RE: kids gardening in toxic waste dumps


you know, i've tested lots where buildings have come down and had the
results range from squeeky clean to high-grade ore, and can't figure a
pattern.  there's just only one way to know for sure.

Adam,
You are on the right track. 
If you suspect problems, test the soil. If there are problems and you still
want to use the site, then the area should be capped, and raised beds built
with new soil used for growing. Almost all urban areas these days have some
level of contamination, and we are really fortunate when a clean site is
located.
