A poll:

How many on these lists still piss in drinking water? (You know that's 
contributing to vast dead zones in the oceans don't you?)

How many have collected urine for use as fertilizer for the garden? (One 
person's annual urine output is enough to provide all the N needed for 
an Acre of garden.)

How many save all (or most) of their urine for the garden? What are your 

How many compost their feces? How do you do it? What do you do with it?

I want details.

The data gathered in this poll may be used in the Spring Permaculture 
Activist themed /Waste = Food/.
Deadline for submissions for this issue is March 1, 2007 (send a 
proposal first)

Send submissions (no emissions please) to Scott Horton 
<editor at permacultureactivist.net>
