Randall’s Island Urban Farm is thrilled to have the NYC Compost Project joining us for an in-depth lesson on composting in New York City!

We will discuss indoor and outdoor composting methods, including what food scraps can be used in our compost. We’ll get to work building some worm bins and we might even get to sift through some compost to search for invertebrates!

Location: Urban Farm
Workshop Time: 1pm – 2pm

This is a FREE event.
Fun for all ages.
