    Does anyone use the rolling composter you can buy at Lee Valley in Vancouver?

    Any thoughts on how good/poor the product is? I'm intrigued by the idea of easily accessible compost tea via the spout at the bottom of the unit but am concerned that the high cost of the product ($175) won't deliver any appreciable benefit over ye olde pile/pitchfork method that I'm used to.

    Many Thx

    You can't improve on the "ye olde pile/pitchfork method". Most of the 'modern' methods of composting is more about selling useless containers than about realistic composting. Lee Valley sells a lot of hyped up stuff that doesn't stand up to practical use in the real world.

    Durgan is right, I have a two barrel one and haven't had a decent batch from it yet!
