A Family, Beauty, Health and Lifestyle Blog
In Oregon, where I live, it always seems to be raining in the spring. I yearn for warmer weather when I can plant my garden, but that probably won't be for awhile. Until then, I can enjoy healthy and delicious food that I can grow myself in my kitchen with Back to the Roots indoor gardening sets.
Back to the Roots was founded by two young men during their last semester in college. What started with urban mushroom farming in Oakland, CA has turned in to a fun line of Ready to Grow and Ready to Eat products to help reconnect kids and families with their food.
Sometimes, we want to grow food ourselves, taste the absolute freshness, and show kids how mushrooms or herbs grow. And at the other times, we're busy, running out the door, and we just want to eat something - like breakfast cereal - that's already been cooked for us. But we believe the underlying trust, transparency, and consciousness shouldn't change from the produce aisle to the grocery aisle, or from ready to grow to ready to eat. We believe in a future where all food comes from the kitchen, not a lab; and where R&D teams aren't biochemists, but our grandparents.
I got the chance to review Back to the Roots Organic Mushroom Garden Kit.
Grow gourmet, organic oyster mushrooms right out of the box in just 10 days! Just open the box, mist with water, and harvest 10 days later. The Mushroom Farm lasts for months in the box unopened, making a great gift item for kids, families, foodies & chefs! Includes:
- organic plant-based soil (can grow multiple crops!)
- oyster mushroom spawn
- spray mister
- BONUS: organic heirloom tomato seeds to grow with your composted mushroom kit
I was in awe of how quickly my mushrooms grew. They are so delicious and it is wonderful for me to know that my mushrooms are GMO free and organic. It has been the perfect science project for my son, Braxton to see how mushrooms grow. He never liked mushrooms before, and now he loves them!
