New Compost Toilet!
The compost toilet is up and running! 5 dedicated folk signed up for the course and made a fantastic job of it. It has already been used by over 100 people during the summer events, and saved hundreds of litres of water. Thanks to North Pennines AONB for funding it! The project was documented on video, and the final edit will be up soon.
The busy bees at this year’s Earthing the Spirit ran a great afternoon workshop in cleft wood railings to take the treehouse on another step. Check the treehouse blog here for more info
