Watershed Management Group (a USA based non-profit organization) is offering a virtual field study class on composting toilet systems. The class is scheduled for Thursday, July 9th, 5pm-7pm (MST).

Learn all about the humanure composting process, associated benefits and use, toilet design options, maintenance, and permitting (in Arizona, USA) for planning your own composting toilet. A variety of composting toilet systems will be explored including two site-built design options in use at our Living Lab and Learning Center (Tucson, Arizona) - a 55-gallon barrel option and a masonry dual-chamber option.

The instructor will be Catlow Shipek, WMG's Policy and Technical Director & Co-Founder who led a 2-year pilot funded by the US EPA focused on eco-sanitation which led to the state of Arizona approving the two pilot reference designs for both residential and non-residential use.

Hey Catlow,
So glad ya'll are offering this. Whilst living in Phoenix, I had the pleasure of attending WMG Water Harvesting course and many workshops/events. The Phoenix Zoo has rain barrels because of a partnership with WMG! Very joyous to work with Ryan and to be a part.

Hope ya'll are well,
