More than 80 second graders and their parents from EARTHS
Magnet School in Newbury Park recently visited Agromin to learn all about green
waste recycling and composting. The kids got a firsthand look at how yard
clippings, through a natural process, turn into compost for use on farmland and
landscapes throughout Ventura County.
EARTHS' curriculum centers on earth, life and physical
sciences. It's a perfect match with Agromin's proactive focus on closing the
"recycling loop" through safe, natural sustainable practices.
