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 compost in bulk and in smaller quantities. We offer delivery or you can pick up the material on Sundays from 12:30-3PM.
