I was sitting out on the deck one day and noticed my neighbor, Erin, bringing food scraps to a long pipe in her backyard. I knew it had to be composting, but I hadn't seen it done in a tube before. Erin is a college student majoring in Environmental Studies so I knew she'd have awesome insight into composting, so I picked her brain for the infos.
