Garbage to Garden

Garbage to Garden was created to address the challenge of efficiently and effectively utilizing residential composting within an urban setting. Tyler Frank, founder, and his roommate were discussing the challenges involved with composting in their 2nd floor city flat and six weeks later, Garbage to Garden (GtG) was born.

In 2011, Ms. Shelly Herbst was accepted into the SBA‘s E200 Program. During this time, SCORE volunteer, Vic Berniclau, came to one of our sessions to discuss financial matters.

He was an excellent speaker and clearly understood financing. As such, Ms. Herbst scheduled a meeting with him to conduct a general review Marron’s financial reports as

well as to specifically discuss the pros and cons of using the accrual method for Marron’s financial reports.  After review of Marron’s financial statements, Mr. Berniclau verified that Marron’s financial administrator was doing a great job, that our financial affairs were in order.  A discussion was also held regarding the accrual vs. cash method

for reporting.

Ask SCORE
          My beauty supply business has grown significantly in the short time we’ve been in 
business and I’m considering hiring an accountant. How do I find the right one?

          There are many responsibilities that come with being a small business owner, and everyone is critical to maintaining profitability and promoting growth. You can’t risk letting a deadline slip or overlook an administrative requirement, yet there are only so many hours in the
day to get things done.
