NYC COMPOST PROJECT HOSTED BY QUEENS BOTANICAL GARDEN

The NYC Compost Project helps reduce waste in NYC and rebuild City soils by providing New Yorkers with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to produce and use compost. Founded in 1993, the NYC Compost Project – us! – operates out of host sites in all five boroughs, including Queens Botanical Garden!

The NYC Compost Project works to rebuild NYC’s soils by providing New Yorkers with the knowledge, skills and opportunities they need to produce and use compost locally. The project is funded and managed by the NYC Department of Sanitation’s Bureau of Recycling and Sustainability.

About The NYC Compost Project

The NYC Compost Project helps to reduce waste in NYC and rebuild City soils by providing New Yorkers with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to produce and use compost. Funded since 1993 by the Department of Sanitation’s Bureau of Reuse and Sustainability, our team works to implement this mission through innovative compost and farming programs. With our one-acre farm, pollinator habitat, and compost bin display, we demonstrate how New Yorkers can participate in diverting waste and improving our urban soils. Why compost? Composting is a simple way to start making big changes in our environment. Compost It reduces waste sent to landfills, provides necessary nutrients to plants, and is a great way to connect with nature in our bustling metropolis.
