It's International #Compost Week! Love your scraps, love your worms and love your #garden!

By diverting organic materials from landfills, states in Region 7 not only reduce waste, but they expand the market for recycled materials and improve soil conditions. Missouri, Kansas and Iowa provide users with detailed instructions for composting, mulching and grasscycling.
