Ben Franklin Community Garden

Composting At BFCG

We now have year-round facility for composting. See the information flyer.

You can also compost in your plot. During the season, see the various methods below.

Remember that at the end of the season it is not necessary and not recommended that vegetation/organic material be removed from your garden. Also, gardeners are encouraged to leave flowers in place to provide for our pollinators. Aside from your flowers, vegetation (including vines and plant stalks) must be cut to lengths/heights of less than two (2) feet and distributed evenly across your garden. That's all there is to it!
