Join OSU Extension Cuyahoga County and Summit County to learn how to test your soil. Urban soils can be a source of food production, environmental resilience, and community beautification but may require revitalization to provide these benefits. Most urban soils do not have harmful levels of contaminants; however, they should be tested as a precaution. A soil test can also give you information about soil fertility. OSU Extension Educator Maggie Riviera will discuss why it is important to test our soil and how to take a soil sample and submit it to a lab.

Register here.

After you learn how to take the test, bring your sample to the Cuyahoga County Office to have it sent to OSU's Soil Lab. The cost of this service is $35 per sample. This includes nutrient analysis, organic matter, and heavy metals screening. Results are expected to be returned by November 17th. You will recieve a results printout and be contacted by the ANR Educator to discuss your results.
