Gowanus Canal Conservancy:

 "The Gowanus Canal Conservancy is an independent environmental 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed in 2006 by former members of the Environmental Committee of the Gowanus Canal Community Development Corporation.  Our mission is to be steward for the preservation, restoration and green development of the Gowanus Canal and its environs for the greater good of the community."

Compost Project:

"April 9th marked the day that the ¡Composting Gowanus! program got under way with our first partner in composting: Southside Coffee and Lot 2!  The two businesses will be collecting scraps on a weekly basis in 5 gallon buckets.  We are in the talks with local businesses and organizations to help relieve their organic waste stream.  We at the GCC will keep you up-to-date on new partnerships as the program grows and develops over the summer.

In February our volunteer team secured a $1000 at the FEAST dinner in Greenpoint.  Our promise to the community is to “close the loop” and send organic matter back to the soil.  We feel strongly about that promise and want to do everything we can to promote a new era of clean and green living.

On weekends our volunteers collect the buckets and transport the material to the Salt Lot where we have ample space for composting.  If you are interested in helping our team turn compost and trailer/cart/transport buckets to the Salt Lot this Spring Summer and Fall please contact the GCC’s Compost Coordinator, Erik Martig at emartig@gmail.com."[1]

Contact Gowanus Canal Conservancy if you would like to schedule a drop off or are a buisness and would like to enter into a partnership with them.
