Human Shit is good Fertiliser

Righto you Purists. Here we go. Heads out of the clouds now ...

I began a thread asking about number of compost worms per pot. There wasn't much response so I bought a kilo of worms for each pot and put a few kilos of partly composted human shit on top of the new worms. I know they love this stuff from another garden and sure enough when I looked last evening the new worms are moving into the shit (which smelled great, by the way!).

Now when I posted this news there appeared cautionary advice and expressions of disgust ... except from my new friend St Phatty!

Of course I had interfaced with my own shit during the Oral stage of childhood development but I can't remember that ... so I want to tell all you squeaky-clean-Dettol-hand-wash-users about my later experiences with Human Shit.

It began when I was five. Mother had gone to hospital to have a breakdown and so we kids went to her Brother's place somewhere in the Scots wilds.
Our Uncle and his Wife were older and there was not much for us to do. Me, I explored the farm and countryside around. My biggest surprise was finding the Midden. The Midden was a walled area. The wall was just high enough for a five year old on tiptoe to look over. And the sight was amazing indeed!

The shit behind the wall was all sorts. Cattle, pig, and human. It was spring so the Byre had been mucked out and the Midden was full. There was a heavy buzzing in the air.

There was brown shit, yellow shit, green shit and there ... peeking out from clumps of hay off the floor of the Byre ... someone had tipped the shit can, and the one before it and the one before that. It was mostly yellowish so stood out from the animal crap. It's shape was different too. Due to human anus shape I guess. And bowel ...

I was very familiar with the shit can because I visited it at least once a day, sometimes more. We had a flush toilet where I usually lived but I rather liked its smell. Rich. Almost like horse shit, but not so. (I guess smell depends on diet.)

Think of that: a daily experience of other peoples' shit inches below one's backside. I squatted of course.

Once in the Midden, altogether with the animal shit, the smell was fantastic. HMMM! I am recalling it right now!
(Odours go straight to the brain without being categorised by reason ... so my recall is perfect! YUM!)

But now I 'm getting off -course.

What St Phatty said in my worm post mirrors my ancestors experience. I would not be here without their shit and their animals shit on the ground they tilled and reaped.

Human shit is very good fertiliser. The shit I use is as pure as organic eaters can get their shit. We understand about health issues so one else shits in our toilet.

PS: you Aztec charcoal soil guys avoid the actuality that Aztec soils blackness was caused equally by human shit!

Night soil as the Koreans refer to it. Might also be why they are full of parasites, worms, and diseases. Rule of thumb, don't use the excrement from anything that eats meat.

If Matt Daemon can do it on Mars then..............

....and if you think shit is so bad, then show your dog a freshly 'laid' diaper/nappy - and see how that goes.

Seriously - much of the world still uses human excrement as a fertilizer, and it works for them.

I am a big fan of human urine as a fertilizer, but I must say that I draw a line with human feces other than for use with ornamentals. If you want to check out one large-scale use of human feces(and other stuff) for fertilizer, check out Milorganite. I really don't see a point of using human feces on consumable plants when you can get feces from so many other sources so easily.

Shit of dog,cats and humans are not quality manure for fertilizing plants...

thats utter stupidity and dont knowing a substance on manures..


Shit of cows are best,then goes horse and sheep manure.. this ones are most quality
and they come from animals that eat grass mostly.. Lester is right when he says dont
use manure from carnivores..


Cow shit is actually art of manure and gives best smelly veggies and weed with
incredible bacteria content that transforms Earth soil in best medium that will
feed plants.. it even have bacteria that will enlarge your serotonine levels so
you will feel better while gardening,its a Mycobacterium vaccae..
beneficial bactery for happiness and feeling good..


Human shit is a manure to avoid.. just mine 5 cents..

There's a reason that human excrement smells bad to humans,
and good to flies.

Considering the logistics of dealing with 50# of human excrement
vs. 50# of steer manure ...

If one wants to use human excretions as a fertilizer, I suggest #1.

I might have to repeat the test, but ... I planted about 20 bare root roses, one next to the back door.

When I was working out doors, I would go #1 on the rose plant next to the back door.

Which is now HUUUGE, 7 feet tall, multiple main stems, etc.

City of SF applies economies of scale to the matter & the sewage department donated a bunch of 'treated bio-solids' to Parks & Recreation.

Not sure how many takers there were.
