"As ecologists say, everything is connected to everything, and how we manage and mismanage our shit, is a crucial part of the global challenge of our times."
A highly important ecological issue that no one wants to talk about is human waste management, but it is increasingly important today since it directly ties into water quality and water usage as well as habitat destruction and food availability. Using down to earth methods and humor, The Wastewater Gardener offers a much better solution to our human waste issues. I was really interested in Mark's time spent in the Biosphere as well as his practical applications of the wastewater garden and the plants he used within them. I live in a cooler climate and most of the examples were in warmer climates; however there were examples of wastewater gardens placed in Poland and France that would be more similar to my climate. Hopefully we will use Mark's insights to be more mindful of our human waste issue.
