Happy International Compost Awareness Week

Happy International Compost Awareness Week -- the best holiday you've never heard of, here to help us celebrate our connection to soil and food! Adding compost to soil feeds the biodiverse "soil sponge" that we rely on for life on land. Healthy soil filters water, stores carbon, and produces nutrient-dense food.

Recycling your food scraps, leaves, yard waste, and garden debris into compost is simple. Learn how with resources from ACSWMD, including free compost workshopscomposting instructions, and composting supplies.

And, join in the Composting Association of Vermont's week-long series of events celebrating compost, soil, and organics recycling.
