Discover the fun and ease of composting indoors with the NYC Compost Project on Staten Island hosted at Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden. Participants will get first-hand experience constructing an indoor compost bin, discover the science behind the process, learn the basics of maintaining a healthy bin, and how to harvest and use the finished compost.

You and the kids will learn how to convert household waste into a rich soil amendment which encourages soil health and plant growth. Nearly one half of what you send to the landfill can be composted, so with just a few minutes of work each week you can significantly lessen your environmental impact and increase the productivity of your garden!

The NYC Compost Project is funded and managed since 1993 by the NYC Department of Sanitation’s Bureau of Waste Prevention, Reuse and Recycling to provide compost outreach and education in all five boroughs.
