Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

Farming and Composting with Earth Matter


Farming and Composting with Earth Matter

Earth Matter is committed to growing fresh nutritious produce to directly supply a local food pantry during the COVID-19 crisis. Volunteers will be mostly helping farm staff to grow and harvest the produce as well as helping to maintain compost piles.

Will be working on farmland so it's important to wear clothes and shoes you don't mind getting dirty.



Earth Matter NY seeks to reduce food waste and garbage by encouraging community participation and leadership in composting programs. New York Cares partners with this organization on a series of sustainability and composting projects.
