These beautiful terracotta planters are…. you guessed it! Composters! I came across an article in City Farmer News this week about an inspiring kitchen waste management project in Bangalore, India, called The Daily Dump. The project was started in 2006 by Poonam Bir Kasturi, an industrial designer who teaches at the Srishti School of Design in Bangalore. The company offers a number of composting options for single families through communal set-ups. Check out this totally charming video they produced – it makes me realize what our compost bin is lacking…. a garland of marigolds! I totally want one of these and wonder if they are available in the U.S.?
