However the human waste issue .. if the colony is selling food grown on the colony for profit . That colony must be subject to heath inspections . Even if they are classified as a religious or ethnic group . I dont see the human waste slipping under the radar . Maybe at that colony but at the others I have been to and worked at no .

I would say it will vary from worker to worker, colony to colony.
Sometimes the guy spreading the $hit has had a few to many before heading out. Or they have been doing it for decades and think nothing of it.

Yes, they are subject to inspections like all commercial industry. However, the inspector will never be there on poop pumping day.

At the end of the day the only danger with pathogens is if there are sick people. Also, if applied before the land is tilled and planted and given some time to decompose there's very little danger involved, especially if the soil is a very microbially active natural soil. Now, spraying raw sewage over sprouted plants, now that's nuther' story all together. Probably the biggest waste there is in North America is the way we handle waste. We take ourselves out of the nutrient cycle only to add chemicals to replenish what is missing. Makes no sense.

I find it even more disturbing that most people believe chemical fertilizers are perfectly fine to use. What is it about our mental capacity that allows us to believe it is ok to use cow/horse manure for fertilizer but using our own own waste is an act of disgust. Here's a bit of info for you.

I'm a priss, apparently not eco-friendly and done with this thread because I don't feel like substituting fermented crap for Nutella. Like I said before, knock yourself out.
