It's a great little book. In fact, I just finished reading and reviewing it for the upcoming issue of Pip Magazine. Great for urban permies - of course - but also to bring those that dream of going bush back to reality.

If this post encourages blatant advertising I am sure it will be ok if I blatantly bump this post. I hope.

The cheapest, simplest system available to the DIYer, not for everyone and not for every situation but still always worth considering.



It does, somewhat, under DIY. However, the tilt of the article was government compliant systems. Our readership largely comprises people in urban contexts that probably wouldn't go as far as a bucket and sawdust in their bathroom.

That said, we did publish a follow up blog post with a DIY el basico design: https://www.pipmagazine.com.au/bucket-loo-cheap-simple/

Hope ya'll don't mind me sharing this. Kym Mogridge of Adobe Loos and Worms in Bega, New South Wales, Australia, wrote this superbly informative article about composting toilets in Pip Mag #2. The link to the entire article [PDF] is in the blog post:

I wrote an ultra-brief review of The Vegan Book of Permaculture in the latest issue of Pip Magazine. As a former vegan, I rate it. There is an important focus on the self (Zone 00) in the book - for by ignoring one's own physical and mental wellbeing, what good are you to anyone else? I reckon it will be a useful book for urban permies - folk that haven't the space, time, landlord approval, or inclination to keep animals. As well as vegans, of course.

Not a book as such but a magazine - Australia has its own permaculture journal again since Permaculture International Journal ceased back in 2000. Pip Magazine its name. It comes in a physical and digital format and aims to help connect the Australian permaculture community once more. It's up to its 3rd issue. Check it it out:
