The Rich Earth Institute reclaims our bodily nutrients in a life sustaining cycle. Using urine as a fertilizer reduces downstream nutrient pollution and harmful algal blooms, conserves water, and provides a sustainable fertilizer source to local farms.
In this project, Rich Earth teaches participants how to safely collect, store, and apply the urine in their home gardens. By documenting and sharing their experiences with us through our online survey, they will help us better understand how urine fertilization works for different plants, with different people, and in different places.
