soilSHOP stands for Soil Screening Health Outreach and Partnership. SoilSHOPs are free community health education programs designed to raise awareness about lead hazards and how to reduce and prevent lead exposures.
Children are especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of lead. Testing soil is the only way to know if it contains lead.
Bring dry garden or yard soil to the Helena Farmer’s Market on Fuller Ave between 9 AM and 1 PM to have your soil tested for lead for free. For more information on collecting soil, scan the QR code in the image above.
