Humanure Compost: Using mainly 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. As well as using straw for thatching, straw bales work well at the front of the compost bays.
