Don’t Laugh: Compost Sifter Version 2

A few months before I made this version, my first compost sifter was way too laborious to manually shake back and forth. It resembled an like an old gold miners, sifting pan. This version 2 model, while it doesn’t look like much, sifts dirt and compost down to a nice fine aggregate, which is great for growing plants and holding lots of oxygen. So far, this sifter has sifted it’s way through 25 -30 wheel-barrow loads of dirt. I am currently designing a sturdier version for next spring.
