More creatures live in the soil than any other environment on Earth! Go with the NYC Compost Project, hosted by Snug Harbor, on a soil organism safari and gain a better understanding of what the soil ecosystem looks like and how soil biodiversity is crucial for health. This workshop will introduce you to fascinating facts and traditional techniques that will help you support soil life in your own garden or farm.

Registration requested.

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.
