Today is Saturday, Day Three, of the Ten Day Tour of the East Coast, September 15-25, 2011. This was a profoundly amazing day. The morning I was in playmode with Feng Shui With Lurrae at her most lovely home, a condo in Madison, CT. “Show Time” was 12:30 pm. We were refining our signals and learning to be a team. He is profound to feel so much unconditional support, quite a contract to what I feel at home at the Enchanted Garden Intentional Community Growing Grounds in San Diego, where their is a major project to Secure Our Organic Future, attempting to balance out
the “I and the We” of living together in a household of divergent voices within walking distance of San Diego State University. Home is an important exercise in chocking up points for The Great Experiment, can people learn to live together cooperatively?
With the help of Organic Industry Stakeholders who I will see in Baltimore, and numbers who are already my friends and allies supporting our non -profit work and the Plant Your Dream Blog, we will create an Enchanted Garden Pantry. This land has survive much over the years and has a mind of its own that is attempting to Survive This Day, the title of a book I wrote for Dr. Bernard Jensen (1907-2001) traditional Natural Healer and pioneer in the American Health Sanitarium Tradition.
(More on that elsewhere!). The latest “Growth” opportunity is meeting the demands of the Fire Prevention Bureau of San Diego that sent letters to all neighbors along the Arosa Canyon rim. I talked to Sylvia of the FIre Prevention Bureau and she expressed a sense of urgency for our Overgrowth Clean Up. She also said she would sent an official letter detailing the need. Numbers of the Residents met. They agreed that they would meet again after the letter arrived. They heard their was an weekend cleanup scheduled for September 9, 10, 11, 12 with Fletcher Morgan, a promising youthful arborist, just beginning his career. Fletcher agreed to work for $50.00 a day.
By the time the weekend arrived for the clean up, the Residents who were aware of the issue, were on different pages. Some would were not willing to participate in the clean up because the letter had not arrived, and the meeting, that we said would happen, had not happened.
A powerful weekend of four days of Overgrowth Clean Up happened, but more than anything, I did not feel their support. The clock was ticking. I felt I had to take action based on the words of Sylvia. She said I had to show improvement if I wanted more than 30 days to make the verbal suggested Overgrowth Clean Up.
By September 12, major Overgrowth Clean Up was demonstrated, but numbers on the homefront were distraught that a Plan of Action was not in place before I took action. The Saga continued
as amazing Quintessential Solutions for the Compelling Health Issues Facing Us came to my aid. The night before flight, i worked late into the night packing while still fielding home issues. Then, I got up at 4 am to begin the final condensation of suitcases.
It was The Healing Hands of Morea Garcia, my most profound, stable, and loving friend, that got me to the San Diego Airport, where I had an effortless and most delightful morning of Take Off.
FLIGHT 208 AMERICAN AIRLINES TO JFK NYC
Feng Shui With Lurrae had suggested that I go the easy route. She said to get the help of American Airlines and allow them to provide me a wheelchair to get to the gate. I did not like the idea, however, after learning the details of how much exactly I could have as luggage, and how much as Carry On, I was faced with a dilemma. I had too much to carry on! I had a very large bag that Shelly Muhulland had sent from my Stonyfield Farm sponsor. Now that was an Organic Moment! I had a basket filled with my vital plant materials, Seeds of Change Seeds, and core items that help me do my own Plant Your Dream work. Morea waited at curbside with the support of the high security helpers.
Photos were taken.
Meanwhile I was interacting with the wonderful staff of American Airlines. They helped me
check in two bags curbside. It cost $25.00 + $30.00. No never mind. I combined things there. I had my trusty card, an organizing principal of my walking through life. I and my cart are one, a holdover from some past life in Europe from the Jewish Pushcart days.
I went to the AA counter. Opps! I could not take the cart on the plane. The AA agent, who worked for them for many years, sized up the situation instantly. She ordered me a wheelchair and the cart
went underneath the plane.
