Our Seeds Will Save Us! Join The Caravan to the National Heirloom Expo
Baker Creek San Marzano Non GMO Tomato Seeds Grow a Healthier Pizza in a pot “in our Food Not Lawns Front Enchanted Garden” in San Diego. These heirloom seeds are one of 1400 available from Baker Creek Rare Seeds , sponsors of the upcoming National Heirloom Expo, September 11, 12 & 13, 1212 in Santa Rosa, CA. 160,000 packets of these seeds that make tomato paste were a gift to the California Right to Know Label GMO Foods Ballot Initiative. I am aiming for 7.5 Million + 2 Californians & our Cheerleaders from other States and Nations to support the upcoming Caravan to Win Back Our Sacred Seeds. The aim of the Caravan is to support an overwhelming grassroots movement– from Industry leaders to grassroots activists–coming together now. We are more powerful –All One People Together-than the entire budget of those who want to keep the status quo. This is the time to have choice about the foods we eat and our Right to Know what is in them. This is our time to win back our Sacred Seeds. Join us.

AN OPEN LETTER TO PAUL WALLACE,
Organizer of the National Heirloom Expo, September 11, 12 & 13 in Santa Rosa, California
June 12, 2102
to Paul Wallace,
Baker Creek Rare Seeds
My heart and mind are being drawn this morning to the work of Romain Rolland, who in 1919 created a Declaration of Independence of the Mind. Many of the heroes of that age signed this declaration. Romain Rolland was writing in the days right after World War One.
He saw that we had been kept apart as nations by war. Today we are in a war on our seeds. Most of us do not know how to eat. We do not know that seeds are Sacred. It is on this journey to reclaim our Sacred Seeds that I join you in one of the most important events that has come into my pervue, The National Heirloom Expo September 11, 12 & 13 2012.
It is my honor to join the ranks of the gifted teachers for this event. I know that Grow a Healthier Pizza is more about bringing in an enormous shift in awareness than it is, about working ancient grains of KAMUT (R) Khorasan Wheat or growing the Non GMO San Marzano tomato seeds that Baker Creek has donated toward winning the California Right to Know Label GMO Foods Ballot Initiative.
All eyes, and the spirit of the future, will be focused on California by the time of the election of November 6.
I want to personally say, that I feel the fate of our seeds are now in jeopardy and I join you in knowing that now is the time that these seeds must be returned to the indigenous people of the world. Together, you and I, and all who come to the National Heirloom Expo wlll rekindle the founding Vision of America The Beautiful. We are an nation of Gardeners, at the least organic gardeners, at best gardeners looking out for our children who need the foods that grow from heirloom seeds.
This journey we enter now, is not about merely about an event in California, winning this Ballot initiative to Label GMO Food or give the Right to Know what is in our foods, a right held by 50 other nations, What we do here now in an issue that belongs in the headlines of every news desk and internet venue.
I am committing to Caravan up to the National Heirloom Expo. I draw in now the spirit of Nobel Peace Prize Recepient Romain Rolland who knew that in spite of all that would hold the Peoples of the world apart, there is One People. Plant Your Dream is the message from Mother Earth to all these Souls, for the earth and the soul are soilmates.
We will win back our seeds. We will bring in a age of prosperity and help our world return to sanity through knowing the power in a simple seed to grow.
I repeat the words of Romain Rolland who in his book The Forerunners:
“Let us seek truth everywhere;
let us cull it wherever we can find its blossom
or its SEED. Having Found the seed,
let us scatter it to the winds of heaven.
Where ever it may blow, it will germinate.
There is no lack in this wide universe of souls
that will form the new ground.”
From The Forerunners
Nobel Peace Prize for Literature, 1917
I Join with you and the People of the world in being the New Ground.
Luther Burbank and all he said rises again. The Spirit of every gardener of the American Dream for Universal Freedom Awakens.
This is the time, and Santa Rosa, September 11, 12 & 13 the place.

“I’ve been waiting
half my life
to tell somebody
about Leslie Goldman.
I’d waith for some
Now it’s here–
Los Angeles Times Magazine
“Do you remember, a lifetime ago,
when Nat King Cole had a hit song called
‘Nature Boy?’ It told about a
‘strange, enchanted boy’ who wandered
far, very far, and when he met you,
he taught you many things.
I’ve met that boy, or someone very much like him,
and he is now a man known as the Enchanted
Gardener. I may never be the same.”
