Nobody knows the real history of the land he cultivates, and even less so in urban areas. Old agricultural lands, former industrial wastelands, these soils that today serve as a shared garden. They have been exposed to certain forms of pollution including lead and cadmium.

But what to do to cultivate the healthiest possible?



Some recommendations for budding gardeners.

The maintenance of his garden begins with simple gestures. Like not giving up objects composed of zinc, or abandon old practices such as the use of plant protection products.

It must also be protected by creating a natural barrier made of hedges, as well as plant mass in order to limit as much as possible air pollution that is not without consequences on crops.

In order to be certain that the cultivated land is not polluted by heavy metals, the second step is a soil diagnosis to identify the toxic elements that are present there.


And after ?
