Our office spent a great day out of the office on Friday, starting with the NYC Compost Project. Hosted throughout Brooklyn by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and funded and managed by the NYC Department of Sanitation's Bureau of Recycling and Sustainability, the NYC Compost Project helps New Yorkers reduce waste by offering up knowledge, skills, and opportunities for both producing and using compost. In our office, we collect scraps for compost daily, but our visit to the Red Hook Community Farm gave us a much fuller picture of the composting process. Special thanks to Domingo Morales for the education—and serious workout! (Pictured here are co-president Paul Wolf and Maxwell King, putting on their best "tough guy" faces.)

Want to volunteer with the NYC Compost Project? Drop-in's are welcome on both Friday and Saturday mornings. In the meantime, you can brush up on your composting basics online.
