More trees were mulched at Fort Greene Park than at any other Brooklyn location during MulchFest. Parks Department workers chipped 1,743 trees during the weekend of January 10-11, nearly 17% more than the next busiest location. As David Barker, the Director of Fort Greene Park said, “the results speak for themselves.”
Many holiday trees had been neatly left along the wall in the plaza area, waiting to be mulched. Many more were brought by residents during the event. Parks workers and volunteers spread fresh mulch around tree beds and inside Fort Greene Park. Some people (photo above) took advantage of the free mulch to use on there own projects.
This event was sponsored by the Fort Greene Park Conservancy and the NYC Parks Department, in partnership with the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership.
