Video: An Edible Schoolyard for the American Spirit

Dear brothers and sisters,

You have surmounted the most terrible challenges. You abolished slavery after four years of brutal conflict.You struggled grievously through the Great Depression and then arose majestically to defeat an egregious threat.-

We know that you will come through.You will heal and regenerate this American earth. Abraham Lincoln prophesied well when he spoke of “a new birth of freedom”.

We urge you to use this time of isolation to plant a garden. After all, this time of isolation coincides with the onset of Spring.Make it then a garden, a victory garden to declare that despite all you will triumph.

Please watch video. It was made in an edible schoolyard in Berkeley-the work of your hands.

We want to hear your comments and suggestions.

We want you to know that we are here for you. In these times of crisis it is our privilege to serve you.

May we wish you and family, good health, prosperity and success,

Jesse Schwartz PhD

A Letter From a Dear Customer

Dear Friends at Living Tree Community,

I received my order today and I want to thank you very much for sending it. I am certain that everything will be delicious! I know people appreciate your work more than ever right now. For example, hypothetically speaking, if someone has the coronavirus and have found that eating solid food (for some strange reason!) makes it more difficult to breathe, that doesn’t happen when one of your delicious nut butters is spread on a juicy apple. Importantly, at the same time, this enables that same individual to know that they are getting excellent, wonderful nutrition that will support their health. On behalf of any person that might notice that, I thank you very much.

Stay well,
All the best,
Elizabeth

Alive, Organic Bonus Program – Organic Nuts and Free Shipping


New! Items For April

Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds – Organic

Imagine! Organic California almonds, grown by family farmers, covered with Fair Trade, organic Dark Chocolate. Just the thing for hiking the John Muir Trail or as a snack after gymnastics.

Nutritional Yeast (Large Flake) – Organic

These flakes are a favorite for adding savory flavor to soups, sauces, gravies, and prepared foods where umami flavor is needed.

Yeast has been an ingredient for baking and fermentation for more than 3000 years.

Nutritional yeast is made from a single-celled organism of fungi called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. In a controlled environment it is cultured, left to grow, then deactivated, harvested, washed and dried. The deactivation process prevents the yeast from being used as a leavening agent.

Nutritional yeast is a flavor enhancer that offers naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and micro-nutrients. These large flakes are a bit spicier and have more yeast flavor than other nutritional yeast.

California Date Value Pack

Retail Cost: $39.96 – Yours for: $34.99

Contains the following treasures:-

Medjool Dates – 1lb
Halawi Dates – 1lb
Black Abbada Dates – 1lb
Khadrawy Dates – 1lb

Black Abbada Dates – Organic

An elegant black date with a luxurious appearance. Your family and friends will be impressed with your sophistication.A triumph of California agronomy.

Khadrawy Dates – Organic

Delightfully rich and melodiously soft.

A marvel of California agriculture. Try this winter drear buster!

Green Split Pea – Organic

Green peas are believed to be a distant relative of the field pea that was native to the Middle East and Central Asia. Since prehistoric times, dried peas have been consumed and were prized by the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, China and Rome.

Green split peas are not only tasty and simple to cook, but are also a good source of protein, iron and dietary fiber.

Vanilla Powder – Organic

We have brought Organic Vanilla Powder back, despite its high price, as we have gotten so many inquiries. It is considered by some to be a culinary indispensable. It is made by pulverizing the whole dried beans to a fine powder. It is well suited to incorporation into liquid-sensitive mixtures, such as some icings and melted chocolate, where even a small amount of liquid could create a problem. In addition, the flavor of vanilla powder is more intense than that of most extracts and does not dissipate even with prolonged cooking. Vanilla powder will keep well, stored in an opaque, airtight container in a cool, dry place.
