Back to the Roots is on a mission to Undo Food. In a college class, we learned mushrooms could grow entirely on spent coffee grounds. After watching hours of how-to videos and turning our fraternity kitchen into a big science experiment, we eventually decided to give up our corporate job offers to instead become full-time mushroom farmers. What started as curiosity about urban farming has turned into a passion to Undo Food and reconnect families back to where it comes from.Ready-to-grow cans make indoor herb gardening fun and easy!

With biochar, it is never been easier to grow herbs indoors. Biochar is the charred remnants of agricultural waste through a process called pyrolysis, a technique mastered by Amazonian tribes centuries ago. Biochar is very porous and holds excess moisture to prevent over- or under-watering, aerates the soil for quick root growth, and increases nutrient absorption. No need for transplanting, drainage holes, or messy trays – the biochar does the work for you, making each herb garden kit simple and fun.
