RE: choosing a community toilet for compost gardens

i've always wanted to be a disseminator of unbiased expertise on composting
toilets, but now that the chance arises i find myself lacking the necessary
breadth of toilet worldliness.

i can tell you that last winter we purchased an Envirolet non-electric
system from Sancor Industries in Canada and found it most satisfactory.  if
you're doing any food-handling (you probably already know this) you need to
provide hot water for hand-washing, which isn't part of the set-up.

Subject: [cg] choosing a composting toilet for community gardens

Hello, gardeners!

The City of San Josť is interested in installing composting toilets at
several of our 16 community gardens.  Does anyone have experience choosing
an appropriate model?  The sites we are considering have some very different
factors to take into account, including different sizes, handicap
accessibility, etc.  I have been researching this topic for awhile and am
having difficulty finding un-biased information (i.e. industry overview
opposed to manufacturer information).  Any leads or expertise would be
greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Happy gardening,
