Participants will increase their understanding on soils contamination, of how to sample soils, map those samples and understand sample results in order to prevent exposure.
The workshop concludes on urban soil safety in context of heavy-metal-safe-growing and risk management in production, backyard, community and school farms and gardens, with continued emphasis on best practices.
