May 29, 2023 – Learn About Composting Day

Harness the power of worms and turn your organic waste into rich compost for your garden. This is the day to raise awareness of how we can make our planet a little better with the materials that are naturally available. Composting helps repurpose organic waste materials at the same time that it provides economic and ecological benefits when used to help grow plants, whether in gardens, for landscaping or for farming.
