Video: Hetch Hetchy – Full Fathom Five

Dear brothers and sisters,

I suppose that some of you have visited Yosemite Valley. One of the most beautiful and dramatic valleys. But how many have heard of the second Yosemite? It’s called Hetch Hetchy. It runs parallel to Yosemite , some miles to the north.

John Muir wrote of it, Hetch Hetchy Valley…is a grand landscape garden, one of Nature’s rarest and most precious mountain temples….
Sad to say, this most precious and sublime feature of the Yosemite National Park, one of the greatest of all our natural resources for the uplifting joy and peace and health of the people, is in danger of being dammed and made into a reservoir to help supply San Francisco with water and light, thus flooding it from wall to wall and burying its gardens and groves one or two hundred feet deep.

Following a fierce nationwide debate the city of San Francisco won congressional approval, in 1913, to build O’Shaughnessy Dam. The extraordinary wilderness valley was inundated.

This was John Muir’s last struggle. Some say he died of a broken heart.

One day, we are convinced, Hetch Hetchy will be restored. It will not just be the restoration of a sublime wilderness valley, on a deeper level, it will mark the restoration and renewal of this American earth.

Please watch the video. Your comments would be appreciated.

New! Items For January

California Almonds (Whole) – Alive & Organic – New Crop!


90% of the world’s almonds are grown in California’s Central Valley. It is bounded to the east by the towering Sierras and to the west by the coastal mountain range. Its rich, alluvial soil is wondrously fertile. This great plain is a sea of white in February when the almonds blossom. The orchards are irrigated by water from melting snow high in the Sierras. It is brought to them by a marvelous system of canals. California almonds are sweeter and their flavor is richer and more complex. Imported almond cannot compare. California almonds are simply the best.

 

 

Almond Butter – Alive & Organic – Made From the New Crop of Almonds!


We began making almond butter over 25 years ago. Over the years, we have developed a proprietary process: we make the almond butter slowly, over several days. We slice the almonds and never grind them, which exposes the nut to the least heat possible to keep the flavors and properties of the raw nut intact. We make it frequently, in small batches, so it’s fresh and alive.

 

 

 

Cacao Butter Discs – Alive & Organic


Our alive cacao butter is of outstanding quality, It comes from the island of Bali. Cacao Butter is a key ingredient in making fine chocolate and confections of all sorts. Grate and add to melted cacao paste along with a sweetener such as honey, agave or palm nectar crystals to make a delightful chocolate. Add chopped raisins and dates, maybe chopped mangoes and persimmons too. Pour mixture onto a baking sheet and allow to harden in you refrigerator. It also makes a great skin care product. Try adding one part grated cacao butter to three parts melted coconut oil. Let it solidify in a wide mouthed jar — it is great for the skin and will impart an exotic fragrance.

We Welcome Investors


Demand for organic food is booming. Last year sales of organic products jumped 11% to more than $39 billion. Also, the number of US organic farmers and processors has grown by 250% since 2002, when the natural organic program began. Indeed, organic food production has more than tripled since that time.

Thanks to your kind support, we too are growing. We wish to hire more teamworkers and to purchase tools and equipment. We are seeking long term, stable capital. If taking a strategic position in the organic food industry appeals to you, let’s talk!
