At QuizSite, how many main topics can you choose from?

Just Doo It!

Humans have long revered the great animals that walk the earth, but many of us turn our noses up at their droppings. Gardeners and horticulturists, however, have long known the benefits of animal dung. Thanks to ZooDoo, manure is now being transformed into an effective compost for plants. ZooDoo's Web site explains how composting breaks down organic matter, such as manure, into basic elements, such as potassium and nitrogen. Just follow your nose to http://www.zoodoo.com and meet the elephants, giraffes and rhinos whose droppings are helping gardeners all over the country. Once here, you can share your dung story with an online audience or send a greeting card to a friend or foe.
