Compost made with sewage sludge
Maybe this is heresy on this forum but we're thinking of buying a load of compost for our 1500 sq ft garden. We'd have to truck in the materials for a decent sized compost pile anyway since our garden doesn't produce a whole lot of waste and the trees don't drop leaves here.
So, we've gotten lab test results from 3 compost sources. One tests high for e coli so they're out. The best is OMRI certified but it's a 3 hour round trip drive from here. The last one is close by but they make their compost using some municipal sewage sludge. We have their test results and they look fine -- no higher heavy metals or bacteria than the OMRI one. The question is... is there something else horrible in sewage sludge that isn't tested for in the compost lab tests? The stuff sounds pretty horrible on the internet.
Thanks in advance!
