2014 comes to a close

Another year of composting comes to a close! Time sure does fly! SunnyCompost had some great successes this year:

  • Lots of new volunteers!
  • A new leaf bin was built!
  • Three big batches of compost were created!
  • Open House and Pumpkin Smash was held!
  • Workshop for PS 11 students was held!
  • Workshop with Woodside Neighborhood Association was held!
  • We donated finished compost to Sunnyside is Blooming and Re-Create Queens for planting events!
  • We've had steady drop-offs of food scraps for over two years!

Grateful to all who help us - Sunnyside Community Garden members, Sunnyside Gardens Park, NYC Compost Project, BiG!Compost, NYC Department of Sanitation, Woodside Neighborhood Association, PS 11, and all of our dedicated volunteers.

  • Sunny Compost is open year round. Our drop-off hours are on Sundays from 2:00 - 5:00. (See attached flyer.)
