Compost donation arriving on Tuesday

Fall is a great time to apply compost to nutrient-depleted soil. Cooperator and gardener Dawn Fox has arranged to have Lower East Side Ecology Center donate a large amount of food scrap compost to replenish the cooperative garden.

The drop-off will be Tuesday, November 1 around 11:30 am by the garden behind building 1, near the Section C parking lot. Any gardeners who can help should bring gloves and tools. LESEC may have more compost than is needed for the garden, so you are invited to bring your own empty bag and take some soil home for your balcony garden or houseplants.

Any questions, please contact Dawn at
