Meet Guy

Have you met Guy? Guy is an amazing volunteer who has been helping out for a really long time on Sundays. He sifts compost, doesn’t mind getting splashed with rotting lime juice, creates our super cool BK ROT Buckets and occasionally makes delicious vegan cupcakes for us. Oh, and did we mention he also is a stellar PhD student working on a thesis about municipal waste. What a gem.

Extra Professional

This team is looking extra professional (and really cute) while preparing compost orders for delivery to Ujima Garden and Saratoga Village.

P.S…How exciting to be filling the needs of our local community gardens!

596 Acres

596 Acres is truly doing revolutionary work right here! Their work is helping people create alternatives: growing their own food, taking care of their own organic waste and opening vital community hubs. They help provide tools for people to find available land, advocate to help them get it, help them navigate city agencies and have the backs of gardeners in NYC. Please give a few bucks if you can.

BK ROT is on the run again.

Beautiful weather. Amazing team. Great community.


We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.
