WHAT TO BRING
ABOUT THE TUTOR
Lynden Miles works at Monkton Wyld Court in Dorset, where he has designed and constructed awarding winning compost toilets. His curiosity of 'how and why' matched with the strong desire to live a greener, more fulfilling lifestyle dominated his next 20 years. His travels all over the world found some very good and some very bad compost toilet experiences, so when life brought him to Monkton Wyld Court in 2010 and the opportunity was presented to him, he just could not resist the challenge to design and build what would turn out to be the first of many indoor and outdoor compost loos, which won him two awards in the process. He has a passion for teaching and he's run courses designing and building many timber framed structures from homes to outdoor showers, outdoor kitchens to the Monkton Wyld Court outdoor licenced pub!
