Homemade compost is great for the garden and diverts tonnes of food waste from landfill.
Now Garden Organic is calling for people to put their passion for compost on paper for its poster competition to urge more of us to make our own for Compost Awareness Week Saturday 1 – 7 May 2011.
Open to everyone, children and adults, the Garden Organic ‘Celebrate Compost’ poster competition will raise awareness and celebrate everything there is to know about the lovely, crumbly brown stuff.
Garden Organic’s, Jane Griffiths, said, “Our network of Master Composters promote home compost at every opportunity and it was one of them, Rodney Weston, that came up with the ‘Celebrate Compost’ idea. With this competition we want to see people’s inventive, creative and eye-catching ideas for promoting compost and we also want to see entries that can help other people understand the importance of home composting for the environment, and for our gardens.”
The competition winner can look forward to an exciting eco prize and the winning ‘Celebrate Compost’ poster will also be displayed on the Garden Organic, Community Composting Network and Recycle Now website during Compost Awareness Week 1 – 7 May 2011. Garden Organic’s network of over 500 Master Composters will also use the poster design at community event.
