The soil in older, urban neighborhoods can be contaminated with lead. Gardening in the city can be done safely, but there are steps everyone should take to reduce their exposure to lead, especially while gardening with children. Learn the basics of soil contamination with Michele Bakacs, Associate Professor and Extension Agent at Rutgers and best practices for having safe soil while gardening.
Our Earth Day, Every Day webinar series (lovingly called #E2D2) focuses on steps everyone can take to protect the environment. We can all do our part to take actions that make our homes more sustainable, from environmentally-friendly lawn care, to recycling, to conducting a home energy audit.
