Pacific St. Community Compost Project! KICKOFF Event, Sunday, April 27.

Just in time for Earth Week…. Stop by the Pacific Street Garden, anytime on April 27th, 2008, between 11am to 1pm and add your home scraps to our NEW COMPOST TUMBLER!

As one of the strategies to relieve the surrounding community of the ongoing rat infestation, the Pacific Street Brooklyn Bear’s Community Garden invites neighbors to CONTRIBUTE HOME FOOD SCRAPS to our new above-ground tumbler compost system. We hope that by taking some of that element out the trash and out of the rat’s “food stream,” together we can discourage rats from their nightly visits.

While it may be difficult to prevent food waste in your daily routine, disposing them in an environmentally sound manner couldn’t be easier. Simply store your scraps in a sturdy bag in your refrigerator or freezer — depending on capacity and how frequently you can make it to the garden. Then bring your scraps to the Bear’s Garden on Flatbush at Pacific Street and add it to the NEW COMPOST TUMBLER!

You can get access to the garden in two ways: 1) Become a member and get your own key (after all, it’s YOUR community garden) or 2) drop -off scraps during garden open hours , Tuesdays, 6–8pm or Saturdays & Sundays, 10am–2pm, volunteers and weather permitting. Then, follow simple instructions posted at the garden, and YOU BECOME PART OF THE SOLUTION!!!!

Looking forward to seeing you AND your food scraps in the garden soon! Contact info: For more info on composting visit
