Staff

Green Mountain Compost is supported by a terrific team of part time and seasonal staff, as well as the full staff of Chittenden Solid Waste District.

Norman Gordon

Norman Gordon

Norm is our senior equipment operator and compost ‘Brewmaster’ extraordinaire. After 30 years of dairy farming, Norm joined Intervale Compost/GMC in 1997 and has been in charge of blending our compost ever since. It’s Norm’s 2+ decades of experience and know how that keep the place running day-to-day. When not driving the loader, Norm enjoys snowmobiling, listening to music, and spending time with his family.

Dan Goossen

Dan Goossen

Dan started at Intervale Compost in 2003 and took on the role of General Manager starting in 2008. Dan spends a lot of time stuck in front of the computer but loves getting out to turn, screen, or bag compost whenever he gets the chance. When not at GMC, Dan enjoys beekeeping, growing his own food, home brewing, and spending time with his family.

Kim Stacey

Kim found her way to Green Mountain Compost in 2015 and fell in love with the “dirty” job! As Office and Production Coordinator, you can find her just about anywhere trying to make sure things run smoothly: taking temperatures, talking to haulers, climbing compost piles, loading trucks, running greenhouse trials, etc. When she’s not knee-deep in compost, she enjoys skiing, playing soccer, and spending time with her husband and 3 dogs.

Lachlan Ziegler

Lachlan started working at GMC in 2016 bagging our soil products, and later moved into a more involved role as Production Assistant and Equipment Operator. Although he spends most of his time in machines, he loves getting his boots on the ground and hands in the dirt. When not at work, Lachlan enjoys spending time in the mountains, playing board games, and searching for new swimming holes. 

Andrew Propst

As Heavy Equipment Operator, Soil Production Coordinator and Maintenance Lead, Andrew wears many hats. Having grown up on a farm, he’s often called on to fix one thing or another. When not blending, screening, watering, or turning compost, he enjoys adventurous travel and relaxing at home with his wife and dog.

Jack started at Green Mountain Compost in 2017 as a seasonal office assistant and has expanded his role to Production Assistant and Equipment Operator.
