Leaf Composting and Pie Bake Off: McCarren Park Greenmarket Report, Late October

From Chelsea Whittaker, market manager at Williamsburg / Greenpoint’s McCarren Park Greenmarket:

The leaves in the park are starting to turn beautiful colors and fall to the ground. Its always fun to rake those leaves and jump in a pile, but have you ever thought about using them for compost? Gather around the information tent at 10:30am this Saturday, Oct 23, and learn all about leaf composting from master composter Kate Zidar of the North Brooklyn Compost Project!

This year, the market will once again be hosting a winter squash pie bake off! If you love to bake, then this is the competition for you. All contestants will win a prize. Sign up for the Greenpoint Greenmarket November 13th WINTER SQUASH PIE BAKE-OFF at the market info stand or email
