Hey John Henry, welcome to the Cartel! Getting started worm composting is easy. I'll be handing out plans for a bin you can make for $10 at the next meeting. The plans are free, the materials will cost $10 or less.
If you support more freedom and less government on every issue, then you're definitely in the right place. The Austin Libertarian Meetup Group works to organize liberty-minded people separate from and outside of the bureaucracy of any official campaigns or political parties. Ron Paul supporters, liberty-minded D's and R's, and independents, are welcome.
