Video: Green Drinks for Vitality and Aliveness

Dear brothers and sisters,

In 1960 Dr.H.E. Kirschner published his path breaking, “Natures Healing Grasses”. It extolls the benefits of green drinks of parsley, watercress, celery, and alfalfa as well as common wild plants, found everywhere, like dandelion, malva, filaree and lambs quarters. The book opens with a magnificent photo of the author, vitally alive at age 82.

Forty years later Victoria Boutenko took up where he left off and tirelessly extolled the benefits of green drinks. Today, they are an invaluable part of our heritage from the raw food movement.

We invite you, brothers and sisters, to put a couple cups of spring water into a blender and add parsley, lettuce, kale, chard and celery. Don’t forget to toss in a few cloves of garlic, a slice of fresh ginger and a chunk of turmeric root.

The vitality of being is yours to discover with a green drink at breakfast and again at dinner. This, in addition to other alive foods, of course.

Please watch the video.
Your comments are much appreciated.

Jujuberries contain a wide array of nutrients, including magnesium, potassium, copper, niacin, calcium, manganese, phosphorus, and iron. They contain 20 times more vitamin C than any citrus fruit, strengthening the immune system and fighting infections, which may be why they’ve been used medicinally for millennia in many cultures, as a tea for sore throat, for example.

Permaculture Garden Produces 7000 Pounds of Organic Food Per Year on a Tenth of an Acre

(Return to Now) Fifteen minutes from downtown Los Angeles, just 100 feet away from a major freeway, a small city lot was transformed into a mini paradise.

A fifth acre lot, minus the house, garage and driveway, the family has converted the remaining tenth of an acre into a tiny food forest that produces 7000 pounds of food per year with no synthetic fertilizers.

What’s the secret to their abundance? Permaculture methods that mimic Mother Nature to create nutrient-and-bacteria-rich soil.

Conventional agriculture methods strip nutrients from the soil until the land becomes barren and desertified.

Permaculture not only does not strip the soil, it regenerates it, says permaculture guru Toby Hemenway.

When Jules Dervaes moved to his Pasadena home in the 1985, there was no soil, only adobe-like clay.

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!
