Mulchfest 2020 – Volunteer Opportunity

On January 4th and 11th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., bring your holiday tree to the Third Street entrance of Prospect Park or the Park Circle entrance at Parkside Avenue and Prospect Park Southwest. Your tree will be turned into environment-friendly mulch, which you can take home free of charge 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.

Can’t make it? You may leave holiday trees at the Park entrances mentioned above January 4 through January 11.

You can help make this event a success by volunteering:

  • help move trees to chipper
  • prepare wreaths for the chipper
  • give out bags of mulch
  • spread mulch around trees in Prospect Park

To volunteer, please e-mail the Civic Council’s Sustainability Committee at

Mulchfest is co-sponsored by the Prospect Park Alliance and the Park Slope Civic Council.

DATE: Saturday, January 4th and January 11th
TIME: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM (two shifts, 10-12pm & 12-2pm)
