As the group says, “We collected hundreds of produce samples from across Sonoma County while fires were still blazing.
Once we get results from the lab, we’ll be able to give guidance to farmers and gardeners across the state on the impact of wildfires and air pollution on the food safety of produce.
*** This is community-initiated, community-driven science, with the support of your local UCCE Sonoma. It wouldn’t happen without you! ***
HOW TO SUPPORT
Today is the LAUNCH of our crowd-sourcing campaign! We need at least $500 in community donations to meet our matching grant funding from The Pollination Project, which combined will get us half-way to our $2000 goal to get all samples from one site into a lab for analysis!
Please donate to UCCE Sonoma‘s “Citizen Science Projects” fund and write “Produce Safety” in the comments.
