Re: Pet Waste and Composting / Manure Tea

I want to thank everyone who took the time to respond to my question about 
pet waste and composting. I realize that I hadn't fully explained my 
gardening situation -- it's a one-parcel vacant lot in a distressed 
neighborhood. Although fenced in, it's regularly visited by a pack of feral 
cats. I shoveled out several dead cats while clearing the lot of weeds and 
trash. Area residents regularly lob loaded Pampers over the fence, so there's 
probably human fecal contamination as well. Under the circumstances, I 
wouldn't plant so much as an herb for human consumption in the space, which 
is why I'm more interested in how to use pet waste than what bad things might 
happen to people who eat it.
