We just uploaded our weekly podcast at http://www.green-trust.org/podcasts/, and I wanted to go into some details on it. Our hosts this weekend at the Florence SC Renewable Energy & Self Sufficiency workshop, Rick & Eboni, had Hard Red Winter Wheat from the LDS cannery, so we brought our Lehman’s Best Grain Mill. We were grinding flour and baking bread together (along with their friend Rusty, a NRA Pistol instructor, and his girlfriend Jill) late Saturday night, and finally were able to taste the fruits of our labors around midnight. It was worth staying up for, even though we lost an hour on the clock.
We are uploading two video’s today that have to do with composting toilets. The first is a Joe Jenkins style collection bucket toilet. We took a five gallon pail, a snap on lid and seat from Reliance Products, and a bag of peat moss from Walmart ($9). We put 3″ of peat moss in the bottom of the bucket, and add enough to cover each deposit as you use it. When the bucket is full, empty it into a compost bin (or a stack of tires) to fully compost.
The second is a commercial composting toilet from Nature’s Head. This unit does the composting inside the toilet.
