This isn’t the actual title of the book–it’s the Wastewater Gardener. I reviewed this for Library Journal and really enjoyed it, but you may need to have my unique set of interests to feel the same way. I found it very inspiring to figure out that there are ways we really can live in harmony with the global water cycle and not waste all our potable water.
it was amazing

In exchange for the book I am posting my honest review.
This book will open your eyes to the usefulness of human waste. It may not be a popular topic, but, as the author points out throughout the book, it is an important one.
I expected this to be a “dry” read and I figured that it would take me a long time to finish reading this book.
really liked it
The Wastewater Gardener is Mark Nelson’s journey into the world of sewage treatment or shit management, whichever floats your boat. As part of the Biosphere 2 team, he helped to develop a water treatment and recycling system using plants that are normally part of a wetland. Wetlands are already efficient treatment systems that are capable of filtering out everything up to heavy metals. Some plants from the wastewater garden can even be harvested for food. Using and building upon this idea, Mark
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.
