The LIC Post reports on a proposed farmers market for the Hunters Point section of LIC. It would be run by Down to Earth Farmers Markets, a company that runs 20 markets in Westchester County, Rockland County, and NYC. It will be located on 48th Avenue between Vernon Blvd and 5th Street, which is right about where the former greenmarket took place, which was run by GrowNYC.
It’s easier than ever for Queens residents to green their routines, thanks to the increasing number of compost initiatives around the borough. Several libraries, Greenmarkets, community gardens, and other organizations have become drop-off sites for your kitchen scraps, so that your food waste doesn’t have to go into the landfill.
If you’re ready to go green in 2013, here are the many locations you can bring food/plant scraps to be composted. Most of these drop-off sites are open year round, and more locations will be added soon.
