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!

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!
“Growing your own food is one of the most radical and revolutionary acts that you can possibly do.” Matthew Lynch
In this installment of the Throw To Grow Profile Series, we meet Matthew Lynch. Founder of The Asia-Pacific Center for Regenerative Design and permaculture guru. Matthew Lynch has lived several lives. Once a banker, Matt built a small fortune in his 20’s and then lost it in the economic shit storm of 2006/07. Matthew saw oppurtunity where many of us saw devastation. Matt did what most of us dream to do. He traveled the world.
