Farmingville, NY – In celebration of Earth Day (April 22) and Arbor Day (April 26), the Town held its annual “Free Tree Seedling, Mulch and Compost Giveaway” on April 25 in the amphitheater parking lot in Farmingville. The event is part of Supervisor Ed Romaine’s “Greening Brookhaven” initiative to distribute and plant 10,000 tree seedlings by 2020, which was exceeded last year. The free mulch and compost will continue to be available at various Town locations while supplies last. Mulch and compost is not bagged, so residents must provide their own containers and load the materials themselves into their vehicles. For more information, please call 631-451-TOWN. Pictured (left to right) with a resident (center) picking up free seedlings are Senior Environmental Analyst Michael Albano; Environmental Analyst Alan Duckworth; Councilwoman Valerie M.
