Naming the Garden, Testing the Soil

We are almost official! Our soon-to-be community garden now has a logo and name - The Moore St. Family Garden - thanks to Jermaine of Mainstream Entertainment, and a Facebook Page, thanks to Christina, the driving force behind this whole plan.

I also just received the analysis report for soil samples that I sent to the UMass Soil Testing Lab. By some stroke of luck, our lead levels are low. I was sure that the soil would be highly contaminated -- this is Philly, after all. If you're super interested in this type of thing, the soil test results are a pretty fascinating read.
