Biosolids in the Garden?
We're doing a major garden overhaul right now in preparation for spring planting and we want to incorporate some compost from the local landfill in to improve our soil. It does contain biosolids (human waste broken down and treated). I'm a bit concerned, however.
I asked the lady at the landfill if it was safe for vegetable garden use and she said it was .... but then she went on to say that we should always wash our hands after working in it and that we should not allow pets or children into where it is.
WHAT?! I can eat the food that its used to produce but I can't let the kids touch it!? I don't get it.
So my question to you all is if anyone knows or has read anything about the safety of using it with crops. I tried doing research but couldn't find anything real scholarly,
Thanks a bunch!