Then came the passage through TSA, the Security point. I had various FES, Flower Essence remedies, I had QuintEssential 0.9 and 3.3 with me in separate bags. I had various glass vials, and plant materials. I even had one BioSmart container of Organic Alfalfa, and a bouquet of Peppermint Scented Geranium from my home garden. Going through TSA was another delight!!!!!
I will write more about that later. One area of promise: Thousands upon thousands of
plastic gloves are used every month. I want to give props to TSA. I wrote them a complement.
BOARDING WAS ABOUT MAKING MORE FRIENDS
I wheeled my own chair to the door of the plane. There was a stunning presence of a Mother Queen, who had great stature. She caught my attention instantly. I am so glad that AA is not about just
have youthful aged flight attendants. She became my ally, as did others on the flight. I saw more work to be done here with American Airlines in the future. I took photos of the toilet paper and the foods operation.
THE AMAZING FLIGHT ACROSS COUNTRY
The flight was a Life Passage. I do not want to take the time now to write about this. Let it just be said that my row partner was an amazing man who works for a company that handles two trillion in assets for its clients. We connected. We have much to share. Because of compliance rules, I will go slow with saying too much about this relationship that has the potential of positioning Keep The Beet Media Stat, The World’s Talking Beet and her Beet Keeper Global Projects, exactly where she needs to be to do good in the world.
LANDING AND THE ESCAPE OF FAIRY DUST
Ouch and Joy! That was the message of my arrival at JFK. I was met by a most delightful woman, Joy Harris. She was there for me with a wheelchair. This felt like I was being guided through Japan on a Rickshaw (SP?). This was an amazing ride. She lives in Queens. She has kids and a good husband. I heard and did the Plant Your Dream work. I saw numbers of others who had dreams over their heads. I gave a lot of encouragement. At baggage, Feng Shui with Lurrae met me with another cart. My luggage showed up instantly. Joy was by now our ally. Joy’s friend, who worked at luggage, said I reminded him of Robert Blake, who began his career as a Little Rascal star of the 50’s.
ESCAPE OF THE FAIRY DUST
Incident of the Lost Fair Dust is recorded in this Plant Your Dream Blog. One of the two BioSmart Pots with organic alfalfa seeds growing feel twice. I dropped it once and scattered soil at the conveyor luggage line. I picked up as much as I could. Then, I made a big mistake. I did not take charge of setting up my basket on the spot. Feng Shui with Lurrae was concerned about a two hour drive. I allowed haste. By the time we got to her vehicle, the BioSmart container has overturned. Most of the soil and seeds were scattered over the entire airport!!!!

from Madison, CT
ITINERARY FOR SEPTEMBER 17, 2011
September 17, 2011 was Friday. I arrived Thursday night to Madison after crossing the George Washington Bridge Twice!!!!! After the Fairy Dust incident, the world of NYC had Shifted to another reality. It was ready for ZeroTree, after the Shift Toilet Paper made from bamboo and cotton lint. Feng Shui with Lurrae my trusted driver and handler on this remarkable eleven day Life Shifting trip, was lost in a momentary glitch between worlds.
One moment we were headed North; then all of sudden South. She did not know what to make of this! It had something to do with the power of our Word. I was talking to my niece Eva Becker, the beloved Science teacher of Hamilton High School in LA. Niece Eva Becker put out an intention that I would meet with her friend Jerry Bencher who has a penthouse in Manhattan. My nephews Morris Becker and David Becker, the outstanding History teacher, live in Crown Point. Just the mention of these names, who pray three 3X in the Jewish Orthodox Tradition, set in motion Invisible Forces who were along for the ride on my plants. Praise be told, Feng Shui with Lurrae and the State of New York had no idea what was riding in that vehicle!!!! Oh My God! Riding in our vehicle was the Fate of Humanity, and the History of Peace on Earth.
The ride home to Madison, Connecticut, crossed the George Washington Bridge a second time, nearby the teen neighborhood of Stephen Longfellow Fiske in New York, one of my three top songwriters. Then, we made it to a rest stop in Connecticut. We also passed the city where my plane ally lived. At the rest stop, I had more delightful experiences meeting my old friend from another life, Shelly the Yoga Teacher. It was love again at first sight. I was glad to see her. Her hubby was in the car. Glad this dream worked out for her that we planted centuries ago. She deserved that.
