into rich, soil-nourishing compost. Plants love it!

Wooden pallets are often free to source and are the perfect size for making a large compost bin.

I compost all the time my kitchen scraps, well some of them. I don’t have a compost bin, but I do have a compost pile.

I live in the country and have a big fenced field that our horse Billy roams around in.

I dump my kitchen scraps over the fence in the field and then when I need to put down new soil in the flower beds it is all ready for me to use.

Thing you will need:




Corner Brackets

Chicken Wire
