We now have two options available:
1. An 80 acres Ranch Development Laboratory near Siletz, Oregon where we experiment and develop new products.
2. A Hwy 101 frontage selling and manufacturing location, on the beautiful Oregon Coast, to test the marketability of our products.
We need assistance at the Laboratory Ranch and at the Manufacturing Facility. You can be part of the Sustainable Permaculture process in one of two ways:
1. If you want to learn about and how to manufacture our products for two weeks: we will provide a furnished 1 bedroom with private bath next to our manufacturing building with a Permaculture garden. The house is located in the suburbs of Lincoln City, Oregon, on the beautiful Oregon Coast, on a ½ acre on Hwy 101.
You are welcome to come to Lincoln City and help us make TomatoBarrels for two (2) weeks. You would not receive any pay and have to provide your own food, we only provide housing. You would work on our products 35 hours per week. At the end of this period you will be given a License to make and market any of our recyclable Sustainable Permaculture Products for yourself wherever you go and live. You may copy our manufacturing and marketing system in every detail. You receive 100% of all the money on the products you make and market.
The TomatoBarrels - You Build $53 – We Build $80
A TomatoBarrel is a portable system that takes advantage of the heat storing capacity of the water reservoir and of its portability to enable a longer growing season and minimal need for watering.
Tomato production on the Oregon Coast is hard because of the large amount of cold Oregon rain; the Coast's ground is cold until usually June or early July. With a TomatoBarrel a person can start planting as soon as you have your container barrel.
The containers are mobile and can sit anywhere -- in a community garden, on a deck, in a yard, on a sidewalk -- they can be easily located in the sunniest area throughout the season. Because they are not in contact with the ground and there are 22 gallons of water stored in the bottom, they stay warmer. They only need to have water replenished about once a week. They have 32 gallons of Wicking Material in the top of the barrel.
Our Secret is Wicking Material! TomatoBarrel growing varies significantly from traditional in-ground growing. Unlike conventional soil where worms and other insects provide "channels" for natural aeration, the growing material in the TomatoBarrel requires a loose, porous mix to replicate the aeration process. A TomatoBarrel requires a lot of material (32 gallons).
2. If you have a RV, 5th Wheel or Travel Trailer we will provide full hookup with Septic, Water and Electricity in exchange for 21 hours of labor a week on any or all of the following projects:
You may stay as long as you want, when you leave, you will be given a License to make and market any of our recyclable Sustainable Permaculture Products for yourself wherever you go and live. You may copy our manufacturing and marketing system in every detail. You receive 100% of all the money on the products you make and market.