HAPPENINGS AT THE CONNECTICUT REST STOP
I had a lovely time at the rest stop, entertaining Feng Shui with Lurrae We took some great photos. I was thinking all the while of Jeremy Siefert who is making a great film about GMO’s in our foods. I took photos of the GMO’s at this H Food Court that offered foods that passed the Food Safety Modernization Act standard, but make most people sick. It is amazing to be what passes as Food Safety, truly. My favorite photo was in front of a Coke photo on the wall. Coke owns Odwalla, a juice company in the natural field that is now scaled up.
LITTLE COMPANIES WORK FOR BIG COMPANIES
Such is the way of Organic heading into the mainstream. The Biggies buy out the little organic fishling companies, much to the chagrin or delight of folks like Organic Spies Find Lies Undercover Agents, who may very well work for the elements that want to divide the Organic Field of Play, but that is another story.
ONWARD TO NEW ENGLAND!!!! HOORAY FOR MADISON!
I assume Madison is named after the president. I will ask Feng Shui With Lurrae. All I can say is, I am deeply touched by everything that happened to me Friday, September 17. I will never be the same. We warmed up our timing at a Farmers’ Market in a park-like setting. More photos were taken. My Plan A was thrown off when I realized that one of the core boxes from BioSmart Packaging did not arrive. This was to allow me to launch the growing of Organic Alfalfa Seeds across the East Coast in BioSmart Containers.
BIOSMART CONTAINER #???
I will leave this for pick up later. The supplies will arrive next time I come East to launch that part of the Organic Uprising Campaign and do some showings of Farmadeggon in Connecticut. That Seed Dream was planted by Feng Shui With Lurrae. Obviously, I will be back. I am profoundly touched
by what happened Dana’s Farm outside I believe in Guilford.
We arrived after the Farmers’ Market. I took photos along the way for our documentary and Youtubes, Being an Organic Uprising Or Farmadeggon? (Working Title…) Yikes #2. Oh my God, Dana’s farm. This is what my life is all about. At home I was talking about Overgrowth, here I was seeing a patch of sweet potatoes grown for the lovely leaves. I saw these growing last time I was East Coast in Florida. I visited Disney Epcot. That is another story.
Dana’s Farm. I have to repeat myself. Dana’s Farm.
Wait till you see the videos we made. Please. I need some sponsors for the rest of these.
The Return of America the Beautiful is growing from those fields, and maple syrup. One taste and the Farm Bill will be Organically grown. I have to remind Lurrae to bring along the bottle of Maple Syrup tomorrow.
THE TRANSFORMATION OF FENG SHUI WITH LURRAE
Feng Shui with Lurrae joins ranks of Raw Milk Drinkers following Farmageddon Screening in Arlington, VA, September 24, 2011 Karine Bouis-Towe, of Coalition for Farm Food Freedom is excited.
Photo shows final day photo of Feng Shui with Lurrae and Karine Bouis talking at the Tacoma Park Urban Homestead near University of Maryland. Lurrae is converted to raw milk!!!
She announces that September 24, 2011 in the eve when we are smoozing at Karine’s home.
DANA’S FARM VISIT
Let a few words to the wise be sufficient.
Dana’s Farm is what the Unseen War on American Family Farms is all about. The sad, sad part is that I am not sure that Dana, who is committed to a life of Voluntary Simplicity, and every Right Action that built the core of our nation, is endangered. I am not sure he knows the extent of the dangers looming. They are bigger than the hurricane Irene that destroyed his fields. Those fields will grow back. The dangers that loom now, are evolutionary Shifts, but gratefully, with the help of so many invisible Forces, I made it here just in the Nick of Time.
It is at this point where I better stop and give thanks to all who got me this far. I will name them elsewhere. These are my sponsors. They paid for my planefare, four day stay at the fabulous Biltmore Hilton, and entry to the incredible Organic Summit, a not to be missed event that happens each year at the #NaturalProduct Expo East in at the Baltimore Convention Center These paid for my ticket to the Organic Summit.
