Community Compost Build

  • Earth Matter Governors Island New York, NY USA (map)

Join NYC Compost Project hosted by Earth Matter on Governors Island for a Community Compost Build! They will combine 15,000 lbs of neighborhood food scraps from GrowNYC with an equal amount of (Governors Island) yard waste. No experience necessary, but closed-toe shoes are required. Volunteers help empty bins of food scraps, remove contaminants (plastics and other non-compostable items), and chop open whole foods to let in microbes.
