So here is you space to share your research on our very own compost toilet (shall we give it a name, is it a boy or girl?!)
Thank you Sam for sharing your research that the urine (another word for wee!) is good for plants due to a chemical it contains so it's separated out. Anyone know what that chemical might be?
Some more things to ask:
Why is there willow around the pit?
Where does the wee go?
Why doesn't it smell?
Why do we use sawdust in the poo pit?
Why doesn't everyone have a compost loo?
How do most of the loos in this country work?
Answers below please and any diagrams welcome too! Oh and if you want to make up a song about it with the above info in that could be added to our Greenhouse song repertoire go ahead, get started :-)
Here is Curtis' diagram he did today
