The Towa by Goldkannan
Urine-Therapy Meets Nitrogen-Rich Soil
I’ve been asked how an alternative medicine practitioner like myself hasn’t ever tried urine-therapy. While the thought of drinking my own pee has never sounded all that attractive, the possibility of ingesting it through plants as a fertilizer somehow doesn’t sound so bad(?).
The practical founder of the Swedish based, Guldkannan, Åsa Lövberg, now offer you an affordable and sustainable way to fertilize your garden. The concept is the Towa, part chamber pot, part watering can! Airtight and odorless, the Towa can be placed in your loo ready to receive. Just add a little water and voila, liquid gold!
Håkan Jönsson, associate professor of cultivation at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences suggests that nitrogen from urine when mixed from water is just as good as the pre-mixed elements you’ll find in gardening stores. Jönsson points out that fertilizing your garden with this liquid gold can yield up to seven times the amount of produce than that an un-fertilized garden.
While I haven’t seen these hit the garden-store shelves state-side yet, I’m eager to hear from anyone who employs the Towa in their home and garden! Leave a comment below and let us know if the Towa is really worth its weight in gold!
