CANCELED – Park Tours: HRPK’s Compost Center

Take a tour of our Compost Center with the Park’s compost experts and learn how you can support local sustainability!

Hudson River Park’s Community Compost Program invites local residents to participate in simple yet effective actions to support sustainability in their neighborhood.

The Community Compost Program is an initiative designed by Hudson River Park to help divert NYC’s organic waste from landfills and reduce carbon emissions that harm the environment. Since its earliest composting efforts in 2015, the program has grown into a Park-wide operation, turning over 500,000 pounds of food scraps and yard waste into compost each year.

Learn how food scraps and yard waste are processed into nutrient-rich compost that supports healthier plant beds and reduces our carbon footprint.

Directions: Cross at W 34 St and 12 Ave and walk south on the walkway.
