People who homestead will often think of something other than oil when someone mentions black gold. The black gold that is valuable to a homesteader is compost. An ingenious bucket system can be used if you want a great way to turn trash into black gold.
A regular 5-gallon bucket is all that you need to turn trash into black gold for your garden. You only need to rework the design of the bucket for drainage to make the best compost. The key to making compost in a bucket is providing ventilation as it will aid compost creation.
Red wiggler worms that you will place in your bucket will help turn trash into black gold. The worms need a suitable place to create an organic compost that is better than anything you can possibly buy. You should make a point to go slow at first so any food scraps do not start to rot.
