Test garden soil quickly for heavy metal pollution (Oregonian)
Home gardeners in the Portland area are invited to have their garden soil tested for heavy metal pollution at two free public events next weekend: one on Saturday, Oct. 15, in East Portland, and the second on Sunday, Oct. 16, in Beaverton. The events, co-sponsored by Oregon State University Extension, will have Extension master gardeners on hand to test soil samples for lead and other heavy-metal pollution.
