A Time for this Land to Blossom and Those who Live Here with It
Creating an inventory of plants on our 1/3 acre property is one current project. The Plant Parenthood Garden Management Journal is an instrument to help reorient our lives toward keeping the beat with nature.
From my Garden Management Journal March 23, 2015
I went to Rancho La Puerta March 22, 2015 The scene was idyllic for the Memorial to Emberleigh Shenandoah Brightwood, October 24,1997-February 7, 2015. The Memorial was held at Kuchama Passage. I started to reflect on the kind of memorial I would like and where I would like to be buried or my ashes scattered. One of the most difficult parts of my life is the responsibility I have taken on to live on the land where I live now. It has been a consuming responsibility quite often, and caused a lot of stress. I feel that stress in my kidneys. I have not had good kidney health for numbers of years. I do not want to blame the land itself for my infirmity. It is the challenge that can bring mastery. As I witness to Spring today, I feel a resolve that I want this land to blossom. I want to leave a legacy here. I am closer than ever to having the team I need now to make this land blossom. More soon…going out to the garden to witness to Spring.
Planting #OpenAccesstoFood for All took place as Kenneth E. Goff and Raymond Ford filled the Hillcrest Farmers Market with Sacred Sounds March 29, 2015. Two projects are on my agenda now, The first, developing the #EnchantedGardenRareSeedOutpost at home near SDSU has recently been reignited to a new level through contact with #Ron Finley who shared a vision in a TED talk to have people on his street, close to home, cooperatively growing food and sharing it.
I am seeking a new housemate for June who would like to foster such a vision, and we as a household are close to having the team to fulfill such a vision.

HOUSEMATE SEARCH BEGINS
THE JOURNEY TO @HEAIRLOOM EXPO HAD BEGUN
My Second Seed Dream now will be stabilizing my home environment so I am free to prepare for the Journey to @Heirloomexpo September 8-10, 2015 in Santa Rosa, CA. Plan A involves a least a month or longer away from home. I would be doing my Johnny Appleseed like ministry traveling to various WFM and places who want to hear the story of how planting @rareseeds fosters biodiversity of culture and is a step toward outgrowing our current dysfunctional centralized food growing system that is increasingly dependent on GMO and conventional pesticide driven agriculture.
The yellow dream pot in this photo above contains these Seed Dreams as well as dreams for many others. This child at the Hillcrest Farmers’ Market was planting ancient KAMUT® wheat grains with me. He really got into what we were doing, taking the seeds and planting them in the pot.
Gardening comes naturally to kids. I am looking forward to teaching again at The National Heirloom Exposition where I will do an opening ceremony session as well as work with the kids. The National Heirloom Expo is the World’s Pure Food Fair. Locally, I hand out Blue Ribbons to farmers and products that I consider would be First Place Winners at this incredible agricultural event that fosters and inspires more backyard gardening and gardening in the schools.
Thanks to all my sponsors and new members of the Enchanted Garden Club for assisting me in my two current Campaigns, The Campaign to Grow a Healthier Pizza. Win Back Our Sacred Seeds right here at home, and The Enchanted Garden Mobile’s Journey To Win Back Our Sacred Seeds

THE INSPIRATION TO ATTRACT A NEW HOUSEMATE TO HELP FULFILL A VISION TO WILL LEAD TO SHARED GARDENING WITH NEIGHBORS
Facebook Entry; March 30, 2015 I planted seeds for #OpenAccessToFood with L.A.’s guarilla gardener Rob Finley. He was responsible for changing laws in his city that now allow for gardening on City land. I met Ron in a Super Session #expowest, the Natural Products Expo that urged the natural food industry to take action to remedy this communities with underserved food needs. This turned into the planting of a Seed Dream with Ron and #RobinEmmons, another advocate. Ron expressed a dream that people on his block with each brow different kinds of food and share them. I am taking up this call, as I turn to seeking a new housemate, timing to be confirmed soon. My dream as I see it is that I will draw in a person who wants to garden and has cooperative living desires to live with a group of individuals in shared housing. We would take steps to create #OpenAccessToFood in my immediate neighborhood through taking steps to grow and manage our land sustainable, step by s step. There are many work projects to be done. The individual would have a desire to garden, prepare healthy foods, and a willingness to live with others maintaining a high standard of helping to clean up after themselves as well as work on the land here 12 hours or more a month in trade, likely 12 or more hours. The rent is $640.00 and this includes utilities and some shared supplies. The rent trade option would be $520.00 plus work done. This is a story about Ron Finley. He expressed the dream of shared gardening on his block in a TED talk. I will get that URL soon. https://www.minds.com/blog/view/425798311182602240/in-la-now-you-can-use-city-land-for-a-free-vegetable-garden

Food Access & the Role of the Natural Foods Industry The inspiration to plant #OpenAccesstoFood for All began here at this SuperSession at #expowest March 6, 2015. The subject material ended with a call to take Action to provide food for the Underserved. http://www.curezone.org/blogs/fm.asp?i=2244773 PAGE VIEWS 1,010,025; March 23, 2015; 10:04 am 1,017,396 March 30, 2015; 7:27 am
