Gold: The Lore and Logic of Using Urine to Grow Plants
Every day, we
urinate nutrients that can fertilize plants that could be used for
beautiful landscapes, food, fuel, and fiber. Instead, these nutrients
are flushed away, either to be treated at high cost or discharged
to waters where they overfertilize and choke off aquatic life.
The Lore and Logic of Using Urine to Grow Plants tells you how
urineÑwhich contains most of the nutrients in domestic wastewater
and usually carries no disease riskÑcan be utilized as a resource.
Starting with a short history of urine useÑfrom ritual to medicinal
to even culinaryÑand a look at some unexpected urinals, Liquid
Gold shows how urine is used worldwide to grow food and landscapes,
while protecting the environment, saving its users the cost of fertilizer,
and reconnecting people to the land and the nutrient cycles that
sustain them. That's real flower power!
