Composting awareness week

From April 27 – May 3, 2003 The Composting Council of Canada is coordinating Composting Awareness Week. This year’s theme, "How does your garden grow?" will feature a variety of educational community activities to encourage composting initiatives in gardens across the country.

The Composting Council of Canada is a national non-profit, member-driven organization with a charter to advocate and advance composting and compost usage. It serves as the central resource and network for the composting industry in Canada and, through its members, contributes to the environmental sustainability of the communities in which they operate.

Sponsors of this week include: Norseman Plastics, Starbucks Coffee Company, Miller Composting Group, Glad, Weall & Cullen, Procter & Gamble, All Treat Farms, Canadian Restaurant and Food Services Association, and Solid Waste & Recycling magazine.
