BK ROT is supported solely by our members whose seasonal fees go directly to stipends for our youth workers. All supplies are paid for by grants and those involved give their time and talent in kind. We know this project resounds with many in our community even beyond the boundaries of Bushwick so we wanted to offer a way for people excited about what we are doing to directly support the project as well.
Any amount makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.
Just to give some transparency to what individual gifts can help us with
$10.00 pays for a pair of heavy duty work gloves for youth & volunteers (constantly needed)
$25.00 pays for a pair of rubber work boots for use at each compost site
$30.00 pays for a helmet for a biker
$50.00 pays for tarps, tools, storage bins, things we can’t seem to have enough of
$75.00 pays for soil testing of our finished compost, we will be doing this multiple times a year.
$100.00 affords us a celebratory group meal, something we’ve yet to be able to have together after a hard day’s work!
Monthly giving in support of our general operations is a valuable option and appreciated too!
There are a few big ticket items we are working toward for 2016 such as
- a Cargo Bike so we can offer finished compost delivery in the Spring
- a Solar Powered Aerated Static Pile Composting System for Know Waste Lands
- a Bike Shed to protect bikes from the elements and theft
- Leadership Trainings to support our youth’s skills to grow with the project
