OUR FACILITIES (| )
Out back and to the left is our worm composting tank, keeping our food waste out of landfills.
Our giant “clearstory” saves energy & makes prettier light than any bulbs.
State-o'-the-art spray foam insulation keeps us toasty in the winter ‘n cool in the summer.
Zone heating saves energy by only using it where folks are working.
Ned is packaging up fresh-roasted beans in our biodegradable bags.
Sunlight from the clearstory bounces up from our special reflective floor paint.
Organic, Fair Trade & Shade
All the beans being slow-roasted here are 100% Organic, Fair Trade, & Shade Grown!
Around this bend are the solar collectors that heat our radiant floors. (Especially comfy on the tootsies!)
Natural Day Lighting
Let the sunshine in! This “clearstory” we built into the plant saves us loads of power and gives us tons of sunlight.
500 gallons of harvested rainwater. There are another 4 tanks around the side, totaling 2,500 gallons. We use it to run our bathrooms and water our gardens.
All local deliveries are made by our veggie bus. Look for it on the road!
Reclamation & Reuse
Local artist, Jeff Hurr, made our gate using reclaimed materials.
