The goal of the program is to raise the awareness of the public regarding the benefits of using compost to improve or maintain high-quality soil, to grow healthy plants, reduce the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improve water quality and protect the environment.
The 2019 ICAW theme“Cool the Climate - Compost!” recognizes the connection between soil health and the climate. Soil plays an important role in our environment. Healthy soil is at the heart of planetary, agricultural and human health. This year’s theme highlights that soil management practices with compost is key to soil health and migrating climate change. By composting, we return nutrients to the soil, help capture carbon from the atmosphere, resist drought and disease and provide fresh air.
