Learn about soil health, urban farming, and waste diversion in the big city. We will be outside getting dirty and doing physical work. Wear clothes you do not mind getting dirty and bring a water bottle. This event will happen rain or shine.
The NYC Compost Project, created by the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) in 1993, works to reduce waste in NYC and rebuild NYC’s soil by providing New Yorkers with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to produce and use compost locally. NYC Compost Project programs and staff are funded and managed through the DSNY Bureau of Recycling and Sustainability (BRS) in partnership with host institutions.
This program is also made possible in part with funding provided by the NYC Service Civic Impact capacity building grant.
