QUESTION: Advice re: soil testing for lead 30 May 2008 Victoria, Australia
We are in the process of setting up a school community garden and the question of soil contamination has been raised. The 'Seed to Seed' publication from seed savers about setting up a school kitchen garden has a link to your site as a resource.
What advice could you give us as far as soil testing goes and are there any local (Melbourne) resources you could recommend?
ANSWER: 20 Apr 2009
The trouble with going directly to a Melbourne lab is that they do not give you direct interpretation guidelines, which are part of the kit.
