NYC Compost Project and Heritage Farm Tour

Janes Walk

Led By Grace Donovan AND Susannah Abbate, Compost Outreach Coordinator / Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden

See where we turn all that food waste into precious compost! Join the NYC Compost Project Hosted by Snug Harbor for a tour of our compost site. Find out about how compost is made across the City, see different compost systems, and learn how we can turn this environmental threat into an environmental resource. Stick around for a tour of the Heritage Farm, a 2.5 acre production farm here at Snug Harbor. Learn more about urban farming, sustainable agriculture, the importance of food access, and different farming techniques.

We'll be walking a while and on uneven terrain.
