Humanure Compost: Using recycled or scavenged materials for our project, humanure compost is a way of closing the nutrient cycle rather than wasting valuable resources. Water use and soil fertility / structure are areas of concern and this approach gives a practical and safe method of dealing with both areas by letting nature's critters and biological processes turn what many consider waste into a valuable soil conditioner that reduces the need for reliance on oil based fertilisers.
