VegeSafe is a community science participation program run by Environmental Science staff at Macquarie University. The principal staff involved are Professor Mark P. Taylor and PhD Researchers Marek Rouillon, Paul Harvey and Louise Kristensen and Research Assistant Steve George. We seek to inform the community about metal and metalloid contaminants in their garden soil through our FREE soil metal testing program. Participants receive a formal report with their soil results and are provided with links to information and advice about "what to do next" in the event of soils containing elevated concentrations of metals and metalloids.
Our motto is "Carry On Gardening" because this is exactly what we want people to do - in the knowledge that their soils are metal free as is the produce from their gardens.
