Composting Toilet Construction at the Free Farm.

The past few Wednesday workdays Steve and I have been building an outhouse for a composting toilet for the Free Farm.  It's been a crash course in simple construction that I've really enjoyed so far.  I'll make sure to put up some pictures soon showing our construction process, and the finished product in time for a free composting toilet workshop June 19th at the Free Farm.  Details below!

As many of you know, the Free Farm has no toilet or sewer connection. Laura Allen, of Greywater Action, will help us solve this problem by plumbing a composting toilet to be used by volunteers. Come help and learn about ecological toilets, that use no water and return nutrients to the earth. We'll finish construction on a urine-diverting composting toilet, discuss health and safety, codes and regulations, the benefits of composting toilets, and how to maintain a well-functioning toilet.

Date: June 19th
Time: 1pm - 4pm.
Cost: Free.

RSVP: Please send a brief email with the number of people coming to help Laura plan:
