The Healthy Soils Project

Our research aims to help communities understand more about soil contamination, including how chemicals like lead move throughout gardens and come in contact with plants and people. We work in gardens and farms – many of them in urban areas – as well as in the lab, field, and greenhouse. This research informs our recommendations for healthy gardening practices so that communities can address concerns about contaminants and enjoy the many benefits of gardening and farming.
