Got Dirt? we are seeking soil samples

We want your dirt. No kidding—we do. There are as yet undiscovered, helpful organisms living in soil and we want to find them. However, Earth is a big place and we need your help: please send us samples of soil from your land. The key is collecting as many diverse soil-types as possible, so go out there and explore the different environments, terrains and ecologies that exist on your property.

To participate, please fill out the information below and we will send you a Soil Collection Kit (including: USPS packaging, prepaid shipping labels and collection guide) for on-site collection in your area. Once we receive your soil samples, an Amazon gift card will be emailed to you as a thank you for your participation.

***A single soil sample for this campaign is considered to be half of one-gallon Ziploc bag (1 kg OR 2.2 pounds) and we request that you be able to send us at least 7 samples from your land.***

We hope you’ll contribute to our research!

How many samples can you collect?
We would like to collect as many samples as possible across as many diverse environments as possible. We are going to ship you boxes into which you can package your collected samples and send them back to us (the postage is pre-paid). In our experience you fit 7 samples into the USPS box we send to you. Based on your degree of interest we can send you one or more boxes. ***Reminder: a sample is a half of one-gallon Ziploc bag (1 kg OR 2.2 pounds).*** Please indicate if you can collect one or more boxes.