This gave me confidence that I am now a national voice in Organic Agriculture, in all Agriculture.
The Fight on the Homefront will resolve itself to Secure Our Organic Future. It just needs to settle
down. I have no more time for that battlefront at home. No more time for the clutter, or the attempt to make peace with cooperative Living that is anything but that.
We live in a land of laws, both of nature and man made. We simply have to play by the rules of the game. Rights. Rights. Rights. We have them. Nature has them. Cities have them. If we want to play, we have to pay. Sorry. The abundance is ours. All we have to do is get behind and push, even if that means letting the good come to us. The land where I live can be a park someday, but it needs to make peace with its Overgrowth. Dana knows about LIving within the Rules. There is much to be learned from him. More on this later. Chef Jem will be pleased with that footage.
FOR SEPTEMBER 17, 2011
I am writing this at 4:22 AM September 18, 2011. Yesterday, Saturday was profound.
I need to get back to bed. Here are a couple photos. I want to make a video
of Kelly Goddard of Bayberry Hill Farm, and also the Guilford Fair.
I will need sponsors to do that.
Here is a tidbit of how it went.
I PLANTED A SEED DREAM TO GET $1,000,000 TO BUY BACK THE BARBERRY HILL FARM WITH KELLY GODDARD
Video of Barbary Hill Farm to feature Your Enchanted Gardener’s favorite Cow.
Feng Shui with Lurrae reports on amazing happening of Jersey cow at Barberry Hill Farm who liked to be sprayed with Flower Essence Services Grace Flourish Remedy that heals Woman’s Issues. Your Enchanted Gardener says millions of hurting cows will benefit from Grace FES formula that heals woman’s Issues.
Your Enchanted Gardener is a Hit in the Barnyard. Horizon Organic, in its contracts with hundreds of farmers, does not prevent them from selling raw unpasteurized milk. Horizon will be asked to sponsor video showing Leslie’s favorite cow that lives at Barberry Hill Farm, Guilford, Connecticut.
Part of the Barberry Hill Farm Family, L to Right, Pat, Kelly, with Leslie, Patricia, the Kids of Kelly Goddard.
WALLENDA FLYING CIRCUS CLOWN AND LESLIE AT THE GUILFORD FAIR
I planted a seed dream for the health and Safety of the Wallenda Flying Circus Family.
What an honor. When I was a kid, I would see them at the Ringling Bros Circus. Some died in falls. America is on a high wire trapeze today. We deeply need a Seed Dream planted, a new Life Script. I will plant that during the next ten days.–Your Enchanted Gardener
ITINERARY FOR SEPTEMBER 18, 2011

ARRIVING IN WASHINGTON D.C.
We had a very hard time finding Lurrae’s friend’s home.
I saw the US Capitol for the first time as a adult. This was thrilling!
PACKING AND LEAVING MADISON
This was an early morning strenuous day packing and leaving from Madison to Washington D.C. Lurrae wanted to get to her friend’s house in D.C. At each rest stop, we had remarkable experiences turning every meeting an amazing time. Lurrae was doing the driving and this was hard on her by the time we arrived at her friend’s house. We arrived late and had a difficult time finding the place in Arlington, Virginia. I did too much talking over dinner, and had a bad feedback about this that was in my energy field the next day.
ITINERARY FOR SEPTEMBER 19, 2011
This was a very impactful day. Lurrae needed to rest. I was frustrated that this was my only day in Washington D.C., and I was stuck in Arlington, Virginia, so close.
AMAZING MEETING WITH SHARON ARDIS OF THE SPECIAL POLICE
She joins the Enchanted Garden Club. Yes!!!
NIGHTMARE DRIVE AROUND WASHINGTON D.C.
Late afternoon before the 20th speaking day at USDA.
I have to write this up. It was incredible. We could not find our way home. It took us four or more hours to find our way out of the maze. Truly a nightmare of endurance and testing. We could only laugh. The most difficult and exhausting moment of the trip.

