Hello,

I am new to gardening.  Our garden used to have a septic tank and therefore a leaching bed.  It was removed at least 5 years ago.  I would like to have a vegetable plot on the old site of the leaching bed.  Would the soil be safe by now and how would I get the soil tested just to be sure?  I don't even know what dangers there might be in the soil, if any. 

Thank you
