Give us your leaves!

It’s that time of year again and we’ll be collecting leaves to be composted and used in the garden.

Despite sending out mailers, the Department of Sanitation will not be collecting leaves for composting in Community Board 8 – Prospect Heights and Crown Heights. Please note that, per the DSNY’s 2016 Fall Leaf Collection page, if you leave leaves out on the curb they will be collected with the garbage and end up in the landfill.

Instead, bring them to the garden at one of the following times and we’ll make sure they are put to good use as compost.

Saturday the 6th of November 12-2pm
Sunday the 13th of November 12-2pm
Sunday the 20th of November 12-2pm
Sunday the 4th of December 12-2pm

Please make sure your leaves are bagged in clear or paper bags and that you only bring leaves. Please no twigs, branches or trash.
