This place consists of local organic farmers and people who are eco-friendly and recycle as much as we can in order to go green. We have a beautiful farm where we use mulch to grow vegetables. Basically we follow permaculture principles and do not use store bought fertilizers. We use a lot of food waste, such as eggshells, vegetables and soy bean powder from our local do-fu store.

It will be very meaningful and rewarding to join us, we like to think of teamwork rather than work. We produce very energetic vegetables and deliver to local buyers ! The reason we say “energetic” vegetables, ,is because we reduce the transportation distance from sellers to buyers. In addition, most of our vegetables are picked in the morning and buyers can receive them by that afternoon. We do not use ANY new plastic bags in the process . We realize that we are a tiny , very tiny piece of the big picture . However , we want to make every piece important in order to make tomorrow greener!
