Video: A Garden for the American Spirit

Dear brothers and sisters,

Why not consider a day of cleansing, regeneration and contrition. A day of just drinking water.

Let’s follow that with a day of whole food - just fruits and vegetables - no snacks, no soft drinks, no take out, no ultra processed food. The emphasis will be on Living Greens: lettuce, kale, spinach, parsley and chard.

Then  a day of vigorous exercise. Imagine every park, every playground, every school yard filled with Americans engaged in calisthenics, stretching and moving to the sound of music.

We’d follow that with a day of tree planting. Every American planting a tree!  What more organic way to stabilize the climate and revitalize this American earth?! The winter months are just ahead. It’s the ideal time to plant a tree.

Let’s us conclude by agreeing that we have reached the point where you can do anything.

You will lead us through the cleansing and regeneration we so desperately need. You will reverse the cultural meltdown. You will redeem us. You will build here a garden for the American spirit.

Cashew Butter - Organic

Living Tree Community Foods Organic Cashew Butter is created in Berkeley, California from organic cashews and our raw organic Almond Oil. It is produced slowly, in small batches, to give it a wondrous, creamy texture. It’s perfect when paired with cucumbers, celery or even peppers. It’s also a great topping for fruits and desserts. What a delightful way to add some variety to your lunches!

Cashews (Whole) – Shelled & Organic

Living Tree Community Foods organic cashews are grown on small, family-owned farms in Vietnam. Once harvested, the cashew nuts are shelled at a local processing facility. Our cashews have been certified organic since 1998.

Pumpkin Seed Butter – Alive and Organic

Living Tree Community Foods Organic Pumpkin Seed Butter is created in Berkeley, California from alive, raw organic pumpkin seeds grown by American family farmers. We make it by slicing raw pumpkin seeds into a luxurious spread, adding organic pumpkin seed oil and then seasoning it with a little Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt. Very nourishing and energizing. A balanced source of good protein. Try it on fruit slices and on flax crackers.

California Heritage Extra Virgin Olive Oil

It's back! We are delighted to be offering it to you again.

Living Tree Community Foods California Heritage Olive Oil is rich in antioxidants. We invite you to rejoice in its robust, sharp flavor. Experience how its pungency enhances the flavors of food.

Our California Heritage Olive Oil has a high available biophenol content: 605 ppm (parts per million) compared with 222 ppm for most extra virgin olive oils. In other words, its biophenol content is 2.7 times the average. Very high phenolic content and excellent stability should provide long shelf life of over a year as well as beneficial health value. This olive oil has, along with its bitterness and pungency, mineral and green vegetable organoleptic characteristics.

Tibetan Black Barley - Alive & Organic

Living Tree Community Foods Raw Organic Tibetan Black Barley is provided by Oregon Grain & Bean, with this crop grown on an organic farm in Idaho. Tibetan Black Barley, with its bran intact, retains its firm, plump texture during cooking, making it perfect in soups, stuffings and stews. It’s also great when mixed with other grains due to its somewhat chewy, contrasting texture.
