Urban Composting with Western Queens Compost Initiative
Socrates Sculpture Park, Queens
$10 in advance (with discount)
Help the Western Queens Compost Initiative fabricate rodent and odor proof compost tumblers for some of the boroughs largest parks, community gardens, and greening groups. In a step by step process, instructors will show how readily available materials are sourced to construct compost tumblers out of reclaimed pickle barrels, giving the public an opportunity to learn how to build these tumblers on their own. The tumblers that will be assembled will be used for public greening projects in Western Queens.
