>Turn & Learn Compost Work Day (NYC Compost Project)

Tuesday, January 22, 2019

1:00 p.m.3:00 p.m.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

The best way to learn about compost is to make it, and attending our Turn & Learn will make you a pro. Bring a water bottle and wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. If you help us make compost, you can take home compost. Please bring your own container. 

Please note this is a volunteer event and not a pick-up event. You must volunteer at the work day to receive compost. Supplies may be limited.

Registration is strongly recommended. Registration requested online.

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.
