Soil Testing Kits Available in the Demonstration Garden

— Written By

Do you need soil testing kits? While our office doors are closed to the public, community members can pick up a soil testing kit outside our office in the Demonstration Gardens. After you pick up a kit, take it home, collect your soil, and mail it to Raleigh for analysis! Read on for details.

We have set up a station for picking up soil testing kits in our Demonstration Garden. The kits include 3 items:

To pick up your kit, visit our office at 1450 Fairchild Rd, Winston-Salem, NC 27105. Drive to the east end of our parking lot. Kits are available in the brochure holder below our Demonstration Garden sign. Please close the lid to protect the papers from the weather! And don’t forget, all visitors to county buildings are asked to wear a mask.

After you collect your soil samples, you will need to mail them to the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Service’s soil testing lab in Raleigh – see your form for the address. They will email you the test results. If you can’t find that email, use this website to search for your soil test. If you need help interpreting a soil test report, contact your local Extension agent.
