Vashon-Maury Food Bank Over-choyed! 🥬🥬🥬🥬
Vashon Bioenergy Farm (VBF) has kicked off 2022 with an exciting update to our continued journey with the island community! After another successful harvest of bok choy from our rooftop greenhouse, we are excited to welcome the spring equinox and longer days in the upcoming growing season. In accordance with our mission towards #zeroemissions #zerowaste and #zerohunger, this harvest was donated to Vashon-Maury Community Food Bank and was produced in our community scale system that takes local food processing waste and turns it into both ProBiotic Food (PBF) for soil & plants and Organic Renewable Natural Gas (ORNG) for vehicles....
Integrated Food & Energy System
In January 2021 we completed an epic greenhouse integration kicking off a new partnership called the Alegría Farmacy. We're now demonstrating year-round growing of regenerative organic, ultra-nutrient dense produce, along with the efficacy of digestate made from fermented food waste, like our ProBiotic Food (PBF) for plants. Regenerative organic market farmers like Forest Garden Farm using PBF are beginning to see true benefits, while avoiding true costs.
