    Great article on humanure! It amazes me how “backwards” our so-called modern toilets are. By implementing the principles in “Humanure”, water bill goes down by over 30%, compost quality goes way up, and your garden explodes with healthy growth! I highly recommend the book!

    Interesting….I’d heard about this but never really knew how it worked. Thanks for sharing this with us at the HomeAcre Hop!

    Great topic, yes we do not want to talk about it. Our local sewer plant smells, it smells bad most of the not frozen stage time ;(. So I do not even want to imagine how harmful it is.

    Our local sewer plant adds yard waste and makes a wonderful mulch. People line up in the Spring to buy truck loads. They let it set for a long time so It really doesn’t smell. I have used it in my flower gardens, but haven’t put it in the vegetable garden. It really is wonderful! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    A timely post – this morning I was walking with my son (and dog!) at the dog park, which is next to our local wastewater treatment plant (or poo factory as I tell my kids), and I was describing how one day, when the world comes to its senses, worms and reed beds will do all the work of the big machines there. And best of all, it won’t stink out the dog park when the westerly wind blows!

    Hi Jennifer,
    Wow! What a thought-provoking look at the principles shared in The Humanure Handbook. This is a very interesting read. I remember going to visit my grandparents in North Carolina as a child when they still had an outhouse. I am certain that they would have benefited from reading this insightful guide.Thank you so much for sharing this valuable information at the “Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Party”! I appreciate it!

    What a great concept! I want a composting toilet but my husband is not on board with that one. However… I can usually change his mind. I’m interested in this book! More info=changed minds 🙂
