Queens Compost Bike Tour

 Smiling Hogshead Ranch and the NYC Compost Project hosted at Queens Botanical Garden  organized a bike tour of six community composting sites in Queens, including Sunny Compost. A big crowd checked out our tumblers and bins and shared in some fruits as they made their way to the other sites.

The tour included stops at:

  • Queens Botanical Garden’s site
  • St. Marks Church/Farmspot CSA compost site in Jackson Heights
  • Brooklyn Grange
  • NYC Compost Project hosted by Build It Green’s compost site at the Queensbridge Baby Park
  • Smiling Hogshead Ranch
The last stop included an overview of SHR's six different composting methods being demonstrated. Including the unveiling of their newest addition, ThermoSense, a technologically advanced
compost monitoring system, installed in partnership with We Radiate and
funded by the Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board’s CCNYC 2015 Composting

Congrats to all who organized this amazing event celebrating community composting in Queens
