Carter’s Compost is Traverse City’s bike-powered, neighborhood kitchen scrap go-getters. We started in April of 2012 and have now helped 100+ neighbors/businesses in and around TC compost their kitchen scraps.

We are 100% bike-powered. We use pedal power to help green our neighborhood, reduce waste, save landfill space, and grow awesome garden soil.

We compost the kitchen scraps using our worms and piles here at C’sC World HQ, as well as in our Neighborhood Compost Stations and “sharing piles“.

Once the compost is ready, we give it back to our members so that they can use it in their garden to grow yummy veggies. This is called “completing the cycle”.

Growing neighborhood food using neighborhood compost made from neighborhood kitchen scraps = Awesome!

Compost isn’t complicated but sometimes people are just too busy to turn the pile, worry about Carbon and Nitrogen ratios or wrangle worms.  Some neighbors don’t have the space at home and others just don’t know how to compost their kitchen scraps.

Carter’s Compost is dedicated to building community by making composting super easy for our Traverse City neighbors.

We’re dreaming big in 2015!. We’ll be expanding our Community Sustained Compost Project: More Neighborhood Compost Stations. More “sharing” piles. More Compost Boys (or Girls!). More Drop-Off sites. More buckets to more neighbors. We hope you’ll join us.

Traverse City is an awesome town. We love our water, our local food and our local farmers. We are a foodie town but hopefully, real soon, we’ll be a compost town too. There’s a lot of value in those banana peels and apple cores and, as you know, you can’t grow awesome veggies without awesome soil.

So let’s be Compost Champions together and make it happen OK? Like my friend Gary said, “With the power of compost, anything is possible”.

Stay Worm and Compost On!
