RFC - Data Partner Survey
You are receiving this survey because you have expressed interest in partnering with the Real Food Campaign as a Data Partner! This info helps us determine your availability, shipping information and additional needs so we can all be successful in our effort to better understand and improve the state of nutrition in food in the US.
These questions apply to the 2019 survey period and produce:
- Late June 2019 through December 2019.
- Sampling of Carrots, Spinach, Kale, Lettuce, Cherry Tomatoes, and Grapes ONLY (for this year)!
- Sampling of 0 - 10cm and 10 - 20cm soil near the produce when sampled on farm.
You can find all the measurements we'll be taking here:

What is your name?
We are trying to get samples from a wide range of locations and management types. Which of the following locations and management types can you collect from between May - Nov 2019?
Be honest with yourself - don't say you'll do something you really can't do :) ! * regenerative is farming which engages in practices focused primarily on building soil, ecosystems, watersheds, as a way to increase yield/quality and decrease costs/effort.
Farmers Markets sampling
Farmers Markets sampling
On average, how many different sampling locations could you visit per week?
eg two locations would be: two stores OR one store and one farm OR two farmers markets... etc.
If none of these... then this isn't the program for you. That's ok! Go contribute another way -
In the locations you would visit, what produce is available and when?
We will use this info to build your sampling regime for the season
Do you have connections to conventional farmers who grow one or more of the above crops in your area?
We ask this because it's difficult to collect on-farm samples from conventional farms. We will create a sampling regime for you with more conventional farm samples if you have access to them, because many data collectors will not. Without a broad and full survey representing a wide range of farms, our collaborative project will not be effective in identifying + differentiating practices that produce high nutritional content, so this is an important piece!
Maybe, if I put effort in!
You will use an Android phone to collect sample data. Do you have an Android phone?
An Android phone is NOT an iPhone, Windows phone, or flip phone.
No (we will send you one!)
We will send you sample bags/containers as well as a starter kit which may include an Android phone and car charger (if needed), soil sampler, and other things to help you get started.
So we can follow up if needed!
Are you interested in collecting more samples on one day (a flash mob type sampling), rather than one or two samples per week?
Instead of sampling weekly, you could sample all at once on 2 - 3 separate dates. This may be easier for some people, and can make a fun community party. If you have a reflectometer, you can also collect reflectometer data at the same time.
Yes - contact me about doing a flash mob sampling.
No - I just want to sample weekly
