About Us

In the Spring of 2008 Ken Kuhne, owner/operator of Biomes, an environmentally friendly home construction company, was wondering how to respond positively to this new and shifting world. He woke suddenly one night with the thought, “I need to help people grow their own food supply.”

Ken talked the next morning with his neighbor, Deborah Madison, author of Local Flavors. Deborah, who likes to grow her own vegetables and herbs, suggested that Ken build grow beds as a way she and others could produce their own crops year round.

Ken designed and built the affordable, renewable GROW Y’OWN grow bed system to help people live a sustainable lifestyle, while saving both money and gasoline. Today Deborah Madison plants year round in her nine GROW Y’OWN units. And Ken is producing grow beds year round for self-sufficient new farmers from the desert to the ocean. This business will improve the health and well-being of your community, too.

In 2023, Ken partnered with Walt Cameron, co-publisher/co-owner of edible New Mexico magazine. Walt looks forward to building on the legacy that Ken has built.
