Covid-19 Notice

With the current Covid-19 situation, the CARA Soil Health Lab is working at limited staff capacity to align with social distancing guidelines and with new Covid-19 protocols. With these new protocols and social distancing guidelines, the soil processing procedures are delayed. With processing procedures being delayed it will result in final reports being delayed.

The CARA staff & Board members have decided to close the Soil Health Lab for pedestrian traffic in order to align with what is promoted to prevent the potential spreading of the Covid 19 virus.

Please contact Dr. Yamily Zavala at carashl@telus.net with any questions or before you submit a sample for testing for the time being.

Each soil has its own bio-signature. Soil micro-organisms need to be fed and nurtured by us. What is not measured, cannot be fixed.
