Along with Arborpolitan and Urban Arborists, the Conservancy will be participating in New York City’s MulchFest activities once again. Help us reach our goal of collecting and chipping 500 Christmas trees, all of which will be used as feedstock for the Conservancy’s compost program. The compost will be used to amend the soil of street tree beds and gardens, strengthening and beautifying our urban forestry.
Local residents are invited to bring their Christmas trees for recycling while enjoying fresh baked goods and hot mulled cider. Participating volunteers will help collect and receive trees as well as assist with compost activities such as our weekly compost windrow turn and compost sifting.
MulchFest Gowanus will take place on Sunday, January 11, 2015 from 11am-3pm at the Salt Lot (2 Second Ave., Brooklyn NY 11215 @ 5th Street).
