QBG/Food Scraps

NEWS: We are expanding our hours of operation. Staring on September 12, we are open from 8:30 to 11:30. We hope that extra hour helps!

Big Thanks to Queens Botanical Garden for organizing sites across the borough; DSNY for materials, services; Kew Gardens Cinemas for sponsoring; And neighbors for encouragement.

Report for June: Please pick up the informative materials on the QBG table. Their website has useful info and why not become a member of Queens Botanical Garden? Join.

Report for July: We are happy to say that we have a very dedicated group of neighbors who care. It is great to see the same faces and to get to know you.

We now have two large bins replacing the smaller ones we started with. And we have a washing station—water and wipes to get that grit off your hands when you rip open the bags.

We are encouraging people to sign up for the monthly newsletter and we are setting up volunteer opportunities.

Everyone is getting to know Jasmine, the composting expert from Queens Botanical Garden. She will answer our questions and guide us further into composting. And Ron, who has been there from the start, keeps us going.

Coming: Compost Giveback: August 8.
