I have been composting our humanure for 10 years, using Joe Jenkins system with outdoor bins.
I'm just getting started with vermiculture and am interested in composting our humanure with the worms as it seems like it would be quicker and provide a better product.
I'm wondering if anyone you know of is doing this, and what their system is. I am also wondering about any research on pathogens that might remain in the worm castings and if there is a way to get it tested to be sure.
I would like to use this vermicompost on our vegetable garden - not just ornamentals or fruits trees --
I would prefer not to wait 2 years to use my vermicompost if I can have the castings tested to find out it is safe. Do you know how to get it tested?
Thank you very much! I hope more people will begin to compost their humanure as it is not only a huge waste of water but also a huge waste of nutrients to flush it down the toilet.
