Ventura Mayor Christy Weir and Agromin CEO Bill Camarillo presented Lincoln Elementary School in Ventura with the 2009 Green School Award for achievement in environmental excellence. Agromin is the award's official sponsor.
The November 16 presentation at Ventura City Hall Council Chambers included Agromin's donation of a check to the school for $500. The school was recognized for its recycling collection system that helps fund the school's art program and an impressive gardening program.
Green School Awards was created three years ago by the City of Ventura to encourage schools to become more environmentally aware. Agromin partners with Ventura to recycle its green waste into soil products available to residents, landscapers and farmers. It was a natural fit for the city and Agromin to join forces. Kids "get" the importance of recycling--hopefully it will be a life-long habit!
