NES Luncheon Composted at Brook Park in the Bronx

NES Compost in the South Bronx

The Friends of Brook Park offered to compost our food and paper waste after the Tenth Annual Colloquium

The NES Colloquium was a resounding success. We welcomed over 225 people over the course of two 8-hour days of presentations, workshops, films and performance, replete with a free sustainable luncheon on the second day.

Communal Table catered our meal, even going so far as secure a donation of eggs from Brooklyn Farmyards, a Brooklyn-based farming network and Egg CSA (community supported agriculture). The meal was DELICIOUS!!! Thank you Ame and Deena! Communal Table purchased our completely compost-able / biodegradable paper goods and utensils from Sustainable Party so that ours was a Green Luncheon from stem to stern!

Recycling committee members Maggie Ornstein and Christine Caruso took our food and paper waste to the South Bronx for composting. Our Friends at Brook Park graciously offered to compost it for us. With all of their fantastic initatives, our compost will likely contribute to Community Gardens and other green thumb initiatives across the South Bronx.

Our biggest thanks go to our friends, The Friends of Brook Park!
