  • SOLAR ROOFTOP DIY

    Solar energy is clean, efficient, sustainable … and expensive. Or is it? Technology is quickly becoming attainable for the middle class. Rather than leasing panels from one of those home solar startups (and letting them reap the financial benefits), why not join the thousands who are doing it themselves? With energy costs only set to increase in the future, now is the time to make the switch to solar and start selling power back to the grid.

  • REISHI FRUITING KIT

    Also known as the “Mushroom of Immortality” or Ling-Chi, there are a few species of Reishi mushrooms native to temperate climates, and this is the prettiest we have found. This mushroom is beautifully lacquered with brilliant yellow new growth and white tips, like the sun setting perfectly, this mushroom is living art. A potent medicinal mushroom, Reishi's powers range from sugar regulation for diabetics to cancer fighting properties. This strain is proving to be a potent natural antibiotic as well, exhibiting inhibition against Strep and Staph, making it useful for throat sprays and soaps or cosmetics. Outdoors this mushroom grows on oak, cherry and maple logs, half buried the best, but can adapt to other hardwoods. We also fruit this one indoors very easily on sterilized sawdust, fruiting in 14-21 days! This mushroom is corky and bitter, so we prefer to dry them fresh and grind them up in a blender to make a fluffy fiber, then make extracts.
