Healing Gardens

When we are gardening/farming we can think on these scriptures:

Old Testament

Genesis 1:11-13 NIV - 11God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds."  It was so. 
12The land produced vegetation, plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it, according to their kinds.  God saw that it was good. 
13There was evening and there was morning, the 3rd day.
Genesis 2:4-15 NIV -
4When the Lord God made the earth and the heavens
5.and no shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth and no plant of the field had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth; there was no man to work (cultivate/tend) the ground;
6.but streams (mist/vapor/dew/fog) came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. 
7.God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; man became a living being. 
8.God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden.  There He put the man He had formed. 
9.God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground; trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. 
In the middle of the garden were (both) the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil
10.A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into 4 headwaters. 
11.The name of the 1st is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah where there is gold. 
12.(The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there.)  
13.The name of the 2nd river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush
14.The name of the 3rd river is theTigris; it runs along the east side of Asshur.  The 4th river is the Euphrates. 
The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work and take care of it. 
16.God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden,
17.but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for when you eat of it you will surely die."
Genesis 2:19 KJVer -
19Out the the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field
and every foul of the air and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them.
Genesis 3:22-24 NIV
 - 22God said, "Man has now become like one of US, knowing good and evil. 
He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, eat and live forever
23.God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 
24.After He drove the man out, He placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim
and a flaming sword flashing back and froth to guard the way to the tree of life. 
Isaiah 61:1-3 KJVer
 - 1The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the meek.  He has sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim (inform/educate of one's legal rights/demand/shout/ declare/decree/enforce) liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2to proclaim (now/today is) the acceptable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God;
3to comfort all that mourn in Zion, to give to them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called trees of righteousness, the Lord's planting, that He might be glorified.
Isaiah 61:11 NIV - As the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden cause seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.
Job 1:9-10 KJV
 - 9Then Satan answered the Lord and said, "Does Job fear God for nothing (naught/no reason)? 
10Hast not thou made an hedge about him and about his house?"
Proverbs 3:13-14,18-20 NIV
 - 13Blessed is the man who finds Wisdom, the man who gains Understanding;
14for She is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold...
18She is a tree of life to those who embrace Her; those who lay hold of Her will be blessed. 
19By Wisdom the Lord laid the earth's foundations, by Understanding He set the heavens in place;
20by His Knowledge the deeps were divided and the clouds let drop the dew (to water the earth). 
Ezekiel 47:1.6-9,12 NIV - 1.The man brought me back to the entrance of the temple.
I saw water coming out from under the threshold of the temple toward the east (for the temple faced east)...
6.Then he led me back to the bank of the river. 
7.When I arrived there, I saw a great number of trees on each side of the river...
8.When it empties into the Sea, the water there becomes fresh... 
9.There will be large numbers of fish, because this water flows there and makes the salt water fresh;
so where the river flows everything will live...
12.Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river.  Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail.  Every month they will bear, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. 
Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing

                                                                             New Testament            

1st Peter 3:18-19 -18Because Messiah also once suffered concerning sin, the righteous One on behalf of the unjust, so that He could bring you to God when He did indeed (temporarily) die in the flesh, but then was made alive (resurrected) by the (Holy) Spirit;
19with Whom also, when (between His death & resurrection) He went & preached to those (human &/or demonic) spirits in prison,
20to those formerly disobedient (from the time of their rebellion/self-sufficiency until the death of Christ). (David H Stern's Jewish New Testament Commentary notes that all or some individuals would have been given the opportunity to be saved, whereas the fallen angels would have been stripped of all remaining legal vestiges of dominion/power/ authority.  This means that in the life of a modern day follower of Christ, any demonic rights are stolen/false/usurped/counterfeit/deceitful. 
Only an educated and violent Christian having the baptism of the Holy Spirit will have the wisdom and audacity to reclaim his/her inheritance in Messiah Jesus.)

Revelation 2:7 NIV - "He who as an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. 
To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God
Revelation 22:1-3 NIV - 1.The angel showed me the river of the water of life,
as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and the Lamb
2.down the middle of the great street of the city.  On each side of the river stood the (a) tree of life, bearing 12 crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month.  The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations (multitudes).  
3.No longer will there be any curse.
Revelation 22:14 TPNT
 - Blessed are those who are washing their robes, so that He will give them (access/the right) permission to use the tree of life; they could enter the city gates.


