In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, Pulaski County is giving away free mulch until 4 p.m. on Friday, April 21, or until supplies last. Free mulch will also be available Saturday, April 22 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Mulch has numerous benefits for gardening, ranging from conserving moisture to suppressing weeds. An individual bag of mulch can cost several dollars, so a free truck-bed full can be a major cost-saver for any gardener. 


The giveaway is taking place at the old Smoky Hollow building at 3200 Woodrow Street in Little Rock, off W Roosevelt Rd. The organizers of the event have asked that you look for the signs and enter on Brown Street.
