Decomposer ID Workshop

Sunday, September 25, 2:30 pm to 3:15 pm

Included in Garden Admission

Join the NYC Compost Project Hosted by The New York Botanical Garden for a Decomposer ID Workshop. Compost is produced through the hard work of decomposer organisms that break down organic material. Learn about the compost food chain and how this web structure maintains a healthy ecosystem. We’ll discuss chemical and physical decomposition and the three levels of consumers. Don’t miss the “Find the Critter” activity at the end!

This workshop is part of Compost-Pa-Looza, 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! To learn more about, and register for, Compost-Pa-Looza, visit
