When: Tue., March 5, 7 p.m. 2019

Many city dwellers take nutrition matters into their own hands through urban gardening but is urban air good for our garden veggies? Of course, water, air and soil are key foundations of plant life. But, what happens when metals in the form of gases and particulate matters are added ingredients? Ahkinyala Cobb-Abdullah would like to explore that topic with you over a sip of some sort at the next Science Pub RVA; Toxic Air in Urban Veggie Gardens. How is this subject studied and what does the research tell us? Learn about the interactions of urban air, plants and the impact on the produce on our plates over a sip of some sort while hanging out with other curious people.
