Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:073 Tip: Gardening in soil near buildings with lead based paint can result in the heavy metal being concentrated in the plant. Soil should be checked before planting edible plants near buildings with possible lead paint.
