Tons of Compost!
Prospect Farm has collected about 2,880 lbs. of food scraps in April, May, and June 2012. When you add this amount to the 2,780 lbs. we collected in the first 3 months of the year, that’s about 2 1/2 tons of food scraps diverted from the waste stream!
Last year Prospect Farm received financial support through NYC-based crowd-resourcing platform ioby to build six new composting bins. Those bins made it possible for us to expand and improve the composting operation at the farm. We owe many thanks to our donors, as well as to our team of compost monitors and all the neighbors who save their food scraps and bring them by at our two weekly drop-offs.
Keep those food scraps coming!
