WARNING! Sewage sludge is toxic. Food should not be grown in "biosolids." Join the Food Rights Network.

Kate Kurtz studied under major sewage sludge advocate Sally Brown at the University of Washington.[1] She is an avid promoter of using sewage sludge products on food-growing lands, including on Alleycat Acres Urban Farm Collective farms in Seattle, Washington. In 2010, she encouraged the use of GroCo, Seattle, Washington's sewage sludge product misleadingly labled "biosolids compost" on Alleycat Acres urban farmlands.[2]
