Roundup Herbicide and Arundo Canyon Surgery Scheduled For Today, 12-15-2011 Along the Rim of the Arosa Canyon

Fred Clark, (R), Program Director for the Alpha Project, with Leslie Goldman, AKA Your Enchanted Gardener, December 15, 2011 at the Enchanted Garden Intentional Community Growing Grounds along the Arosa Canyon Rim, within walking distance of SDSU.

WHAT IS THIS PLANT YOUR DREAM BLOG ALL ABOUT?



December 15, 2011 goes down in Enchanted Garden history as the day that huge Arundo Donax patches on the Arosa Canyon Rim, a canyon I have named by that name, within walking distance of San Diego State University (SDSU) were cut down with chainsaws and implements designed to separate The Giant Reed as it is called for the roots. The plant itself, for those who want to invest their precious time, has been a subject that has been consuming my attention for more than two months. The plant is called Devil Weed. It is currently a source of nightmare to Park and Recreation Departments who kill it with Roundup Herbicide, the main breadwinner for a little Saint Louis company that began decades ago that has now become the centerpiece in one of the most compelling dramas facing the survival of the human race: That drama involves the impending loss of heirloom biodiverse seeds, the essence of life on earth.

This one little company, through participating in the climate of war against nature helped end the war in Vietnam by created a substance called Agent Orange, a nerve killling chemical that later was absorbed into the bodies of our own national heroes, our men in the service. It then produced generations of deformed babies who are known as Agent Orange Babies.

There are places in India today where mothers have the anquish of giving birth to other babies born with no skin at all. Their are dogs who roam the neighborhood and smell the little babies and their pain. They is a stench that goes out from these bodies that cannot live a normal life and likely will not grow up. The deformity can be traced to an abuse of chemistry and the making of substances to beat the natural system of organic agriculture that has been a part of the human experience since human beings first evolved.

Some believe God had a plan for humanity. There are various creations stories. Some speak about a Fall and a Rising up of humanity that comes through various seeds rising up. I can this rising up an Organic Uprising. I call it a state of awakening where more and more of us can be found daily Standing Up for Nature’s Original Technology.

Nature does not like Roundup Read Herbicide. Scientific America in this article calls the weed whacking herbicide dangerous to human cells, and yet is most “normal” people still consider it harmless and safe. As Liora Leah, author of the Mother Earth Heal Blogs writes, Roundup is meant to kill. Liora Leah is a mother. She was once a social worker but during her college years, she needed money. She got a job cleaning houses, but no one told her that you are not suppose to mix lysol and Chlorine bleach. These chemicals came together in an unholy alliance, as they do in many of our lives today, and blew out her ability to have the kind of life that many of us want–the ability to work a normal job and do a normal living.

Liora Leah, who writes this blog on Curezone.com, that is dedicated to Educating rather than Medicating, was harmed. That is likely why she is so upset in her recent blog post about her inner guidance asking her to pray for Monsanto.

PRAYER FOR MONSANTO By Liora Leah
http://curezone.com/blogs/fm.asp?i=1891024

Monsanto is the name of that little St Louis company that sold the chemicals that helped end the war in Vietnam. They are also now producing and earning money from the sale of the most popular weed killer in America and the world, Roundup Herbicide.

On December 15, 2011, the threat of Roundup Herbicide came home.

Neighbors around the Arosa Canyon Rim are now using Roundup Herbicide. They are using it under the threat of a time clock that unless they clear out patches of Arundo Donax, The Giant Reed, they will receive fines and possible leans on their homes. The people having the ability to fine are good people. They are working in coordination to help prevent fires. The people who are being forced to do the Overgrowth Cleanup are also good people. The people who work for that little Saint Louis company that is now a multi-national corporation implicated in the loss of human seeds and plant biodiversity of seeds is has now come here.

I AM NOT INTO FIGHTING MONSANTO.
I AM INTO EDUCATING MY GOOD NEIGHBOR

Neighbors are people who do good by you. I have many good neighbors. For years, we never talked. I have explained our boundaries that we lived with in this Plant Your Dream Blog, called “I Love Monsanto” is the Near Official U.S. Policy. You can read the background of this unusual relationship between our 1/3 acre and their land that comes up from the abyss of the Arosa Canyon on the other side to own the very land that we garden without harmful herbicides or pesticides.

I calll our land the Enchanted Garden Intentional Community Growing Grounds. It is here where, I in my own version of insanity, believe, that the end of Roundup is now being seeded as men–more than ten of them–in a Recovery program called Alpha Project call here hired to eradicate the Devil Weed called Arundo. This was done to protect our homes from fire, to create defensible space that would keep flames from burning us in the case of fire.

