Free Mulch and Compost: New Hours and Locations  

Bring your own tools and containers and head over to the Waterwise Community Center!

If you are a community group such as Boy Scouts, a community garden, school, or other group and are working on a project, you may arrange to pick up mulch on another day. Please contact us for scheduling.

Self-Serve Free Mulch

Our giveaway has been moved to the north end of our main parking lot and will be available 7 days a week from 6 am - 8 pm until supplies last on a first-come, first-serve basis. Masks are required and cones will be placed to ensure that visitors are more than 6 feet apart. 

This is a self-serve event: You will load your own containers and vehicle. Bring your own tools and containers. A pitchfork and sturdy containers are recommended.

Mulch is a mix of ground local tree trimmings. Mulch helps conserve water by reducing evaporation, allowing water to be held in the soil for longer. It also helps build soil structure, inhibits weed growth, and much more. All mulch is donated by our friends at Green Army. This mixed mulch contributes to improving soil more than store bought bark or dyed mulch. Mulch is applied as a layer on top of the soil and never mixed into the soil.
