Please join Jodie Colón, Compost Educator at the NYC Compost Project in the Bronx, and Caroline Bragdon from the NYC Dept of Health for a workshop on composting and rodent prevention.

Are you passionate about composting but want more from your bin? This Q&A session provides the practical tips, advice, and encouragement you need to take composting to the next level, whether you are just starting out or have been digging in for years. Registered GreenThumb community gardens will be able to request an order of compost, soil, or clean fill for early spring delivery.

The second session is a rat-abatement training focusing on the biology, behavior, and habitat of rodents and how urban gardeners and composters can prevent, detect, and respond to infestations.

  • Session A (10 a.m. - 12 p.m.) Crazy for Composting — Jodie Colón
  • Session B (1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.) Rodent Prevention — Caroline Bragdon
