Agromin's new headquarters at 201 Kinetic Dr. in Oxnard were made official at a ribbon cutting ceremony July 30 sponsored by the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce.
Over 75 community leaders attended the ceremony including County Supervisor Kathy Long and Oxnard Mayor Pro Tem Andres Herrera. The crowd received a tour of the facility that houses a variety of commercial wholesale bulk soil products including mulches and bark. Previously housed in sites throughout the county, Agromin's consolidation into a centrally located 6,000 square foot facility will cut down on employee driving. With less employees on the road, Agromin will be able to reduce its carbon footprint.
Agromin is designated a Climate Action Leader by the California Climate Action Registry, a non-profit organization originally formed by the State of California. Members voluntarily promise to monitor and register greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Registry members that have successfully verified their emissions inventory earn the status of Climate Action Leader.
Agromin manufactures premium soil products for the agriculture and horticulture trades and for consumer use. For more than 30 years, Agromin has provided quality soil amendments and products to some of California's largest vegetable, citrus, avocado and strawberry growers. Agromin is also the green waste recycler for over 50 Southern California communities. Each month, Agromin receives and processes thousands of tons of urban wood and green waste. Agromin then uses a safe, organic and scientific system to formulate its soil products from the processed recycled green waste. The result is more vigorous and healthier plants and gardens, and on the conservation side, more room in landfills and less greenhouse gas emissions. Agromin is the U.S. Composting Council's "Composter of the Year."
