Essential Composting Toilets is a practical exploration of compost toilet systems for home-owners and building professionals covering selection criteria, design, installation, and operational processes

Drawing from existing regulations and research, this book will dispel myths, satisfy regulators, and provide tools to assess various systems in terms of meeting the health and safety objectives driving regulations

The Eco-Sense permaculture homestead has become a well-known local site for tours and workshops, and has been the center of international media coverage including documentaries, TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, and blogs

Gord participated as a technical editor for the BC Ministry of Health's Manual of Composting Toilets and Greywater Standard Practices
