Humanure 2016

Joe Byrne helped the tree planting effort by harvesting some humanure. If you’ve never seen that term before, it refers to human manure, usually from a composting toilet.

This is humanure that sat untouched for a year.

The humanure was shoveled into the holes where the trees were being planted. Regular compost was also added.


Here’s the humanure before it was harvested.


Here Joe is scooping out the humanure and putting it in bags. In case you’re wondering: the humanure was dry as dust and gave off a woody (not a poopy) smell.


Here are a couple of the bags of humanure ready to be transported to the tree planting site.
