• Agromin Donates Bags of Potting Soil To Habitat For Humanity's Orange County "ReStore" - Friday, April 30, 2010 at
  • Habitat For Humanity received a donation of 120 bags (two tons) of outdoor potting soil for its Orange County "ReStores" from Agromin, a green materials recycling company and premium soil manufacturer.

    Habitat for Humanity of Orange County's Santa Ana and Garden Grove ReStores sell recycled and reusable home and construction materials including furniture, artwork, appliances, cabinets and countertops. Proceeds from the sales of the items help support Habitat for Humanity homebuilding projects throughout Orange County.

    “We are so grateful for this donation from Agromin,” said Karen Thoms, director of ReStores, Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. “Donations like this help us fulfill our mission of transforming lives and communities by helping families fix up their yards with affordable lawn and garden items from the Habitat OC ReStores. It fits into our recycle, reuse philosophy.”

    Agromin potting soil is made from green materials (grass clippings, leaves, trees trimmings) that are cleaned, chopped and naturally composted using a safe, organic and scientific system. The company receives and processes more than 365,000 tons of urban wood and green waste each year and produces more than 200 different kinds of soil products for farmers, landscapers and consumers.

    Agromin will also provide the top dressing and mulch for Habitat home construction projects in Fullerton and San Juan Capistrano.
