Yes, You Can Compost in City Apartments
My husband once bought me a compost tumbler for Christmas, and my appalled sisters asked, “Is this marriage on the rocks?” But my Ohio neighbors were envious, knowing I’d no longer have to trudge out to the old compost pile in the woods but could toss kitchen scraps into the tumbler beside the back door. It never occurred to me I could compost indoors.
“Our compost box sits in the corner of our living room,” explains New Yorker Hiroko Tabuchi. “We do keep a cover on it to prevent flies, and, in seven years, we’ve never had a problem with insects.” All it takes is a cardboard box, coco peat (available online) and wood ash.
PS. Don’t tell my husband; he has a birthday coming up.
