Get your hands on the most desired compost in Seattle from Woodland Park Zoo. Fecal Fest is the annual event that invites local gardeners to enter a bid to purchase the exotic, highly-coveted Zoo Doo.
This year’s Zoo Doo is composed of feces by a variety of the zoo’s non-primate herbivores. Compost made from hippos, giraffes, mountain goats, tapirs and more, is used to grow perfect veggies and annuals.
Year-round you can purchase Zoo Doo in 2-gallon containers and 1-pint containers at the online ZooStore. Bulk amounts are available twice a year during Fecal Fest. Due to its popularity and limited quantities, the zoo has created a lottery system which can be entered online. For complete details, call 206.625.POOP (7667) for lottery information.
