    What are you doing for grid down sanitation? Poop Plan?

I have been using the Humanure Handbook method for about two years.  Hardwood sawdust is hard to come by so I’ve used softwood sawdust, shavings, peat moss, grasses/leaves and even wood ash.  The shavings are too large to contain the odors, the grass/leaves can be too, but everything else is easy.

I get about 2-3 weeks out of a 5 gallon bucket as a single person.  I’ll be using my first batch of 2 year compost this year.  I like how I keep fertility on my land and save on septic pumping and whatever disposal method is used.  Just keep all 5 exposed sides of your compost pile protected from animals and you’re good to go.
