Organic Living for All

This is my local organic nursery and garden center, where the owner teaches neighbors like me how to grow organic vegetables in soil that is basically beach sand. I’ve been using her soil amendments that rebuild and reminerlize the soil so that anyone can grow healthy, nutritious and nutrient-dense food in their own backyard. If I can grow organic food in my beach sand, you can grow it too.

Sonic Bloom

I first put this in a book I wrote in 1990. What inspired me then and now is that the whole technology is based on the fact that the early morning singing of birds trigger plants to open their stomata–infinitesimal mouth-like pores that allow oxygen and water to pass out of the leaf while carbon dioxide and other gases move in to be transformed by photosynthesis into sugars. The music of nature, it seems, is vital to healthy plants. Sonic Bloom is an organic spray that is applied to the leaves of plants along with the specific sound frequency that induces stomata to open. The results are amazing.
