Project: Freezer Burn Compost toilet project

Posted by Kevin Longeway over 11 years ago

All is close to ready, just thinking up some structures now.

I have found a very eco friendly carpentry company in Crossfield that has offered me all the saw dust I can cart away. I have a friend building the toilet boxes. I am going tomorrow to get as many of the pails as I can. All that is left is to build the structure to house the two toilets. I am thinking to make the experience better for people, a more sturdy and artistic structure is better than stringing up tarps. So I will work on that this weekend coming up. Once we have things built I will post pictures here.

Barbara Worth : What is the event the composting toilets are for and when is it? I think they are a great idea. I may actually be in Calgary in about a week. In the past I have worked with the Permaculture crew (Kerrmaculture Krew) at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas. But, the last time I did so was in 2007 and at that time we had no composting toilets. We used outhouse-type restrooms and had a local service come from the nearby town and suck it all away. I have been extremely pleased to find them at state offices in the outback of Western Australia, specifically the Conservation Dept. They changed its name and I can't remember what they call it now. These were nicely designed and were open at the top to the clear Aussie sky.

Kevin Longeway : Hello Barbara, I am so sorry I missed this post, I had a very busy couple of weeks at work. I would have loved to have met you and showed you what we had planned. The event was regional Burning man event which is about music, art and community.... so a lot of hippie type people in costumes building and painting stuff lol.

I am going to ask people I know for feedback on their thoughts on using the compost toilets this past weekend and then post it on here. I will also be composting the materials gathered on my parents farm tonight and will keep updated on here of how that goes.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
