Pumpkin Smash 2019

Wednesday, November 6, 2019

3:30 – 5:30 p.m.

Our pumpkins, squashes, and gourds close out the Halloween season with a trip to the annual Pumpkin Smash event at Lehman College, organized by the NYC Compost Project Hosted by The New York Botanical Garden. All are welcome to take edible pumpkins for cooking, save them for seeds, or relieve stress by smashing inedible ones to compostable pieces. The finished compost is later distributed to local community gardens.
