On July 30th, Youth FX filmed a workshop given to members of Youth Organics at the Radix Center. Henry Spliethoff, a Research Scientist with the NYS Department of Health, and Scott Kellogg of the Radix Center gave a presentation on the health effects of lead exposure, and best practices for gardening in urban soils. The students learned how to take soil samples, and analyzed mock results from 3 different sites and came up with plans of how to proceed with gardens under the different scenarios. Special thanks to the Brownfields Team at the Center for Environmental Health, NYSDOH for their help.
It was a fantastic day!
When Youth FX have finished producing the documentary, we will share it on our website.
