GCC Projects¡Composting Gowanus!
Every month, conservancy volunteers incorporate between 7,000-8,000 lbs of food scraps into new compost windrows. Additionally, we have a weekly turn for the existing windrows that are sitting on the Salt Lot, and upon completion sift through cured compost to produce our beautiful end product - rich compost ready for the garden.