3 Baruch 12:1-8 Oxford Press -
As I was conversing with them, behold angels came bearing baskets full of flowers
2.They gave them to Michael.  I asked the angel, Lord, "Who are these, and what are the things
3.brought hither from beside them?"  He said to me, "These are angels (who) are over the
5righteous."  The archangel took the baskets and cast them into a vessel.  The angel
6said to me, "These flowers are the merits of the righteous."  I saw other angels bearing baskets which were (neither) empty nor full.  They began to lament, and did not venture to draw near,
7because they had not the prizes complete.  Michael cried and said, "Come hither, also, ye
8angels, bring what ye have brought."  Michael was exceedingly grieved, and the angel who was with me, because they did not fill the vessel.
3 Baruch 13:1-3 Oxford Press -
1.Then came in like manner other angels weeping and bewailing and saying with fear,
"Behold how we are overclouded, O Lord, for we were delivered to evil men, and we wish to depart from
2.them.  Michael said, "Ye cannot depart from them, in order that the enemy many not prevail to
3.the end." (Slavonic translation - You are ordered to labour for them till they repent and return.)
3 Baruch 15:1-4 Oxford Press - 1.In that very hour Michael descended, and the gate
was opened; he brought oil.  As for the angels which brought the baskets which were full, he filled them with oil, saying, "Take it away; reward our friends an hundredfold, and those who have laboriously wrought good works. 
3.For those who sowed virtuously, also reap virtuously."  He said also to those bringing half-empty (somewhat empty) baskets, "Come hither ye also; take away the reward according as ye brought, and brought the half-empty baskets. 
Go and bless our friends, and say to them that thus saith the  Lord, 'Ye are faithful over a few things, I will set you over many things; enter into the joy of the Lord.'"


Baker, Jerry - Talk to Your Plants - and other gardening know-how I learned from Grandma Putt - good - Chapter 2 - The Victorious Victory Gardener section Electroculture recommends creating ungrounded lightning rods (away from living animals, people and plants you do not want to electrocute).  Vine crops can be grown on metal fences/trellises. Fine copper wire can be placed "above" vegetables and secured at wood stakes at end of each row.  Another method is to place tin cans every 12-18" in a planted row.  Cans need to be topless and bottomless.  Place upright with one end 2" into soil.  This method is good for the collection of rain water.  A good resource for copper in gardening may be Phelps Dodge Industries, 300 park Ave, New York, N.Y. 10022.  Why all the fuss?  For beginners, electrical storms fertilize by charging the oxygen converting it into 78% nitrogen.  It should also affect the +/- ions.

I just stay in (speak out loud) the Word until the roots start growing. I don't know how long it will be before the roots develop. I never could tell how long it would be before those little pieces of plants my mother put in the jars of water would develop roots. It didn't look like anything was happening for months and months. Then all of a sudden, one day little roots would be floating around in the water.  It's the same way with the Word of God. You have to stay in the Word until the roots grow. Just let the water of God's Word continue to remain in your life. Then one day, you'll look up and see that you have a root and that you have the life of God in you. Now you're ready to plant it and receive the fruit of it."

Elizabeth Gilbert - novel prologue & chapter 1 re women botanists - http://www.amazon.com/The-Signature-All-Things-Novel/dp/0670024856#reader_0670024856 - http://www.elizabethgilbert.com/books/the-signature-of-all-things/ Author's college professor's "credo was: It takes a superior mind to appreciate a plant. By 'superior' I believe he meant 'uncommonly patient.' Plants do everything animals do, but slowly. They migrate, communicate, deceive, stalk their food and, with an ostentation of styles and perfumes to put the animal kingdom to shame, they make love. It’s just that catching them in flagrante delicto might require time-lapse photography. The class was evolutionary botany, and its wisdom makes a handy prerequisite for Elizabeth Gilbert’s expansive new novel, The Signature of All Things, about a botanist whose hunger for explanations."

http://www.christianforums.com/threads/kat-kerr-powerful-testimonies-of-heaven.7709517/page-12 - You go visit to the (Heavenly) Throne Room, and stay as long as you want to; you get saturated with the love of God until you can’t even walk or stand up. You just lay there.  You lay there engulfed in His love. Then you go with Jesus. Sometimes He’ll take you places in Heaven Himself just to bless you. He wants to be with you.  Everybody gets a secret garden. Whenever you want to be with Jesus, you have a key.  You go in and lock it. He comes and spends time with you. Isn’t that precious?
There’s a place the Father (God) does the same thing with you. He wants to have alone time with you too.

