Soil Testing Kits - Where to Find Your Local Soil Testing Lab

I wrote an article about starting an organic garden and mention getting your soil tested. I had a link to a site online that listed locations to get your soil tested, but the page is gone, the link is broken.

So, here's my version of a Soil Testing Lab Directory. I hope you find it helpful. Most state extension centers will do the testing for a very small fee.
