Video: The Silent Streets: On Loneliness in America

Let’s ask ourselves which one of us has a close friend, just one, with whom they can share innermost feelings and tribulations. How is it that we have become so isolated, distant and remote from one another?

Just glance at people crossing streets hunched over their phones amidst the deafening silence. Then there is the epidemic of suicides:- of nurses, of people in rural areas, of teens and young adults. This is a cry, a silent cry from the soul of America.

Please watch the video, your critique would be appreciated.We want to hear from you.

New! Items For September

Macadamia Nut Butter – Alive & Organic

As you know we’ve been out of alive, organic macadamias all year.We were getting them from Hawaii but they’ve become unavailable. We’ve found a source in Guatemala. Growing in a different clime and soil, their flavor, naturally enough, differs from their Hawaiian counterparts. To some tastes, the Guatemalan variety is a more nutty and earthy.

Opportunities at Living Tree Community Foods

We Welcome Investors

The U.S. organic market in 2018 broke through the $50 billion mark for the first time, with sales hitting a record $52.5 billion, up 6.3 percent from the previous year, according to the 2019 Organic Industry Survey released by the Organic Trade Association.
Characteristics that are identified with organic, such as clean, transparent, fresh and sustainable helped boost organic sales to unprecedented levels, according to the survey.

New records were made in both the organic food market and the organic non-food market. Organic food sales reached $47.9 billion, for an increase of 5.9 percent. Sales of organic non-food products jumped by 10.6 percent to $4.6 billion. The growth rate for organic continued to easily outpace the general market: in 2018, total food sales in the U.S. edged up just 2.3 percent while total non-food sales rose 3.7 percent.
Almost 6 percent (5.7%) of the food sold in this country is now organic. Today’s consumers can find organic products – food and non-food items — in every aisle of their grocery stores. They can choose organic in their favorite big box store, their club warehouse store, even in their neighborhood convenience store, and increasingly on the internet. Organic is no longer a niche market.

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!
