A Day of Composting & Sustainability @ Earth Matter’s Governors Island Farm

Loading Experiences

Did you know that there’s a composting farm tucked away on Governors Island that operates year-round?

Join New York Adventure Club for a farm-filled day at the Governors Island headquarters of Earth Matter, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the art, science, and application of composting in and around New York City.

Our day-long experience at the Earth Matter farm will include:

  • The history and story behind Earth Matter, and how to volunteer with them in the future.
  • A look at the NYC Compost Project, which composts 28,000 lbs of food scraps from Governors Island and NYC community members each month.
  • A tour around the Compost Learning Center — learn about composting, dig your hands in the earth, and help ensure that there is “no waste wasted” on Governors Island.
  • Hands-on activities around the Soil Start Farm, which includes crops, community garden beds, mini greenhouses, and upward of 60 animals.


See you there!
