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!
M2M Community Foundation is a 501c3. Nile Valley Aquaponics 100,000 Pound Food Project is a project under M2M Community Foundation. Nile Valley Aquaponics 100,000 Pound Food Project is to produce 100,000 Pounds of local fresh fish and vegetables to create healthier choices, health education, volunteer opportunities and economic stability in the urban core.
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.

We started Greenfield Robotics with a simple mission - to get the chemicals out of our food. Along the way we learned about an entirely new system of farming - known as carbon farming (or regenerative farming) - that leverages the power of nature to improve the productivity of soil and sequester greenhouse gases.
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.
Every year we divert more than 32 million pounds of food waste from area landfills, which is enough to cover fifteen football fields a foot deep. Since 2008, we’ve diverted more than 150 million pounds of food waste alone. Think of it as farm to table, to compost, and back again to the farm. We combine this food waste with a portion of the more than 150,000 cubic yards of brush brought to our facilities to create 54 million pounds of compost annually.
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
For over a decade, New Roots for Refugees has empowered families from the refugee community to start farm businesses by growing and selling produce through farmer’s markets, wholesale, and New Roots’ Farm Share.

VISIT WEBSITE Emily Niehaus is the founder of Community Rebuilds. The organization began in the mid-2000s, when founder Emily Niehaus, a loan officer at the time, realized that there was a lack of affordable housing in the Moab community. Many of the neighborhoods supplying “affordable” homes were comprised largely of manufactured housing, or trailer homes, built prior to modern building codes. Not only are these homes no longer financeable, they are also poorly insulated and induce high energy bills. With a lack of quality housing options available to the Moab workforce, replacing trailer homes with modest, natural, energy-efficient homes seemed like the logical solution.
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!

We are dedicated to making the most out of our local natural resources, specifically our neighborhood trees. Since 2005 we have been taking trees that are discarded as waste and sawing them up into usable lumber.
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.
THE URBAN LUMBER COMPANY
Owner Paola Legarre has worked in organic farming and marketing for the last 25 years. In looking to continue Paola’s commitment to organic farming and raising her family in Colorado’s clean air and wholesome way of life, her and her family moved to Palisade in 2005. Paola’s first lavender planting was in 2006, marking the beginning of Sage Creations Farm. As her lavender fields grew, she extended her product line to include farm-distilled essential oils, bath and body products, and plant starts.
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.
At Baker Creek, our mission is to provide the seeds of a sustainable food supply for everyone and keep heirloom varieties alive for future generations. We believe that farmers, gardeners and communities have the right to save their own seed, and in so doing preserve seed diversity and food security in an age of corporate agriculture and patented, hybridized or genetically modified seeds. All the seeds we sell can be saved, shared and traded, and we encourage people to save their own seed.
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.
