Second Workshop Day in Arica!

Published by danwalls on

Throughout the day, Fellows brought their soil samples to the workshop site and Dan sieved them to remove particles and debris larger than 2 mm in preparation for the day’s testing. In the second workshop session, Fellows used the arsenic test from the Community Soil Study Toolkit to measure the amount of inorganic arsenic in their soil samples. During the gaps of time in between steps in the procedure, Mónica and Saed joined us via a video call to brief everyone on what soil is, why building healthy soils is important for community health, how we can work with our existing soils to improve soil quality and community health, and answered Fellows’ questions.
