Video: A Green Drink with Exotic Wild Plants
Dear brothers and sisters,
It is springtime here in California! We celebrate with a green drink, an efflorescence of both wild and garden veggies. So join us as we blend chickweed, miner’s lettuce and nettle along with kale and chard and quaff it in celebration of what we can be.
We will yet cultivate an edible landscape for the American spirit.
Please watch the video. Your comments would be so much appreciated.
With good wishes for vibrant good health to you and family,
Jesse Schwartz PhD

Plant a Tree Video Contest
I invite you to plant a tree the Spring. What better way to exemplify the certainty that come what may, you will see us through.
Why not make it an historic apple tree, say, Thomas Jefferson's Esopus Spitzenburg or George Washington Newtown Pippen?
Maybe a fine, old English variety like Cox's Orange Pippin or Ashmead’s Kernal? What about a plum or a peach or maybe even a walnut tree?
We will award a gift certificate of $250 for the most alive and organic video. Contest ends April 28th.
Send a link to your video to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Check below for a tree planting video to inspire you.

New crop! Beautiful slices. What wonderful fruit salads you’ll make!
As a symbol of hospitality, the pineapple has a cultural association with the idea of—welcome—and has been used traditionally as a gift when meeting someone new in cultures all over the world.
Pineapple also has many health benefits and is loaded with calcium, potassium, fiber, and vitamin C, and is rich in manganese, a trace mineral the body uses to build bone and connective tissues.
Buckwheat Groats are buckwheat seeds that have been hulled. Subtly flavored when raw, buckwheat develops an earthly, nutty taste when roasted, long used as a tasty cereal-type grain called kasha.
This gluten-free grain can be substituted for wheat, oats, rye or barley. You may also grind it into a flour to use in buckwheat pancakes or combine with wheat flour to use in baked goods.
