    Hi All,

    I am agisting my horse in Glen Waverley and we have a pile of poo ready to go. It's around 5 cubic metres with good access.

    If anyone would like to collect and arrange a regular collection please contact me. We would ideally like someone interested in taking the whole lot monthly. Free fertiliser!!:)

    If thats coming from a stable fair enough. But if thats coming from that paddock, your selling soil right out the door. Why not compost it with other things like old hay etc.. and return that carbon back to the soil. ???? Doesn't sound like a very permaculture thing to do!!!

    You don't miss much Gman.
    Nick is absolutly right but I get a sense that an agisted horse, no matter what the age, would create alot of poo and getting it processed on site may cause a problem.
    Lets hope some local permie can help out in another win win

    thanks for posting this, and I hope someone can use it! If I was close by I'd be there every second week!
