CONSULTANCY 

Composting & Food Growing:

For households, businesses and societies. 

Composting and growing nutritious organic food go hand in hand; they are part of the same closed loop. With so many ways to succeed and fail, starting up this system on your own can be intimidating. Let us assess your property, access to materials, sunlight, seeds & needs and devise a sure-fire plan for how to get your home, business or society in the successful cycle of growing and composting. What an empowering change! 

Convert your Home to Zero-Waste:

Let’s create a solid plan so your whole family can get on board with this necessary shift. 

 

Every home has different inputs, outputs and needs; that means your solution must be 100% tailored to your unique family. Get you up and running with: composting, turning food waste into cleaners + vinegars, making all household cleaning and beauty products, greener strategies for purchasing and preparing food and making your home energy efficient with heating and cooling. Girls and women will learn all about sustainable menstruation too! 

Probiotics & Fermentation:

For restaurants, chefs, hospitality:

Impress diners with new and inventive ferments. Equip your team with all the fundamentals, benefits, troubleshooting and possibilities of vegetable, grain, dairy, and alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverage ferments. Gut healthy foods are the newest food trend, and for good reason! Learn to prepare food with extra umami & unique flavors that leave your guests feeling good instead of bloated and heavy!

For families & households: 

Become an expert on family friendly ferments! Getting good bacteria into your kids’ diets will help them throughout life - fermented foods boost immunity, mood, and behavior.  Everything from: sprouted and fermented grains, porridges, breads, baked goods; homemade sodas and other probiotic drinks; vegetable ferments; drinkable dairy ferments; even probiotic popsicles! 

Kitchen Garden for Schools:

When children learn about food, growing and our innate connection to the earth through what we eat, that becomes a foundation for the rest of the adult lives. We need more kids who care about the earth, care about farmers and understand the cycle of food & waste. Schools always have underutilized outdoor paved spaces that can be converted to productive, thriving growing spaces. Let us assess your growing spaces, create a comprehensive plan and recommend curriculum that ties directly into the garden.

Kunal & I are available to also run lesson and sessions with kids on all environmental topics from soil biology to climate change.

Kids thrive with kitchen-garden curriculums in schools; the evidence is all over the world. Be a leader in kids education and get growing!

"Food after all is life… Every time you eat, you can make a massive change. You can throw your weight behind ecosystems, behind diversity, behind farmers. Or you can throw your weight behind greed, behind super profits, behind ill health that is killing both this planet and its people. Make your choice. It’s easy"  - Vandana Shiva
