The Lower East Side Ecology Center’s community compost program began in 1990 at the community garden on East 7th Street, between Avenues B and C.  Since 1994, they have also offered a collection program at the Union Square Greenmarket.  Community participants can drop off their kitchen scraps in both locations. The collected materials are transported to East River Park and processed in the center’s in-vessel composting system. After three months, the finished compost makes its way back to the market, where it is sold either as compost or as part of their potting soil mix.

EXCELLENT potting soil for both indoor potted and outdoor ground planting.
I used this potting soil and compost for my whole backyard and seedlings while
taking a permaculture course in design. I just found this site searching to see if
you are at the 14th st market on mondays.
