Hi again! We life on the top of a mountain in montana and do not have a septic system. We do have a gray water system and a Biolet Delux Compost Toilet. We can buy compost directly from Biolet (so it comes over from sweden or someplace and costs 30.00 for 8 gal's worth. Or we can make our own following their receipe without voiding the warranty on this very expensive item! I need some help finding the ingedients needed for the compost. I am going to list the items and if any of you know of any place to get these things I would greatly appreciate a note or post a reply. Many thanks in advance!

Blond high fibrous, Canadian sphagnum peat moss

Pine wood shavings (can get from local feed store)

Dry molasses

hulls of buckwheat, wheat, peanuts or cocoa

course perlite

You might try your local professional concrete supply house for the perlite. It is used as a concrete additive and comes in different grades. You may be able to order it from the pro-desk at home despot.
