During our residency at Bethnal Green Nature Reserve from 2018 - 2019, we co-designed and built a new accessible all-gender compost toilet, creating humanure and liquid fertilisers to support soil care on the site and in the local area.
Alongside this we built four different connected composting systems including a wormery, leaf mould pile, and three-bay system. To help build interest, conversation and connection to these living systems (which need humans as well as a myriad of other creatures to make them work!), we ran a programme of talks, workshops, and making sessions for the public; learning together about plumbing, soil science, fermentation, irrigation, accessibility and the art and science of composting!
