How to compost (humanure)

Joseph Jenkins is a generous teacher who has provided a staggering amount of practical information on how to build and maintain a safe and sustainable humanure composting system.

We recommend watching the two videos embedded below on this page to get started, and then reading through the "Humanure Compost Toilet System Condensed Instruction Manual (PDF)".

If you're feeling inspired to build your own extra fancy compost bin, check out the  "Humanure Hacienda (PDF)"

If you haven't read it yet, we highly recommend that you pick up a copy of the "Humanure Handbook"—you can get it from Joseph Jenkin's website, or you can order a Loveable Loo from us, and we'll include a print copy of the "Humanure Handbook" with your order.
