How SCORE helped.

SCORE mentor Alan Shaver began working with Tyler Frank just after the business idea was conceived. Together they determined the business start-up essentials including the corporate form that GtG maintains today. Tyler also benefited from a number of SCORE workshops with the hands-on guidance of Alan. With the recent growth of the company, Tyler and Alan have been focusing on assessing the option of franchising.

How Did Your Business Get Started?

 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.
