Carts and tools overview

  1. 1. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  2. 2. Carts and Tools We solve the growing need for a new generation of environmentally sensitive, technologically advanced and highly effective tools fueled by the rapid growth and needs of market growers and the “greening” of backyard farmers. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  3. 3. Mission “Create innovative and usable products, keep our footprint as sustainable as possible, direct our business to solve the market growers’ needs and change things one small farm at a time.” 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  4. 4. Why Does This Matter? "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." ~ Margaret Mead 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  5. 5. Why Does This Matter? Roger Doiron, “gardening activist” said it best in his 2011 TEDX talk. My subversive (garden) plot. Roger accurately states that “Food is power” and that we, the people, need to take that power back. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  6. 6. Why Does This Matter? You can find Roger’s TEDX talk here. http://on.ted.com/RDoiron Carts and Tools believes that by supporting the Market Grower and the Backyard Farmer, we can change the world. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  7. 7. Why Does This Matter? All of us can help in our own way. We can assist each other to reclaim our own food supply; ridding ourselves of multi-national corporations that care about nothing but profits and bringing the power of food back home. Where it belongs. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  8. 8. Where Does it Start? It starts with… Small Scale Market Growers and those of us that purchase their bounty through a CSA or Farmers Market. Backyard Farmers who “grow their own” and save the world a carrot at a time. One less carrot shipped from who knows where, sprayed with who knows what? 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  9. 9. The Market Grower The market grower is the future of local and sustainable food, with new small farms, 10 acres and less of crops leading the change. The size and growth of this segment is significant. 111,839 new small farms since 2002, over 6000 active farmers markets, an increase of 53% in 10 years. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  10. 10. The Market Grower An estimated 6500 CSA’s (consumer supported agriculture) initiatives exist today up from 2 in 1986. Famers Markets are stronger than ever. A major growth segment is the young farmer demographic, who embraces new technology, and is often farming the urban boundaries of cities. Dig in! 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  11. 11. The Market Grower The market grower is constrained in their choices for quality constructed tools and equipment. Tools that lower labor costs, reduce dependency on herbicides and contributes to sustainable agriculture practices. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  12. 12. The Backyard Farmer The backyard farmer occupies the top level in a home gardening market reported in 2008 to consist of 36 million households spending over $2.5 billion. That is lot of money to spend wisely. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  13. 13. The Backyard Farmer The average backyard farmer is 45+ years of age, college educated, middle-class, is environmentally aware and focused on sustainable, healthy food. Home gardening increased 12% in 2009. But increasingly younger people are finding space to grow. Patios, decks and urban lots are becoming wonderful places for this movement. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  14. 14. The Backyard Farmer These backyard, patio, empty lot farmers are leading the growth of the “Green Economy.” Environmentally sustainable, socially just, and locally rooted comprise their 3 pillars of beliefs. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  15. 15. Tipping Over the Cart We believe in creating tools that help people grow their own food. This helps the small-scale farmer to provide local, natural, organic food to their local community. That helps set us free and take back our power. Yes, we are a for-profit business, but. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  16. 16. Tipping Over the Cart We are for the profit of the community first and foremost. Sustainable, green, good for you, local, natural, organic or what every you want to label it. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  17. 17. Tipping Over the Cart New and old farmers alike should be able to make a living on small-scale acreage. One shouldn't have to “go big” in farming to make a living. A good living we think. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  18. 18. Tipping Over the Cart We need to slow then stop the unsustainable reliance on fossil fuels and the host of products created with them. We need to shut down companies which are truly seeking to dominate our food supply which can only lead to their controlling each of us. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  19. 19. Tipping Over the Cart Our youth should know what a real carrot tastes like and know where food really comes from. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
  20. 20. Tipping Over the Cart Wow, how does a start-up company do that, you might ask? By tipping over the cart….. Disruptive innovation…creating tools that enable. 2013 Carts and Tools Technology, Inc. www.cartsandtools.com
