When sitting on the toilet what do you want to read? Meaningless graffiti, Jack love Lucy 4ever??? No, no you are at Caretaker Farm to learn about permaculture not the love life of the neighbourhood dogs!
So then, ever wondered how your toilet works? How you should best use the toilet or maybe what the Japanese is for a No1 and a No2? Well this is your lucky day, all your questions are answered here!!!!
This toilet works on a composting system with everything that's put in eventually breaking down, or decomposing, and being returned to the land.
Underneath the toilet there is a large barrel that holds all the shit, with a few layers of mulch and of course some used toilet paper.
When you go to the toilet for a No 2 you only need to cover what you leave with the mulch provided, not too much, just enough to cover it.
The next person then does the same and it all builds up and in a compost system!
For the girls in the audience, who are wondering about No 1's - there is a small bucket under the main one that collects the piss. There are small holes in the main bucket and the piss filters through the compose of No 2's and mulch in the main bucket.
