Planning a Zero Waste Garden Event Part 2

Monday, May 24, 2021

12:00 p.m.1:00 p.m.

This workshop will go over the basics composting your garden waste and paper products from events to turn into black gold to apply on your garden beds to promote soil health and vibrant plants. We will take you on a tour of our space on Governors Island and dive into the various components of our Zero Waste Island Initiative, a partnership between Earth Matter NY and the Trust for Governors Island.

Please RSVP on Eventbrite to secure a spot. Space is very limited, and masks will be required. We will be managing a waitlist, so if you register for a ticket and no longer plan to attend, please cancel your ticket or let us know.

Participants will be invited to take the 11:00 a.m. am or 11:30 a.m. ferry to Governor's Island. Full details will be shared with registrants as the date gets closer.
