Opening Day – Saturday, May 15th!
That’s right, the day you’ve been so eagerly waiting for is just around the corner ! The North Brooklyn Compost Project will start accepting your household food scraps on Saturday, May 15th.

Volunteer Hours:
However, before we get to the 15th, we need your muscles to get the site ready for the season. Please use our handy doodle calendar to sign up for a volunteer shift: http://www.doodle.com/k8yknk34gt3at3nr

Compost Barrel Building Workshop:
If you are interested in transforming from a mere trash depositor to seasoned composter join NBCP core member Matt in at a compost barrel building workshop this Saturday. We’ll be creating three new barrels for our site!

“The workshop will start at 12:45 at Build It Green NYC – 317 26th Ave, Astoria. We’ll probably go until around 3:30. There will be a tour of Two Coves Garden starting at 12 if anybody wants to join – we’ll walk over to Build it Green from there.

It would be helpful if you could bring or borrow an adjustable wrench and a cordless drill. Looks like it could rain so dress appropriately for the garden tour.”

Your Compost=Art
NPBC’s compost is part of the Tree of Life, a sculpture featured in the 2010 Williamsburg Waterfront Sculpture Show in the East River Park. Read on for more info here http://www.uaprojects.org/blog

The show will be up through June 6th and this Saturday night there is an opening party from 6-8 p.m. at the UAP gallery at 136 Wythe Avenue (bet. N8 and N9)

See ya at the pile!
