Moving Forward Statement

4/6/2020

Dear customers and stakeholders,

The time for change is now and we need you to help us “Change the world one seed at a time”.

In order to meet that commitment, we will be donating all produce moving forward to local charities and hunger relief agencies. We would like to acknowledge everyone that is taking the time to focus on the betterment of the larger US.

After weeks of quarantine and reflection, we are left with one large question. 

How can Super Micro Greens continue to help the community and the food system as a whole?

Our business was founded on the pursuit of developing systems to help others enter the field of growing with the best tools and knowledge that we can provide. In recent years our production has taken priority. The time is now to reach back to our roots and organize our knowledge to share with the masses.

By partnering with our larger community we will be developing educational tools to facilitate knowledge of our food systems from seed to plate. We will be doing this through content in the form of lectures, quizzes, kits etc. Providing education can change peoples lives!

We all can grow together through knowledge and food production. More information to be released on 4-20-2020. Our goal is to bring awareness to food and nutrition while enabling small scale growing anywhere. 

How can you help? 

  • By promoting our content and other growers/educators. 
  • Growing your own victory garden 
    • Provide stability to your own community’s food system 
  • Learning more about how, where and by who our food is grown. 
  • We will be accepting donations*

*While we are filing for our 501c3 status our hope is to find a partner charity to collect donations for us.    Donations can still be made, but while we are waiting for status they will not be tax-deductible.

Donations can be sent to: paypal.me/SuperMicroGreens 
or by mail: Super Micro Greens, 1040 E New York St, Indianapolis, IN,46202

What will Super Micro Greens be doing in the coming months?

  1. Producing food to donate to local charities and hunger relief agencies
  2. Producing educational content to be shared publicly free of charge
  3. Develop an educational kit for schools/homes/businesses
  4. Fundraising to provide above free services
    1. Creating fundraising campaigns for future services
  5. Applying for grants to increase the scope and reach of the educational content

Some examples of past educational materials and relationships:

Dear customers and stakeholders,

In our history, we have never suspended service. This is an unprecedented moment in history. We take our commitment to feeding the community very seriously. The community’s health takes priority over food production at this time.

We are saddened to suspend service due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is our privilege to supply healthy and nutritious foods in a safe and sustainable manner, that being said it is our civic duty as Hoosier Farmers to suspend our service for a minimum of 14 days. During this time we will be cleaning all of our facilities. 

The situation with Covid-19 is evolving fast. We have been taking every possible action to protect ourselves and our customers. After the 14-day period, we will release an update about our next steps. Please take every possible precaution in your own lives to minimize the spread and impact of this virus. 

This, along with the fact that the majority of our customers have suspended service or canceled orders, means the continued operation of the facility for production, at this time, is not viable. 

During this time (March 21st – April 4th) we will be re-building our business model to come back stronger than before. 

The surge in home delivery is exciting and could be a great market for us. For home delivery, we have been working with Market Wagon and Indy Community Food Co-op. In the coming weeks, we will be expanding these partnerships.

We sold on Market Wagon and Indy Community Food Co-op this week, to release the product we currently had, and had our best sales to date with them.  We look forward to supplying again in the near future! Stick with us as we ensure the safety of our fellow Hoosiers.

Please keep a lookout for updates from us about this fast-evolving situation.

Please keep us in the loop with your business and any changes you are making.

We will be donating our remaining produce to Second Helpings. (or any other food rescue plan that we see can get our product to those that need it)

While operations are suspended we will be doing a deep clean and sterilization of all our equipment and facility. 

  • Deep cleaning all surfaces within the grow area & other farm areas
  • Leaving all surfaces untouched for 4-7 days after cleaning

During this shutdown time, we will still have costs for the cleaning and upkeep of the physical farm facility.  This being said we humbly ask that if at this time you have the ability to extend a helping hand in this time of transition, it would be greatly appreciated.  We fully intend to serve the needs of our communities to the best of our abilities, and that means taking this time of rest and wellness. Together we will stay strong!

Donations can be sent to: paypal.me/SuperMicroGreens

Please stay safe self-quarantine if possible and wash your hands. 

Help grow our community one seed at a time.
