Throw To Grow X Volcom Sustainable Surf Contest Film Premiere


Today, E1t1 Farms / Throw to Grow is very proud to bring you the official release of our latest creative film project with leading action sports brands Volcom and green event solutions company, Tr3ees.

“Volcom Pipe Pro 2013: Sustainable by Design”, filmed and directed by Nathan Peracciny looks at all that goes into launching a sustainable surf contest on the iconic North Shore of O’ahu. In the film, we look at everything from sourcing locally-grown foods, the bio-diesel powering the webcast to the Bokashi System composting food scraps. The film contains insightful interviews uncovering the passion that’s behind creating an event that does more than just get the adrenaline pumping.

A big thank you to Volcom / Volcom New Future and Tr3ees for giving us the opportunity to tell this story. Volcom have proven to be industry leaders in reducing their environmental impacts and benefiting the local communities that they come into contact with.

Also, a big mahalo to all the folks that helped make this film happen!

Refinery Project Launch Event RECAP

If you would not be forgotten, As soon as you are dead and rotten, Either write things worth reading, Or do things worth writing.

— Benjamin Franklin

This quote above from Ben Franklin speaks directly to that little engine burning hot at the core of my being that motivates me to do what I do every morning I wake up. This life is so temporary, and we need to live it to the fullest. We will all perish in the end. I believe life is about taking ACTION and DOING something. Anything is possible and there are no limitations, except those we place on ourselves. Dare to dream, and be even more daring by acting on those dreams.

One person doing just that is my friend Lan Thai. Lan is a chef, artist, creator and all around bad ass chick living up here on the North Shore of Oahu. She owns Happy’s Hawaii catering and is also co-founder, with Nick Wells (Two Crows Surfboards), of the Refinery Project (R/P). The R/P is an off-grid, creative collaborative space located inside the historic Waialua Sugar Mill on the North Shore. It’s build out of shipping containers and mostly re-used materials. Art and creativity run rampant throughout the space. As Lan describes it:

The Refinery Project takes the community to make it an awesome place and i hoped i have proven with the groundwork i’ve laid that i can really make this happen. This will be the best art space collaborative in the world. I will bridge art events from town to country. i will draw artists and creatives from all over the world. I will make it happen. This will be a prime Hawaii destination. The community will benefit from the awesome workshops and classes for all ages. Workshops including painting, music, cooking, gardening, homesteading, computers… just about everything but all in a collaborative and unique creative way to make learning fun.

Each One Teach One Farms is proud to be a partner in the R/P. We are helping out with the garden, implementing a Bokashi food waste recycling system and will be conducting classes and workshops there in the future.

This past weekend, the R/P held a launch party / fundraiser gala to raise funds for a solar system, shipping containers and other expansion supplies. There were over 100 people in attendance enjoying live art, music and amazing food. Thank you to everyone who came out to support and make this event a success.

If the Refinery Project is something you believe in, please make a donation. You can go visit the R/P Indiegogo Fundraiser Site to make a donation. We thank you.

Here are some pics from the event. All photos taken by Benjamin Pettus. You can view all photos from the event HERE.

The Honolulu Weekly also mentioned the R/P event in their latest issue. Go HERE to check it out.

New Video: Burying Your Bokashi Bucket Indoors?!

I made this quick video in response to a question I received via email from Sean in Hong Kong. He doesn’t have a yard to bury his Bokashi Bucket or an outdoor space to place a bin. Sean wanted to know about out burying the fermented food waste from his Bokashi Bucket inside his apartment using an enclosed bin. Check out the video to learn more!
