An urban farm is being planted at Kingsborough in what was an asphalt lot. In collaboration with Active Citizen Project/EATS, KCC will soon have a 12-month, high-yielding farm. Using rainwater collection, composting and other resourceful measures, this project will be a demonstration site for sustainable practices. Compost
We're composting farm scraps and food scraps from the culinary arts program, and we get infinite bags of dead leaves from grounds maintenance. We do aerobic composting in a 4-tiered bin system made from hardwood. Eventually we'll have a demonstration area for vermicomposting.
