Foodiacs Features Back to the Roots Kit...

About Foodiacs:
"The newest online community for food enthusiasts  announces its September 6 website launch. Foodiacs is tailored to people who are passionate about food and will connect them with product offerings that are exclusive to the site. Each Foodiacs offering will be available for only a limited time, and at a limited quantity, and will not match any offer at any other online retail outlet.

“We recognize the quality and passion that goes into creating these artisan foods and want to bring lesser known but high quality items to the forefront of the food community in a unique way,” said Katie Clegg, chief eating officer of “Foodiacs is about helping companies get recognition for innovation and outstanding ingenuity – but more importantly it’s about connecting consumers, who are Foodiacs like us, to gourmet food artisans, epicurean products, specialty kitchen equipment and, ultimately, new experiences they’ll love.”

Foodiacs has exclusive product offerings, or events, booked through March 2012. The events will launch every one to two weeks on Tuesdays at 12 p.m. and will feature a variety of unique food-related products. Starting in 2012, the site will also connect “Foodiacs” with local food industry leaders for exclusive tastings, culinary tours and educational experiences.

The first event to be featured is Back to the Roots, a grow-it-yourself box garden of pearl oyster mushrooms. The event will run from September 6 at 12:00 p.m. ET - September 20 at 11:59 a.m. ET. Each “Foodiac” that purchases two boxes will receive a third box and classroom curriculum to be donated to the school of their choice.
Mushrooms for Classrooms: Three Kits for $40!
What better company to kick-off the launch of Foodiacs? Gourmet. Sustainability. Education. Local. These concepts embody the essence of Back to the Roots and the Foodiacs community. Not to mention, Nikhil and Alejandro are just plain awesome guys. They’ve created the Grow-Your-Own Mushroom Garden Kit, allowing anyone to grow their own gourmet mushrooms at home and produce local, fresh food from recycled coffee grounds. In just 10 to 14 days—with very simple care and maintenance—this kit produces up to 1.5 pounds of gourmet pearl oyster mushrooms. It’s really pretty cool, and once you hear the story behind the company, you’ll love them even more. Back to the Roots has helped families grow over 250,000 lbs. of fresh food at home in 2011 and sustained 10 urban school & community gardens by donating their premium soil amendment.

To expand on the amazing work that Back to the Roots has done, our exclusive Foodiacs offering allows our members to purchase two Grow-Your-Own Mushroom Garden Kits and receive a third kit for free to be donated to a school of your choice. When you purchase this offer, you’ll receive a total of three kits along with a classroom curriculum. Donate one, two, or all three! We want to help kids all over the country, and especially the ones in your life, have an incredible hands-on experience learning about growing their own food and about innovative ways to reduce and reuse waste. We’re pretty sure this is the best thing ever to come out of a fraternity kitchen!"
