Launching Nov 15, 2011 – Urban Outdoor Research and Learning Lab – Ohlone College, Newark, California

by Geoffrey on November 11, 2011

This will be a research center for the Environmental Studies department at Ohlone College.  Joint project with Waste Management Inc.

At the Urban Outdoor Research and Learning Lab, students will collect and analyze data on the viability of various soil mixes as a planting media.  This is soil comprised of recycled materials once bound for landfill.   Organic composts and soil provided by WM Earthcare – data will be used by WM EarthCare to develop its organic recycled products.
