A great group of volunteers descended on four locations on Harvard Boulevard in Santa Paula--and happily got their hands dirty. They removed weeds and trash, amended soil, planted flowers and shrubs, mulched, raked and watered. The volunteers are part of America in Bloom--a national grassroots effort to connect people with plants and to promote civic pride and volunteerism. The community now enjoys beautiful new landscapes along the boulevard.
Agromin, which donated 1 ton of planting mix to the project, was one of several companies participating. Others included Crop Protection Services, Do-Rights Nursery, Amazing Grace Landscape, Coleman Landscape, Reyes Landscape, Digital Edge Photography, Santa Paula Times, O’Reilly’s and Heritage Hardware.
Diane Davis head Santa Paula's America in Bloom chapter. The board of directors consists of Gary Nasalroad, John Chamberlain, Cathy Sorenson and Don Loomer.
The organization has identified other areas in Santa Paula that could benefit from America in Bloom beautification efforts. Once re-landscaped, the group then hopes to enlist schools, service organizations, churches and neighborhood groups to “adopt” these areas to help with maintenance.
