Pure Intentions Wheatgrass & School of Energy
Hello, I am Kathy Evans. I own and operate Pure Intentions, The Wheatgrass Growers and School of Energy.
I began as an organic herb farmer in 1996. At the time, the Akron area was experiencing the dawning of a renewed interest in eating locally grown, seasonal organic herbs and vegetables. Forward thinkers in the culinary and grocery community, such as Papa Joe’s, New Earth Health Foods, and The Mustard Seed Market and Cafe opened the door for local farmers and organic growers like me.
In addition to growing herbs and vegetables I had been growing wheatgrass for myself, friends, and family while educating myself and others about the benefits of drinking wheatgrasss juice. As the truth about the qualities of wheatgrass juice have become known, “wheatgrasss” has gone from an unknown entity to a house-hold word. Growing wheatgrass became year-round, full-time work for me, so I hung up my black and whites (I had always waited tables in the winter) and put on my work gloves and boots.
By the time we were producing 70 pounds of wheatgrass a week in my basement, I realized it was time to expand, so we moved the operation to a warehouse space (The Wheatgrass Plant) in the valley.
After eight years in the valley, we once again outgrew our space. This time we were fortunate enough to find a building that would meet our unique needs as wheatgrass growers. From scratch we designed and built a state of the art climate controlled grow room and facility that will accommodate our future growth.
At our new facility we brought along our School of Energy. Our Energy Studio has a gorgeous — 800 square foot state-of-the-art Danish tongue-and-groove professional exercise floor. This space is well suited for many energetic exercise practices and enlightenment assembly of all kinds.
The School of Energy is designed to attract a diverse spectrum of holistic and energetic facilitators and teachers for all ages and levels. My vision is to create a venue where healers, teachers and students come together to practice healthy living. A place where individuals and groups can realize opportunity and create their own reality.
Join us the first Saturday of each month to celebrate the wealth of talented local musicians in a casual and comfortable atmosphere.
