FarmBot to take care of composting bin


I am an enthusiast of urban gardening proposal, and FarmBot project is amazing! Congratulations for developing it!!

I live in São Paulo, Brazil, and I am interested in building one FarmBot to take care of seedling nursery.

But I am writing here to ask if there are some efforts to make the gantry also to take care of a composting bin, such as control its humidity, temperature and mainly to turn over the composting bin, so it can aerate the compost and elevate its temperature.

Thank you for your great project,
