ICAW 2013 kicks off TODAY – May 6 through May 12
Enjoy all that International Compost Awareness Week has to offer; find an ICAW event in your area or host one to celebrate Compost: Nature’s Way to Grow! One way to kick off ICAW festivities is to sign-up for the USCC Million Tomato Compost Campaign, which connects community gardens, composters, chefs and food banks in an effort to build healthy soil, grow healthy food, and foster healthy communities.
This year’s winning ICAW design by Jennifer Tignani, an 11th grader from Westland, MI, is available on t-shirts, calendars, and posters - click here to visit the USCC store for more details. Only while supplies last!!
