As many of you know I was born in raised in Sweden and came to this country only after I graduated from the University of Uppsala with a Masters Degree in Molecular Biology. But that was a lifetime ago so we’ll just fast forward till today and deal with what I’m really writing about, which is the Jora Composter.
What’s a garden without compost, right? I understand from the review I’ve just read that this Swedish drum composter, Jora Composter is the best on the market. It’s extremely sturdy and does exactly what it’s designed to do, turn kitchen waste into nutritious compost that’s ready for use on the garden in just a few weeks.
The Jora Composter was designed in response to tough Swedish recycling regulations and has been used successfully by households throughout Scandinavia for many years to compost all kitchen waste, including cooked food and meat products. Many are also in use in schools and kindergartens, where they make a good educational tool for younger pupils.
There are two models available in the U.S., the JK 125 and JK 270. The 270 is the one in the picture, the 125 is smaller and can be hung on the wall.
If you want to check them out, their available from a number of sources on Google, but the one linked to the Swedish home page is the Composting Warehouse. There’s also an excellent video on You Tube that demonstrates how it works.
Leave it to the Swedes to create something that is well built, works like it’s supposed to and saves money. In fact, it reminds me of a certain Swedish landscape designer I happen to know.
