This week is dedicated to celebrating composting and encouraging others to get involved. Join us and other organizations around the world in celebrating composting and its many benefits. Composting is one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to make a positive impact on our planet! This year’s theme is “For Healthier Soil, Healthier Food…Compost!” 🌱

Did you know that 14% of households in Manitoba are food insecure? Composting is not only better for the environment because you can recycle organics and lower greenhouse gas emissions, but composting helps support food security by creating healthier soil and higher produce yields!
