Just like fabric, paper, and ribbon from the MFTA warehouse can become an art project, did you know that your leftover food scraps can also be reused? That’s right – composting lets you turn your banana peels, apple cores, newspaper, and coffee grounds into homemade, nutrient-rich soil. Come out to MFTA next Thursday, October 4 for a fun and informative “wormshop,” led by our friends at the NYC Compost Project. They’ll show you how to create and maintain a worm bin for your school, community site, or home by reusing plastic bins and other recyclable materials. This project is a great tool to teach kids about biology and recycling.
The workshop will take place in the MFTA classrooms from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM and costs $5 per person. Registration is required – email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 718-539-5296. Hope to see you there!
