Urine-ponics for urban agriculture

The urine-ponics is an adequate technic in urban conditions, especially in cities with deciduous trees.
For produce, you can use containers with drainage at 10 cm from their bottom. The containers have been filled
with 90 % leaves and 10% of soil in the top, so, it better starts in autumn.

Urino-ponics use an initial dose of fermented urine, 1.5 liters to activate the biological processes in the container, and the
water necessary (approximately 4 liters in 10 liter's containers).

During the plant grows, the urine doses can be about 150 milliliters per week. After 8 to 10 months, you can
harvest food and soil created from the original leaves. With this new soil, you can start a new
process in the next autumn.

In Mexico, we have a lot of good experiences with families, schools and office building.
