International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry. It is celebrated nationwide and in other countries each year during the first full week of May. The goal of ICAW is to work together to raise public awareness on why we all should be composting our organics recycling and using compost.

One of Liberty Prairie’s longest running programs is our Community Garden. We began composting on-site this year and are in the process of building out a compost demonstration site. During your visit, you have the opportunity to

  • Learn about community compositing and our plans for the compost demonstration site.
  • Find out how we use compost on the farm.
  • Explore the Community Garden.

Be sure to stroll across the street to the Prairie Crossing Conservation Farm for our Spring Plant Sale and Farm Festival, while you’re here!
