In this episode of Neighbor to Neighbor we speak with Adam Morvee of Ground Up Inspections. What, on it's surface, may seem like a dry subject is anything but, as Adam shares tidbits and...

Cascadia Mushroom

1/9/2019
More
In North Bellingham, there is a mushroom farm producing hundreds of pounds of mushrooms every single week in indoor warehouses. Driving by, you wouldn’t know it’s there. But what’s more interesting is that these aren’t your regular white button mushrooms you typically see on pizza or salad. Instead, they’re all exotic varieties. No, "exotic" does not mean psychedelic, rather mushrooms that are more commonly found in European or Asian Cuisine. In this episode of Neighbor to Neighbor, host...

Operation Doing More

For years Colby Stensland didn’t used to like Christmas. He didn’t decorate. Bought the minimal number of presents required. Holiday cheer, for him, was almost non-existent. And it’s not because he was a scrooge… it’s just that after his mom passed away a couple days before Christmas when he was a teenager, he just had a sour taste in his mouth about the whole Holiday. Surprisingly, he now runs a non-profit that’s about as Christmassy as it gets, and he’s about as into Christmas as a...

Bellingham Pasta Company

More
Pasta. Americans eat a lot of it. In fact, this week 59% of Americans will eat a pasta or noodle dish at least once. We eat, on average, 20 pounds of it per year. The thing is- not much of it comes from here, Washington state or the Northwest in general. Most Italian style pastas come from Italy and if not from Italy then the Midwest or East Coast. On this episode of Neighbor to Neighbor, host Keith Mader sits down with Katie Hinton, President & CEO of Bellingham Pasta Company, a company...

Downtime Taps

10/9/2018
More
According to a recent study by the Kauffman Foundation the average age for a first new business owner is 39 years old. Tomas Aminnie, 25, is a dramatic exception to that norm – and then some. Aminnie, is one of Whatcom County’s newest business owners, having co-founded Downtime Taps in Ferndale with Coconut Kenny’s owner, Chay Tan. What’s more astonishing than his age, is the fact that fourteen years ago, Aminnie was an orphan in Ethiopia and didn’t speak a word of English.
