Since GrowNYC has received private funding, the Mayor and DSNY now only need to restore $1.75 million in funding to save these essential programs and 60 jobs at the 7 organizations.
We ask that you please reach out to the Mayor and Commissioner today with this new information and ask DSNY to restore funding for all seven of the Compost Project partners:
- Call 311 and ask to leave a message for the Mayor
- Send a message to the Mayor online
- Send a message to the DSNY commissioner
- Share our social media posts
The budget cuts will eliminate:
Composting and distribution of 1,500 cubic yards of compost to over 325 community groups, parks, 85 street tree care events, and thousands of individuals each year
Master Composter activities which engage over 1,000 yearly participants in food, farming, and composting
Compost outreach and education to over 225,000 New Yorkers annually
6 community composting sites
Thank you in advance for your support and solidarity in advocating for this social, economic and Environmental Justice issue.
