Join us for an enriching evening talk with Steve Calanog, U.S. EPA Federal On-Scene Coordinator, soil expert, and gardener! Steve will address some of the biggest concerns for urban gardeners — the contamination of garden soil with lead, arsenic, and other hazardous materials. Hear about his trials and use of fish bonemeal to remediate lead. Find out what to be on the lookout for in your soil, bioremediation strategies, and methods for gardening more safely.
