Learn how to make a little compost go a long way! We’ll introduce you to the many easy ways to support soil life and plant health with compost. Spring is a great time to jump start soil activity with an injection of microorganisms that build soil structure and convert locked soil nutrients into plant-accessible food. You will walk away confident in your ability to make and apply a simple compost extract solution with just a handful of compost.
The NYC Compost Project, created by the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) in 1993, works to rebuild NYC’s soils by providing New Yorkers with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to make and use compost locally. NYC Compost Project programs are implemented by DSNY-funded teams at seven host organizations, including Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Big Reuse, Earth Matter NY, Lower East Side Ecology Center, Queens Botanical Garden, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, and The New York Botanical Garden.
