The NYC Compost Project Hosted by LES Ecology Center and Pleasant Village Community Garden are looking for volunteers to help beautify street trees. This street tree care activity is part of the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) outreach series on the new curbside organics collection program.

Volunteers will help remove weeds and litter as well as apply DSNY compost - made from NYC food scraps - to street tree beds. Tools and gloves will be provided. Volunteers should wear closed-toed shoes, a hat, and sunscreen, and bring a water bottle. Clothes that can get dirty are recommended.

Volunteers are expected to meet at Pleasant Village Community Garden at 9:00 a.m. The tree care activity will go on until noon.

To volunteer please register at bit.ly/CompostVolunteer.
