• Come to T.O. Earth Day--Agromin's Giving Away 6 Tons of Planting Mix
    Monday, April 23, 2012 at

  • Agromin is giving away six tons of its outdoor planting mix during the City of Thousand Oaks/Conejo Recreation and Park District's 15th Annual Arbor/Earth Day celebration. The free event is Saturday, April 28 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Conejo Creek Park North (1379 East Janss Road behind the Thousand Oaks Library). The planting mix is available to Thousand Oaks residents in 360, 1 1/2 cubic foot bags. Distribution will be in the Conejo Creek Park South parking lot across the street from the library.

    "Going to Arbor/Earth Day will hopefully get most of those attending in the mood to start or expand their garden," says Bill Camarillo, Agromin CEO. "The planting mix is particularly effective in conditioning sandy or clay soil but is excellent when planting vegetables, flowers, roses and shrubs. It gives soil the nutrients it needs and the right texture to allow air and water to reach plant, tree and lawn root systems."

    Agromin processes more than 385,000 tons of green waste each year. The green material is collected at curbside in the Conejo Valley and throughout Ventura County and is then chopped, cleaned and naturally composted before becoming soil products. The products are then distributed to farmers, landscapers and to consumers in bags or in bulk. "Just by using one of the free bags of planting mix means you're doing your part locally to close the recycling circle," says Camarillo. 

    The planting mix is available on a first come, first served basis.
