WE DEVELOP ENTREPRENEURS IN A LOCAL CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Nature has no word for "waste". Instead, the Earth accepts death every winter, and returns life in the spring. Transformation. We embody the same concept in creating value from human "waste" streams. Even humanure can be an incredible source of soil nutrients when placed in the first metre where the right decomposing bacteria are found. Unfortunately humans are the only species dumb enough to pollute our water sources with our own waste. Nevertheless, while we can't do much about that right now, we can and do develop the following entrepreneurs:

Waste
Waste Collectors
Waste collectors source community waste streams (alien vegetation, food and garden waste, paper etc.) to sell to composters.
Manures
Animal Husbandry
Shepherds sell manures to composters. They also benefit from meat and egg sales etc.
Compost
Composters
Composters sell to food and fibre growers, whilst also creating higher-value organic fertilisers, biochar etc.
Pollinators
Pollinators
Bee and butterfly keepers ensure pollination for local food growers. Incomes include honey sales, but also from renting bees to growers.
Growers
Food & Fibre Growers
We understand the best plants to grow for food and fibre in any environment, always asking what we can give the soil to maximise diversity and regenerative abundance.
Makers
Processors & Makers
Whether distilling essential oils, crafting clothes from hemp or flax, or producing healthy meals, we seek the highest form of value-add for each crop. All waste produced in the process goes back to the collectors.
Routes
Routes 2 Roots
Once established, we network all local businesses together as part of our Routes 2 Roots online app. As we develop each local entrepreneur along the heritage routes taken by mineworkers in the past, we will start to create a robust and healthy network of suppliers providing high quality, nutrient dense, and affordable food.
Tailings
Mine Waste Processing
Thrive has pioneered processes to reduce coal and gold tailings, turning liabilities into assets. Using Effective Microorganisms (EM), and other bio-, myco- and phyto- hyperaccumulators, we can extract high value minerals such as REE's, while reducing toxic loads to negligible amounts in compost designed for green manures and fibre crops.
