Compost Toilet in the making

Who knew…

The Sofa Surfa

I recently spent a month in West Cork, a small town called Skibereen, in the Republic of Ireland. I stayed with a woman who advertised for some help with the garden on HelpX. As well as my gardening tasks I built her this composting toilet. Unfortunately I didn’t get to finish before I left but I managed to get this up in 2 days, all from recycled materials. There are some blocks I found laying around in the garden for a level foundation, then a pallet, and the structure was made from an old shed that blew down in a recent storm. Nestled behind her existing shed, just outside the back door, she will be able to start reducing her dependence on her septic tank and flushing toilets, saving precious water, while creating a mighty good compost for her fruit trees.
