Especially in the case of being vegetarian, manure is hard to come by, if you don’t have animals to work with. In the case of Permanent Agriculture, where we want to give back more than we are taking, building a reserve of abundance to have and to share, we can choose to be the animals and compost out own ‘waste’ preserve not only water but all of the valuable resources that were previously heading down our toilets to be dealt with in an overflowing chemical system of fear of our own bodies. Psychology might call this self rejection. At any rate my soul is ecstatic that this cycle is finally finding a way to close. Let the A-Bun-Dance begin!
