Fruit flies and lack of education are blamed for the slow response to the city's composting project.
The composting program is being expanded to include 720 city public schools.
The courses are part of a fundraiser for the Compost Collective.
The group composts food scraps from local residents.
The city is reportedly planning to expand its composting program this year.
Commuters can now drop their food scraps off the Vernon Blvd. 7 Train and Greenpoint G Train stations.
Local groups will start collecting household food scraps at the market in June.
Build It Green is collecting food scraps for composting every Tuesday near the Broadway N/Q train stop.
