Kids from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Fillmore, Piru and Santa Paula worked hard to spread mulch around newly planted trees at the Fillmore Hatchery Garden. The Ventura County Resource Conservation District won a grant to work with the Boys & Girls Clubs to enhance the garden with native plants and teach kids about the local ecology at its outdoor classroom on the two-acre garden.
To help keep weeds under control, Agromin donated the mulch and the kids did the work—spreading the mulch around plants to keep weeds from sprouting.
Agromin is happy to partner with the Ventura County Resource Conservation District on these projects. Kids get hands-on experience working with the soil and growing native plants that wildlife and people can enjoy.
