• Downtown Oxnard Planters Get a Shot of Agromin Potting Soil
    Monday, June 6, 2016 at

  • Downtown Oxnard, with its historical buildings, parks, international dining and its growing cultural and entertainment scene, is in the middle of a beautification project. Dotted around downtown are 120 large 30" planters and another 32 various sized, smaller planters filled with water-wise, drought tolerant plants and succulents.  Many of the planters have been in place since 2011. Back then, Agromin donated potting soil to give the new plants a great start. Five years later, Agromin has made another donation. This time, 15, 1 cubic-foot potting mix bags. The soil will be placed in the planters to help refresh the existing soil.

    Abel Magana, executive director of the Oxnard Downtown Management District, oversees the efforts to keep downtown clean, safe and inviting to visitors and businesses. He says the initial Agromin soil donation played a big role in keeping plants healthy and growing. "We’re especially grateful to Agromin for its ongoing support," says Abel. "Agromin has been with us since we began."

    Through the Downtown Oxnard Foundation, murals will soon be appearing on utility boxes. Expect to see decorative pole banners as well as upgrades to the hanging flower baskets in Plaza Park.

    Abel says the new soil is being placed in the pots now--just in time for the summer festivals (including the Salsa Festival at Plaza Park) and the tourist summer season.

    Glad to do our part!
