• Eagle Scout Project Benefits Camarillo Heights Elementary School Garden

  • The completed project.

    Adam Polen's Eagle Scout project at Camarillo Height Elementary School turned out fantastic!

    Adam's project was to upgrade existing garden boxes at the school and add three more. His project also included replacing loose gravel around the boxes with walk-on bark to give it a "greener" more inviting look.

    After lots of planning and organizing, about 15 Scout and family volunteers helped Adam, a member of Boy Scout Troop 225 in Camarillo, complete the project over a weekend in February. Existing planter boxes were primed and painted. New boxes were built and painted. Garden soil was added to the planters along with a variety of vegetable plants.

    Agromin was a happy participant in the project. Completing an Eagle Scout project is no easy task. It takes hard work and the type of organizational and people skills that will come in handy in the future.

    Great job Adam!

    Quite an improvement. This is a "before" photo.

  • Agromin Donates Mulch to Oak View Elementary School
    Friday, March 1, 2013 at

  • On Saturday morning, February 23, Oak View residents as well as volunteers from several major corporations came together to show that the spirit of doing is alive and well in Huntington Beach. Approximately 400 team members arrived from 16 major companies to help residents fix up parts of their Oak View neighborhood. As each bus arrived, parents, and students from Oak View Elementary School cheered them on.

    Agromin donated 40 cubic yards of ES2 mulch to finish the planting of beautiful new trees by the Huntington Beach Tree Society at the elementary school.

    Organizing the volunteers and donations was Oak View Renewal Partnership, a community organization dedicated to providing needed services to residents of the 1 square mile low-income community. Beautifying the area is also a big part of its efforts. For more information, go to Oak View Renewal Partnership's website http://oak-view.org/live/.