Heaven's Gardens

Brenner, Scott - Come Away to the Garden of the Lord -

Gruver, Henry - https://religiondocbox.com/Latter_Day_Saints/76841312-Cross-wise-visions-of-a-walker-by-henry-gruver.html#show_full_text (edited) CHAPTER  13 - A HEAVENLY EXPERIENCE By Henry Gruver October 22, 1988 - At a Prayer Meeting in Portland - I also smelled a heavenly fragrance. Along the golden pavement, in my peripheral vision,
I caught sight of the most beautiful colors...flowers!  Never before, on this earth, have I seen anything like them. Believe me, I have loved flowers since I was a little boy.  I would plant flowers all over the yard. I would go out in the desert, find wild flowers, and wait until I got seeds from them. Then I would come back and put them in Daddy's flower garden. When they would come up, Dad would say, What are those weeds doin in there? I would proudly say, I planted them, Daddy." He’d say, “But they are weeds.” “ But Daddy, They will grow pretty flowers,” I would excitedly explain.  “Leave them in there, please.”  “No.” he would say, “I don t want weeds in my flower gardens.” “ Oh, but Daddy,” I would go on, “They’ve got such pretty colors.”  Emphatically, he would repeat, “They're wild...weeds. I do not want them in my flower garden.”  You can understand now...I have loved flowers since I was a child. As an early teenager, growing up in Arizona, in the hot August time of the year, you would not see many flowers in the area where we lived. About all one ever saw was sagebrush and desert sand. The poor saguaro cactus would be shriveling up and their ribs sticking out.  The barrel cactus would look like a puny shrunken up sponge in that hot summer sun.  However, one Sunday, I felt I just had to find some flowers.  In the service that day, the presence of the Lord was so sweet.  I said, “Jesus, I want to find some flowers I have never seen before. Well, around the house we had one of those large magnifying glasses with a handle on it. We used to take it, then hold it up to the sunlight and burn paper with it. You know kids do crazy things like that sometimes. It was a miracle that we did not ever burn the house down. I took that magnifying glass and went out into a dry wash,
up alongside the bank where the sand had swept up.  I got down on my hands, knees and elbows.  I held that magnifying glass up and started looking at the sand. Guess what?   I found beautiful little flowers that were no bigger around than a pencil lead in the desert in August.  I was so happy.  I went home telling everybody about those flowers I had found with a magnifying glass.  My brothers?  Well, they were not enthralled at all. "Okay, okay, little brother, was about all the excitement they could muster. Enough of that;  let us return to those heavenly flowers. If you have love for something here on the earth, when you get into heaven you will be drawn to the perfection of its beauty, whatever that may be. That is why those flowers drew my attention.  It was wonderful.  I looked at them.  I did not have to express anything verbally.
just brought the thought to my mind.  You are so beautiful.  I have never seen such colors, such beautiful flowers, and, oh, your fragrance is as sweet as sweet can be.  It was just a thought; but as I beheld those flowers.  As, the thought and wonder of it all was registering in my mind, they broke forth into spontaneous clapping. The leaves on the stems began to vibrate all over on those flowers, the leaves were clapping their hands. Then the faces of those flowers turned away from me in another direction.  I heard the sweetest singing coming from them. They were expressing what I wanted to express while watching that person in the white raiment.  I will never forget the words they sang: ALL PRAISE, ALL GLORY, ALL HONOR and THANKSGIVING TO THE FATHER for CREATING US and COUNTING US WORTHY TO SERVE THE REDEEMED. As they sang that celestial song, their words turned into prismatic-like light. Here, we have a spectrum of  7 colors, as seen through a prism.   I believe in Heaven there could be as many as 888 colors in it’s spectrum.  I intently followed that light with my eyes and watched it moving as it went up towards a hill. The most beautiful glow was coming over this hill.  All of heaven, where I was, radiated; but that hill had an extra glow. When I saw it, I knew I was looking at the Throne of God.
