The Love of a Bohemian Mama: Back to the Roots
One of the most important things I want for my children, is for them to grow up in a sustainable world; for without sustainability, there is no future. I believe that in order for this to happen, we must begin at home, with applying sustainability practices to everything that we do, eat, and create.
In our home, we recycle, we support our local farms through our weekly home delivery of farm fresh, organic produce, we are conscious of our usage of water, gas, and electricity, and we try to only use products that are environmentally friendly. (We are currently working on developing a compost system.) It is our hope, that these awareness practices will be learned, valued, and passed on by our children.
I am always looking for new ideas and resources to help support a sustainable lifestyle; so when I recently visited our local Whole Foods, I was incredibly excited to discover a new company called Back to the Roots. Back to the Roots is a company whose mission and focus it is to bring sustainable, local farming right to your home, through the invention of their Mushroom Garden Kit.
The Mushroom Garden Kit contains everything you need to grow your own crops of fresh and tasty pearl oyster mushrooms directly out of its' box filled with 100% recycled coffee grounds. How cool and amazing is that!? And with three easy steps: Open, Mist, and Harvest, any child or adult can grow mushrooms, in their own home, and in as short as a week's time.
I am so excited to start harvesting our mushrooms;
and I know our boys are going to Love watching them grow!
