Fall Cleanup, Use Mulch to Winterize Your Garden for the Upcoming Winter Months

The best time to apply winter mulch is just after the first hard frost. By putting mulch down at this time, you will help stabilize the temperature of the soil right around freezing.  Applying mulch too soon may delay freezing and encourage swelling and thawing.  Vision Recycling provides affordable ground cover at its Nampa branch. Ask Roy!

Warm soil means organisms stay active longer into the cold season, improving your soil. Mulching is one of the best lines of defense for perennial plants against chilling temperatures. This can also prevent the repeated freezing and thawing of soil that causes plants to heave out of the ground.

Association of Compost Producers

On Wednesday May 2nd members of the Association of Compost Producers traveled to our state’s capital to meet with assembly people and senators to “Spread The Gospel” about financial allocations for Compost and Organics diversion.  Vision’s Andrew Tuckman and Adan Rodriguez joined others to inform state politicians about the need for Organics infrastructure including new facilities and developing markets around the state of California. “We’re doing our part, now we need California to step up even further to provide what is necessary for achieving its goals” said Dan Noble of the ACP. The message was heard throughout the halls of the capital building loud & clear. Members of the group had little, round compost stickers on their lapels telling anyone who would listen that the governor must allocate more money if we are really going to get serious about composting. Our soil’s health, pending landfill closures, the local crops, greenhouse gas emissions, storm water and our communities depend on it.

It is celebrated nationwide and in other countries each year during the first full week of May.

The goal of the program is to raise the awareness of the public regarding the benefits of using compost to improve or maintain high quality soil, to grow healthy plants, reduce the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improve water quality and protect the environment. Each year, a theme is chosen and this year it is Cool The Climate.  Vision Recycling will be offering discounts on compost at participating stores during the first week of May.
