I live in a small apartment with limited space (there is a small outdoor patio).
I want to start using a compost bin, but all the models I've found are quite large and seem to include mechanisms for turning or agitating the compost.
I was wondering if this was absolutely necessary to do and, if possible, could I just use a normal container of some sort and 'turn' the compost every so often when I extract the degraded soil to use?
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
