A pedagogical composter

At La Traversine, a demonstration compost bin was designed to show children the evolution of the decomposition process.
We fill the tank by the left, mixing leftovers, peelings (nitrogenous matter) with the dead leaves recovered from the courtyard.
Then, when it is full, we start filling the second part and so on. When the 4th is full, we can empty the first tank, which is ready to be used for the garden (after having waited the necessary time for a good decomposition which varies according to the temperature and the season). We then start a cycle again.
