We're excited to present West Michigan's 2nd Annual Compost Challenge. Building on the success of last year's event, we're inspiring local students as well as home composters and professionals in the industry to bring their very own "black gold" to compete to see who can make the best compost. At Organicycle, we believe there's both an art and science to compost, and our mission is to inspire our community to think differently about organic waste. Think you've got what it takes when it comes to compost? Sign up in one of our divisions below. Need more information? Access some of our resources below or reach out to us at
