Compost Workshop | Saturday Open House (Free)

  • Brooklyn Grange 37-18 Northern Boulevard Long Island City, NY, 11101 United States (map)

Event Description:
NYC Compost Project hosted by Queens Botanical Garden will lead a hands-on compost workshop up on our roof during this Saturday Open House! Not sure what to do with all those kitchens scraps? Is your compost system at home getting smelly and not producing the nutrient rich soil you had hoped for? Have you ever wondered how compost is made? Come join us and learn from Master Composters what should and should not go into compost and how to incorporate it properly to create nutrient rich results!

This event is part of our weekly Open House. Every Saturday May through October we host an open house at our Flagship farm in Long Island City, Queens. There's no need to register in advance and no charge–just come on by between 11am and 4pm, and you can visit the chickens, buy some farm-fresh produce, get your hands dirty alongside our farm team, or simply enjoy the fresh air! Families be sure to visit on a Family Farm Day, the third Saturday of every month, when City Growers hosts its FREE family-friendly workshops and children’s activities! 

Please note: RSVPs are now closed. If you submitted an RSVP for this event, please know that it does NOT guarantee participation.
