DONATED COMPOST ENRICHES LOCAL SCHOOL GARDENS



Filling up our trusty HB trailer with compost for delivery to local schools

Over the past two weeks, Los Berros Elementary in Lompoc along with Orcutt Jr. High, Lakeview Jr. High, and the Boys & Girls Club in Santa Maria, have received help for their parched soil in the form of compost and topsoil.  

Engel & Gray, Inc. has donated more than 430 cubic feet of compost and 375 cubic feet of topsoil to these schools in an effort to counteract effects of California's high temps and drought conditions. Adding organic matter in the form of compost and topsoil helps improve and protect valuable soil and most importantly, helps conserve valuable water resources.

LAWN & GARDEN EVENT HAS PUT COMPOST (AND LIFE) BACK INTO LOCAL GARDENS



May 13, 2017: Engel & Gray, Inc. and Harvest Blend Compost partnered with the City of Santa Maria to celebrate International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) @ Mussell Senior Center and Community Garden. The focus of this year’s event was “Healthy Soil. Healthy Plants”. Bob Engel, Jim Gill, and NY Times Best Selling Author, Billy Goodnick, presented educational and entertaining info on soil health, vegetable transplant success, and choosing the "Right Plant, Right Place" for successful landscaping. Following a free raffle, Billy’s books, "YARDS - Turn Any Garden Space into the Garden of your Dreams", were sold and (graciously) signed

Happy compost customer

Plantel Nurseries generously donated nearly 1,000 vegetable seedlings to this event. Residents lined up to fill their bags with broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, lettuces and tomatoes, among other fresh veggies. Summer gardens will be extra tasty this year!
 Free Harvest Blend Compost was the grand finale. Once the tarp was removed, eager gardeners dug into the rolloff of compost, loading it into bins, wheelbarrows and in one case, a truck bed. By the end of the day, nearly 540 cubic feet of fresh, locally produced Harvest Blend Compost had been wheeled, carried and/or trucked to homes and gardens

HELP US KEEP THE GREEN CLEAN

The success of Santa Maria’s curbside Green Waste collection service depends on a clean waste stream. That means it's up to us to KEEP the GREEN CLEAN - NO glass, metal or plastic in Green Waste bins.

Yard materials collected from this program are diverted from the landfill and delivered to Engel & Gray Regional Compost Facility. There they are transformed into nutrient rich Harvest Blend Compost products, ready to build healthy soil, help conserve water (possibly reducing monthly water bill), and grow strong, healthy trees and plants.

WHAT CAN & CANNOT GO IN THE GREEN WASTE CONTAINER -

ACCEPTABLE: leaves, fallen fruit, grass clippings, weeds, plant prunings, small branches, clean wood, plants with little soil.

NON-ACCEPTABLE: plastic bags, glass, paper, metal, trash, animal waste, diapers, palm or yucca trimmings, painted/glued/or pressure treated wood, rocks, gravel, dirt, asphalt, cement, paint, oil, liquids, hazardous materials.

By keeping plastic bags and trash out you’re keeping the Green Material clean, which helps us make Quality Harvest Blend Compost. Naturally!
