Climate Grains

Anyone who knows my history will know that helping to protect and rebuild our natural environment is among my highest goals.

I'm proud to announce that I am now helping to develop and market a line of native plant seeds and grains - as well as the flour derived from them.  We are calling these Climate Grains.

Climate Grains and the flour derived from them originate from native prairie grasses. Native prairie grass seed traditionally was eaten, but its use has been forgotten.

The protein content of Climate Grain flour is higher than wheat flour. So to is the
fiber, while carbohydrates are lower. And, they are gluten free.

Why call it “Climate Grains”? An acre of native grass grown in Southern Wisconsin can sequester
over 10 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually, without irrigation, fertilizer, herbicides, or pesticides. The
grasses long lived deep roots put the carbon dioxide back in the soil---where it belongs, rebuilding soil organic matter.

So, imagine being able to enjoy a Climate Cookie™  or a Climate Bar™, while helping the environment and contributing to new climate-friendly projects?

Welcome to our new Climate Grains.  I look forward to sharing more soon
