Nadine headed for work this morning with a lunch made from Organic foods from the Hillcrest Farmers’ Market January 8, 2012.

I had a delightful time preparing this for her. New housemate Nadine has been a joyous edition to our household. Summer Nash, my star player on the Aztec Volleyball team finished her Sophomore season and moved back home with mom, who is beginning a group home similar to ours. Nadine was primed to move in, and so in one week, as of this morning, Nadine is getting comfy in her new bedroom here at the Enchanted Garden Intentional Community.

Both Nadine and I were born in East Los Angeles. She was sent my way by old friend Rebecca Diamond of Braingems, who reports she had amazing results in personal health when she met her Enchanted Gardener about age 34. Nadine and Rebecca and friends. Nadine moved to San Diego for work.



HEALING FEELINGS

Payback time. Having Nadine in the house is bringing up childhood healing feelings growing up in East Los Angeles. Daddy Goldman, my poppa, was seldom home, it felt. I lost him to his work at the cemetary where he would pray for the dead every Sunday.

Gilbert Orozco, neighbor, was one of my first positive role models as a daddy. Alex, his son, was my best friend, and I would enjoy the interactions with the family. Rosalie was the mom, and I remember Alex had two sisters. The little one was Sylvia. There was another young girl who we called Bunny. Her mom was also friends with my mom. I believe I have written poems about this in Rekindling of Faith.

I have been feeling close to my mom in recent weeks. I have a sense she was guiding Nadine here to live.

THE OTHER DAY NADINE’S MOM CAME DOWN

Nadine’s mom Dolores and her boyfriend Bob came down the other day and this was a lovely meeting. There was so much love. My heart is touched. Nadine is close to her family and they wanted to see the place. Mom was very happy. We had a lovely tour.

CHICKEN SALAD FOR LUNCH

This is a organic chicken from Whole Foods Market HIllcrest purchased yesterday on a bed of Spring Green Mix pre-washed organic locally grown from Suzie’s Farm. The delightful edible flowers are from Suzie’s Farm.

I FELT LIKE A MOM THIS MORNING PREPARING LUNCH FOR MY LITTLE GIRL


I felt like a mom sending my child to kindergarden with a lunch pail.

I am hoping she is doing well. I know is a grown up, and at work, but something very sweet is welling up inside me from my childhood.



SANTA CRUZ BRAND ORGANIC PEANUT BUTTER
AND ORGANIC CELERY FROM JR ORGANICS



I am not too much of a peanut butter eater, but two brands of choice I have in our Enchanted Garden Pantry are Santa Cruz creamy peanut butter that came to us through my sweet friend, OTA past president, Julia Sabin, who is another sweetheart that touches my heart. Julia sent me some goodies for our pantry last year, when I put out a call.

FOOD TRADES FOR SERVICE HERE

I have a plan to trade Natural Products for services here. There is just so much to do at home managing this 1/3 acre. It takes a whole household who want to get involved in some of the lovely ideas that I see for 2012.

MY OTHER FAVORITE BRAND IS EDEN FOODS PEANUT BUTTER

My other favorite brand of peanut butter is of course Eden Organics. They have a full line of products that I love. The other day, Lauren spiced my the vegetarian stew we made with one of the rice and beans combinations from Eden Foods. These come in a BPA Free can liner. It is very important to choice Eden Foods for this reason, if you eat food from cans.

RALLY ROUND OR ROUND UP HERBICIDE HERE IN ALONG OUR AROSA CANYON RIM?


I am in the middle of a three-month campaign to work with our neighbors along the Arosa Canyon Rim. There is still pressure to use Roundup Herbicide. I want to trade some products with the housemates for extra help. Nadine put in an hour last Friday initiating the project dig up some Arundo Donax. It was heavy going, but we made fun of it. Her 14 year old daughter Lauren was here! That was so sweet!


DISAPPOINTMENTS AND NEW HOPE


I have been wanting to reach out to my Jewish community with Sacred Food Ideas, but of late, I have been very frustrated, as if all my good efforts are not valued, but Nadine is fertile new territory for someone who says, “Delish!” when I offer her some organic food. I am very concerned for our youth. I want to reach out to 1,000,000 teens and turn them on to gardening. I sent Lauren home with some Kamut seedlings to grow her dreams. Hopefully, she will followup. Then, I will only have 999,999 more youth to motivate to grow some of their own food.

NADINE’S HEALTH TRANSFORMATION

Nadine is a new member of the Beet Keepers Enchanted Garden Club. We are moving into 2012, a time when we are all asked to Shift. She is coming in wanting to find a good place to live where she can learn new ways to be healthy. This is making me happy to participate in this Journey.



QUINTESSENTIAL 3.3 FOR OPTIMUM MINERALIZATION SUPPORT

Nadine’s was working as part of a crew today doing staging. I wanted her to have good energy for the work that can be taxing. Most young people of her generation are lacking in the micro-nutrients that were in our fruits and vegetables a few generations ago. One of the Quintessential Solutions for the Compelling Health Issues Facing Us is Quintessential 3.3 for Optimum Mineralization. Olympic Athletes use this remedy for a boost. This is sea water from Marine Plasma beds where the ocean is very vital. It is the same content as in the Original Quinton Marine Plasma that has been here for more than 111 years. This is one of my favorite remedies for energy.
