Composting Toilet at Hollenback Garden

Received this info from Hollenback Community Garden on Washington:

Next Saturday, June 9th, we will be digging a
hole 10 feet by 6 feet, 4 feet deep to install our
new, and to my knowledge the neighborhood’s only,
composting toilet unit.

I thought it’d be nice to let you know, so if you
wanted to come by and see the incredible group effort
that makes Hollenback the beautiful place that it is,
you could. Maybe you could also put a post up on your
blog and see if anyone in the neighborhood would like
to stop by and help us dig. We should be starting at
around 11am, with a raindate on Sunday the 10th.

Even if you can’t make it, after the digging, the
installing, and building of a structure to house the
unit, we will have an unveiling ceremony, where
community members will be able to contribute in other

I’m not sure if that last part was meant to be tongue-in-cheek (ie, contributing to the toilet). Either way, if you go, send photos.

    Okay, I’m a geek. I would love to see this. But we have errands to run all day and I won’t be able to make it.

    Was this garden open to last Sunday’s Garden Walk? I wasn’t able to visit any of the community gardens, unfortunately. I barely made it through all the stops on the tour.

    This public composting toilet is a brilliant project and will be an appropriate demonstration of a practical solution to common natural resource problems everywhere! Thank you.