So that is the story. A plant called Arundo got in the middle of the human drama of a little company called Monsanto and a stange to some man, who calls himself Your Enchanted Gardener, who was once given a United Nations Peace Medal for the work he would do in his life.

I am about that work now.
I am about God’s good work as best as I know how.
I am about being a good neighbor.
I am about finding the good in Monsanto and helping to return it to being a little
Saint Louis company.

These are my notes from December 15, 2011,
the day three tons or more of Arundo were cut and trashed to the San Diego landfill.

Roundup was not used, as anticipated, but the clock is still ticking,
and you are invited to catch wind of the story.

RAW NOTES DECEMBER 15, 2011 MY GARDEN MANAGEMENT JOURNAL

These are notes that express the feeling tone of the day, December 15, 2011. About ten workers showed u to cut down the Arundo Donax on the Rim of the Arosa Canyon. They did not spray yesterday or and will not be a part of the spraying= Friday. They just cut the Arundo and hauled it off to the San Diego dump, the landfill, where it will likely be destined to rot and take up valuable space now at a premium.

They were from the Alpha Project. They were not qualified to use the Roundup, but that is still the plan. Today was a shocking day, loosing so much of the landscape. I made friends with a number of the workers from the Alpha Project.

These notes may not make much sense.

I served them water and make friends.

Other Blogs in this series may make more sense….
The expression of chaos reflects what was happening to the land.

Photos tomorrow, December 16, 2011.

I will address some of the comments that were made on Facebook.

I am exhausted now….and going to bed.

Closeup Arundo Donax leaf taken December 14, 2011 on the Arosa Canyon Rim. This stand of Arundo Donax part of a stand that is scheduled to be cut and eradicated beginning today.

THIS WAS MADE DECEMBER 14, 2011, THE DAY BEFORE THIS STAND WAS TAKEN OUT

This experience communing with the Arundo was my initiation into The Arundo Tribe.

TODAY IS DECEMBER 15, 2011

Today is December 15, 2011. I can see lights across the Arosa Canyon where my good neighbors also have their lights on. it is not 6:19 am. The first bird sounds occurred less than five minutes ago, and the first light is beginning to show through the darkness. I got up and prepared a quart of Puritive water from the filter and added one Active H-Minus tablet and one vial of 3.3 Optimal Mineralization. I am not fully conscious. I just put the Active H in my mouth of a mill of a second. You are not suppose to do that. I grabbed it out and put it in the glass bottle formerly filled with Santa Cruz Organic Mongo Lemonade that then president of the Organic Trade Association the most delightful Julia Sabin had sent for my newly evolving project here–the Enchanted Garden Pantry.

6:25 am

I hear the first crow.
I hear a call and response
in the Arosa Canyon.
Another Bird is chiming in at a different louder pitch
its throat i can imagine and mouth open turned upward.
There are more crow sounds.
There is some kind of early morning alert going on.
The crow is flying around in the incoming light
i imagine, but who am I to say?
What do I really know of animal and bird life.
I have only lived on the side of this canyon
for 40 year years.

It is 6:26 am

Another different kind of bird sound, it is a call.

More…6:27:16 am..Same bird.

IT IS A DAY TO TWITTER

It is a day to take good notes.
It is a day in the History of Peace on Earth.

PEACE ON EARTH

Peace on Earth does not start pretty,
but I started this day pulling one of James Wanless’s Voyager Tarot cards.
The card I picked is Balance.
That was already what I was feeling and wanting inside myself.
Balance will be needed on this day that is scheduled to begin to see
more of an open Arosa Canyon.

YESTERDAY

Yesterday. I am surpised how many hours I was able to work. Maybe it was because I took time to visit the Arosa Canyon. Amazing. Truly Amazing. MY Love Affair with the Arundo official began for me on December 11, 2011 at the Hillcrest Farmers’ Market. That was the first time I did Blessings ever there. Sticks of Arundo Donax were my instruments of Blessing. At the end of the Farmers’ Market, I was blessing my old dear friend Azeba from Eretria, Africa. She makes international food there at the Hillcrest Farmers’ Market. I touched her on her right shoulder, head, and left shoulder with a little piece of The Giant Reed that has been held Sacred and appreciated by many cultures through the ages.

Oh my Grand. I hae a front row seat on history. I can hear the sounds of traffic behind me on College Avenue. It is Thursday.

Oh Lady Bird?
What cay you this early morning? 6:33 am. I hear you.
I send you love. Can you feel me? Do you read me?
Are you one with me? Am I one with you?

