What boomer doesn't love a good mushroom? Oh wait; it's not 1968 anymore. OK, well Back to the Roots' grow-your-own mushroom kits are not only eco-groovy, they serve a good cause. If you post a photo of your kit's harvest to the company's Facebook page, the company will send the school of your choice a free kit. Companies with a cause rate high in our book, no pun intended. Besides, as a general rule of thumb: Anything that Chez Panisse founder Alice Waters likes, we like. And says Alice: "Back to the Roots and their mushroom kit is really showing us what the youth can do with all their enthusiasm and energy. Local, sustainable & fresh food . . . great!" Retail: $19.95
