A Trip to McEnroe Organic Farm

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking a trip up to McEnroe Organic Farm to pick up the best potting soil the NYC region has to offer!  Erich, a 4th generation McEnroe farmer, was kind enough to give me a tour of their 4 season greenhouses where I was able to eat green beans (planted around the tomatoes to fix nitrogen into the soil), super sweet carrots and fresh off the vine tomatoes.  What a way to spend a 55 degree February day in New York!

As delicious as my snacks were, I was really there for their amazing organic compost and potting soil, made onsite.  We'll keep you posted on the progress of our seedlings in this nutrient rich living soil mix, but in the mean time, enjoy these photos from the trip and check out some of these helpful NYC composting resources:

Whether you feel bold enough to vermicompost in your kitchen, or just want to drop off your scraps at the local Greenmarket, here are some links that can help:
Happy Composting!
