Mulchfest 2019 in Prospect Park

Saturday, January 12 , 10 am – 2 pm

Join Prospect Park Alliance on January 12 + 13 for Mulchfest! Bring your holiday tree to Prospect Park, where it will go through a chipper and transform into environment-friendly mulch at both 3rd Street and Park Circle Entrances. Plus, you can take some home for your own yard or garden. Please remove all decorations from the trees.

Volunteers are needed to help assist people who bring their trees in for recycling by removing ornaments and distributing mulch. Register to volunteer today!

Can't make it out January 12 or 13? Starting January 4, the community is welcome to leave holiday trees along the Park perimeter fence near the Ocean Avenue and Lincoln Road entrance. Prospect Park Alliance employees and volunteers will be collecting these trees January 4 – 13.

Special thanks to Park Slope Civic Council for providing refreshments at 3rd Street entrance and helping to promote this event.
