Reminder: Christmas Tree Mulchtime
Now that Three Kings Day has passed, it's time to take the tree down. Does that seem late? My parents always put the tree up on the 24th or maybe the 23rd and leave it up through the 6th of January. Lately they've been altering that schedule, but that's how I remember it. Personally, until the kids are old enough to enjoy the tree and NOT destroy/eat the ornaments and branches, I'll do without.
But for those that did enjoy the scents and sights of a freshly (or within several weeks) cut tree in your home this season, here's your chance to make its life worth just a little more. Mulchfest is here! It's this coming Saturday and Sunday (January 10th and 11th) from 10 AM to 2 PM.
Sunset Park is a drop off only location for Mulchfest, but if you want to watch them chip up your tree or pick up some mulch for yourself, Owl's Head Park is the closest location. Green-Wood Cemetery also has a drop off only location. Check out the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation site for more information.
