Video: The Computer Will See You Now: Is Your Therapy Session About to Be Automated? A Review

Dear brothers and sisters,

We marvel at the propensity of people to set up dummies of metal, stone and wood and genuflect to them.Among the current coterie are "Its a chemical imbalance”-to explain depression,anxiety and other vagaries of the human soul.Then there’s “Darwin” in response to "Why are we here?" or "where do we come from?” Contemporaneously, "the science”  inures us to so much travail. But then idolatry is nothing new, indeed it is one of the oldest delusions.

We are convinced that we can transcend it and come back to Nature, to ourselves, to creative and fulfilling work and to community with brothers and sisters.

We can do it and plant here a garden for the American spirit.

May we wish you and family a Springtime of delight and abundance.

New! Items For June

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.
