What do you currently do to reduce your impact? Have you taken any of the NYC training courses we list in our Pages section? If you are a "Green Entrepreneur", you are welcome to add your business to our list in the Pages section.

During 2012, I started a tree care group in Brooklyn called Campus Road Trees to care for 15 street trees on one city block.

What do you hope to do in the future?

Continue caring for those trees and re-think designs for tree guards and bedding plants.

Please give us one suggestion for a future meet up event!

workshops on insect/plant relationships. For example, the need for planting late blooming flowers in your garden and what pollinators they attract.

In which borough do you live? (So we branch out into everyone's communities)

Nassau County, I'm 5 minutes outside the city but work in the city.

We have FREE vermicompost worms to donate under our "Pay It Forward" program! Interested in setting up a compost bin? See our Pages section for instructions.

Already have two. And you should only give those to people with indoor bins who plan to maintain them as indoor bins. Lots of people move, and when they do, they dump them in a nearby garden...which isn't an ecological choice. Red wiggler worms, Eisenia fetida are unnecessary to outdoor piles and have become an invasive species in the woods even in wooded urban areas because they eat decaying matter too quickly and don't leave enough "duff" and seeds for understory plants to grow. They are not native to the US.

Introduction

I love plants and I'm cultivating a growing love for insects!
