A "Grow Food Party" crew from the Ojai Valley Green Coalition installed 16 vegetables gardens in June throughout the Ojai Valley. Half were created in raised garden beds measuring 4' x 10', others were in 2' x 20' borders and some were contained in wine barrels. Agromin supplied compost, while Commonwealth Financial Network supplied plants and other materials. The gardens are donated to residents.
The Ojai Valley Green Coalition has over 500 members in Ojai dedicated to working together to create an environmentally sustainable community. Its goal is to educate themselves and others about ecological issues, to promote sustainable practices locally, advocate environmental responsibility as a priority to elected officials and to bring green consciousness into their lives.
Agromin applauds the Coalition's efforts!
