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!
