We headed out to Governor’s Island on the last open weekend of its 2016 summer season. There, we hung out with chicken and children, and we watched compost actually being made. It was amazing to see the bags of food scraps collected in the city shipped across the East River to this island farm and made into the deep brown soil we’d been hearing all about. Without further ado, join us on this final journey to see what waste diversion can really do.
