Farm & Garden Work Days: NYC Compost Project

Saturday, October 21, 2017

10:00 a.m.12:00 p.m.

This event repeats on the 3rd Saturday of every month between 8/19/2017 and 12/27/2017.

Cultivate an intimate understanding of the interconnections between soil, plants, and human health by working directly with the land. We’ll be getting our hands and knees dirty with tasks that include soil care, weeding, planting, bed preparation, composting, etc. Bring a water bottle, sun hat, closed-toed shoes, and wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.

Registration is requested.

First Wednesday of the month: Meet at Heritage Farm 
Third Saturday of the month: Meet at Compost Demonstration Garden (next to Heritage Farm)

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.
