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
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!
