Mulch sales benefit Ocean Friendly Gardens Program

As many of you know we are volunteering with Surfrider's Ocean Friendly Gardens Program to help educate homeowners about the impacts that their landscaping choices make on water quality and our local environment. 

Well we aren't the only ones!  El Corazon (aka AgriService Inc.)  in Oceanside is now donating $2 to the local Ocean Friendly Gardens program for every cubic yard of mulch or compost sold!!

Mulch and compost are vital to building healthy living soil in our urban garden environments and are also one of the best ways to conserve soil moisture in your garden!

Check out AgriService Inc's website for more information about the different mulches that they offer!
