The People of Earth Goods

Miz Red:

Founder, Alchemist, & Guide

The founder of Earth Goods, and known locally as “Miz Red”, she is often seen slogging through anywhere there is mud, water & plants, making interesting things out of sticks & stones, bringing oil & water together to make a great bar of soap, or, her favorite – working with energy in all of it’s fascinating forms.

Drawn to nature, healing, and energy work from earliest memories, Red has always done the things that Earth Goods is all about, but decided to make it “official”, complete with a real storefront, production facility, a bank account and advertising, in order to reach out to as many people as possible, with the goal of helping them to improve their lives in the process.

Creative Madness

To say that this guy is a source of Creative Madness is an understatement – he rarely uses anything for it’s intended purpose, and creates things – especially candles – that are off the chain.

A master of many things, Wiggz brings a depth of creativity to Earth Goods that would not exist without him. From crafting beautiful boxes and birdhouses (from raw trees!) to welding intricate things to making awesome candles to construction of our places and spaces, he can do most anything, and he makes us laugh a lot in the process.

Want to see some of his work? Visit the “Candles” page (accessed from the “Products” page), or stop by the Cabin or the Scottsville Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings!

Photography and Art

Bright, funny, and talented in many ways, Zack is not only our resident photographer, but he excels at all things artistic.

He also helps with gathering of materials and production of products if forced into it, but his heart is elsewhere, so we mostly utilize his talents for things that he truly loves.

Fond of fire at a young age, he has (thank heavens) turned that fascination into something creative and is now a master fire-spinner. Other talents include cooking, juggling, and, as of late, learning to ride a unicycle.

We rent him out for entertainment purposes at parties, backyard cookouts, social events, and the like. He’s cheap, and very, very funny, so the next time you’re looking for some unusual (and slightly dangerous) entertainment, drop us an email for details!

Kelsi:

Market Boss

Kelsi doesn’t really have a “title” or belong to a “department” because she just walks in, says “what needs to be done today?” and then does it. She’s truly a gem, and we rely heavily on her to keep the cogs and wheels turning.

Kelsi has also become an excellent forager and is great in the field, identifying and collecting botanicals on a regular basis, then bringing them back to the shop for processing and production.

When not trimming soaps, labeling lotions,  stocking the shelves, or doing any of the hundred other things that she undertakes tirelessly, you can find this amazing young woman at the Scottsville Farmer’s Market every Saturday – just look for the flaming red hair – you can’t miss her.

 

Jack:

 

Kayaking Expert, Nature Therapy Guide, Tester of all Fat Dawg  Products

Jack is never far from Miz Red, whether she’s making soap, foraging for plants, doing energy work on someone, or running rapids in their shared kayak.

Intelligent and adventurous, Jack is an integral part of the Earth Goods family, and is one of the most unique creatures we have ever had the good fortune to spend time with.

That being said, he’s also territorial and obnoxious at times, but we’re working on that …
