Beadle is co-founder and co-owner here at Compost Nashville. After spending the past couple of years trying to figure out the best way to coexist with this fast paced world, he knew he wanted to find a way to be more in touch with the Earth and to get back to the important parts of life. For him, the most important things are food, friends, and music. Well, Tennessee is a rich place to grow all of these things and the better the quality of the ingredients you begin with, the better the results! That’s what inspired him to start learning about composting and how we can all be part of creating fertile soil with which we can grow delicious food.
Having grown up in Nashville, Micah went on to study International Business and Spanish at Tennessee Tech. While serving in the Peace Corps in Paraguay, he was assigned to help with the business practices of a Farmers Cooperative that grew and processed Yerba Mate. Working alongside those farmers he was introduced to various forms of improving the soil, and they all had their foundation in using compost to increase their production on their farms. At Compost Nashville he focuses on working with commercial clients who want to implement a composting system at their company, including food waste diversion and a full suite of compostable goods.
