I release all of my films for free because I want their important stories to reach as many people as possible. It turns out that releasing things for free isn’t the best way to make money, who knew?

My income is entirely from making films. Most of which comes from donations and a small amount from YouTube views. Donations allow me to continue to make these films, so if you like what I do please consider sending a few bucks my way. You can get cool things in return such as film downloads, behind-the-scenes updates, and a fuzzy feeling in your heart for knowing that you’ve helped me out!


  1. Thank you for helping to make Humanure mainstream.

    I’ve often wondered if we could just build and leave the Humanure compost heap in the centre of the food forest or vegetable plot and leave it to the mycorrhizal fungal to do the distribution to our trees and plants.

  2. When I was a child in the 1940s, I lived near a Chinese market garden. Nobody minded my wandering around in there and the fact that the men who lived in the shack on the site used the whole garden as a toilet was obvious. At home we pulled a chain and flushed, these Chinese gardeners just went outside and squatted. I remember the size of the carrots they pulled up; they were huge!

  3. I find by cleverly adding a urine diverting funnel to the composting toilet bucket and attaching a hose to the funnel it vastly improves the composting ! End of hose can go into a half filled water container and makes a good product for plants. Urine is 93 percent water! Peter
