Do you know about the magic of mulch? Adding a layer of mulch to your gardens and landscapes has so many benefits, including improved soil health, weed suppression, water conservation, reduced runoff, and erosion control.
Pickup your own free mulch on April 30th at Keiser Park. Mulch will be located on the dirt road across from the south baseball fields. Mulch will be available all day on a self-serve basis until supplies last.
Also be sure to check out the free Compost giveaway, hosted by WeAct, one day before on April 29th 9AM-12PM at Keiser Park.
Mulch can save water by suppressing weeds, increasing infiltration and soil water-holding capacity, moderating temperature, and reducing evaporation. Increased water capacity means less runoff making it to our creeks. Not only that, but mulch also creates a protective layer over the soil leading to less erosion.
