Re: [permaculture] Grow with the flow! Urine charge. A golden opportunity. Liquid gold.

The best source for humanure composting information is from
a multi-talented (and humorous) man named Joe Jenkins.  His
humanure info site is:
He is the author of a very interesting and informative book,
The Humanure Handbook! 
Cheers,  JC
ps. the real bottom line (no pun intended) for closing the
circle on human generated "wastes" and true accountability
in caring for the earth and sustainable living lies in
septic system designs.  I appreciate you Keith for bringing
light onto this topic and for all you bring to the
permaculture table!
