Join us at the GoGreen! Greenpoint  Festival in McCarren Park tomorrow, Saturday, May 18 from 11am to 5pm!  Our set-up will be near the entrance to the pool.

Stop by and let us know what you like about composting and what could go better.  Have been dropping off at the Greenmarket lately – or just missed their collection by a few minutes?  Want more drop-off opportunities?  Tell us where and when you’d like to see those!

Oh and:  We will have some compost to give away!  Feed your tomato plants, people!

Hello composters!

We are coming back out of the woodwork for a fun educational event this weekend. In partnership with GrowNYC and the Newtown Creek Alliance Compost Workgroup, we will be diverting part of the Saturday haul from the Greenmarket compost collection in McCarren and mixing up a special batch of compost at our site.

Come learn about existing citywide compost initiatives!
Come learn about compost cooking!
Come get some hands-on experience at North Brooklyn Compost Project!
