Transforming Community through Biobased Regenerative Systems

How to Get Involved


Invest and Divest—like your life depended on it!

It is critical that these resilient and regenerative plant waste and plant-based economic strategies are properly capitalized, both in financial resources and human capacity. They are our future, along with solar and other renewable energy, materials and closed loop socio-economic systems. Sadly, market failure and externalties keep these industries from being able to compete, as the true cost of unsustainable and dirty energy industries are not reflected in their prices, reverberating thru our whole economy and making the cost of everything unreflective of the world we want. For information on how to invest(divest), email us and we can send our business plans and docs. and follow us on our Facebook Pages, which contain lots of good helpful articles on a range of issues from sustainable farming, land use and energy policies, to helpful around the home solutions and strategies.

Buy our products and services

Though it seems we are pedaling on the proverbial gerbil toy, but we are pretty sure buying our stuff helps, at least until that universal paycheck comes in the mail(LOL)?!

We sell top self, local organic CBD, biodiesel and transportation, and the OCEIP site is now producing a range of seasonal veggies ourselves or through several CSAs we have arranged with local farmers. We also have a network of friends and businesses that can help you or your business lower its footprint, build resiliency and go green. Our hourly rates are competitive and service “priceless.” Check in or sign up by emailing us,

Tours and Events

OCEIP offers a unique experience for guests to see state-of-the-art efforts to build a more sustainable and resilient future. Greenway already has strong contacts in the event planning community and it has brought university students to the site in the Fall of 2019 during the height of the hemp growing season, to great excitement, over the potential of the industry. Given its proximity to major urban areas and universities, and two interstates, this holds the possibility of generating income and numerous beneficial relationships in education and business.
