in partial fulfillment of the requirements for
to the history of industrial and urban pollution, many sites that are
potentially desirable for urban agriculture are simply too polluted
to safely grow food. These contaminated sites are known as brownfields.
As a solution to this problem, there are a number of soil remediation
techniques available with varying cost, timeframe, accessibility and
effectiveness. The goal of this project was to prepare a guide for community
organizations addressing the topic of brownfield remediation as a solution
for urban agriculture.
