Urine as compost agitator

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Yes, it works, and it works extremely well. OK, it all sounds rather strange, and maybe even icky, collecting urine in a container and then putting it onto the compost heap or into the compost bin but that is what was done not so long ago in rural households anyway.

Around here, the small changes tend to be amplified by differences in elevation, microhabitats, and urbanization.
