International Composting Awareness Week May 6 - 12, 2007. A time to `Spread the Compost` to support organics recovery, composting and the use of compost
Holbrook, New York -- Be a part of the largest environmental education event for composting. The U.S. Composting Council officially invites you to join in celebrating International Compost Awareness Week, May 6-12, 2007. Celebrated across the United States, Canada, UK and Europe, composting advocates are encouraging everyone to Compost! This year's national poster theme, 'The Possibilities Are Endless - Compost!' is a great way to get the message out. All types of composting from backyard to large-scale, community-wide composting are promoted during this week.
Compost Awareness Week is a fun and educational week of events that offers an opportunity to learn more about the many benefits of composting while enjoying interactive activities. To bring positive attention to the possibilities that composting can provide to communities, ICAW was designed to rally composting advocates and build awareness in their communities. Compost discussions, State ICAW proclamations, promotions with local dealers and landscape supply stores, informal lectures by well-known gardening experts, backyard composting bin promotions and urban gardening programs are just some of the many events that are held.