DRINK WATER, LESLIE!!!

Balance, Leslie, Balance!

FIRST PUBLISHING NOW WITHOUT A PHOTO

Now.

6:36 am

Moire car sounds wizzing by.
The sound of tires against the cement.
The ground may be wet.
I heard dripping off the side of my roof earlier.
I went to check.
Yes, there are rain drops from the roof still falling on this day
when Roundup Herbicide will also touch the roots of Arundo
if sprayed directly or painted.

WHAT IS THE WIND NOW?

What is the temperature now?
It is certainly cold, a wintery cold morning.
I do not think there is much opportunity for a fire in the canyon today.
You could not strike a match against the Arundo that will be cut.
It is full, as full of moisture as it can get.
The Arundo is full of moisture.

TWITTER #1 TO DO
6:41 am

This would be a perfect day for the mechanical extraction of the roots of Arundo Donax (The Giant Reed). A person not set on using Roundup Herbicide has been given a rare gift. The soil is soaking, sopping with water.

BF/TW

If Best Friend/Twin Soul were here now she would be sleeping in my bed. Thank God. If she were up to pee
she would be screaming at me. My fingers are cold as ice. My neck is wrapped in one of the scarves Feng Shui With Lurrae send me last year for a birthday gift. I am wearing my yellow thick robe. I have on a blue warmth catcher shirt, what do you call them? I am not fully in sync.

NO BIRD SOUNDS
6:43 am
December 15, 2011

My eyes are thick a bit with some chemical feeling, maybe it is just tiredness. I worked and sat most of the day, other than the time I spend with the Arundo. Oh my God! Oh my Lover, Arundo. Thank you so much for showing me your inner mystery.

Please post the photo of my leaf structure that comes out of an upper node now.
–Member of the Arundo Tribe Speaks.

Holy Shift! Oh My God.
I am initiated into the Arundo Tribe now.
It happened yesterday.
I spent more than 90 minutes among the Arundo.
I made much video.
My life was transformed.

6:46 am

I AM GOING TO UPLOAD THE REQUESTED PHOTO OF AN ARUNDO LEAF

It is December 15, 6:55 am

I got up to go find my new Iphoto and saw the Arundo outside of my window for the first time this morning. Hi, sweetheart. I love you!

My Imac was temporary frozen. Something going on with the G-Raid backing up. It is quiet now. Switched to the Laptop.

Fingers are freezing.

THE IMAC IS FROZEN

I opened Iphoto to get the photo I wanted to upload. The Imac is frozen. On the MacBook Pro Laptop to the East. Restarting the Imac.

IT IS 8:09 AM: I AM FEELING NERVOUS

I am feeling the energy of others nearby outside the Rim of the Arosa Canyon. They may be walking on the property nearby outside my window. I am on alert. My kidneys are starting to feel uncomfortable. I need to get dressed and go check out what I am feeling. Murmurs of voices? Am I making this up? What am I feeling. Red Alert. Take FES, Flourish Flower Essences, Post Trauma Stabilizer now, Leslie.

GO DO IT

Prep for the day.

O.K. TOOK POST TRAUMA STABILIZER

I feel a bit calmer…8:13 am
My nervous system is one with this Arosa Canyon.
Yuck. Is it me they will be cutting into;
Did I ask for this?

OUT THE WINDOW

Group of men walking through our organic garden area down the canyon.

Put on clothes, Went to follow them.

Good Neighbor is with them. I want to be non obtrusive to start with my camera.

Good Shot. OMG. I am out of batteries. Missed my shot.

GN (Good Neighbor) with among them. He is good man.
Good men use Roundup Herbicide too.

We share some words.

I know his dad had a stroke over the weekend.

I ask for no Roundup Herbicide again on the patch nearest my house.

He says O.K. I have put 16 hours into clearing this patch.

I shake all their hands. I ask the name of one. His name is Chris.

DAVE KNOWS I WANT TO SAVE THE ARUNDO

Dave is compassionate. He says, that if it were up to him, he would not be doing this.

He is walking off. I follow onto the street. He says, that there are a lot of other patches of Arundo to Save.
“There are a lot of other canyons in San Diego, he says, where the Arundo will need my help.

That seems a nice thing to say.

I shake the hand of Fred Clark, the team leader.

I offer him use of our bathroom.
I will go move the EG Mobile. Alpha Project helps the Homeless. That is good.

I will go move the EG MOBILE NOW.

They will bring in a truck.

I have words with Fred Clark.

How will you use Roundup? He says they will not use Roundup Today for environmental reasons.
I ask if they know how to use Round up. They tell me they will not be the ones using it for environmental
reasons. There will likely not be Roundup today.

