Interested in Compost Toilet Building Training?
- Thursday, 17 May 2012
Many projects have recently expressed an interest in increasing the accessibility of their sites by providing toilet facilities. Compost toilets are often the most affordable and sustainable solution. Federation of City Farms and Community Toilets (FCFCG) has worked in collaboration with Taff's Well and Nantgarw Community Garden and Sustainable Education to deliver a two-part course for either those ready to build their own compost toilet or those who are considering it as an option and would like to find out more.
Part One of the course is a practical hands-on construction project where participants will work with a tutor to build the Taff's Well and Nantgarw Community Garden’s Compost Toilet. This part of the course will be spread over six days starting on 21st May. You will gain the following skills by attending this part of the course:
- The principles of compost toilet design
- How to safely manage composting toilets
- How to design for the best compost and fertiliser production
- Basic carpentry skills
- A variety of construction techniques
Part One training will run between 21st - 30th May 2012. You do not need to attend every day of this course but preference will be given to those that can. Please see website (below) for more details.
Part Two of the course will be a comprehensive explanation of the entire process of building a compost toilet on your site, which will cover:
- What options are available
- Consultation with your Landowner and Community
- Planning permission
- Guide to construction
Part Two training day will take place on Friday 15th June 2012.
You are welcome to book on to one or both parts of the course. This training is free to volunteers from community growing projects or £50 for each part of the course for paid workers.
