Troop 1000 Mulch Sale
NOTE: We are very close to selling out. If we can't fill your order, we'll refund it.
We're Selling Mulch Again in 2023
If you need mulch and want to support Troop 1000, please order a few bags or even an entire pallet.
We hope to deliver on Saturday, March 25, 2023 (rain date: March 26th ).
100% of the profits will help support the boys as they explore the outdoors, fish, hike, learn citizenship and go to summer camp. We've got a big schedule of trips exploring the outdoors. Right now the boys are planning a big scuba trip this summer to Seabase in the Florida Keys. Our trips to Philmont Scout Reservation in New Mexico over the last few years have been magnificent. We're also preparing for a great week of swimming, hiking, exploring and merit badge work at summer camp at Broadcreek up on the shores of the Susquehanna. We say "thank you" to everyone who bought last year!
(Bankruptcy aside: the Troop's finances are entirely separate from the local council and the National organization. 100% of the funds go to lower the price for camping so boys can participate. That is to say that the money goes for either food, transportation to camp sites or camp fees. The Troop is not party to the bankruptcy and is only affected indirectly by higher prices for insurance and fees from the National organization.)
Several years ago, we switched to slightly smaller bags that hold 2 cubic feet of high-quality, shredded hardwood mulch that is dark chocolate brown and covers about 10-12 square feet at a depth of about 2 to 3 inches. In years past, we delivered 3cf bags but we switched to 2cf bags in 2021 because they're easier for everyone to move.
Delivery is limited to Homeland, Guilford, Roland Park, Tuxedo Park and the Orchards. Mulch will be delivered to the front curb unless there is a fork-lift accessible area elsewhere.
Orders must be received by March 21st. We reserve the right to stop taking orders when we reach our limit. We may also have extra mulch available on Saturday for drive ups or last minute orders but we won't know until that day.
Please make checks payable to Troop 1000.
