‘Mulch Magic’ giveaway at Nevada County Fairgrounds

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 fourth annual Mulch Magic Giveaway will be held from 7-11 a.m., Saturday, May 11 at the Nevada County Fairgrounds, Gate 8 off Brighton Street.

Nearly 150 cubic yards of shredded cedar will be handed out free on a first-come first-served basis, courtesy of Nevada Irrigation District and sponsors Nevada County Resource Conservation District and the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

The event starts at 7 a.m. at the Fairground’s Gate 8, and goes until 11 a.m., or while supplies last.



The mulch is provided in bulk and will require a truck. This is a “self-load” event; participants are asked to provide their own shovels, containers and tarps to cover the loads. For those needing assistance, local Boy and Eagle Scouts will be available to help load mulch into vehicles.

The limit is 1 cubic yard of mulch (enough to fill a pick-up truck) per vehicle. The material is for personal use only; not for resale or commercial use.
