Compost Mania

See decomposers under the microscope, meet our red wiggler worms, mix your own potting soil, sow some seeds, and roll wildflower seed balls! Take home what you make! This family-friendly day is all about compost—how it’s made and used. Find out why recycling food scraps and yard waste creates a more sustainable urban environment! Activities will be ongoing, but don’t miss our mini-workshops: • Making a Backyard Batch – 1pm • Composting at QBG – 3pm

Presented by NYC Compost Project hosted by Queens Botanical Garden.
