Contribute + participate.
Every Friday afternoon, from 3:30-4:30, we host a weekly compost work session. Anyone is welcome to drop off household compost then or during the garden's regular open hours. If it’s your first time composting with us, check out our compost tip sheet to see what we do and don’t take: English, Español, বাংলা. For other questions or information about composting at Myrtle Village Green, please contact our compost coordinator.
Our Compost Program has processed 36,000 pounds of compostables that would have otherwise gone into landfills. We’ve trained 65 non-members through a partnership with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and in our own public-facing workshops. We’ve also trained dozens of MVG member-volunteers in composting best-practices.
Starting in 2018, we are proud to partner with BK Rot, North Brooklyn’s bike powered composting service that employs young adults with a living wage to cart compostables from local businesses to gardens like ours.
