“At Progressive Farms, we’re interested in changing the conversation of conventional agriculture and raising the bar on the status quo of growing and farming.
The mission of Progressive Farms is to grow clean local vibrant beyond organic food free of toxins and GMO’s, provide open source information to develop premium products and services that allow people to take control of their own personal agriculture, connect and decentralize our food system, bring focus towards the qualitative value of food and grow as much of it as we can!
In order to accomplish this we create products that come from farms and artisan ingredients, that are biologically, minerally and energetically diverse, and that are potentized and perform beyond the human ability to manufacture.
We are interested in affecting social change through beyond organic food, on all levels. We have a farming division, a BioEnergetic consulting division and a sales division that acts as the global distributor of the Vortex Brewer® system.”
Introduction to CEED/NTP
Chances are if you’ve found Nourish the Planet, it’s because you’re asking some big questions. Questions like: How do we feed 8 billion people by 2030? How can we heal a broken economic system? How can we live sustainably on a planet with fewer and fewer resources? What can I do about it?
We think there’s a fundamental and elegant answer to these questions – sustainable agriculture. Or more simply put, food. At Nourish the Planet, we are pioneering low-tech, replicable, sustainable methods for all types of food production. Our team is constantly developing new and exciting innovations in the realm of sustainable agriculture. Our two campuses have greenhouses, converted warehouses, pastures, farm fields, urban lots, and other infrastructure that are used to test these new innovations and to improve methods. Our focus is in aquaponics, aquaculture, vermiculture and sustainable ranching; but our larger vision is to produce food in a way that is environmentally nurturing and economically sound.
If we are going to enable ecopreneurs to Teach the World to Feed Itself, we have to provide opportunities to teach. One dollar out of every four that is generated by NTP’s Programs will go to our HOPE (Helping Other People Ecolonomically) for the Hopeless program where we help local community groups and distant hungry people groups to learn how to feed themselves.

Nourish the Planet is launching a business accelerator that will change the face of education and ecopreneurship. We call it The Best of the BEST (Best Ecolonomic Student Training) Entrepreneurial Program (BOTB). These fellows will embark on an intensive one year program with the goal of having a cash flowing, low-tech green business upon completion. Read more…
