Our Story

harvestGreenThumb Compost started as an idea during the summer of 2009. You may remember it as the hottest summer recorded for this area. Tom went outside to turn his compost pile with a hay fork. The heat and effort it took to turn the pile was enough to make him realize that composting was not enjoyable as advertised. So he spoke aloud: “Why can’t someone do this for me?” He instantly realized that many people were probably asking the same question. In the winter of ’09, the business plan for GreenThumb was born. And we have completed 2 years of operations.


At GreenThumb, we value individual needs and desires. One principal that we stand for is that every family is different. We strive to give you what you want at an affordable rate. Now you can compost at home without all the rodents and smells in your backyard (not to mention that danged heat!!)
