Founded in 2007 by Kevin and Shana Good, Good Energy Solutions has earned a reputation for our expert reliable service, long workmanship warranties, and quality commercial and residential solar installations. We’re a family-owned and operated small business that aims to educate people about the benefits of solar power. Good Energy Solutions has made a commitment to providing our customers with solar installations that generate at least as much, if not more, energy that is quoted on our bids.
We have developed a unique set of perspectives and processes through our on-site workshop that allows designers and clients the ability to collaborate within our in-house style. We strive to maintain a fresh, forward-thinking perspective for our clients and partners. By hosting artists-in-residence, we aid in the development of their sculptural skills in the medium of wood, and they help us maintain our fresh perspective.
Exhibitions of work are held throughout the year.
Charitable giving is a foundation of our business. Working with non-profit organizations, a significant portion of our annual profits goes toward providing food, emergency aid, sustainable development and education to people in the U.S. and abroad. We also provide free seeds to hundreds of community and educational groups each year, because we believe that everyone should have access to nutrient-dense, delicious food, season after season.
Founder Jere Gettle started Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co. in 1998 as a hobby, and though it has since grown into North America’s largest heirloom seed company, we’ve never lost our passion for growing and sharing heirloom varieties.
Baker Creek offers one of the largest selections of 19th century heirloom seeds from Europe and Asia, and our catalogs now feature about 1,000 stunning heirloom varieties.
Our headquarters in Mansfield, Missouri includes trial gardens, greenhouses, a pioneer village and a seed store, all on the homestead where Jere started the business as a teenager. We also operate a seed store in Petaluma, Ca. Baker Creek began hosting festivals in 2000 as a way to bring gardeners, homesteaders and natural foods enthusiasts together to exchange ideas and seeds, learn from renowned experts, and enjoy vendors, old-time music and more. Our public events include the National Heirloom Exposition, which draws more than 20,000 people to Santa Rosa, Ca., each year, and our Spring Planting Festival and smaller monthly festivals at our Missouri farm throughout the growing season.
