For my community, we'd like something transitional, cheaper and better than porta-potties, but it doesn't have to be perfect in terms of mummifying the poop and keeping the most carbon and nitrogen possible. We could get to that later, but for now just really need to reduce our money expenses and feeling of being tied to the unsustainable systems.
A more-sawdust-added practice with the same willow feeder design would work for us for now, yes? and the air pipe as in Geoff Lawton's design? and be pretty much human-error-proof?
The other problem in my view to handle is distance from the bedroom--I would have used the composting pooper if it had been anywhere near where I was in the morning at Twin Oaks, but I had to take a 3-minute bike ride, the bike might be gone, so maybe a 10-minute walk, then maybe someone would be in there...by that time I might not still be able to hold it or have the time to make my investment without being late to another commitment...I like the idea of some more versatile supplemental system, but that would be a setup for human error maybe.
It requires group awareness and commitment to practices as well as physical facilities.
Again, would this same system work fine for transitional use if we just added larger quantities of sawdust, air pipes? is that mostly human-error-proof? Thanks!
