have collected soil from ALL 193
is a huge accomplishment, with many thanks to our
Volunteers for their time and effort.
Although the project is called Common Ground 191,
there are actually 193 countries in all, so we have
one more to go. Why are there 193? This is because
in 2006, after the project was well under way, Serbia
and Montenegro became independent countries, and South Sudan also became its own country.
project is about the stories that accompany each soil
sample. We welcome multiple samples and stories from
each country. If you would like to volunteer, please click

each flag sits a jar... About half of the jars are
full at this time!
