The Soil Contamination Guide You Need For Your Garden

The Soil Contamination Guide You Need For Your Garden

The University of Louisville has created a useful practice guide entitled Urban Agriculture and Soil Contamination: An Introduction to Urban Gardening. While the guide is centered around Louisville, it is a useful resource for anyone interested in starting an urban garden - whether it is in your backyard or a community garden. The guide goes over the dangers, sources, and acceptable levels of soil contamination; how to get and evaluate a soil test, as well as best options for remediation, when possible.
