So what is the Homegrown Collective exactly?
Well, I’m glad you asked!
I had the wonderful introduction to the Homegrown Collective when I received my first email from Mitchell. Everything about their vision, mission, and service to the members SCREAMS “we are in love with nourishing sustainability.”
Here’s what they had to say in a recent interview…
TELL US ABOUT YOUR COMPANY.
The Homegrown Collective is dedicated to providing our members with products that foster self-sufficiency and promote environmental stewardship and sustainability. It is made up of a community of Members from across the country and we are growing each day.
WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO START THE HOMEGROWN COLLECTIVE?
We had trouble finding a trusted source that not only vetted green and sustainable vendors, artisans and small businesses but also made them accessible. We felt that the “sustainable” consumer goods landscape was so disparate, confusing and a little bit intimidating for the “green-curious”. There was a void that we needed to fill. If we could provide a road map, some direction and a community to go to for questions to be answered and stories to be shared we could solve some of those issues and provide a great experience that was comfortable, educational and fun!
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING THE COLLECTIVE?
We sent out our February box: “Homegrown remedies and cure-alls” the timing was right because the country was gripped by both cold and flu – the emails I received from our Members were amazing. They were so grateful because they were not getting sick! In one case I was told of a mild cold that was caught, treated with the tinctures and Oregano oil and that cold went away as quickly as it came. It felt REALLY good to know that people were actually being empowered, with a few extra tools, to take a hold of their well-being and in this case make a real difference in people’s lives. We strive to do that each month and with every GREENBOX that goes out to our Members.
Mitchell had the August GREENBOX sent right to my doorstep – and the magic began!
I’ve seen plenty of “DIY Kits” in my day…but the Homegrown Collective…WOW! UNBELIEVABLE! SERIOUSLY AMAZING!
It was full of everything I needed to:
- start growing sprouts
- create an herbal Green Tea & Lavender Bath Soak
- make yummy Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Wonder Cups
And let me say…my babies (they’re still “babies” anywhere between 5-14 years old…right!?!) were absolutely in love! The 12 and 14-year-old called dibs on the creating and enjoying the Bath Soak. Then the little’s helped me with the wonder cups and the sprouts.
We can’t wait to see what next month will bring!
