NYC Mulchfest 2022 in the East Village and Bushwick

Woo-hoo, this last weekend saw our favorite annual event, Mulchfest!

We never miss a chance to check out the NYC Parks Department wood chipper.

On Saturday, the chipper was fired up and the pile of discarded Christmas trees in Tompkins Square Park was ground up into heavenly-smelling mulch.

Here is video of the chipping crew in action in Tompkins Square:



The team made quick work of the tree pile.


On Sunday, we visited Maria Hernandez Park in Bushwick, Brooklyn, to check out the Mulchfest action there.

The mulch piles reached about five feet high, and people were welcomed to take as much mulch as they wanted.

As usual, the Parks Department provided cute little canvas bags for collecting mulch.

Alas, we now have to wait another year before we get to see the chipper come out again. Until then, we have our apartment-sized evergreen sachet to remind us of the coziest time of year.
