  • Agromin contributed mulch and bark products to Project Playhouse currently on display through October 19 at The Lakes (2200 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd.) in Thousand Oaks. The project, comprised of three 8'x10' playhouses and a doghouse, is a fund-raiser for HomeAid Los Angeles/Ventura. The playhouses will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

    Agromin worked with Nick Williams and Associates, which created the landscape around the playhouses.

    The playhouses are open for tours from noon to 6 p.m. on weekends. A $2 donation is suggested.

    Thursday, October 2, 2008 at

  • Gardening expert and radio personality Nick Federoff spoke at the 40th Annual Apartment Association of Southern California trade show on September 25 in Long Beach. The topic was "How to Make $$$ the Water Wise Way." Nick quoted drought concerns by former Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton, cited California Gov. Schwarzenegger's 20 percent water reduction plan, and explained Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's "Drought Buster" rules and

    Nick then talked about the products he recommends to conserve water. He highlighted Agromin's bark and mulches. These products help retain water, inhibit weed growth and prevent soil erosion. With Agromin's bark and mulches, gardeners can use less water as their plants, vegetables and flowers can go longer between scheduled waterings.

    Agromin is a proud sponsor of Sustainable Environmental Education (SEE,
