One event on Saturday, March 28, 2020 at 1:30 pm


Out of an abundance of caution and given recent developments regarding the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), we are canceling this event in an effort to safeguard our guests, staff, and volunteers.

The NYC Compost Project Hosted by Queens Botanical Garden is giving away FREE compost! Although staff will be present to assist, please come prepared to fill and carry out your own bags. We will provide shovels and empty 7.5 gallon sandbags. The compost is made from residential food scraps collected locally and processed at QBG. Limit of 5 bags per registrant. This event takes place in QBG’s Parking Garden at 42-80 Crommelin Street, Flushing, NY.

If you are interested in larger volumes of compost, please contact us at [email protected] or 718.539.5296.

FREE. Registration required. Please note you will not be given compost if you have not registered for this event.

There are two sessions that you can register for: 9:30 to 11:30am and 1:30 to 3:30pm. Only one session registration is allowed per household; multiple-session registration will result in cancellation of one registration.
