I've been contacted by a lot of people over the years that want to give me stuff. I usually turn them down because they want to give me things to try out that I would probably never use. I'm more of a purger than a hoarder so I don't want anything I can't use. I'm proud of the tiny amount I send to the landfill every week. But then comes a really cool company and sadly they don't want to give anything to me. They want to give something to one of you all. How could I refuse?
Back to the Roots started as an mushroom farm that grows oyster mushrooms on old coffee grounds. So they take an urban waste stream and turn it into mushrooms. Their own waste product becomes a soil amendment for gardens. Not only that but they help to support their local school and community gardens. You have to love a socially conscious business.
The best part is that they have started making mushroom kits for you to grow your own mushrooms and have offered to give one to one of my readers for free. So if you leave a message on this post I'll randomly pick one of you to receive it. I'm going to try to not respond to any of the comments to make the counting easier. Make sure that you leave your email address so I can contact you to get your mailing address if you win (I didn't ask but for now it is US entries only, though I've sent and email and maybe it will be expanded as I know I have a lot of readers from other countries). I'll randomly pick the winner next Friday and let you know who won.
And before I forget they have left a discount code if you want to buy one, mushrooms4me10 online, though you can get them at many Wholefoods too. I also probably have to say the legal blogger mantra. I'm not associated with them in any way and I've not received anything from them myself except to give a kit away to my readers.
Don't forget to leave an email address. Feel free to make it fairly unreadable by the bots. I can figure it out.
