Humanure: Composting, Toilets and Sustainability

It is a fundamental problem, Richard Manning writes, that Americans grow their food in Iowa, but poop in New York City (think about it). There’s an alternative to flushing zillions of gallons of purified water down the drain and spreading chemical-laden sewage sludge on farm fields. But are we civilized enough to pull it off? Join Max Rice for an enlightening slide show and discussion on “Humanure.” Suggested donation $5-8 (no one turned away) RSVP: [masked].

    I've been using two composting toilets since 1993. One is a micro flushing toilet on a second floor that has a very large container on the first floor and not even directly under it. That is a no hassle bad boy. Lots of worms and great soil in there. Fruit trees love it. The other is a little self container piece of crap, literally, with a little turning drum handle. That is the bane of my existence. Guests don't like it either. In my opinion, if you're going for it, go for something with enough mass to hold the worms and all for a year or two or even three.
