Mulchfest … 2-0-1-5!

MulchfestRecycle your Holiday Tree!

Once the holidays are over, help the environment and recycle your Holiday tree at Mulchfest!

On Saturday, January 10, or Sunday, January 11, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., bring your tree to

• the Third Street entrance of Prospect Park
• the Park Circle entrance at Parkside Avenue and Prospect Park Southwest,

and it will be turned into environment-friendly ground cover. You can take home free mulch for your own garden.

While you wait for your mulch at the Third Street entrance, you can
• enjoy hot chocolate, served by the Park Slope Civic Council
• eat snacks from Whole Foods
• become a Civic Council member

Can’t make it? If you live in the area bounded by Union Street, Sixth Avenue, 15th Street, and Prospect Park West, you can leave your tree at either end of your block before 11 a.m. on both days and volunteers from 1-800 Mr. Rubbish and 1-800-GOT-JUNK will pick it up and bring it to the 3rd Street entrance of the Park.

You can help make this event a success by joining us to gather trees and transport them to the park. To volunteer, register by clicking HERE, or e-mail the Civic Council’s Sustainability Committee,

Park Slope Food Coop members can also get work credit by helping with MulchFest for the entire day (four hours). You must contact the Food Coop’s Membership Office to sign up for this credit.

MulchFest is co-sponsored by the Park Slope Civic Council in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance, 1-800 Mr. Rubbish and 1-800-GOT-JUNK.
