International Compost Awareness Week 6-12 May 2007

Dig In! Support Compost Awareness Week

Participate - Annual International Compost Awareness Week May 6, 2007 to May 12, 2007

This year's theme is "The Possibilities are Endless ... Compost!"

For more info, go to:

Compost and more compost means more soil carbon - better soil health; sequestrated carbon in soil means less greenhouse gases; compost adds to soil structure, positively impacts improved soil moisture storage, reduces evaporation from soil..............the possibilities are endless!

Critically important in Australia with our generally poor ancient soils - both structurally and in mineral composition. Also have a look at the Compost Australia website.

Compost adds to shallow carbon storage, not usually to deep storage of carbon which normally comes from plant root direct breakdown in the soil.

BUT..............compost! Its a verb AND a noun.
