Compost Riddle

Permaculture Crew

 Thank you for the good replies and ideas. Trust a riddle on humanure
and nutrient recycling to raise some permaculture irie. I'm down with
 the bucket system, especially for the chilly climes, but it remains a
 'movement' too close to home for many. Poco a Poco.

 

The chambered systems is what we've worked with on la finca with fine results
amongst those privy to keeping the balance and willing to lug reeking
 urine about but the same design we built at local schools went quickly anaerobic.

 

Your replies have reminded me of our gray water design which flows into a banana circle, which is basically a dug out fish scale with high mass producers planted around for cut and drop. I reckon running the urine tube into the same design will work just fine, probably better with all the urea. Just need to keep our machetes sharp!

 

Gracias a Todos.

 

Hope to see you down south..
