Urgent Matters II: Answering the call of nature

2 August 2018

​Organisesd by Compost Mentis & Bethnal Green Nature Reserve Trust

This is the second in a series of talks and workshops addressing urgent material, social and environmental concerns through conversation, making, and thinking together.

In this two part workshop you will have the chance to learn some practical plumbing skills - whilst helping to install the soakaway for our new compost toilet. This practical workshop will run from 1:00 -5:30pm, all welcome to drop in and get involved.

From 6:00 – 8:00pm, we will be joined by Dr Tse-Hui Teh and Dr Lena Ciric from UCL’s Pee and Poo for Food research project, which explores the use of composting toilets in cities through the lens of urban design and microbiology.
