COMPOST DISTRIBUTION: Community Compost Giveback

April 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free
Compost Giveback 2022. Pickup free, bagged, ready to use compost for your garden.

Come by the Urban Farm at the Wyckoff House Museum in East Flatbush (5816 Clarendon rd.) to pickup compost for your home and garden.

Compost is Free. This compost is provided by the Department of Sanitation. It is made of organic waste collected around New York City. It is processed, sifted and bagged in Staten Island. It is very high quality and ready to use this spring!

Each bag of compost weighs 40 pounds (approximately 1.5 cubic feet). We are able to provide limited assistance loading your cart or vehicle.

Use compost in your vegetable garden to add essential nutrients to the soil instead of using chemical fertilizers. Give your neighborhood street trees some love by adding compost into street tree pits. Kick off the spring by offering your hardy perennials a few scoops of decomposed organic matter!

1 ticket = 1 Bag of compost

But Wait Theres More!

We compost food scraps at the Urban Farm to make compost We will be processing food scraps on site from 10am-12pm to add to our compost system. We encourage anyone who is picking up compost to stay for a few minutes to help chop scraps and load them into our compost bins.
