A Week of Composting

This clip art is from the American Compost website, I realize, but it is so beautiful I'm going to use it anyways.

 It's Official Composting Week. Sounds a little odd, doesn't it? It's sort of like saying "Happy Battery Recycling Day!" Nevertheless, I'm going to use this as a personal platform to encourage everyone to start a compost in their backyard.

That's right, use this Official Week as your personal invitation to start composting. It's easy, it gives you free amendments for your garden (amendments you know the origins of), and it reduces your landfill contributions. All good and important things to consider these days.

Happy Composting. Now get out there and start your own compost. It's as easy as...well, as easy as this.

I think Official Composting Week is a terrific idea! We composted for years, the old-fashioned way, and it worked great. Sadly, no garden this year.
