Agromin, the green materials recycler for 19 Southern California cities and a premium soil manufacturer, donated 15 tons of garden humus to Habitat for Humanity's Simi Valley building project. The humus was delivered on December 12 as a soil conditioner for the front yard landscapes of three just-completed single-family homes on the corner of Royal and Sycamore Avenues. The homes took just over a year to build by Habitat volunteers and the new homeowners.
Each of the three homes was sponsored by organizations:
Lot #1: Conejo Valley Interfaith Coalition
Lot #2: Starbucks Coffee Company
Lot #3: Simi Valley/Moorpark Area Realtors Association and “1Life2Live," the Tyler Broberg Foundation (www.1l2l.org)
A landscaping party to put the finishing touches on the outside of the homes will take place on an upcoming Saturday--depending on weather conditions. To volunteer, go to www.habitatventura.org and to the "Sign Up" page, or call 805-485-6065.
