We want to help you reduce waste and cultivate healthy urban ecosystems!

 In addition to our community compost project at Newkirk Avenue and East 8th Street, Compost for Brooklyn now offers the following in-home, school, and office services.

 Start a Compost System in Your Home, School, or Office

Whether you are looking to compost in an office with hundreds of employees or your own studio apartment, Compost for Brooklyn will help you identify and install the composting system that best fits your space, needs, and lifestyle.

 Compost Maintenance and Troubleshooting

Do you need help maintaining your system? Do you have questions about how to improve the quality and productivity of your heap? We are available for on-site check-ups and compost maintenance.

Composting and Gardening Workshops

We want to share our love of compost, native plants, and beneficial bugs with your school, business, or community organization. Compost for Brooklyn offers interactive, fun, and informative workshops on a variety of topics and tailored to individual audiences. We are available to host you in our garden or at your space.

 Native Plant Gardening Consultations

By incorporating native plant species into your garden, you provide food and shelter for beneficial insect populations, which will in turn improve the overall health of your garden and NYC’s urban ecosystems. Compost for Brooklyn can help you develop garden designs, select the right plants for your space, and provide you with the gardening expertise to help your plants thrive.

Compost & Native Plant Consultations for Community Organizations

Does your local community garden need help starting or improving its compost system? Do you want to learn how to attract beneficial insects such as bees and butterflies to your vegetable patch? Compost for Brooklyn offers our workshops and native plant gardening consultations (described above) to community organizations at a reduced price.

Bug Land Builders

Bug Land Builders, an educational program of Compost for Brooklyn, teaches students about the vital role that invertebrates play in our urban ecosystems. The curriculum begins with an exploration of decomposers and composting, and culminates with the planting of a pollinator garden at the students’ school.
