Parasite Farm – modern day urban composting
Modern day composting – small scale
This article came out today on Inhabitat – very cool concept. Click the link above to see their write up.
The Parasite Farm is a new indoor gardening system that encourages small space urban gardening while composting waste into fresh, fertile soil. Designed by Charlotte Dieckmann and Nils Ferber, the system consists of several planter beds and a compost bin with a chopping board lid that can be mounted on any kitchen table.
This could be for small urban living or just people that don’t need the traditional larger outside bins – we want one for the Airstream. Don’t think they are in production yet. The pair live in Germany so we will have to see what the future holds. Check out some more pics from Charlotte and Nils website:

Slide the board to dump the food scraps – love it!
