C’sC + MYOI : Youth-Driven Community Composting

myoi

We’ve been fortunate to partner with the crew from Michigan Youth Opportunities Initiative (MYOI) on several occasions. Last year’s Neighborhood Compost Fiesta, July’s Community Compost Screening Work-bee at Oryana and a recent bike-powered bucket slinging session. They are a great group of young people. Eager to learn. Hard working. True compost champions.

Together we rode bikes, picked-up our neighbor’s kitchen scraps, screened Traverse City dirt, grew community compost and greened our neighborhoods. We talked about C’sC and our vision of small-scale, bike-powered, youth-driven community composting. We shared our start-up story of re-using/re-purposing/re-loving things (bike trailers, buckets, pallets, organic waste) to launch our social-entrepreneur-ish business. We encouraged them to become involved in their community and seize opportunities.

Carter’s Compost is definitely looking forward to more collaborations in the future.

Keep awesome, MYOI, and Compost On!
