Networking & Connecting, Sharing Resources & Information, Finding & Posting Events
2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
Phoenix Organics Eco-Building and Garden Supply is at home on it's beautiful 2 acre lot at 4543 S. Phoenix Highway on the South side of Phoenix Oregon. Our main website is still under construction and will be open soon. If you would like to contact us please call 541-535-1134.

The Phoenix Organics owners originally opened an organic center in Grass Valley, CA. in 2000. They moved the center to the Rogue Valley in 2002 because it is a perfect place for eco-friendly businesses as so many people here are dedicated to living a more sustainable lifestyle and that is what we are about too.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
Phoenix Organics Eco-Building and Garden Supply is a locally owned company. We've been supplying organic soil, soil amendments, compost, and other organic gardening supplies since 2002. In 2008 owners teamed up with Jeremy Blau and created Conscious Earthworks and the Vital Earth line of soils and soil amendments.

The building department (run by co-owner Chris Bourne) which opened in 2004 specializes in green building supplies for residential and commercial use, non-toxic paints and finishes, sustainably harvested wood, custom counters, cabinets, sinks and over 200 natural flooring materials. In 2008 we added a natural bedroom and bathroom furnishings department.

We are also home to the Rising Phoenix Bio-Fuels Station. Rising Phoenix is owned by David Tourzan and is open 24/7 for credit card purchases, and M-F, 9:00-5:30 and Sat. 10-4 for cash purchases.
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
We are committed to being an educational resource for the community and consistently offer different workshops on several topics, such as how to use the different eco-friendly products we sell, e.g. American Clay natural wall finishes, Ecoprocote - commercial and residential non-toxic, soy based finished for concrete, wood and metal. We will also offer workshops on the following topics throughout the year: Permaculture, Organic Gardening, Construction Practices for Sustainability, Soil Fertility, Cob Building, LEEDs Certification, and many more.

We will announce upcoming workshops on our ARC page.

Every year we host a Free Sustainability Faire called The Little Green Home Show at the Phoenix Organics Showroom. We are currently organizing the 2010 show for May 15ht and 16th so keep your eyes open for updates.

We put on this expo to highlight the work of businesses and individuals in our community who are focused on sustainability and a high quality product and/or service geared toward (but not limited to) the building (residential and commercial), gardening/landscaping, farming/food production, home furnishing and bio-fuels industries. Booth Spaces are available for the 2010 show. The Show dates are May 15th and 16th.
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions have you been exploring?
Come to our showroom to see our bookstore. We have over 70 titles of our favorite books on many, many topics, from organic gardening, to compost tea to green building.

We Have Five Years To Save Ourselves From Climate Change, Harvard Scientist Says | Forbes

The level of carbon now in the atmosphere hasn't been seen in 12 million years, a Harvard scientist said in Chicago Thursday, and this pollution is rapidly pushing the climate back to its state in the Eocene Epoch, more than 33 million years ago, when there was no ice on either pole. "We have exquisite information about what that state is, because we have a paleo record going back millions of years, when the earth had no ice at either pole. There was almost no temperature difference between the equator and the pole," said James Anderson, a Harvard University professor of atmospheric chemistry best known for establishing that chlorofluorocarbons were damaging the Ozone Layer.

Scientists Keep Warning About The Dangers of 5G; Will We Listen? | Gaia

Over 180 scientists and doctors in almost 40 countries are warning the world about 5G health risks. “Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe” spells it out quite succinctly: “We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF)… and has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.”

A summary of its findings, which was approved by representatives from the United States and 131 other countries, was released Monday in Paris. The full report is set to be published this year.
