Hi All, I've been thinking about installing a poop beast amongst some clumps of bamboo to create a turbo charged bamboo garden stake factory, Im wondering if there are any other Permies here that have built a poop beast, any tips, pointers or deadfalls to avoid? I would really love to see some pictures of others' setups, or designs that have been used.


Best Regards,


Dylan

Hi Dylan,
I think the term "poop beast" is generally used to describe a plant/shrub/tree that is known for it's voracious appetite. The beast is typically planted near an outhouse or manure pit to help break down/absorb the nutrients in the waste, and then can be used as mulch, in hugels, etc as a way to distribute those nutrients to the edible landscape, without the risk of pathogens coming in contact with the food grown.
I don't have the link to Paul's discussion post, but you should be able to find it using the search bar. There was a lot of good information shared in that thread!

*Edit to add: Also check out the list of recommended threads at the bottom of the page. From there you can find various posts related to your question!

HI Kc, Thank you for the answer, I have been doing more research, and realize now i was asking about a dry outhouse and tree-bog simultaneously.

Going to find the thread now...


Thanks Again
