NYC Parks GreenThumb and the NYC Compost Project Hosted by Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden will join Snug Harbor’s Heritage Farm, Horticulture department, Service department, and Education department will reconnect with Staten Island gardeners this winter to prepare for a reinvigorating spring and share how we plan to serve our community this growing season.
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 produce and use compost locally.
NYC Compost Project programs are carried out by teams of DSNY-funded staff at seven partner organizations: Big Reuse, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Earth Matter NY, LES Ecology Center, The New York Botanical Garden, Queens Botanical Garden, and Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden.
