FREE Lead Soil Screenings and Community Garden Event

August 19th, 2017 12:00pm - 3:00pm

Join Garden Dreams, Grow Pittsburgh, the Allegheny County Conservation District, Steel City Soils and partners on August 19th to learn why soil lead contamination is a serious problem in our communities and a potential risk to children and gardeners. Bring a properly collected, dry soil sample from your yard or garden and we will screen it for lead and other heavy metals instantly and free of charge. Staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide information on cleanup and remediation strategies. Stick around for a community celebration featuring raffles, workshops, a harvest swap and other fun activities!
