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].

Come early and get your holiday shopping underway at Recyclique,
upcycled goods, eclectic thrift, sustainability books,
painted rain barrels, vintage, fair trade, local crafts
0pen 12-6 pm Fridays / 10-5 pm Saturdays
Join us: Fri. Dec. 14th at 6 pm for “The Pursuit of Happiness” by Ruth Backstrom.

    Would love to make this event, but Fridays are hard for me. On a related note, did y'all know that Athens, GA has a city-wide composting program for their humanure? We need such a program in Durham! (I blogged about it at http://rethinkag.wordpress.com/composting-human-wastes/)
    Cheers!
