The storm brought down lots of leaves prematurely, and if you've been doing any leaf clean up, please don't let them end up in the landfill, bring them to the Prospect Heights Community Farm on St. Marks Avenue between Vanderbilt and Underhill. We'll be accepting bags of leaves this weekend as part of our annual Project Leaf Drop initiative.
We will also be available for community composting, if you were planning on bringing your compost to the farmer's market. GrowNYC has suspended its compost collection for the coming weekend: http://www.grownyc.org/blog/.