The ground is sopping wet.

I tell Fred it would be a good day to remove some roots by hand.

The ground is perfect for Mechanical Extraction of the Arundo rather than the Roundup herbicide.

I want to see an end of Roundup Herbicide come out of this.

I am going to move the EG Mobile.

They are starting to cut Arundo.

I want to collect some for future positive uses.

I want to make a fence of Arundo Donax.

THEY ARE USING CHAINSAWS

I hear cutting.
It is 8:41:07 am

I hear voices.

11:41 am
EVERYTHING IS GOING GOOD

Making friends with the Alpha Project.

They break for lunch and I will have Patrick up for an Omelete.
I am working on a Seed Dream for Clinton.
He wants to be a millionaire.
That is simple.
Find better uses for this crop of Arundo.
See it as a Crop.
Harvest it. No need to trash something this valuable.

ABOUT TO CUT INTO THE PATCH I FILMED YESTERDAY

on the run.
Catch up later!

PS SERVING THEM PURITIVE WATER IN GLASS CONTAINER FOR OUR FILTER

SERVING THE GUYS IN BIOSMART CUPS AND MARKING THEIR NAMES ON IT

I AM SAD I DO NOT HAVE HELPERS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE

I COULD GET THEM TO CUT ME A SIX FOOT FENSE FOR OUR FUTURE URBAN FARM

SOME OF THE GREEN STUFF ON TOP OUR FUTURE GOAT COULD EAT

I NEED ANOTHER CAMERA FOR FILMING…

Oh, I do have another camera! MY IPHONE.

START USING IT IPHONE AND UPLOAD PHOTOS

Work Smarter, LEslie–Keep The Beet.

11:46 am

WEARY, BEEN OUT ATTEMPTING TO PROTECT SOME PLANTS

Put Caution tape on a few plants in the garden between the path out to the street and the Arundo Donax patch that is being eradicated. Lots of positives to report. Patrick is the supervisor. He is from Mississippi. I took a top of pictures. He has worked for the Alpha Project for seven years. There was just cutting today. There is a tool that works very well on Arundo, better than a chain saw.

I have not thought about asking them to cut out some roots. That would help to save the area from Roundup. My Good Neighbor paying for this today said he would allow no roundup on a little hilly part closer ot my house. What was our vegetable garden has been stepped on a lot. It is all compacted. It would have been good to have more helpers from our end.

THERE WERE PLENTY OF FENCE MAKING MATERIALS

I was able to cut one size piece of Arundo Five feet long. This could be a model for cutting other sticks for fences. If I can get help from Andrew, I could have materials for many fences, but I am not sure.

RICKY

I made friends with RIcky. I did a healing treatment on him.

CLINTON

Clinton left early. I did not see him later.

RICKY WAS USING THE BLOWER AT THE END ON THE STREET AND BLEW SOME LEAVES INTO OUR ENTRY PATHWAY

I asked him to come in and blow out back. He did. That brings to mind a friend who hates blowers.

FM iS TODAY

There was some tension between the guys. Some upset that others do not work as hard as they do. Some left early. They did three truckloads at least and three more tomorrow.

RICKY PULLED OUT ONE PILE THAT I HAD GATHERED

I had a couple piles that were on Good Neighbors land that I pulled and paid to be pulled into our driveway. I had some pulled out by RIcky.

WORKING WITH THE ALPHA PROJECT

This is a good idea. There is an endless supply of Arundo that is cleared every third job, Ricky tells me.

SHREDDDER TOMORROW

Tomorrow will be the ultimate scene.

Fletcher and James will be doing shredding for Chris, the neighbor to the East. That will be a scene to have it all going on at once.

That will be an education…There will be mulch flying all over. Fletcher called me and I said go ahead and shred tomorrow.

I am not sure how I will play our leftover pile. Some of it is Good Neighbors paid and pulled for on my land.

EASIER TO DESTROY THAN TO BUILD UP

It is amazing how easy it is to destroy, and how delicate life is.
The entire area where I communes yesterday is now gone. I got there late and did not watch it going down.
Sorry for that Arundo…There are still some Arundo on the ground from that patch. I will gather some of that. I would like to have many more for fences, or at least for the December 31 event. I wore my white shirt all day and my USDA tag. There are about ten guys on this project. They are an army. They could be doing a lot of good if taught to get the Arundo into some life serving paths. I talked to Clint about that. Hope I see him tomorrow.

I am exhausted.
I want to check on them one more time maybe get a photo with the guys.

2:53 pm

Goldman and the Alpha Project. Get the photo…

yes. do it…
