Accoutrement provided: Bike and trailer from Bike n Roll on Gov Island, or just a bike provided by Recycle a Bicycle in LIC. Two small compost bins of which one has finished soil to show and tell, a pack of bean seeds, and some newspaper. The newspaper is for the DYI take-home pots for the seed and soil.

Finished compost goes to the Earth Matters area -- the home of compost on Governors Island. The people will have a table with more information and sample bins toward which we point people.

It's pretty simple! Just come out, have fun with us and spread the soil soul.
