MORE ON….THE MAYOR’S FORUM AT THE BRIGHT GREEN FUTURE CONFERENCE
Carolyn Chase, the founder of the San Diego EarthFair, Co-founder of the San Diego EarthFair shined as M.C of the Mayor’s Forum. Both candidates were impressive. Nathan Fletcher showed himself as an independent Republican candidate, and Bob Filner impressed me with his environment stands. Filter’s bio note included spending a few months in jail in the 60’s as part of the Free Riders during the Martin Luther King era. I had a sense that Filner would make a great mayor. Nathan Fletcher also spoke strongly, and showed himself a great candidate. Filner has served in Washington as a congressman but leaving his Washington Post with years of experience in government to run for mayor of San Diego. Fletcher in Sacramento as an assemblyman. The election is in 2012. Two of the other mayor candidates were invited but did not accept the invite to speak about pressing environmental issues facing the San Diego community.

BOB FILNER ON S-510: THE FOOD SAFETY MODERNIZATION ACT
I had a chance to ask Bob Filner about his support of S-510, the Food Safety Modernization Act that was one of the main pieces of legislation that I worked against last year. He did not seem to recall the bill. When I jogged his memory by saying it increased FDA authority of food safety, he seemed to matter of factly say that he had voted for the Bill. I did not sense that too many legislators really grasped the significance of the bill that has given the FDA the power to go after local organic farmers. Few of our elected reps took time or had the time to read the bill that passed eventually as a Hail Mary Pass on as a rider on the Cash for Clunkers Senator Harry Reid Bill. My position is that we are in a critical Food Emergency in America that will take no less than the Military farming and a nation of organic gardeners joining the People’s “Organic” Garden Initiative of Sec of Ag Tom Vilsack to get us out of the horrific state we are in as a nation and a world.

REP BOB FILNER, THE NEXT MAYOR OF SAN DIEGO, VISITS WITH LESLIE GOLDMAN YOUR ENCHANTED GARDENER AND ARUNDO DONAX PLANT FROM THE ENCHANTED GARDEN INTENTIONAL COMMUNITY
I won the support of the USDA Organic sector, Organic Industry Stakeholders, and Grass Roots Activists on my recent 21 Day Tour of the East Coast and the City of Angels. I will volunteer to be Bob’s Enchanted Gardener for the City of San Diego, after he is elected. I see him winning the office of Mayor.
I had a sweet feeling for Bob Filner, and a lot of compassion. I think he could make a good mayor of San Diego. I did not have a sense that he grasped the importance of S-510, The Food Safety Modernization Act, that has given the FDA unbridled powers to harm local organic farmers as they please and harass private Buying Clubs such as Rawesome in Venice and Grass Fed on the Hill in Washington D.C. All this overreaching has inspired the new national Farm Food Freedom Coalition that will be tested the FDA on November 1. In L.A. a couple weeks ago, I attended Superior Court as the Rawesome Three were before the judge. A number of the people in court that day are in the film Farmageddon. All this overreaching, in my opinion, comes from the mind of Michael R. Taylor, our Food Czar, who is behind all that.. Michael R. Taylor wants to bring the FDA into alignment with the international Codex Alimentarius Commission. All this stuff about Food Safety is basically about Trade and the emerging competition from local organic farmers and these buying clubs that do not pay taxes. The USDA has a $7 million budget to manage a 26 Billion a year organic industry that is growing every year. The FDA current position is that people do not have a right to choose the food that feel they deserve. I do not believe it has too much to do with Real Food Safety. All this is now being tested in the courts.
ENCHANTED GARDEN MAKEOVER AND OVERGROWTH CLEAN UP NEWS
SYLVIA SOWADSKI OF THE SAN DIEGO FIRE PREVENTION BUREAU RAVES ABOUT OUR SPONSOR SUPPORTED PROJECT TO TEACH THE CITY OF SAN DIEGO HOW MUCH MONEY THEY CAN SAVE BY USING OUR RECOMMENDED NATURAL APPROACHES TO MANAGING OUR STANDS OF ARUNDO DONAX
WATCH SYLVIA HERE.
Sylvia Sowadski, of the FIre Prevention Bureau is our ally giving us coaching for our Overgrowth Clean Up. We are going to help the FIre Prevention Bureau educate about fire prevention and save the City of San Diego landfill costs. We have already shown that Arundo Donax can be mulched. This was thought impossible by the Miramar Greenery. We are seeking funds and grants to do further projects to show what is possible at this critical time in our history when many are nature deprived.
BRIGHT GREEN FUTURE FOR ARUNDO DONAX IN SAN DIEGO: THIS VALUABLE PLANT CAN BE MULCHED AND IS A POTENTIAL SOURCE OF BIOMASS FOR FUELS
The Miramar Greenery and the San Diego Fire Bureau were under the impression that Arundo Donax–before we began our demo project- could not be mulched. We now have successfully mulched it. There are a number of large stands of it bordering the Arosa Canyon, where I live. I am currently in a research project with the help of sponsors to show the many uses of this valuable plant that many consider a weed from hell. One of the fastest growing plants on earth, Arundo Donax is currently being researched as a tremendous source of Biofuels by one company in Georgia. I sense, if managed properly, it could be a source of great economic fortune for San DIego.
ENCHANTED GARDEN MAKEOVER AND OVERGROWTH CLEAN UP EVENT SCHEDULED FOR 9 AM-5 PM SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2011
