Chip in! Mulch your tree! Help NYC grow!
Bring your holiday tree to ASTORIA PARK to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city!
Saturday, January 12th and Sunday, January 13th 2013
10am to 2pm
Astoria Park Parking Lot
19th Street and Hoyt Avenue North
Astoria Park, Queens
Join the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, the New York City Department of Sanitation, and GreeNYC to recycle your Christmas trees into wood chips. These wood chips are used to nourish trees and plants on streets and gardens citywide. Or, take home your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree.
Please remember to remove all lights and ornaments before bringing your tree or wreath to MULCHFEST.
Biodegradable bags will be provided if you wish to take home some free mulch.
MULCHFEST in Astoria Park is co-sponsored by Green Shores NYC, the Astoria Park Alliance & Partnerships for Parks.
