MulchFest 2015 Stewardship Event

Help care for young street trees during MulchFest 2015!

Mulchfest 2014

On Saturday, January 10th and Sunday, January 11th, NYC Parks will host the annual MulchFest from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. each day at locations citywide. Participants will bring their holiday tree to one of over 80 designated parks to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city or your own garden!

MillionTreesNYC is looking for volunteers to help on Saturday, January 10 by spreading mulch generated during this event around young street tree beds to help insulate these trees from the cold weather, retain moisture, and provide a decorative addition to neighborhood blocks. You can also pick up bags of mulch to take home with you and use on the trees on your street.

ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 2015   11:00am – 1:00pm

Learn how to care for street trees near park chipping locations!
