Mulchfest 2020 in Tompkins Square Park

2020 marks the 11th year we've participated in the most glorious event of the year: Mulchfest!

Mulchfest 2020 in Tompkins Square Park

We visited Tompkins Square Park on a foggy Saturday morning to take in our favorite activity of all time: wood chipping!

As city dwellers, we don't often get to enjoy the sound and smell of freshly ground evergreen trees, so Mulchfest is eagerly anticipated all year.



For the next few weeks, the park will smell heavenly, especially when the mulch gets spread throughout the park.

While we were there, park employees were on hand to distribute little canvas bags so we could take home our very own aromatic mulch.

There's still time to drop off Christmas trees in Tompkins Square as the next chipping date is this coming Saturday, January 11, 10am-2pm. In the mean time, the mulch pile will be there for the taking.
