Getting Our Poop In a Group, Part Three: Finishing the Compost Bins

by Tara

With Spring officially here, we were able to spend a day finishing the compost bins we started last winter. We decided to put them against the east side of our clearing, next to where the gardens will be. This is the first real structure we've built on our land, and it feels so great to be nesting. I have been dreaming about making a home in the woods for my entire life!

As well, it's nice to see something we've started come to fruition. Between the foundation and site work for our cottage and workshop, getting my book published, preparing for our timber framing workshop this summer, and running Tyler's business, life feels a little overwhelming right now. Checking "build compost bins" from our to-do list is a huge relief.
