They don't say anything about it on their website so I put zoodoo then compost in their search box and turned up zilch. In 2010 they got a sustainability award for recycling and I wonder if they expanded on that and recycle all of it. You could call them.

Sure, I'd like to know. Say, wouldn't it be fantastic if we could have access to the Columbus Zoo and The Wilds? It would be a composters exotic poo-dream come true. Razz

I wonder if zoodoo from wild animals would put off enough 'wild smell' to deter deer?



The Columbia zoo is taking orders for their zoodoo, $45 for 1 cubic yd. I haven't done this yet, don't want to drive a hundred miles. They say they have over 100 lbs per day. I guess this will pay for the food for the animals.

I don't know the answer to your question. Oh, and SC is a little far to drive for poo, even if they gave it away for free. rofl

I found some "Zoo Brew" at a Clintonville store. It's made up of
all natural and unique compost comprised from cafeteria food remnants,
zoo manure and bedding, brewery salvage, pet food remnants, yard
trimmings & coffee grounds . Abundant in nutrients and humus. The store name is "City Folk's Farm Shop" and the web site is
http://www.cityfolksfarmshop.com They sold it for about $4. for a 1.5 cu. ft bag.

Also Price Farm Organics in Delaware has this and some other composts. I'm going to head up there tomorrow.
There web site is http://www.pricefarms.org/expertise.html

I got some from Price Farms - north of the Zoo a bit. It was about $3 for 1.5 cu yds.
