Green Apple Festival 2009 in New York City: Spreading Compost in Tompkins Square Park

Working in Tompkins Square Park this past Sunday as an Earth Day volunteer for the Green Apple Festival seemed like a perfect transition from Saturday's activities Red Hook Community Farm (I helped build four new compost bins). Helping an enthusiastic group of volunteers spread compost around various areas of the park in need of some nutrients was a very literal interpretation of getting into Earth Day.

But don't just take it from me. Another volunteer's experience is below:
