According to the BBC (quoted on pg 12 of Fine Gardening's August 2010 issue), male gardeners at Wimpole Hall, Cambridgeshire, are being encouraged to urinate on a bale of hay instead of using the loo. The urine in the so-called "pee-bale" is supposed to naturally activate the composting process. Why only male gardeners? Aside from the obvious reason, it is supposed to be "a bit of fun" and "the male stuff is apparently less acidic". Another benefit is that" Wimpole Hall expects to reduce its daily water use by up to 30 percent".
