Volunteers will continue to maintain the garden until further notice. For updates, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Compost for Brooklyn (C4B) is a community composting project based in Kensington, Brooklyn, New York. We are committed to ecological restoration, composting, and education in our local neighborhood and beyond.

 

Ecological Restoration

We are dedicated to growing healthier urban communities from the soil on up. Come see how we have used our compost to transform a once vacant lot into a thriving refuge for plants, pollinators, and community members!

Composting

Compost for Brooklyn empowers city residents to reduce waste through our free community composting program at our garden in Kensington, Brooklyn.  

Please join our mailing list to receive updates about schedule changes and cancellations.

Compost for Brooklyn is entirely run by volunteers. Please contact us at volunteer [at] compostforbrooklyn [dot] org if you’re interested in volunteering to host open hours.

Compost for Brooklyn is fiscally sponsored by the Open Space Institute as part of its Citizen Action Program.
