  • Agromin soil conditioner at EARTHS School.
    EARTHS Magnet School in Newbury Park was the recipient of approximately 2 tons of soil conditioner from Agromin this week. The school picked up 60, 1.5 cubic foot bags. The conditioner will be used in the school's 12 raised garden beds and in other garden areas depicting all sorts of growing environments.

    EARTHS (Environmental Academy for Research Technology and Earth Sciences) began in 2009 for kindergarteners through fifth graders. It offers a curriculum with a scientific focus: life science, earth science and physical science. The school incorporates the Full Option Science System (FOSS), which uses interactive science activities to teach reading, writing, language arts and social studies. A field trip to Agromin's organic recycling facility in Oxnard is scheduled for second graders later in the school year.

    This is exactly the kind of school we need to get our kids prepared for 21st Century jobs!
