VC Star: Hannah-Beth Jackson names Agromin top small business in her district

May 24, 2013

With its commitment to diverting organic waste from landfills, using backyard mulch, clippings and other plant materials that people throw away to make more than 200 soil amendments, Ventura County-based Agromin is a great example of the future of small businesses, according to state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson.

To honor Agromin, Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, named it the Small Business of the Year for the 19th Senate District.

“This is a small but pioneering business,” Jackson said. “I think it’s a terrific example right here in our community of a small business. Small businesses are the backbone of our community.”