I did not actually see the Throne, because it was on the other side. What I was seeing was the radiation from the Throne. The light that emanated from those flowers, as they sang, went to the Throne in a wave of slow motion. I was made to understand, that all of God s creation, all of life when it gives honor, glory, thanksgiving and praise back to the Father, for creating it, reciprocates the cycle of life. Creation is regenerated in that manner.  As the River of Life flows from beneath the Throne, the essence of all life flows from the Throne.  Each time you give thanks, you are literally being regenerated...recharged. Everything in heaven is rejuvenated, continually, in the presence of His glory. Therefore, you see the perfection of beauty...no degeneration.  In the word of God, it says we are being changed into His likeness from glory to glory, here a little, there a little, line upon line, precept upon precept. I know, to us, it seems like it is much too slow... not happening fast enough. I have asked the Lord for the reason why the process is so slow, and takes so long. This is what He says,” I would that not one would perish. I am long suffering with mankind. For they have chosen the ways of darkness and the ways of the world; but I have chosen to redeem whomsoever.  I will plead with them until I see the table is overturned and there will be too many lost if I allow it to go any further. Then I will have to step in. I will have to intervene and purge the land of the corruption, lest everyone is corrupted through it. “
Back in Heaven, I was filled to the brim with thanksgiving to the Father. Gratitude over-flowed from my heart for all the work He had done in that short time that I had been observing the person and his or her robe, portraying the righteousness of Christ in that linen. I was so full that; I felt I would overflow. Then the flowers burst forth into their song and light! That did it! I could not help it; I turned toward the Throne.  All of this began to pour out of me in a song.  I, too, joined in; but I sang the song of the redeemed.  That song came from the deep inner recesses of my being.  None of it came from between my ears or the top of my head.  My ears heard it; and it was as though they echoed back, "Yes! Yes! Yes! That s right! Keep it up! That is what He is worthy of yes!  My faculties that could understand were in total agreement with what was coming forth from me. It was in perfect harmony with what I had seen in the fine linen and in the flowers. As I stood, enraptured in this heavenly choir, on my left, I heard another one singing its anthem:  ALL PRAISE, ALL GLORY, ALL HONOR AND THANKSGIVING TO THE FATHER FOR CREATING US AND COUNTING US WORTHY TO SERVE THE REDEEMED!  I turned and looked to see what was happening.
The person that I had been following had stepped off the pavement of gold.  I could see 2 footprints of the person I was following, who was preparing to take the 3rd and 4th steps. The blades of grass that his or her feet had stepped on were singing the same song as the flowers. With every step, the song was louder, yet it was so sweet and so soft.  
Never once was anything overbearing in heaven.  It stayed in perfect unison and perfect harmony.
Yet, the grass had a different tone from the flowers. Their blending only made the harmony more beautiful.  
I walked, worked and prayed in the country of Wales for years.  I walked every city around the entire country.  
I truly came to love and appreciate their a cappella singing. They sing with up to 8-part harmony in their men s choirs, and chapel services. That ability came from the Holy Spirit in the Welsh revivals, starting in the 1700 s, and continuing up to the last major revival of 1904-5. They still have the song and the harmony in their hearts.  It is very real and precious.
One night I stood in the middle of the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church s Guild choir and sang with those Welshmen. However,
I could only start singing with them. Once they cut loose, I just stood in the middle of them and marveled, bawling my eyes out.  My, how it ministered to me.  I felt so honored standing with those men, as they sang and worshipped the Lord.
I had never heard such harmony until I went to Heaven.  That heavenly chorus was not exactly getting louder and louder; but it seemed much more significant as other voices join the chorale. The flowers were still singing and clapping their leaves, the grass had joined in with the sweetest tones coming from it. The same emanation of light from the song was going toward the Throne; and every blade of grass joined into the prismatic light in on going worship.  
Ripples of joy permeated me; but I also had to keep watching that person, so that I could follow his tracks.  Soon that one approached a tree, such as I have never seen in my whole life.  I did not actually count how much fruit was on it; but it also had numerous types of fruit that I had never seen the likes of before.  It had the most beautiful, healthy leaves, and was loaded with fruit from top to bottom.  It is hard to explain what happened, except to say it this way: the fruit protruded, as if to say, “Here, partake of me.” Then, the one I followed reached out to receive the fruit as it fell softly into his open extended hand. The tree freely gave of itself as all of Heaven does.  From that tree came another massive choir that filled heaven with music, in perfect harmony joining with the flowers and the grass: ALL PRAISE, GLORY, HONOR AND THANKSGIVING TO THE FATHER FOR CREATING AND COUNTING US WORTHY TO SERVE THE REDEEMED. The tree just swayed in worship to the Lord, as though it was a grass skirt on a Hawaiian dancer. It was swaying gently, yet every leaf was clapping with absolute beauty and grace.
