Testing Soils for Heavy Metals and Developing Effective Remediation Strategies

October 19, 2022

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Location: Online

This webinar is the first in a series about Nurturing City Soils for Healthy Organic Vegetables. Urban farming can bring lots of benefits, but soils in cities can be degraded and, in some cases, contaminated. This can make vegetable crops more susceptible to pests and put farmers and consumers at risk. During this webinar series, participants will learn how to determine if their soils are contaminated and what they can do to minimize risks while producing healthy and nutritious organic vegetable crops. They will also learn how to restore degraded soils in cities and quantify whether their efforts are paying off.
