Free Product Giveaway Saturday!
Second Saturday of the Month
Don’t miss out…it only happens once a month!
San Pasqual Valley Soils loves to donate back to our community. Each month, only on the second Saturday of the month, we will offer a single product of our choosing for free to the public. We invite you to come and load up whatever amount you need for your own benefit. Free if self-loaded into your vehicle using your own containers and tools. Product must be tarped in trucks or contained.
We will load any standard pick-up truck or small trailer (approx. 1-2 cubic yards) for a fee of $10/load (cash only during event). Guests that would like larger quantities must self-load it manually or purchase the material at our standard wholesale price which includes loading at no additional cost. Delivery of purchased material is available for a fee throughout San Diego county by San Pasqual Valley Soils trucks.
Our Next Free Product Giveaway Saturday will be October 14, 2023 from 7 am to 1:30 pm, weather permitting.
Event may be canceled due to rain or low product inventory.
The featured product for October is our Valley’s Best Compost®.
All guests must comply with our SPVS Public Event Safety Guidelines in the attachment below.
Enter yard, stay in your car and drive up to an attendant to check in and get directions on where to go to pick up your compost (no need to call in advance). San Diego County is no longer mandating masks, but you are welcome to wear them at our facility. Thank you!
Thank you for the wonderful response to our Free Product Giveaways!