Highlights of the day included:
Connecting with Jo Dickson, my dear friend, who works for New Hope Natural Media. She ran the show floor. What a most delightful relating!
Lurrae and I went to the Patch Adams event. This was a profound healing experience to spend time with this man who has dedicated his life to the practice of real medicine. Lurrae taped most of this talk. I heard a clown crying out for help. I gave $5.00 and revolved to help him raise the $250,000 he needed for his clinic project.

THE MEMBER’S MEETING. A DREAM COME TRUE, BUT SHORT MEMORY!
This was an amazing harvest hour, of connected with various projected sponsors of my trip. The new board was introduced. I got to share a lot of lightheartedness with Christine Bushway, CEO of the OTA. She touched me when she said her daughter was really moved by our interactions at the OTA Gala, Wednesday eve.
I was out of room on my camera and the wrong time!!!!
Horrible loss of room when I needed it most.
MY GOOD TALK
Got a lot of support. Said the right things. It is recorded.
THEN I WENT TO THE FARM AID BENEFIT AT THE PALE ALE HOUSE
I met the leaders of Farm Aid. This was very fulfilling. I took photos and did some interviews.
I spend time on the street in front of the Biltmore Hilton doing art with my camera set in the Magic Mode. I spend time with Robert Slovak, my sponsor. He was impressed with what I accomplished. I want to write up a report of who I introduced to this amazing Quintessential Solution.
GREEN LODGING AT THE HILTON REVISITED
This is a Seed Dream that the Dr. Bronner Magic Soaps and products would be in the Hilton Chain. This is a followup of a Seed Dream that was planted at the International Feng Shui Conference 2005 at the Hilton San Diego Bay Resort. While I was doing the Opening Ceremony visioning the future of Feng Shui with a future in sustainability, The HIlton Chain was joining the California Green Lodging Program. This was the first time I stayed at a Hilton Hotel since 2001 when I was at the Disney HIlton.
The Seed Dream would include QuintEssential Solutions to the Compelling Health Issues Facing Us being a part of the HIlton experience for employees. Some of these solutions, including Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps and Products will be at the Pacific Symposium launching of the next phase of Quintessential Solutions.
Committing Random Acts of Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty was on my mind throughout my East Coast Tour. This photo was taken right before leaving the Baltimore Hilton. Ralph Bronner, son of Dr. Emanuel Bronner, gave me this bumpber sticker that is now on the EG Mobile. I carried it with me through my journey of seven or more states. Ralph was still recovering at the time. We talked before my trip. I felt the Dr. Bronner energy with me on my trip. I knew his father. David, the president of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap, is a big inspiration to me and Dr. Bronner Family has helped my work.
GIVING BLESSINGS TO ADAM EIDINGER FOR THE RIGHT2KNOW MARCH
This was one of the last things I did in Baltimore. The Right2Know March was taking off from New York to Washington D.C. I had the opportunity to visit those states right before the tour and set a tone in my spirit for its success. This is a photo of Adam Eidinger who was instrumental in helping organize the march. I saw in the office of the Natural Product Expo East minutes before I left town.
THE RIGHT2KNOW MARCH: DAVID BRONNER IS ONE OF THE MAIN PLAYERS IN THIS
HE WILL HELP LABEL GMOs IN 2012 THROUGH WORK WITH THE CALIFORNIA BALLOT INITIATIVE
I did not see too much of David Bronner, President of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps in Baltimore. He is a hero in my eyes for our times. He is overshadowed by the energy of the family, including his grandfather Emanual Bronner. Please see Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soapbox to get a glimpse of the powerful humanity Activism that is carried forward every time a person purchases one of the Bronner Soaps and other products.
ITINERARY FOR SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 2011
THE UNSEEN WAR ON AMERICA’S FAMILY FARMS SEPTEMBER 24, 2011 IN ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA
Farmageddon: The Unseen War on American Family Farms One ticket provided entrance at the door, food from the dairy bar and the movie Farmageddon. The event included panelists Monica Corrado (benefits of raw milk), Jonathan Emord (FDA case), Liz Reitzig (Dan Allgyer case). I gave a firebrand rousing Pet Talk to stir the souls. My talk ended with number of people planting Seed Dreams and joining the Enchanted Garden Club.
