We are passionate about mushrooms!
The Mushroomery is a family-owned, certified organic mushroom farm located in the foothills of the Oregon Cascade Mountains. We grow gourmet and medicinal mushrooms, create mushroom powders, package dried mushrooms, and assemble several 'grow your own' indoor and outdoor mushroom kits.
We also harvest wild mushrooms throughout the year in the Oregon Cascade and Coastal Mountain ranges.
We use biodynamic farming practices and purchase growing mediums from local farmers. The health of people and the earth are our first priority and that is why we started our farm. Also, we love mushrooms!
Nile Valley Aquaponics project started construction in Oct. 2015 on 29th and Wabash in Kansas City Missouri on two vacant lots donated by long time residents and community leaders Harrel Sr. And Myrtle Johnson. Three other conjoining vacant lots added and purchased from Land Bank of the City of Kansas City Mo. Nile Valley Aquponics was able to take distressed vacant lots and turn it into a urban oasis, which has been well received by its community, neighbors, and the City of Kansas City Mo.
Visitors, or ‘WWOOFers’, spend about half of each day helping out on a farm, learn about organic agriculture, and receive free room and board during their visit.
WWOOF-USA links you to 1667 organic host farms in the USA.
The challenge was that carbon farming didn't scale without heavy use of agrichemicals. Until we came along.
We are developing robots that enable farmers to implement carbon farming on a massive, global scale - economically, and without agrichemicals.
This is an entirely new way to farm.
Our Mission to produce the highest quality organic products and service from a valuable resource (Organic Waste).
We do this by installing passion in our team to make responsible uses or our natural resource, as well as lead the way to educate and empower our youth, family, and friends, to make a difference in their community and environment
Emily was interested in straw bale building because of its simplicity, beauty, and low-carbon impact. The main difficulties with this building typology are the labor intensity it demands and the lack of straw bale building expertise in the construction realm. The answer: create a natural building internship program that sources volunteer labor. Most courses or workshops offered on natural building are extremely costly, thus creating a barrier for people to enter the field. Community Rebuilds provides the opportunity to learn these skills while supplying a free construction crew for the build, making straw bale building possible and our homes more affordable!
These trees have ended up as beautiful coffee tables, entertainment centers, cabinets and almost any other thing that you can imagine to be made from wood. We are proud to be able to offer to Kansas City a resource that has been previously neglected: the reuse of our urban trees.
Paola and her husband Bobby manage the farm and maintain their lavender fields and cherry orchard using sustainable farming practices: nourishing soil life, not using herbicides or synthetic fertilizers and encouraging beneficial insects through diversified plant hedge rows, companion planting and insect releases.
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.
