We opened our third Community Garden in Beaverton, Oregon this spring, and did conduct a full slate of soil tests.  We felt that the City needed to have some degree of certainty that there would be no soil contamination issues at some point in the future that would become a liability to the City.  It’s expensive – but a matter of due diligence we felt was necessary.

Wondering if other Cities parks and rec. dept are doing soils testing on potential community garden sites ;or are they just developing them without looking into the soil?  This has come up in Sacramento by the parks and Rec dept…. it could slow or stop projects due to lack of city funds to address their concern.  testing or remediation of the sites can be budget killers.


Lots of feed back needed on this
