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 tools. Product must be tarped or contained.

We will load any standard pick-up truck or small trailer (approx. 1-2 cubic yds) for a fee of $10/load. 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.

We had a great turn out at our Free Product Giveaway Saturday on July 10th!

Our Next “Free Product Giveaway Saturday” is August 14, 2021 from 7 am to 1:30 pm.

Our featured product for the Free Product Giveaway Saturday in August will be our Monkey Hair Mulch!

All guests must comply with our SPVS Public Event Safety Guidelines in the attachment below.

Featured Product for August


Monkey Hair Mulch

Our Monkey Hair Mulch is fully composted from locally sourced materials. This long lasting mulch has a rich brown color and is free of weed seeds. It is great for erosion control and it looks really nice in the garden, too! Check out the pictures below.

Check out the CalRecycle report on the use of hardwood and compost mulching around avocados and citrus. This document provides results from a multi-year study on the value of using both non-composted and composted landscape trimmings to support young tree development, particularly for root rot disease suppression in avocados.

For more information on the benefits of using mulch, check out Dr. K’s Blog Post and this a great article by Dr. Jim Downer of UCCE Ventura, “Benefits of Mulch”.
