Composting Toilet Questions

Today we’re out in Kingman, Az hoping to look at some land outside of the city to build an off-grid home on. Land is about $1,000 per acre and of course the more land you buy at one time, the cheaper those acres become. We’d like something between two and five acres.  I don’t want…
