Next Level Agriculture: Paradise Found.
Industrial agriculture, upon which our larger food system is based, has an enormous impact on global warming. Industrial agriculture uses chemical nutrients to feed plants rather than the soil. As soil health degrades, its capacity to sequester carbon is severely limited. One pathway to changing the larger food system is through regenerative agriculture, which brings life back to the soil and reconnects people to their food. Vermiponics, a type of regenerative agriculture, expeditiously reintroduces farming into cities and environments where food apartheid is endemic while diverting organic waste from landfills which significantly reduces GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions.
We are currently in discussions with a local school district to add the Agriculture and Natural Resources CTE (Career and Technical Education) pathway to the curriculum. We envision having a vermiponic farm and farmers’ market at every campus in the district. The farms and markets will create an urban farm microgrid to support an emerging New Agrarian Economy.
These structures can stack up to 4 of themselves on top of each other
With these vermiponic farms, the need for costly produce delivery is gone!
With our farms, produce can grow rapidly and pesticide free
Using composting drawers filled with worms, we make sure our process is sustainable
We are currently showcasing these revolutionary farms at farmers markets in the San Diego area. Come check us out!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
A Happy Farmer's Market Customer!
Here are the first lettuces that I got from Ruth Jordan and Renaissance Solutionz. They not only look yummy, but are yummy, and full of nutrients that are good for your body! I made some of the lettuce into my first salad in 4 1/2 months, because I have been on a shake only fast. What a way to introduce food back into my diet! You can see the salad I made in the second picture. The third picture is how I "plump up" chard and sweet kale that I also bought. I trim just a little off the stems and put them in a glass of water. They might take an hour or so to "unwilt" but these were in my car for about 3 hours after I bought them while I ran errands. See how nicely they are coming up? For the lettuce, just rinse it and put it in your fridge in a container or a plastic produce bag from the grocery store. I know you have saved lots of those lately!
This produce is fresh: you literally buy it while it is still growing, off the truck PUFFY)! You really can't get fresher than that! It's good to eat and good for you! Try some soon!
