    Friday, April 30, 2010 at

  • On Monday, March 22, Agromin's Premium Soil was used in helping launch a 1,000 school initiative against Childhood Obesity. Thus far, our 50/50 soil blend has been used in two SOCAL school's vegetable gardens (Kelso Elementary, Will Rogers Learning Community School).

    On hand at Kelso Elementary were were Gabrielle Reece, Derek Fisher, Cat Cora and Tobey MaGuire.

    The Teaching Garden is a place where teachers and principals with community partners from the entertainment, sports and food industries, the Farmer-Veteran Coalition and GrowingGreat come together to create a real-life garden laboratory.
