Building a Compost Screener

Here is the latest project that my sweet hubby and I built for our eco-friendly, “green” garden. It is a compost sifter and we got the idea from plans that we found in Organic Gardening Magazine.

It’s very easy to make. The only materials required are a few pieces of 2 x 4 lumber, some hardware cloth with 1/2 inch square mesh, a staple gun and some galvanized deck screws.

Of course, we love compost because it provides eco-friendly, chemical free nutrients for our garden.

I hope you enjoy the video! The link to the article is below.

  1. Wow, that's beautiful compost! Mine tends to be wet and clumpy and would never go through a screen this way. What am I doing wrong?

  2. Hi Sonia. We never water our compost, even though I think sources recommend that you do. We just throw our trash in a pile and wait for nature to do its thing! That's probably pretty old compost there since it is our older pile.
