About This Class

167561c7

Any gardener will tell you a garden is only as good as the soil it is grown in and the best to improve your soil is with rich organic compost. The other thing any gardener will tell you is you can never have too much compost! That lack of enough compost was our problem when the growing season began this year. We already had two tumblers but we realized it was time to add a third tumbler to our set up. We switched from a three bin wired frame about two years ago and our compost has never been richer or decomposed as fast! No more shoveling or turning with a pitchfork. 

The project for this workshop is to build a compost tumbler. If you already have a way to make compost I'd love to see a picture and hear all about it in the discussion and project section!

Simple and effective. These sorts of things cost a lot when purchased from retailers. Thanks!
Thank you for putting this together. I want to build one before it gets cold.

Margaret Smith

Bringing old fashion traditions to modern living

Hi! My name is Margaret and I have a passion for many of the "lost arts" but use modern tools when the finished product won't be compromised.  At Days Well Spent we know Time is a luxury these days. We can provide you with the things you need to reclaim a little bit of that elusive luxury while still treating yourself and your family to well-deserved comforts and convenience.

We envision the world in simpler times when happy homes were a humble paradise and everything you needed was within the comfort of your own four walls; food, shelter, warm clothing, and the company of family. We try to focus on the true necessities of life while trimming down extraneous noise and the hectic, fast-paced chaos of modern life. Everything we do is about getting to the heart of home.

At Days Well Spent, we know Time is a luxury these days. We can provide you with the things you need to reclaim a little bit of that elusive luxury while still treating yourself and your family to well-deserved comforts and convenience.

I look forward to meeting you!
