PermacultureWest is very excited to have Ecoburbia on our online series this September.

Hot Composting and Humanure !

So you’ve been making compost for a while, using it in your garden, but now you want MORE . . .  Or maybe you have started to realise that what we flush down the loo could be used more productively?

If so, this workshop is for you. Rather than spending too much time on theory, Shani is going to present a few interesting and relevant facts so you know what is actually going on in a hot compost pile, before turning to sharing the hot composting and humanure systems she uses at Ecoburbia.

Put it this way – she now has enough of the stuff that her garden is alive with it and she is trading compost with her neighbours.

Come and share and learn and plan for about potential systems where you are!


Shani Graham and her partner Tim are from Ecoburbia, a business aimed at creating more sustainable and resilient communities. Their work ranges from presenting workshops on good solar house design at local councils, to inspiring corporate executives to introduce a worm farm to the office kitchen. They are aware that developing community is essential to this work, and so make sure there is lots of interaction, fun and play in whatever they are doing.

Shani and Tim’s business Ecoburbia won a Fremantle Chamber of Commerce award in 2011, and a West Australian Best Small Business Environmental award the same year. Shani was the Fremantle Citizen of the Year in 2011. The next year they were honoured to win the Australia wide Banksia Award for Excellence in Small Business. Discovering that awards made very little difference to her life, Shani stopped applying for them and is content milking goats, talking to her neighbours and tending to her garden.
