Jodie Colon, Compost Educator at Bronx Green-Up, demonstrates how to mix dead, dry leaves and stems, fresh moist green plant materials, and food scraps in a heap for easy composting. With the passage of time, these disparate organic materials form a dark, nutrient-rich material to add to your garden beds and containers.

Bronx Green-Up is a community outreach program at the New York Botanical Garden. It is also part of The New York City Compost Project.
