the project

Composting pumpkins is a fun event and is great for kids and adults.The pumpkins breakdown quickly and they add nitrogen to compost. Composting our Halloween pumpkins is a great way for people to learn about the cycle of growth and decay. 
We're participating with neighborhood groups and school garden committees in our Fall 2014 effort. This effort is a collaboration with the NYC Composting Project. There are multiple pumpkin composting locations at various schools in Downtown Manhattan as well as locations in each of the 5 Boroughs

the steps

Your donation will help pay for snacks and giveaways for participants. Pumpkin collection is one small step for sustainability and a way to show our kids and neighbors how easy it is to compost food scraps. Compost in the Fall for healthy soil in the Spring!

why we're doing it

This project seeks to address the environmental issue of food waste. The inclusion of food scraps in landfills is an ongoing problem and this project speaks to this issue in a fun, seasonal way. Kids (and adults) are asked to participate by composting their Halloween Jack O'Lanterns and learn about the cycle of growth, decay and re-growth. We will also have compost giveaways and seed packs for participants.
