The 3rd Annual Mulch Magic Giveaway is a success!

June 6, 2018

Residents with trucks lined up before 7 am to load free shred2018-mulch-041ded redwood mulch during NID’s annual Mulch Magic Giveaway on June 2. By 12:30 pm, all of the piles of mulch – a total of 150 cubic yards – were gone!

In its third year, this year the giveaway had a new format – people collected the mulch on a first-come first-served basis at the Nevada County Fairgrounds instead of a voucher system to be redeemed at local suppliers.

The Mulch Magic Giveaway is part of NID’s continuing efforts to promote conscientious water use and conservation. Mulch is a great tool to help save water in gardening and landscaping. Two or three inches of mulch helps retain water keeping the soil moist for longer periods of time.

The popular event is sponsored by NID, the Nevada County Resource Conservation District (NCRCD) and the Nevada County Fairgrounds.