This was a fulfilling experience. I wanted to connect the energy between the Organic Industry Stakeholders at the Natural Product Expo East and the Grassroots Activities, as I had promised. This was a tough energy to crack, but I shifted the scene here, amping up the energy.
Jack Moore, who was the M.C. said in a video that I was one of a kind. He said, he had never met anyone like me. I was just being myself, near the nation’s Capital in the energy of our founding fathers and mothers. My message was one of unity and support for the USDA Organic People’s Gardeners. At the beginning of the program, numbers of other panelists seemed to be poking fingers at the USDA and the abuse of power in Washington. I laid that responsibility for shifting the climate through the people in the room each being an Organic Uprising, Standing Up for Nature’s Original Technology.
I set the record straight. I met numbers of well meaning folks who work for the National Organic Board program, as well as made numbers of new USDA allies. The OTA Members’s Meeting of Organic Industry Stakeholders was abundant in love and friendship and well meaning intentions. Anyone who wants to waste their energy casting blame ought to take responsibility for the separations we are creating that are holding back the Tipping Point. My main theme is that
We have a Right2Know, and a Right to Choose. The film Farmageddon is an illustration of what happens when we allow people out of touch with the Beat of Nature to make the rules and go after our local organic farmers. Silly stuff. Let’s build a nation of gardeners.
I WANT TO SEE ONE MILLION YOUTH JOINING THE ORGANIC PEOPLE’S GARDEN PROJECT
Yes! Sec of Ag Tom Villsack did a good thing when he initiated the People’s Organic Garden Project. I am going to build upon that energy! Yes! Yes! Yes!

This was a difficult experience. I was grateful that we found our way there, with
Karine calling on the phone to guide us in. Liz Reitzig and Karine greeted us as we started to bring things out of the vehicle. This was my first meeting with Liz. I was taken with her energy. I was moved to see her in the film Farmageddon, as in art, so in life.

EVENING OF A SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2011
Sitting across of Karine Bouis-Towe, who came to national prominence milking a jersey cow within view of the U.S. Capitol in Spring 2011. Watch that Youtube here and read the story. What a delight working across the table from a young mom with three little boys. Outside in Takoma Park, Maryland, there are heritage, and cochin chickens, and the sound of big acorns from oak trees falling on the porch. She grew a lovely pot of alfalfa with organic beet seeds in the middle. This pot was the Show Plant at the Natural Product Expo East in at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Today many at the showing planted Seed Dreams in a pot of 25 year old soil from the Barberry Hill Farm in Guilford, Connecticut that I wheeled around the Expo. I will take some of the top layers home and put other samplings of soil in little packets for sale.

Henry David Thoreau,
His last book
was Faith in a Seed
“Though I do not believe
that a plant will spring up
where no seed has been,
I have great faith in a seed.
Convince me that you have a seed there,
and I am prepared to expect Wonders.”
–Henry David Thoreau
He loved science from an early age. He died in 1862.
Every ten years I republish and update my book Rekindling of Faith
The sight of a bulb
coming up from the soil
where last year it bloomed
(Oh now I remember)
confirms the on-going nature of life
inside me, restoring something
I’d given up on,
a feeling so deep
I can’t name it.
a seed idea I planted,
there will be a tomorrow.
AKA Your Enchanted Gardener
The seeds that both statements above refer to were organically grown.
Our past, present, and future will be organic because we are now Moving Organic Forward.
There are no other kind of seed to Rekindle Faith. –Leslie Goldman

“Leslie Goldman is a California real food activist.
They say all good things start in California and head east,
which is why Leslie’s voice is so illuminating
on the subject of food and farming.
His playful Keep the Beet Campaign speaks even to the
youngest child about the beauty and sanctity of nature.”

Always figured I’d wait for some desperate moment. Now it’s here.”
