Testing soil for hidden contaminants in community gardens


IAS faculty member Melanie Malone's work on contamination in urban gardens and in the Duwamish Valley Research Coordination Network is featured on the UW News site. The story and video feature Malone teaching interns and community partners how to safely sample for contaminants in their gardens, as well as at parks and other communally-used spaces in the Lower Duwamish Superfund site.

Malone recently published an article on the politics and lack of regulations in community gardens in Agriculture and Human Values, which was entitled "Seeking Justice, Eating Toxics: Overlooked Contaminants in Urban Community Gardens."
