The Possibilities are Endless … Compost!


Mark your calendars, May 6-12 is International Compost Awareness Week. This year’s theme is “The Possibilities are Endless … Compost!” Make what you will of it.


The U.S. Composting Council has these suggestions for celebrating:

Successful promotions in past years have included:

  • Compost sales – many communities offered compost for sale with the days proceeds going to selected local charities
  • Openings and tours of composting demonstration gardens as well as centralized composting facilities
  • Tree planting ceremonies using compost to prepare the soil for planting
  • The setting up of a “Grow A Row” garden, using compost to prepare the soil, with the fall harvest being donated to the local food bank
  • Backyard composting training sessions, offered for residents as well as through school visits
  • A “Compost Tea Party” where residents were invited to learn about composting including how to use compost and make Compost Tea?
  • Talks by well-known gardening experts on gardening experts on gardening and the use of compost
  • TV & radio shows as well as newspaper articles on gardening and the use of compost as well as how to compost?
