I had the privilege of teaching hundreds of people in Guatemala through the Farmer-to-Farmer, Partners of the Americas, USAID volunteer program for 21 days. I made this video that shows how beautiful this country is and how hard working the family farmers are. I hope that by planting some seeds-of-change, using nature's natural organic ways, they will greatly benefit both in economics and in health.

Why? Our kids are our future! However; we have a huge concern about their disconnection from the land. Many only know that their food comes from a store. In fact, they can not identify vegetables plants. We tested this in Texas while teaching gardening in the schools and 90 percent of the kids could not name the vegetables we had planted in a portable bucket garden.
They say, if you want to influence people, do it while they are young, possible before the age of 9. We want to reach 1 Million new green thumbs. This photo shows a demonstration at a library. Just look at faces of the kid's and you can see and feel their excitement and enthusiasm.
They made newspaper pots, filled them with soil and planted a seed. This resulted in a hands-on take home
introduction to 'Gardening for Life'. Along with laminate instructions on how to make "Super Soils" and the paper pots. They also made plant labels from popsicle sticks and they got to wear green cloth thumbs.
We received an e-mail from a boy who went home and made a wooden raised garden bed with cardboard on top of the soil (all instructions on page 48 of our book). Gardening for Life - No Money Required book available on Amazon at

It is our pleasure to tell you about a new teaching tool we have. Last September, a new friend of ours, Mr. Godfrey Kamwendo came all the way from Malawi, Africa (through Sowers International) to our Montana garden to participate in a complete gardening workshop. We hired two professional videographers to film the workshop. After weeks of editing, we now have the well-documented "Gardening4Life" DVD (video) teaching tool. You can see us getting our hands dirty explaining step-by-step new ways to feed the world. Several new breakthrough ideas are documented in this DVD: "Ninja Earthworms" , Deep Mulch Gardening (no weeding, do digging, no tilling, no fertilizing and very little water is needed). Even the use of half-done compost that greatly boost food production along with cooking vegetables ... three stones and a pot right in the garden are covered.
