Events We Love: Chelsea Street Tree Care
The NYC Compost Project hosted by the Lower East Side Ecology Center in partnership with block associations in the Chelsea area have announced an opportunity to help beautify streets in Chelsea next week.
On October 14th from 10 AM to 1 PM, join the team as they steward street trees by pulling weeds, removing litter, and applying locally-produced compost to historic trees in one of Manhattan’s most heavily-trafficked neighborhoods. Event registration is required– sign up here.
Volunteers will meet at the back entrance of P.S. 11 (located at 315 W. 20th Street in Chelsea, just a short walk from the C/E subway stop at 23rd Street). Tools, gloves, and aprons will be provided; volunteers should just bring a water bottle and be sure to wear clothes that they don’t mind soiling– literally.
