Compost Awareness Week

International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry. It’s celebrated each year in the first full week of May. Although Compost Awareness Week may look different for each of us this year, collectively we can still make small changes in our backyards through composting that will have lasting impacts on our environment.

2022 Compost Awareness Week
May 1-7

Join us for a week full of online workshops and education promoting the benefits of composting and the environmental importance of diverting organic waste from our landfills.

The theme for ICAW, “Recipe for Regeneration: Compost”, highlights the importance of compost to improve the health of our soils. When added to our gardens, farmlands and yards, compost, feeds our soil. When we feed our soil we feed microbes in the soil which in turn enrich the quality of our soils. Healthy soils grow healthy crops and create a healther environement as well as protect it. Whether small or large in scale, composting offers each of us a responsible way to manage our organic waste.

We encourage you to visit us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram during the week for tips and information to support composting at home.
