When Nature Calls ... at Duke Campus Farm
Duke Campus Farm recently unveiled a brand new outhouse as the latest addition to Duke's agricultural space. The outhouse was necessary as the Duke Campus Farm meets standards for farm land set by Orange County and the state.
The 4-by-5-feet outhouse -- painted red with cream-colored trim -- features a Dutch door that splits in two halves (top and bottom). There's ventilation on the bottom of the structure as well as two sliding windows to allow for a breeze to flow through the inside. A medicine cabinet holds extra toilet paper, bug spray and a first aid kit. The materials to build the outhouse cost a total of about $1,000 and were paid for through Duke's Green Grant Fund.
