COMPOST BUILD with GROWNYC
Sunday, March 5, 2017

10:30 am2:00 pm
Curious about what happens to the food scraps collected at NYC Greenmarkets? Come out to the farm and see first-hand how this natural resource can be used in making a compost windrow pile. Together with GrowNYC's Zero Waste Program, we'll utilize over 5,000 pounds of food waste, wood chips, and leaves to build a compost pile, which will eventually decompose into the natural fertilizer we use on our growing fields.

 

No experience necessary to participate, just wear sturdy shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty and that will keep you warm. Bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated and some snacks. This event is rain or shine or snow, and is geared towards adults.

 

This event is FREE;  Weather permitting
