A Vermont moment: People donate 600 gallons of their urine for "green" research
Posted by David Brooks | Tuesday, August 14, 2012
Once of those Vermont research/lifestyle organizations, the Rich Earth Institute, is studying ways to use human urine as a fertilizer.
More than 60 volunteers have been collecting urine for this experiment since April. The institute will use 600 gallons to compare the fertilizing power of urine to that of conventional chemical fertilizer. Hayfield said soil with no fertilizer at all will also be tested. All samples will be sent to EPA labs.