A 10,000-voice choir here, on earth, could not even begin to sound like that celestial choir of heavenly nature.  
Repeatedly, its anthem echoed those words that wrapped themselves around my heart. ALL PRAISE, GLORY, HONOR and THANKSGIVING TO THE FATHER FOR CREATING AND COUNTING US WORTHY TO SERVE THE REDEEMED.
In the word of God it says, that, "Mountains and hills shall break forth into singing before you, and the trees of the field shall clap their hands." (Isaiah 55:12-b) All of creation was rejoicing in the Father.  As I stood, taking all of this in, I could not hold any more inside me;  I had to join the chorus and worship the Lord.  I worshipped until I felt my nose on the floor, back in the prayer meeting 5 1/2 hours had passed.  The expression of Heaven was on me for days.  I was left with such vivid awareness of Heaven s atmosphere, where everything in Heaven loves to serve and 'serves, to love.  
HOW CAN I BE SILENT ANY LONGER? - The aftermath to my "Heavenly Experience and answers to: "Why do you travel and travel and travel?  The creature (creation) itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. Not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. Romans 8:21-23
After those few hours spent in Heaven hours that seemed as a fleeting moment in time I realize more fully the power of our Lord’s words taken from what we all know as, The Lord s Prayer. Jesus teaches us to pray:
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
" Matthew 7:10
My heart can no longer rest, except for groaning to Him for all of creation, that it might be redeemed back to Him.
For He is the One Who is worthy to receive, all Glory, Honor, Praise and Thanksgiving, for my own redemption.  
It is He, Who has put a hope in the hearts of all creation for redemption. Yes, and it is He Who has counted me worthy to cross the globe, in His name.  It is He Who has led me all over the earth to claim that redemption back for those areas to which He leads me thus, being used to prepare the earth and mankind for His glorious return. Be silent? God forbid.
If I do not praise Him, the
stones themselves will cry out. (Luke 19:40).
Heaven taught me so much about creation. For you see, now, when I come to a little robin, I can talk to it and compliment it about its beauty and quick sense of the presence of a worm under the ground.  I can say to the little bunny, “My, you are made so soft and beautiful.”  I can give thanks to the Father for the flowers and trees, the grass and running brooks, the lizard that runs across the hot desert sands, the fish that swim in the water.   I can remind them of their Creator and Hislove for them, and tell them that it will not be this way forever, because, the earth is the Lord s, and the fullness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein. (Psalm 24:1.)   I can reassure that little creature that the redeeming grace of the Creator is sufficient to restore and buy back a sweet millennium of peace on this earth that was unwillingly made subject to vanity. In this process, our God has given us the ministry of reconciliation, as well as the word of reconciliation.
We have the knowledge that the Blood of Jesus was shed... for the remission of sins. (Matthew 26:28.)
We also have His word, that, Whosoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them... (John 20:23).
These things give us the commission, knowledge and tools we need to begin to cleanse and release the whole creation from its groans and travails. It is waiting for us the redeemed of the Lord to say it, and do it. That is why I go so that I can begin to buy creation back from the curse. I go to cleanse and wash it. I go to prepare it for the knowledge of the glory of the Lord that will fill the earth, as the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14.)
If you believe, please join me, in spirit and deed, to go and walk the land.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/boe/boe035.htm  Enoch 32:3-5 -
3. I came to the Garden of Righteousness (Eden), and from afar off trees more numerous than these trees and great '2'trees there, very great, beautiful, glorious, and magnificent, and the tree of knowledge, whose holy fruit they eat and know great wisdom.
4. That tree is in height like the fir, and its leaves are like (those of) the Carob tree. 
Its fruit is like the clusters of the vine, very beautiful; the fragrance of the tree penetrates afar.
5. Then I said: 'How beautiful is the tree, and how attractive is it's look!'
6. Then Raphael the holy angel, who was with me (Enoch), answered me: 'This is the tree of wisdom, of which thy father old (in years) and thy aged mother, who were before thee, have eaten; they learnt wisdom, their eyes were opened, they knew that they were naked, and they were driven out of the garden.'

