Instructions for Collecting Your Sample:

Step 1: Identify an area of interest for your soil sample.

Step 2: Collect Soil – for a large area, collect soil from 5-10 random spots in that area, and combine in a clean container. For a small area, collect soil from 3 random spots.

 - Garden area – collect all soil from the surface down to 6-8 inches deep.

 - Play area/non-garden area – Collect all soil from the surface down to 1-2 inches deep.

Step 3: Mix soil well in a clean container.

Step 4: Remove pebbles, rocks, and roots, and air dry. Do not use a flame, oven, or hairdryer to dry the soil.

Step 5: Transfer 1-2 cups of the mixed soil into a clean, one-quart plastic zipper bag. (Limit of 3 sample bags per person.)
