Liquid Gold

The Lore and Logic of Using Urine to Grow Plants

by Carol Steinfeld



Nitrogen pollution of lakes, rivers and oceans by human urine is a growing problem. Liquid Gold shows how urine can safely be used to grow food, fuel, fiber and beautiful landscapes while protecting the environment and providing free and safe fertilizer. Featuring a short history of urine use -- from ritual to medicinal and even culinary -- and many whimsical illustrations, this great bathroom reader is an ideal gift for irreverent gardeners, homeowners, campers, environmentalists and anyone who urinates.
