Sustainable Living Among the Trees

In the distance the towers of Surfers as portrayed in Redemption Towers but now I live amongst the trees and aspire to live at one with our planet.

Yes those are bales of organic sugar cane you see scattered around the garden and they are in the process of breaking down to enrich the clay soil.

My pride and joy is the food forest area which took such a hit when the house next door burnt down, but is gradually recovering and starting to produce fruit which I dream will become plentiful enough to share in the near future.

Community Garden, Organic Food, Color & Creativity

Color and creativity abound among the vegetables at Varsity Lakes Community Garden.

A hot summer evening saw Katrina finishing off a mosaic table for the community hub while among the vegetables patches other members creative projects can be seen.

Shared community and good food enables the creative spirit to flourish.

Fresh Organic Food at Community Garden

There is nothing like fresh food picked directly from your community garden plot, and so much variety.

The plate above includes kale, broad beans, beet greens, snow peas, yellow cauliflower, broccoli flowerettes, baby carrots, perilla and coriander.

As well as the great food a garden does become a community and you learn and share so many ideas and plants.

Together we are learning all the time how to create stronger and better food.

Very dry at present but still the gardens keep thriving and with the ongoing plantings of food trees the garden will provide even more  bountiful food as time passes.

Can Food Starve Cancer?

The sooner a cancer is treated the more likely you will survive.

But we can also help to stop cancers forming by using food.

This is done by using food containing angiogenesis inhibitors that stop  microscopic cancers that form in us all from accessing a blood supply which enables their growth.

Angiogensis foods include organic and sustainable green tea, turmeric, cinnamon, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, oranges, grapefruit, lemons, apples, pineapples, kale, bok choy, garlic, tomatoes, olive oil and dark chocolate.

Learn more about these foods at "The Angiogenesis Foundation"

Today in the United States, by the simple acts of feeding ourselves, we are unwittingly participating in the largest experiment ever conducted on human beings.

Each of us unknowingly consumes genetically engineered food on a daily basis. 

The risks and effects to our health and the environment are largely unknown.

Yet more and more studies are being conducted around the world, which only provide even more reason for concern.

We are the oblivious guinea pigs for wide-scale experimentation of modern biotechnology.

 GMO OMG tells the story of a fathers discovery of GMOs in relationship to his 3 young children and the world around him.

We still have time to heal the planet, feed the world, and live sustainably. But we have to start now!

The Color and Vigor of a Subtropical Spring

With a long, hot and unpredictable global warming summer ahead am appreciating  quiet moments in my garden enjoying the colors and vigor of a subtropical spring.

Even the heat of the flower's color shares what lies ahead.

No fragile pastel shades here just strong vibrancy to survive where the weather gets tough.

Organic Food Garden Abundance

A hot, hot day, but a walk with a camera round my organic food garden at the day's end is always invigorating.

Mulberries taste so sweet straight from the tree, and blossom on the new limes shows promise.

Love the mature trees at the back of my property.

Good to see buds on the roseapple tree.

My future food forest is starting to show form and who can resist sunny nasturtiums.
