GreenThumb gardens that have attended a composting workshop and are in good standing with GreenThumb can receive bagged DSNY compost and bagged DSNY mulch at this year’s GreenThumb Summer Supply Giveaway! This program is a new partnership between GreenThumb and the NYC Department of Sanitation’s Bureau of Waste Prevention, Reuse and Recycling (BWPRR). Each bag of DSNY compost weighs approximately 35-40 lbs and each bag of DSNY mulch weighs approximately 40 lbs. Eligible gardens can retrieve up to 41 bags of compost per garden and up to 35 bags of mulch per garden. For more info, visit http://greenthumbnyc.org/ or call (212) 788-8070.
