Compost Awareness Week in Atlanta at the DeKalb Farmers Market

Your Dekalb Farmer’s Market in Decatur invites you out for a Compost Awareness Week Event!

  • When: May 9th, 2009 from 9:00am – 1:00pm
  • Where: 3000 E. Ponce de Leon Ave., Decatur, GA 30030

Keep DeKalb Beautiful, in partnership with DeKalb County Extension Service and their Master Gardener Program, will host a compost demonstration workshop to celebrate International Compost Awareness Week. Composting transforms landscape trimmings, fruit and vegetable scraps into a dark, crumbly, sweet-smelling soil amendment. This practice saves landfill space, conserves natural resources, and improves soil quality. Event attendees can receive Master Gardener advice, free compost bins, vegetable transplants, and enter a drawing to receive a rain barrel! For more information, call 404-371-2654 or email
