Want To Learn More About Composting - You're Invited To The Roosevelt Island Garden Club & NYC Compost Hosted By Big Reuse Weekend Organics Recycling Mission Saturday June 3

Roosevelt Island Garden Club (RIGC) Board Member for Publicity and Outreach Julia Ferguson reports:

Roosevelt Island is fortunate to have NYC Compost hosted by Big Reuse offering our weekly Food Scrap Drop Off Site near the Farmer's Market. As of a last count in March, Roosevelt Islanders had diverted over 35,000 pounds from landfill. (That's about the weight of an 18 wheeler semi truck!) RI has also received give backs of hyper local compost from the Queensboro Bridge site for gardens, trees, and schools on Roosevelt Island.

Want to learn more about composting? Please join Roosevelt Island Garden Club and NYC Compost hosted by Big Reuse this Saturday, June 3rd for a Compost Connection Event. Stop by the RIGC community gardens (across from 750 Main Street) between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.

Join our Weekend Organics Recycling Mission + Sifting!
The Roosevelt Island NYC Compost hosted by Big Reuse weekly Food Scrap Drop Off Site near the Farmer's Market began in November 2015. At that time, Roosevelt Island Girl Scout Troop Leader Aiesha Eleusizov explained to us how it works.

In Febrauary 2016, Roosevelt Island Garden Club members Anthony Longo and Karen Lee demonstrated

how to compost.
