On Friday, October 2nd, Hocking staff took part in North County Community Services' "Edible Garden Project!" We were able to prepare several new garden beds, pick weeds out of existing garden beds, and help out with other various tasks that the garden needed assistance with. The garden is almost entirely dependent on volunteer assistance to maintain it's operations. Hocking recognizes the need for volunteers in our community and is proud to do what we can to help! We plan on getting back out to the garden very soon!
Hocking sponsored a food drive! Food drives are a vital ingredient in their ability to provide food to the more than 18,000 individuals they help serve each month, and they need our support. Donations to North County's Food Bank stay in North County.
When you donate food to North County's Food Bank, you directly impact your community. Donated food is distributed to those in need through their 112 nonprofit partners who serve communities in North County. No one should go hungry!
Phosphorus is an essential nutrient in the production of crops. It is a necessary component of just about every stage of plant growth. It promotes healthier crops and stronger yield potential. However, most of your applied phosphorus will not be available for plant uptake. Phosphorus has a negative charge and bonds with positively charged elements in your soil such as calcium, magnesium, aluminum, and iron. These bonds disable phosphorus, making it unavailable for plant uptake.
