We are not playing small. Who wins by us playing it safe? Nobody!
WE CAN ALL WIN... when we have the audacity to do something that will make an impact on hearts, health and homes in our own communities.
That's what we are choosing to do!
Sooo, it all began BEFORE four of the children in the picture were even a thought.
We started Herby PoP as a ministry to help people in underserved, disenfranchised, and deserted communities take back their health by educating them to make delicious healthy choices, connect with the power of culinary herbs from around the world in beautiful and meaningful ways.
KINDA DIFFERENT RIGHT?
LONG STORY SHORT...
We started popping at home with the "Little Kettle That Could". We crafted over 16 global flavors USING ONLY ORGANIC KERNELS and NATURE'S FINEST HERBS. Started vending at marketplaces, pop-ups, and selling online. Hosted seminars, workshops, and retreats focused on health & wellness.
THE PEOPLE LOVE LOVED IT!
We recognized that the MORE we popped and sold, the MORE GOOD we were able to do for our community and our own family--which is currently a family of 8. 5 curious & creative homeschooled children (and 1 child who has left the nest, currently flying as a US Airman--and entrepreneur), and 2 parents who love them fiercely.
Sooo, Herby PoP became a B-Corporation. "B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy." --www.bcorporation.net
WE WERE DOING GOOD IN 'HOODS AROUND AMERICA.
We were renting kitchen spaces (oh and let us tell you, we have tried all sorts of shared kitchen arrangements)--only to discover, that no matter what, the air quality would destroy our popcorn before we could even toss it in the herbs.
Just think about it, humidity and popcorn have never been in a good relationship.
Once, we shared a popcorn kitchen...that was great. Then COVID came and killed that happy arrangement--nearly killed Herby PoP!
At this point we are like a kernel of popcorn sitting in a kettle, we are ready and have so much goodness to share---we just need the right conditions.
WE NEED OUR OWN MANUFACTURING SPACE!!!
YOUR SUPPORT will help us to purchase a space where we can keep the kettles crankin'. We will be able to create space where the community can "PoP In" to taste and see what is possible when you have FLAVOR, connect with global CULTURE, and focus on WELLNESS in the process.
***IF YOU UNDERSTAND NOTHING ELSE***
Herby PoP having it's own space is a LEGACY issue...
and we believe that with out you, our community, that legacy is limited.
Herby PoP having it's own space will bring local jobs.
Herby PoP having it's own space will bring beauty, culture, and global flavor to the 'hood.
Herby PoP is more than popcorn, it's an experience!
We are asking YOU to flex your philanthropic muscles and help us make our legacy PoP!
