Urine for Garden, Composting Urine

Human urine is a great, natural, free source of Nitrogen for your soil or compost. Flushing your urine after each pee, would waste thousands of gallons of water per year at home. Then, your valuable urine is not only lost, but it goes to a chemical waste center where they must use chemicals on all that water you flushed, since within the sewage pipes it has all gotten mixed with stool. To minimize the water shortages seen in so many communities, an easy way to save water is by NOT flushing away your urine. Using for your compost or garden is an extra benefit. (If you just let it sit in the toilet bowel until you have a bowel movement, then the urine can start to smell up your bathroom, and your garden or compost would be missing out on a great source of liquid nitrogen.) Try it…. it is much easier, cleaner, and normal than you might think.

    im not really sure hmmmmmm?????

    @ed1642 In the winter I probably only take the jugs of urine out to the compost pile once a week, so by that time I may have 2 or even 3 gallons of urine to take to the heap of composting leaves. Winter is when this system is especially great, since I only need to trudge outside about once a week. Happy gardening.

    Wonder what he suggests doing with it in the winter. Probably drink it.

    Looks like sun tea.

    I think I will just stick too wizzing directly on the plant itself. No need to store human waste in the house. You bunch of nasties!

    What a bunch of fucked up assholes! You’ll turn your oh-so-“green” noses up at a hamburger or Twinkie or non-organic yogurt…but PISS on it, SHIT on it, stick it in your crotch or shoes and OH BOY! Time to chow down.

    Take a bath, stop drinking your own piss, use some deodorant and FUCK OFF!

    What a bunch of losers!

    Just piss on your garden, moonbat.

    I can’t help but laugh at how much you sound like Eric foreman from that 70’s show. 8D

    @ridemybikecooper Yes, diluting the urine with water makes sense if you are going to pour it directly onto the plant area (soil at the roots). But I don’t bother diluting the urine since I pour it straight into the compost. Undiluted urine would be too strong for most plants to withstand it being used directly on them, but in the compost is fine.

    Nice piss bottle. I use one much smaller. My girlfriend finds it grose. But the hardest thing is getting your knob into or against the hole. Powerade drink bottles have holes almost big enough to fit.
    Dont let the urine sit for longer than 8 – 10 hrs before emptying the 750ml bottle into a garden watering can and dilute 10 parts water to 1 part piss. We have 5 giant happy fruit trees. Don’t over do it though, they can get to much, although the smell would usually be a sign of to much

    @OrganicGarden123 was just an opinion. No judgement intended.

  12. LICKETYSPLITALNG says:

    As long as the individual is healthy, urine is very sterile as well. I would think straight urine would burn plants. Horse urine burns lawns straight. Have you tried diluting it to any particular concentration?

  13. OrganicGarden123 says:

    @Imyourcounciousness I understand your “ewwww”. But.. It’s not clear to me why normal, natural human body functions´╗┐ like peeing are considered “gross” by many in ‘civilized’ societies. It’s all part of the circle of life. Not that I would want a pet dog peeing on my bed or couch, but to urinate onto compost where it can be used again for growing is cool. Conversely, “gross” is using all the harsh chemicals needed to treat my toilet water if I urinated into the toilet/sewer system. Be well.

  14. Imyourcounciousness says:

    I totally believe that its useful, but its EWW!

  15. OrganicGarden123 says:

    @beetz15s Yes, but I would CHANGE the poem FROM “If its brown flush it down. If its´╗┐ yellow let it mellow.” TO: “”If its brown flush it down. But the urine you should keep, put it on your compost heap.” (my son helped create this one for us!)

  16. beetz15s says:

    If its brown flush it down.
    If its yellow let it mellow.

    This is a good way of providing essential growth to any garden but keep in mind that if you are on any kind of prescribed medication it too can end up in your garden .Thanks for the video. Peace.

    now CHUG!!

    @Wormfarmergeorge Maybe you are rooster? Happy gardening!

  20. Wormfarmergeorge says:

    I raise worms, chickens and I compost. But, I pee outdoors just because it feels good. I like to walk around my backyard, naked in the moonlight, also. The chickens get a good cackle out of it and the eggs are always bigger the next day.

  21. OrganicGarden123 says:

    @DC180 Yes, mathematically it is VERY wasteful to flush gallons/liters of drinkable water just to wash down maybe 10 ounces (300-400 milliliters) of urine. I agree with your advice to “Recycle your urine people!”

    I am reluctant, though, to put human fecal matter in my compost, since I have measured my compost temperatures and I do know that I don’t get my compost hot enough to kill all the bad bugs, so I’d rather not add them in there on purpose like that. I would be cautious on that.

  22. DC180 says:

    One FULL flush using the toilet is 9 litres…. Most people use the half flush for peeing but this adds up… Recycle your urine people!.. it’s all natural.. the next step is to squat over the compost bin for a number 2’s…..

    My wife thinks it’s Very gross that i go outside and piss all over the compost pile!! But it is Very Benificial and Helps the Decomposition process!!! I keep chickens and rabbits, we use there bedding material in the compost also great fertilizer!! Awsome Video bro alot of people do not know the benefits of urine in composting. Most just think it’s gross and would rather just waste water by flushing it!! Cannabis Uses a TON of nitrogen so my compost is chocked full of it!!

    @tdcjonm Thanks for your comments. Some folks have composting toilets for human poop, but I haven’t looked into it enough to feel comfortable going that route, so I share your concerns. Meanwhile, I also share your conclusion that human URINE is safe to add to compost (and if diluted enough it may be ok to add directly to the plants or the soil at the base of plants, but personally I only add it to compost). Happy Gardening.
