Want to really jump start your garden? How about some exotic poop?


The AP says Binder Park Zoo in southern Michigan is selling a composted mixture of manure they call "Zoo Doo" produced by exotic animals.

According to the Kalamazoo Gazette, zebra, antelope, giraffe and other animals are contributing to the compost.

Horticulturist Frank Cummins told the Battle Creek Enquirer that "Zoo Doo" is available from herbivores and will sell at a cheaper cost per load to zoo members than for nonmembers.

Binder Park Zoo promotes "Zoo Doo" as a "fun and creative way" to raise money and dispose of waste. The zoo also uses the compost as fertilizer at its facilities.
