Video: Fresh Start Community Garden

Dear brothers and sisters,

See how a partnership between senior citizens and youngsters has transformed a vacant lot in Newport, Vermont into a bountiful garden and a vibrant, multi-generational community.

This is a magnificent example of regeneration and renewal springing from the living roots.

Please accept our best wishes for good health, prosperity and success to you and family,

Recipe: Mexican Style Celery Root Chowder

by Master Live Food Chef Barbara Kessler of Rawfully Tempting

All you need is a good blender to create this fabulous, rich and creamy chowder. This is a keeper for sure. If you have a Vitamix, lucky you! Blend it a little longer to gently warm, and enjoy it’s soothing comfort on a cold, wintery day.

Option – For a great authentic smoky flavor, in place of Chipotle powder, add a touch of cayenne The Smoking Gun. Follow manufacturer’s instructions. Using applewood chips, insert hose into blender (above ingredients) and smoke blended ingredients for 30 seconds. Keep top of blender covered with towel and let flavor permeate for 2-3 minutes. Remove hose and blend again. Chowder is ready to serve. Cold smoking with a hand-held gun is a raw fooder’s Smoky Heaven!

All the ingredients came together for your happiness: alive pistachios grown by family farmers in the rich, alluvial soil of California’s great Central Valley, sun-dried black olives and sun-dried tomatoes, sesame, apple cider vinegar, aromatic spices (cayenne, garlic, cumin, curry powder) and herbs (basil, thyme, rosemary) and sea salt, all blended with Living Tree Alive Olive Oil- unfiltered, unheated, UNPRESSED.





Sunflower Oil – Alive & Organic

Unheated, unfiltered, cold pressed from American grown sunflower seeds.

The deep tap roots of the Kiawe trees have reached an underground aquifer of fresh water that flows down from the volcanoes. This forest is in a desert and no other vegetation has tapped the aquifer, allowing the bees to collect Kiawe nectar of exceptional purity and quality.




Essay Contest – Darwin’s Doubts

Dear brothers and sisters,

The hypothesis advanced by Darwin that life evolves by chance from earlier forms and that survival is conditioned by the struggle for existence is being increasingly challenged. It seems that the fossil evidence does not support his view. Indeed Darwin, a man of utmost integrity, expressed his doubts. A lot is at stake here; go on to any campus and ask the first person you see as to how they conceptualize the origin of life and differentiation into species and they will answer “Darwin”. The concept that we have evolved by chance from a monkey, an ape or some such thing leads to a particularly bleak outlook, barren of spirit where the only reality is the accretion of things. Indeed such a view reflects the moral and spiritual lunarscape of the times in which we live.

Here are some leading and well reasoned videos; we invite you to review them. Make your reply into a video. We will award the most alive and organic essayist with a gift certificate for purchasing $150 of our foods. The contest ends October 20th.

Please send me a link to your video. Thank you.
With appreciation,

Jesse Schwartz PhD
