This project aims to examine an ecosystem on the campus of American University in Washington DC. The selected ecosystem is a 20 x 20 ft plot located within the Community Garden on campus. Among the plants being grown in this particular plot are tomatoes, mint and lavender as well as various grasses and weeds. There is also a pile of compost located in this section as well as a storage shed including various manmade tools and various pieces of farming equipment. A soil sample was extracted from the plot containing tomato plants. In the lab, this sample was prepared with 11.1 g of dried milk and 500 mL of water to create a sample that will be observed later to see what types of organisms are present.
