Honestly the only thing keeping me from it is that i want to have a business plan of my own to be able to move forward with and be able to fall back on.
I would definitely want to host gappers to help with things and would love to setup workshops as well. On this and other topics.

I have read similar description about urine in new and old text...If I may share, I believe from reading other text and direct experience this is a "misnomer" about urine for the most part as it applies to textiles, and its "uric acid" application as a cleaning agent.
