The average New York City household discards two pounds of organic waste each day—more than a million tons of organic material a year! Composting is one of the most direct, accessible ways to reduce the amount of garbage you produce and we’ll even teach you how you can do it in your apartment!

Carey Pulverman, from the Lower East Side Ecology Center, will cover this issue and answer questions on Governors Island this Saturday. Pack a picnic, bring your bike, and use this as an excuse to enjoy one of NYC’s quietest and greenest open spaces. Be sure to catch the noon ferry (it’s all free, by the way) because the event will begin at 12:30.

Carey’s presentation is part of a summer-long series (every Saturday) put on by the very same Institute that has brought you this blog. You can check out the full list of events on our website.
