Nature happens, and off-grid homesteaders need to deal with it! If you do not have a septic for your off-grid homestead, this is a very cool, low-tech solution.
Putting in a septic system can be incredibly pricey, and sanitary waste removal is an important aspect of healthy living. This homesteader has a great alternative if you’d like to save your money and actually reuse your “humanure” to fertilize your plants. Don’t worry, it’s not gross at all!
The system is very simple and uses some buckets, pallets, and lots of sawdust. One nice benefit to this system is you can build your house wherever you like, as you won’t have to worry about plumbing or pipes dictating where your house will go. Check it out!
