Participant Instructions for Soil in U.S.A.

  1.  Select your place: Choose your special place to collect a sample of soil from. Please be as specific as possible (ex: under a tree you once planted in your backyard).

  2.  Obtain your soil: If you are able to go to the site, please go and gather the soil sample yourself or ask a friend or family member to gather it for you.

  3.  Gather your soil: Please gather 250 ml (1 cup) of soil. Please do not select potting mix soil, but rather soil that is native to the location. Place your soil sample in a glass jar (thoroughly cleaned, label removed), that is approximately 3” wide and 4’’ tall (ex: a vitamin, food or cosmetic  jar). On a separate sheet of paper write: your name, email, phone number and the address where the soil was collected from.
