Hi Nathan,

I was going to send you the same document Ashwani sent.  It is a great resource.  Scott Kellogg runs an educational center up in Albany called the Radix Center and teaches classes in NYC at the Art Institute.  He and his partner Stacey have a great book and workshop series. 

I just attended one of their workshops a couple of weeks ago.  I can send you some information about them if you are interested.  They also have a great book you can order from their website: Toolbox for Sustainable City Living by Scott Kellogg and Stacey Pettigrew. Published in  2008. The book is full of do it ourselves solutions applicable to the urban environment. It's a must have for the urban practitioner library. Enjoy!

Hi Permies,

 I meant to say, thank you for all of your great ideas about dirt, its
amazing to have access to such a knowledge base. Some friends and I
have been collaborating on setting up a garden for a church in Harlem,
its part of an interfaith initiative between Union Theological
Seminary, the Jewish Theological Seminary, local mosques, churches and
synagogues. Our basic plan is to construct raised beds, but we're
interested in doing some experimentation with bioremediation. I'm not
sure to what extent the soil has been tested, I think its been tested
for lead. The consensus opinion is that its contaminated. Anyone have
ideas on bioremediation or manuals you use? Or any interest in running
a brief tutorial session on bioremediation? Thanks for the help!
