PHCF Composting in the news

The Earth Day episode of DiverseCity TV featured the PHCF Composting Program and the expansion that has gone on during the pandemic. Watch it here!

Compost Capacity Expanded!

Wondering where to compost? Bring it to the Farm!

Now with the generous support of NatureBasedwe are able to significantly expand the amount of food scraps we accept on Sundays. So, bring us your Food Scraps, Sundays 10 – 12 noon


New Compost Drop Off Hours

Beginning this Sunday, May 24th, Prospect Heights Community Farm will roll out a partial re-opening of Food Scrap Drop Offs for the community! 

During this PAUSE period, PHCF seeks to restart, within our limited capacity, the incorporation of your food scraps into our compost system as safely and efficiently as possible. Towards that end, drop offs will be accepted differently than usual – received by a volunteer at the (closed) front gate of the garden with a face covering and appropriate social distancing required. 

What: Food Scrap Drop Off
When: Sundays 10 – 12 pm Where: On the outside of the (closed) front gate.
How: Mask or face covering required for drop off. 

Mulch your Christmas tree at MulchFest!


Bringing your Christmas tree to the garden will guarantee its continued use in the form of mulch which will be used in the garden and around the neighbourhood. Don’t let your tree end up in the trash!

TreeCycle/Mulch Fest 2015 is part of an annual, city wide program organised by New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, the New York City Department of Sanitation, and GreeNYC to recycle your Christmas trees into wood chips. For more info on the program, go to the MulchFest site.

Prospect Heights Community Farm will be one of the many places to drop off your Christmas tree throughout the city. We’ll be collecting trees and chipping them into mulch on Saturday and Sunday the 10th and 11th of January from 10 am to 2 pm. That gives you a few days from twelfth night on the 5th of January to lug your tree over to the garden.
