Humanure at the UBC Farm

Now this is cool: The UBC Farm has developed an innovative outhouse that really creates a sustainable fertilizer by deviating urine from fecal matter. Or at least, that's what they're studying with a pilot outhouse at the Farm, build as part of a SEEDS (Social Ecological Economic Development Studies) project with Geoff Hill, Chemical & Biological Engineering, the UBC Farm and Campus Sustainability.

Try it out next time you're at the Farm!
