How’s your May going? Our’s has been killer. It’s only half way done and May is already been the most awesome month of the year. So far. So good.

A recap:

– Crushed our Bike-powered Community Kickstarter Project. We raised almost $4200 via 70 backers from all over the planet. We’re super excited about our new cargo trailers and the Traverse City Dirt Tshirt.

National Compost Awareness Week rocked. Signed up/renewed 14 members who’ve committed to being Compost Champions. Screened 15 buckets of our 100% awesome locally grown compost during our Neighborhood Dirt Party. And added another “pile sharer” to our map.

– Scored a $1000 grant from the wonderful people at So Delcious. We won there #140Difference contest with this tweet:

Bike-Powered, Youth-Driven Community Composting: Compost Boys (or Girls!) slinging buckets to green our #tcmi neighborhoods. #140Difference

We will be using this money to expand our bicycle cargo trailer fleet as we aim to get more trailers to more kids in more TC neighborhoods.

– Enter the crew from Gainesville Compost and Kanner Karts. We’re teaming up with them to bring 3, yes 3!, of their awesome PRO trailers to Northern Michigan. They will be our Big Boy (or Girl!) trailers and allow us to Dream Big as we expand our bike-powered, community bucket slinging operation here in Traverse City.

– Inked deals with some awesome Sponsors. If you see any of them around town make sure to give them a High Five for supporting C’sC and helping us to green our TC.

Thanks for reading and Compost On!
