EPA Grant Will Bring Gardens To Pueblo Homes Impacted By The Colorado Smelter Superfund Site

New gardens will sprout soon in south Pueblo’s Colorado Smelter Superfund site. It’s an area where toxic lead- and arsenic-contaminated soil is being removed from hundreds of properties.

A $50,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency is funding a project to help people grow their own food by building 25 raised bed gardens at area homes and giving residents the knowledge, tools and materials for successful harvests. A demonstration garden will be constructed at the Steelworks Center of the West.
