  • Dryland poster FINAL

    IO grass makes a star role on the documentary film poster, Dryland

    We were so happy to hear from Sue of Dryland that our wheatgrass made a star role on the film poster! Just look at that beautiful grass! This award winning film has been screened at festivals all summer and still there are more opportunities to see this documentary in Washington and Oregon in November. See the website for more information on screening locations, to see the trailer or to purchase the DVD at We just ordered it!

    About Dryland…

    Filmed over a decade and set in the American West, Dryland traces a young man’s quest for victory in a rambunctious contest, while battling to preserve a threatened way of life. This cinematic meditation on the fate of rural America reveals a paradoxical struggle between technological advancement and the dwindling family farm. Josh Knodel and best friend Matt Miller strive to win the Lind Combine Demolition Derby, save their town, and preserve the legacy of their families’ Eastern Washington wheat farms. Bittersweet yet exuberant, Dryland champions hope, in a celebration of hard work and harder play, fueled by ingenuity, heart, and axle grease.

    Our wheatgrass container rentals have been high profile this summer!

    We have been having a blast in August growing our rental containers full of beautiful organic wheatgrass.  Most recently we were invited to decorate a beachside garden wedding which will be featured on the TLC show, Four Weddings.  The bride was inspired to create a party that was a bit less traditional but wanted something beautifully simple, different, eco-friendly and affordable for her centerpieces.  We were her perfect fit!    My designer friend, Kipja, and I had great fun decorating the party and were truly amazed how little we needed to spend on flowers as we just needed a few stems on each table for a pop of color.    We are all very excited to see the upcoming Four Weddings episode of RJ and Monica’s wedding which was a fantastic party.

    Earlier in the month we were also invited to decorate tables for a small dinner party Martha Stewart was attending.  Again, the hosts wanted something beautifully simple and modern.  We took cutting from one of their beautiful trees and sprinkled those around the table in mini modern vases.  We also rented Glassy Baby candle holders in monochromatic natural colors and beautiful cloths from Choice Linens and it was gorgeous.  Photos of our tables even made it on Martha’s blog!

    Growing Wheatgrass in Seattle

    Spend as little as $1 per week growing wheatgrass at home in Seattle.   All you need is a wheatgrass juicer and growing supplies.  Indianola Organics, near Seattle has everything you need to begin growing right away, including seeds, planting trays and our favorite juicers.

    Growing Basics

    1. Soak your hard winter wheat seed (also called wheat berries) overnight (8 to 12 hours).  Use 2 cups(dry seed measured) for a 10″x 20″ tray.
    2. Sprout the seed in a jar for the next 16 to 24 hours, rinsing the seed well three times a day.
    3. After a very short “tail” is visible, plant the seed on top of the soil. Basic potting mix or topsoil will work fine. Peat moss is an important ingredient to look for in your soil so if you have to add it, the mix is one part peat moss to three parts soil, filled halfway up a two-inch deep tray.
    4. Water the tray and then cover the seeds to keep them from drying out for the first three days.
    5. During the first three days of growth, water once a day in the morning and really soak the soil (until the tray drips is a good sign you are watering enough). Then lightly mist your seed in the evening (lift cover off to mist seed).
    6. On the fourth day, uncover grass (roots should begin to take over your soil), water heavily once a day and keep the grass in the shade (never direct sunlight).
    7. For mold problems, increase your air circulation with a fan or air conditioning to keep the temperature between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21° to 26° Celsius).
    8. Harvest grass when a second blade of grass appears on the grass blades, or when the grass “splits” toward the bottom of the blade. Average growing time is seven to 12 days, depending on the weather, but still always watch for the second blade of grass as you can never judge by how many days it has been growing or how tall the grass is.
    9. Only harvest once. Cut grass will store in the fridge for about seven to 10 days or longer in Debbie Meyer Green Bags. Then start the process all over again with new seeds and soil.

    The ideal growing temperature is 60-80° F (20-25° C). Always keep the temperature above 50°F (10°C), and if it is 80°F (26°C) or higher, increase air circulation to prevent mold. Also remember that your sprouts/grass will grow slower during colder months and faster in warmer Seattle weather.

    Have fun and if you are short on time please remember that we also deliver wheatgrass and sprouts to locations in the greater Seattle area and Kitsap County.

    Another favorite Indianola Organics recipe

    The Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach Florida is a leader in natural health care and founded on  a the philosophy of a vegan, living, enzyme-rich diet. Dr. Brian Clement, co-Director of Hippocrates Health Institute is a huge advocate of drinking fresh, green juices and is sharing one of his favorite green juice recipes. If you don’t drink green juice on a regular basis, here are a few reasons to consider slipping a few of these power-packed drinks into your daily routine!  Indianola Organics grows beautiful organics pea shoots and sunflower greens as well as organic wheatgrass near Seattle, Washington.  If you are a Seattle juicer we may be able to deliver to your door.

    Green juice…

    1.Detoxifies the body – It’s very cleansing and assists in the removal of toxins that people absorb everyday

    2.Fosters healthy weight loss

    3. Helps to alkalize the body (This is important as many diseases thrive in acidic conditions)

    4. Strengthens your immune system

    5. Gives you more energy (because juicing reduces the energy your body needs to digest foods)


    Brian Clement drinks two liters of juice a day and over half of that is made of sprouts, which are 30 times more nutritious than even the best vegetables! This juice combines two different types of sprouts: pea sprouts and sunflower sprouts.

    Dr Clement’s Sprouted Green Juice—For a 20 oz. serving of green juice, simply combine the following:


    5 0z. Indianola Organics Pea Shoots

    5 oz. Indianola Organics Sunflower Greens
