Since GrowNYC now offers a year-round drop off for the public at the Greenmarket, we have changed how we operate. Now we work directly with organizations and institutions to divert organics that would otherwise end up on the curb. We still have volunteer opportunities and if you are interested, you can contact Tanya at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers are welcome to take finished compost home throughout the year for their personal use and to feed city trees. Also, we want to know how far our garbage can go! We have heard around the pile about the fabulous work that our compost does after you take it away…our compost has helped sprout a tree nursery in a Williamsburg art studio, a food garden for a local soup kitchen, an art project for East River State Park, a lettuce farm on North 11th Street…and while we hate to brag (ha!), we do love to hear about your work beyond the pile. Will you send in photos and stories of the stuff you’ve started with NBCP compost? We will feature it here on the website!
