Handmade, Locally Produced Compost
Our compost is made of food scraps from Bushwick residents, coffee grounds from Express Yourself Barista Cafe, Cacao husks from Fine & Raw’s chocolate factory, clean sawdust from local wood shops and leaves from the NYC Parks Department. We deliver in Brooklyn for a fee and have a variety of options listed below. To place an order, fill out the order form at the bottom of this page.
What can I use compost for?
For Potting Mixes: We recommend using the compost with another organic potting mix for new plants or seedlings.
For Houseplant Fertilizer: Use BK ROT Compost as a top dressing for indoor houseplants. Place a small amount on top of the plant soil and water as usual, letting the nutrients soak into the soil.
For Cover Cropping and Soil Amendment: Spread 1-3 inches of compost over the growing area.
We sell unpackaged compost in bulk and in smaller quantities. We offer delivery or you can pick up the material on Sundays from 12:30-3PM.
