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.
