Last weekend mark and I constructed a tree bog variant of the traditional composting loo on site. This has the added advantage of strategically planted voracious willow that is hungry enough to eat anything. Hence in theory it does not need emptying. Which I personally find very exciting!
Hat tip to Jay at www.biologicdesigns.co.uk for explaining the idea to us, and and I am honoured to add our little project to the growing list of similar structures.
The hole was dug by me last year when I was inspecting soil composition - it's very flinty with lots of clay.
We made a framework from 4 uprights rammed into the ground (breaking 2 in the process. This was sized to fit a pallet between the stakes as a floor
and 3 more for the walls
and finally a roof
the day before everyone turned up for the hex build i added the loo seat, such luxury !
i am encouraging the use of leaves rather than bog roll & have discovered that doc leaves are fantastic, tho long term I would like to look at a large leafed tree .. perhaps a maple
