Agromin's Dave Green took
them on a 45-minute tour--showing the girls where the raw materials arrive, how

Brownie leader Heather
Gout says the girls had an amazing time on their field trip and learned a lot.
Hopefully, the visit will instill a lifelong desire to recycle and reuse and to
keep our environment clean and safe.
