In our opinion, a compost sifter is an absolute must if you’re an avid gardener or generate a lot of compost. A simple backyard sifter will allow you to remove debris, rocks and unfinished compost prior to using it in your yard.
Last Saturday, Ijams green thumb Peg Beute held a compost sifter workshop, part of the Living Clean & Green! series.
Each participant built their own sifter, and today, are probably at home doing the compost sift in their backyards, sung to the tune of Chubby Checkers' The Twist, "Come on baby, let's do the sift!"
Good luck to them! - Story and photo by Stephen Lyn Bales
