Spread the news: this Saturday you can buy bags of SkyRocket, a nutrient-rich mulch, in the parking lot at Mariner Square for just $5 per 30 litre bag.
The Strathcona Nordics racers have organized the sale so you won’t even have to get out of your car.
They say you can drive up in the parking lot, place your order for one or more bags, pay, and the Strathcona Nordics will load the bags into your trunk or truck for you.¬†
SkyRocket is a¬†high-nitrogen soil amendment, made of wood chips mixed with biosolids (which are cured, screened, and tested by provincial and federal regulatory bodies) for use in large-scale landscaping and orchards or in residential flower gardens and lawns.
According to the Comox Valley Regional District, SkyRocket “consistently meets or exceeds all of the regulations for a Class A Compost, which is the highest of the three levels that regulate organic matter recycling.”
The sale runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. or until supplies last.
All profits from the event will go to support the Strathcona Nordics cross country skiing race team travel.
