Reminders (1st of 17): MulchFest — or TreeCycle! — is this weekend in Tompkins Square Park
[Photo Monday by Bobby Williams]
MulchFest 2016, TWO action-packed holy days of obligation in the blogosphere, is happening tomorrow (Saturday!) and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Tompkins Square Park.
Per the Park Depo on what to do: Please remember to remove all lights, ornaments and netting before bringing the tree to the Park. Bags will be provided if you wish to take some free mulch home or, as we like to do, place between our cheek and gum like Skoal.
Also, this is important: Please remember to remove all children from the trees as well.
As you can see, several trees were discarded yesterday in Tompkins Square Park with the children intact, as these photos by EV MulchFest Associate Editor Steven show...
Oh, we're joking. The kids actually took cover here from some Post reporters.
Also, if you can't make MulchFest (lazy!), then the NYC Department of Sanitation is continuing special curbside collections for mulching and recycling of Christmas/holiday trees through next Friday.
And finally (finally), a reminder on East Fifth Street that may be a clever imitation of the East Fifth St. Tree Committee...
