Monthly Compost Build

Dates: See specific dates below
Hours: 9 am – 12 pm

Join us to build a compost windrow! We will combine 15,000 lbs of neighborhood-generated food scraps with an equal amount of Governors Island yard waste. Learn about how we process these organics.

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

Upon registering, you will be contacted by Earth Matter to confirm your volunteer registration.
