Community Compost Build @ Earth Matter

hosted by Earth Matter NY

Monday, March 4, 2019

Earth Matter NY Compost Learning Center
10 South St
New York, NY 10004 United States


This event is part of Circular City Week.

Join us to build a compost windrow! We will combine 14,000 lbs of neighborhood food scraps with an equal amount of Governors Island yard waste. Learn about how we construct an aerated static (ASP) system. No experience necessary, but dress warmly and wear water resistant clothing and boots.

Volunteers help empty bins of food scraps, remove contaminants (plastics and other non-compostable items), and chop open whole foods to let in microbes.

You would arrive on the 9 am ferry and return to Manhattan on the 12:30 pm ferry.
