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!

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!

See below for info about the joint committee meeting – scheduled for May
7, 2012 – about the Demapping on Union Street between Driggs and N
12 Street. As users of this corner of the McCarren Park, it is
important that we are part of the discussion. Our community leaders
don’t always know the details of an area like locals like we do!
Thanks to Christine from the McCarren Park Dog Run for the 411!
Thanks to member-at-large Matt Decker, NBCP was invited to Yale School of Forestry to give a talk about our work! Then they built tumblers! Here is a slideshow that Kate gave at the gathering:
