Mulch For The People!
The first distribution was on June 19, and a quick visit confirmed the mulch to be of good quality–tree wood shredded small without many leaves. After a week, the original pile had been reduced to about a tenth its original size. The nine-tenths taken are clear evidence of a demand, previously unmet. Thank you, City of Pasadena!
If you haven't gotten yours yet, zip on over before it's gone! Put a thick layer around established plants to reduce evaporation, discourage weeds, attract earthworms and microbes to improve soil and discourage El Niño runoff.
The last scheduled mulch drop for 2015 at Victory Park will be on October 9th and at Robinson Park on October 23rd. If you want mulch provided during winter too, do contact your Pasadena City Council Member and let them know!
