workshop happenening at the L-Lot, 3303 6th Ave. North Troy, NY

 

As part of my ongoing research into remediating contaminated soils, I am co-presenting a hands-on workshop with my NY state colleagues: permaculturalist Scott Kellogg (of Radix Sustainability Center), farmer and food activist Rebeka Rice and scientist Kate Meierdiercks of Siena College , who will be collecting soil samples to test in the college's X-Ray Fluorescence analyzer. This instrument is very sensitive and can be used to detect heavy metal contamination in both soils and plant tissue.
