Turn & Learn Compost Work Day (NYC Compost Project)
Feb 26 @ 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

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, wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. If you help us make compost, you can take 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.

December 8 | January 12, 22 | February 9, 26 | 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Compost Demonstration Site
Free admission | Registration requested HERE

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.
