Hi from Colorado's gettin'-ever-chillier San Luis Valley! I've discussed a community garden with other locals and would like to know the benefits and hazards of using chicken poop-based compost, and what this may pose to children. I'm aware that children under five years old should not handle the chicks they see at the spring sales, but is there a later concern about salmonella, etc., that I/we should be aware of? I have the chickens (of course!), 3-4 bags of leaves, and have access to topsoils and fertilizers. Your thoughts, s'il vous plait?
