Compost Volunteers

Hudson River Park’s Community Compost Program has made our Park more sustainable and helped make a green impact in our local community. In its first year, our Compost Center enabled us to stop trucking plant waste to the landfill, while creating compost that has enhanced the health and heartiness of our Park’s plant-life.

The more our Compost Program grows, the greater impact we can make in our Park and adjacent neighborhoods, and to make this happen, we need your help! When you volunteer as a Compost Facilitator, you make a real difference in creating a greener future for our west side community.
