  11. 11. Future Plans • Creating 501c3 and then potentially a member owned cooperative • Remove EarthTubs and compost in 3 bin systems now that I feel more confident about composting and have a good volunteer base • MORE EDUCATION! Partnering with local school or community garden for more secure siting & education opportunities • Partnering with Bennett Compost to allow for more security, growth and time to focus on • Local xmas tree collection for recycling • Share tricycle (and trailer if wanted) with other entrepreneurs as part of a pedal collective • Set up something in Philadelphia similar to the Soil Rebuilders ComposterTraining program in DC • Pet waste composting (anyone doing this?)
  12. 12. Challenges & Words ofWisdom • Figure out who you work best with • Establish partnerships if possible that help with volunteers or employees (schools, neighborhood groups, veterans groups, etc) • Make friends and be honest with neighbors • The majority of people who reach out about joining the Compost Coop are women and 95% of my volunteers are women. Keep this in mind when doing marketing. • Staffing • Site Issues – theft, neighborhood development • Insurance! Zip ties are amazingly versatile and helpful! Toilet bowl brushes are great for cleaning out compost bins
