I never stopped to think about lead in soil, until a friend of mine posted about it on facebook. ( For all you twitterers out there, @ShannyM515, had mentioned that she couldn’t plant due to lead being in her soil. As I read that, I started to think about my own soil. We live in Des Moines, Beaverdale area, which is an old neighborhood where many homes have been painted and treated for lead paint. That paint could have leaked into the soil making it hazardous to start utilizing it for a garden. With the recent popularity of home gardens, I thought it would be great to share a link that I just found on lead.

For Urban Gardeners, Lead is a Concern
