Get inspired to make compost! Join us for a day at the Garden aimed to spotlight Queens composting and empower the community to learn, network, and have fun with all things soil health! Take part in the creative workshops, community networking tables, activity tables, compost demonstrations, interactive performances, and farm tours. Together we will support a sustainable solution by revitalizing NYC soils and recycling food waste to the “black gold” known as compost. Compost-Pa-Looza is a family friendly event that will take place rain or shine. Stay tuned for a schedule of activities (subject to change).
