First Workshop Day in Arica!
Abby, Sebastián, Dan, Daniel, and Caleb traveled to Arica in the northernmost part of Chile to work with Soil Justice Fellows in the city yesterday and held the first soil workshop today. Fellows shared with one another their motivations for being at the workshops and what they expected and hoped to find with the soil toolkit. Dan and Sebastián explained how to collect soil samples at the end of the session, and everyone left with sampling kits. Arica has a semi-arid climate, and the soils are very dry as a result. In this case, there won’t be a real need to set samples up to dry before sieving and analyzing.
