Alejandro Velez and Nikhil Arora at our urban farm in Oakland, California. The Back to the Roots Company Story Back to the Roots was founded by Alejandro Velez & Nikhil Arora during their last semester at UC Berkeley in 2009. Two months away from graduation, and heading into the corporate world of investment banking & consulting, they came across the idea during a class lecture of being able to potentially grow gourmet mushrooms entirely on recycled coffee grounds. Inspired by the idea of turning waste into wages & fresh, local food, they experimented in Alex's fraternity kitchen, ultimately growing one test bucket of tasty oyster mushrooms on recycled coffee grounds. With that one bucket, some initial interest from Whole Foods & Chez Panisse and a $5,000 grant from the UC Berkeley Chancellor for social innovation, they decided to forget the corporate route, and instead, become full-time urban mushroom farmers! Inspired by the idea of producing local, fresh food from what was an urban waste stream, Back to the Roots has since grown to create the Grow-Your-Own Mushroom Garden which lets anyone, across the country, grow their own gourmet mushrooms at home as well! A Gift that Keeps on Giving The company continues to grow and accomplish more than just the bottom line. Back to the Roots has: Diverted and reused more than 1 million pounds of coffee grounds from Bay Area landfills in 2011, Reached over 10,000 elementary school students through our “Inspire the Next” Facebook campaign, Sustained 10 East Bay school gardens and, Created 31 urban, green collar jobs in the community.
