NEW GUIDE: DIY Compost Tumbler @adafruit #SaveThePlanet
In a new tutorial in the Adafruit Learning System, we get down and dirty by chopping up some wood and installing some wheels to make a cheap, simple and efficient compost tumbler.
For those that compost “aerobically”, a tumbler is a great way to “aerate” your compost without having to physically turn the compost itself.
The tumbler works with most compost barrels or trash cans and can easily be integrated into your current compost set up. If you don’t have a can or barrel to compost in and are looking to find one inexpensively, check with a local car wash business to see if they have any extra empty soap barrels you could wash out and use. Old trash cans work great too.
Besides saving the planet, you also get rich, nutrient filled soil to grow things for your garden: win-win!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
