After 25 years of success in technology businesses, Ivan made his transition into activities that reflect more of his personal interests and life mission. What began as research into his passions and curiosities eventually developed into group discussions, speaking engagements and expressing his knowledge and insights through a variety of websites, unpublished manuscripts, videos, blogs, social networks, interviews, lectures, radio, and other media. These activities are summarized in Ivan's "Body of Work"

Heavenly Farms is an organic food co-op that has a unique approach from most food co-ops where people either pay for a weekly basket of fresh produce or join together to plant and share their harvest. Instead, Heavenly Farms utilizes group buying power to purchase organic produce in bulk directly from the organic wholesalers. This co-op model may be more appealing for those living in areas with short growing cycles, have busy lifestyles or might prefer a more consistent produce selection. This model provides an opportunity to purchase organic produce at a reduced cost and with a high quality than is normally available through the retail food chains. It also provides an opportunity for those on limited budgets and limited time to eat organic rather than non-organic produce. read more
