How to Go Green in The City with DIY Urban Composting

Let the Veggies Lead You

Perhaps the easiest option is to go to the local farmers market, and start talking to the farmers. I will guarantee you that they compost.

Ask around, and you are sure to find someone to take your weekly scraps, and you may even score some veggies in trade.

Ask for the ugly ones if they give you the choice, ugly veggies taste better. It’s a fact.

Think About Growing

If you have a little bit more space to play with in your urban dwelling, then you have some great options. Also you won’t have to haul rotting kitchen waste to a farmers market once or twice a week.

If you are blessed with a small outdoor area, you have it made!

Get some window boxes, and put your compost outside on the ground. You can start your own little farm, right there on your balcony!

Options You May Not Have Known Existed

Another great option is a worm farm. You can keep it inside or outside, and as long as you can sell the people you live with on having hundreds of worms in the apartment, you are good to go.

For those of you that have more money to play with, check this thing out:

They call it a Nature Mill and it is an amazing machine that you plug in…and it makes compost. I suspect that there are Elves involved, and that is why it costs 400 dollars.

Whether the Elves make the machine, or live in it I don’t know, but it only uses fifty cents worth of power a month, and it makes compost.
