Thanks, Joe. That's good news, because you didn't remove it because you decided it wasn't a good idea. I think it's a brilliant idea!

The camp composter is not in the third edition of the Humanure Handbook. I removed it due to a lack of an actual photograph (there was only a crude drawing).

I looked im my newer copy of Humanure Handbook, and I can't find a reference to a "camp composter" anywhere. It was in my old copy. I a m wondering why it is no longer in the book, or am I missing it?

Dear Friends,

I am the caretaker of some land which has just been purchased for a Buddhist retreat center. My family and I have been using what is probably the worlds largest camp composter for about 5 years now. The new owners are intereted in composting toilets. I believe that there's no need to buy them, when we can build outdoor camp composters ourselves. All we did was build a wooden bin with two sides,large enough to hold enough poop for at least a year. (Ours holds about 5 years worth! But that's another story.) Then we built a little room above the bins, with a seat over all.

Does anyone see anything wrong with this method? Does anyone have a similar set-up?

Thanks for your help!

Peace, Mary
