OGF Sample Collection protocol
OGF Soil Drying Procedure
Use this sheet to keep track of soil sample ID numbers and soil specifications of collection site.
Sample registration is mandatory. Record your collected data in Anecdata.
When you’ve finished collecting samples, email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange shipment.
Make sure the sample bags are securely closed before sending to prevent loss and cross contamination. Pack your samples as tightly as you can so they don’t move around in transit. You could stuff the remainder of your package with newsprint or bubble wrap.
How to Check Results
Access Orchards, Gardens and Fields project on Anecdata to see results of submitted samples.
At the end of the project, you’ll write up a case study. Case studies will be posted on the website to help future teachers, will provide a record of the variety of curriculum and activities students took part in, and document the community meetings. Check out the OGF Case Studies tab for a template.
