Leslie Goldman, “Your Enchanted Gardener,” Plants Seeds of Success for super Ripe People and their Dreams. Leslie is a noted ceremonialist in the eyes of Mother Earth and a full time blogger. He records his ongoing activities and mystical adventures on the Plant Your Dream Curezone (13 million page views) and he writes about his Projects and Sponsors as part of the Non GMO, Organic & Fair Trade Shopping Guide on Plant Your Dream Word Press (1 million page + views).
Leslie travels in a 1968 Volkwagen van, a celebrity in her own right. A conversation starter, this classic 68 is on The Enchanted Garden Mobile’s Journey to Win Back Our Sacred Seeds. Leslie is called California’s Johnnie Appleseed. “Their” mission–he and his vehicle- is to alert Rare Seeds, individuals living out their soul purpose, to the power that comes from growing out original heirloom seeds. Growing these seeds honors biodiversity of the gene pool and keeps vibrant the unique cultural history carried forward in each seed. Growing these seeds reconnects us to our own #RareSeed nature and showers us with plant Blessings.
Leslie is equally inspired tending a few Seed Dreams of his own and others on the 1/3 acre land he shares with others within walking distance of San Diego State University. He names the property an Enchanted Garden intentional Community and its latest projects is the Enchanted Garden Rare Seed Outpost and its centerpiece, the #SacredSuccessCircle where he tend dreams.
A long time Food Activist working with local organic farmers in San Diego. In 2015, he intends to again travel as he did in 2012-2013-2014 to be a teacher at the National Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa, a gathering place for #RareSeed Seed Freedom advocates.
His introduction to health principles came with training from Dr. Bernard Jensen (1908-2001), an elder in the natural healing arts who inspired him to “Keep The Dream Alive!” That dream is that natural healing and natural health is possible befriending Nature’s Original Technology. Leslie is equally inspired by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely (1905-19790, co-founder of Rancho La Puerta, that began as the Essene School of Life around WW2. Both men introduced him to a foundation in health that bridges centuries of understanding the ways of nature.
Food Reform in America
Leslie’s current work is dedicated to Food Reform in America through seeing ancient wheat, Job’s Tears, and other heirloom plant friends as teachers. He is cultivating a grassroots movement that is Outgrowing GMO through Winning Back Our Sacred Seeds. As a ceremonial, Leslie’s personal testimonial is that we are in an emphatic relationship to nature and her plants. The influence of plants as well as our behavior impacts climate. This can include bringing rain even in the midst of drought when we acknowledge seeds as sacred and when we plant them with intention.
Leslie was given a United Nations Peace Medal for the work he would do in his lifetime by then Under-Secretary general Robert Muller around 1983. That work continues as he openly blogs about his personal journey, breakdowns transformed into breakthroughs, and campaigns to inspire the awareness that we are ALL ONE love, growing in the same pot, HIs inspiration has touched many.
The book “The Ultimate Gardener,” The Best Experts’ Advice for Cultivating a Magnificent Garden with Photos and Stories (HCI, 2009) credits him with six photos. The dedication says, ““To Leslie Goldman, The Enchanted Gardener, for planting dreams and seeds of inspiration. To all those who garden and for those who dream to have a garden one day.”
His deep passion to influence the growing out of biodiverse culture is focused through his work with the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Collection and its Northern California home, the Petaluma Seed Bank. The Baker Creek collection contains more than 1600 @RareSeeds varieties that belong in the hands of Rare Seed gardeners.
As Rare Seeds grow these varieties, we reawaken our awareness that the Earth and the Soul are Soil mates so Plant Your Dream, says Your Enchanted Gardener. Leslie Goldman.
