Blog Post: Nick Heyming and His Team Have Founded Disaster.Tools to Assist Those in Need after Natural Disasters

The Emerald Village has been a source of constant challenges and opportunities.  Since we founded it 7 years ago, we've all had to deal with balancing our private lives, our professional careers, and the many obligations that come from owning and maintaining a large property.  Over the last few months this became particularly clear, as circumstances in the outside world confronted us in unique ways.
I've been working on an app to teach people gardening called Seeds for the last few years.  We developed a prototype for it and have tested it around the village.  This past fall, after a slew of hurricanes had devastated the Atlantic, and fires were raging in Santa Rosa and Ventura, my team decided to pivot and take the engine we'd developed for Seeds and use it to coordinate relief and information before, during, and after disasters.  We call the project Disaster.Tools, and after working out the engineering and data architecture were contacting relief organizations from Texas to Florida to the California Wine Country to see how we could best assist them.

Upcoming Events

Our beautiful, one hundred year old Wisteria will be blooming now. If you are a photographer, we have a special opportunity for you!  We invite you to schedule a photo shoot under our wisteria and make a small, 10% suggested donation to our Wisteria Trellis Fund.  The trellis that supports the Wisteria needs to be rebuilt and we are raising funds to build a magnificent new trellis.  Please link below to email questions regarding this offer.  It is truly a magical place for a photo shoot!
