Nevada Irrigation District’s Annual Mulch Magic Giveaway was a huge success! Nearly 120 residents took away about 290 cubic yards of free mulch on May 14. It was the largest turn-out in the five years of the event, which is part of the District’s continuing efforts to promote conscientious water use and conservation.
The mulch was handed out free on a first-come first-served basis at the Nevada County Fairgrounds on May 14. As a “self-load” event, participants shoveled the mulch into their vehicles. Also, local Boy and Eagle Scouts were available to help load.
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.
NID purchased the mulch and teamed with sponsor Nevada County Fairgrounds.
