“Szekely is arguably the best-placed person on the planet to launch a Wellness Initiative.” –Ann Brenoff, Huffington Post, May 3, 2012
Szekely is arguably the best-placed person on the planet to launch a wellness initiative of this magnitude because of her background. For the past 72 years, she has operated world-renowned spas based on her philosophies of treating your body as a temple, not polluting it with processed food, developing a lifestyle of physical activity and allowing your body to heal itself whenever possible. And in the process of spreading her wellness gospel, has accrued a cadre of influential followers. Ann Brenoff, Huffington Post, May 3, 2012

Deborah Szekely says “It’s Time to Take Action!”

It’s time to take action.
I’ve spent 72 years teaching wellness. I’ve affected the lives of tens of thousands of people —
but Americans are less healthy than ever. We need to own our health, respect and care for our bodies, the home in which we live and die.
It’s going to take a cultural revolution — and political will.
For my 90th birthday, my dream is that every person my life has touched will join the Wellness Spring movement.
As I travel the country, I’m constantly meeting people and discovering organizations
doing incredible work to encourage wellness. I believe this spring we can build a wellness movement
that will forever change our country.
But I can’t do it alone — I need your help.
Join me today:
Hi Leslie Goldman, thanks for joining!
This photo, taken May 6, 2012, at Professor’s Park in Tecate, shows Deborah Szekely, a few days after her 90th Birthday, sharing love and appreciation for an Elder, Felimon Garcia, who worked at the Ranch for many years. He would bring fresh fertile eggs he told me to the Professor, co-founder of Rancho La Puerta, and the rest of the family. This photo is Deborah Szekely at 90. The fruits of her labor, vision, and personal health practices show in this photo of the woman called “The Godmother of Wellness.” Visions for good spring from the Wellness Springs of the Szekely family. It is time now for Deborah to have an even greater impact on U.S. and World Health. Let us support her in her 90th Birthday Wish: $10,000,000 to help switch the nation’s health around. She is calling for people to give $10.00 each, and join her cause. Be examples of wellness in our own lives, as well as influence Washington, she says in the video above.

My Garden Management Journal
It is my first morning home from a transformational life shifting experience thanks to my stay at Rancho La Puerta.
I am filled with ideas for Plant Your Dream Blogs.
The first thing I am doing is to support the wishes of Deborah Szekely. Called the Godmother of Wellness, she spoke Monday night at the Ranch.
Deborah Szekely commented on how she felt.
She said that 90 felt like 60.
Deborah, who said she had lived in Washington D.C. for 17 years, stays young through coming up with new ideas.
Wellness Warrior is the latest that has come my way.
I am going to spread the word here on the Plant Your Dream Blogs.
Here is the Curezone Link
Anything that Deborah Szekely says do, I will always want to support. Her personal life and vision has been at the heart beat of wellness for more than 73 years as the co-founder of the #1 Destination Spa in the World, Rancho La Puerta.
In this series of Plant Your Dream Blogs, I will share why I feel Rancho La Puerta is the #1 Destination Spa in the World.
I will share my personal reflections from my most recent visit.

GROW A HEALTHIER PIZZA!” WORKSHOP @ THE NATIONAL HEIRLOOM EXPO, SEPTEMBER 11,12, 13
I am setting out in 2012 to inspire thousands of new gardeners. I set this intention when I spoke at Organic Listening Day at the USDA in Washington September 20, 2011, and volunteered to be the Enchanted Gardener for the People’s Garden Initiative. The beginning: We can each grow some of our own food in containers and get our beat back with nature. I travel with a silver box that contains the deepest dreams of humanity, and a pot where you are invited to Plant Your Dream. I hand out seeds to others as well and encourage their planting. We have reached a tipping point of consumer initiative thanks to so many divergent voices coming together. A literal grassroots movement of gardeners will inspire the White House, Congress, and its Federal agencies to come to terms with Real Food Safety; this includes GMO proliferation. Our Food Emergency is my pressing issue of the 2012 campaign. As a consumer movement, the Right to Know Initiative reached near 1,000,000 signers in early May to get on the California Ballot. Now we are taking the next step at the ballot box this November. Washington is in the farm bed with Biotech Agriculture. Thousands more small gardeners are needed, and a new generation of organic farmers. We will ignite a movement of 10 million strong or more leading to ‘Uncle Sam Marries “Anti” GMO.’ “Grow a Healthier Pizza” is my contribution toward this victory through blogging, educating and planting strong intentions.

Leslie Goldman’s Dream Is to Win Back Our Sacred Seed
by Kathy McFarland
Leslie Goldman has been a friend of Baker Creek for many years. Having received a United Nations Peace medal in the early 1980s, his current passion is inspiring thousands upon thousands of new gardeners and small-scale farmers beginning with asking them to plant “a dream in a pot.”
Traveling in a ’68 VW van called the Enchanted Garden Mobile, he has driven from San Diego to Santa Rosa, California, 4 consecutive years to attend the National Heirloom Exposition that launches the pure food revolution to higher and higher levels each year. Leslie led both the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2015 Expo.
A proponent of biodynamic and permaculture design principles, Leslie lives near San Diego State University where he aims to inspire local students in this latest project called the enchanted Garden Rare Seed Outpost.
The mission of his Johnny Appleseed traveling Enchanted Gardener in 2016 is celebrating the end of the Monsanto years and inspiring us to “end the drought” in our lives. He believes that planting heirloom seeds will win back our sacred seeds. His Winning Back Our Sacred Seed Starter Kit is available from Baker Creek to “inspire us each to press the restart button for this earth through each of us planting our dreams in living soil.”
Leslie welcomes everyone to visit his Plant Your Dream blog where you will find the sacred seed prayer that he shares with individuals and groups, as well as an invitation to become a member of the Mother Earth’s Enchanted Garden Club. http://plantyourdream.net/?p=21103
2012 Bio Note National Heirloom Expo:Leslie Goldman is a real food advocate from San Diego. He was given a U.N. Peace Medal in 1983 from Robert Muller, assistant secretary general for the U.N., for the work he would do in his life. Leslie is a popular internet writer on the Plant Your Dream Blog with more than 4.7 million page views. He is known for his compelling photography. The book “The Ultimate Gardener,” HCI 2009 is dedicated to him, “It reads, “To Leslie Goldman, The Enchanted Gardener, for planting dreams and seeds of inspiration.

half my life
to tell somebody

I’d wait for some
