Learn how to compost with the NYC Compost Project

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 compost@queensbotanical.org or call 718-539-5296. Hope to see you there!
