On May 8, Laurel Valley Soils in Landenberg served as the site for the national kick-off for International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW), held from May 7-13. ICAW is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry, and is celebrated nationwide and in other countries each year to raise public awareness on the benefits of recycling organics and increased compost use.
