Mulchfest 2016

Join the Park Slope Civic Council and
Prospect Park Alliance at Mulchfest!

Help the environment and recycle your Holiday tree at Mulchfest!

On Saturday, January 9, or Sunday, January 10, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., bring your tree to the Third Street entrance of Prospect Park or 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
  • 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 Saturday and volunteers 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. Volunteers are still needed. To volunteer, e-mail the Civic Council’s Sustainability Committee, or come to the Third Street entrance of the Park.

MulchFest is co-sponsored by the Park Slope Civic Council in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. Special thanks to 1-800 Mr. Rubbish and U-Haul for their valued participation.
