What Do You Know About Compost?

Did you know this week is International Compost Awareness Week? If you’re not already composting, there’s no better time to start! Kiss the Ground’s new video lays out the critical problem of food waste decomposing in landfills and generating greenhouse gas, and presents an easy alternative: composting. Did you know compost adds nutrients to the soil, making food grown in that soil more nutritious? It also helps soil retain water, so crops that are treated with compost need less water to grow. The list of benefits goes on, but it’s more fun to let the advocates in the following video, many of whom you will likely recognize, present the case. Without further ado, please see “The Compost Story,” and join the Compost Challenge.
