After digging for samples, we received a soil report from UMass Amherst. As assumed, the soil needs more nutrients, but happily, the levels of lead are low! You can view the full Soil Report.
For the community, SPSP used the report information to create the following poster to ponder the beauty and complexity of dirt(!), and, now that we know what’s in the soil, what shall we grow?
We will install this poster at the 38-40 Palmer Street lot on Saturday, April 20th at noon – come see!