Whether it was an actual vision or just a long dream, she does not really know. The only thing she knows and states, is that instead of the memory of the ‘dream’ dimming over the years, it had actually become more vivid...Many churches give this book out to grieving family members."

Heaven's Forest

#267) Kat Kerr - The Friendly Forest from Westgate Vineyard
http://www.christianforums.com/threads/kat-kerr-powerful-testimonies-of-heaven.7709517/page-12 - "There’s a place in Heaven (just because the kids are here) called the 'Friendly Forest'.  Guess what’s there? The Friendly Forest. Trees will dance with you. Flowers will dance with you.  The rocks have faces. They sing praises to God. The waterfalls have faces. They sing praises to God, and you have a whole concert going on in this forest. It’s beautiful.  I’ve seen people, how they get to this forest, and run down this meadow. There’s these 6-7 foot tall flowers.  They call them ‘flower-copters’. 
You grab this stem; it pulls you up and takes you across the sky of Heaven to where this friendly forest is.”

Nick Thieme – 7/11/2017 - https://slate.com/technology/2017/07/the-gruesome-truth-about-lab-grown-meat.html (edited) “All lab-grown meat so far requires a product called fetal bovine serum (
FBS) a somewhat common product, and one that we have to thank for many a medical innovation. FBS, as the name implies, is a byproduct made from the blood of cow fetuses. If a cow coming for slaughter happens to be pregnant, the cow is slaughtered and bled, and then the fetus is removed from its mother and brought into a blood collection room. The fetus, which remains alive during the following process to ensure blood quality, has a needle inserted into its heart. Its blood is then drained until the fetus dies, a death that usually takes about five minutes. This blood is then refined, and the resulting extract is FBS. Millions of fetuses are slaughtered this way. Although cows and bulls are kept separate to preclude the possibility of horseplay, most dairy cows, which are kept pregnant to ensure milk production, are eventually slaughtered too. Estimates put the percentage of slaughtered dairy cows found to be pregnant between 17 and 31%...
Why is fetal cow blood used to make fake meat in the first place? Let’s back up: Cultured meat grown in a lab is made from bovine cells that grow in a petri dish to ultimately produce a substance that is meat-like enough to market as a burger, because it’s made of the exact same cells. Cells, the basis of this substance, are notoriously suicidal. Usually, this is a good thing: In order for distinct body parts to develop and for those body parts to keep working, cells must be able to kill themselves if they realize they’re in the wrong place. That’s great in a body, but it means that when you put cells in a plastic dish (like a lab technician would do when growing fake meat), the cells are going to do their best to die. FBS stops their deaths because it contains growth factors, substances that can lie to cells and convince them they’re right where they should be...
FBS isn’t the only serum that can be used to culture meat cells, but it is the most widely used, even among other cow-blood products. Jan van der Valk, a scientist in the department of animals in science and society at Utrecht University, explained that cow fetuses are “organisms in development.” That means their blood contains more growth factors than older cows’ blood, making it better for cell culture and growing cultured meat...
FBS is also special because it is a universal growth medium. You can take almost any cell type, toss it into a petri dish with FBS, and the cells will grow. Other sera don’t have that universality. Instead, they’re cell-specific, so if you want to grow muscle tissue, you use muscle tissue serum, and if you want to grow brain tissue, you use brain tissue serum. So, while FBS could one day be used to make everything on a charcuterie board, other non-FBS alternatives would require multiple sera to make the pâté, liver, and sausage...
But, even though FBS is currently convenient, using it defeats the purpose of cultured meat in an extremely obvious way: You’re still slaughtering cows. Why not just eat the meat from the cow instead of going through a laborious process that turns cow cells into other cow cells? As it stands, cultured meat isn’t vegetarian, which means it can’t be marketed to vegetarians or vegans, many of whom oppose meat because of the cruelty of the meat industry or the environmental intensiveness of the meat industry. Cultured meat grown by way of FBS doesn’t, at all, address that problem—in fact, when it comes to the moral argument, slaughtering and extracting fetal blood from an unborn cow is possibly a more disturbing way to get meat.”

Carver, George Washington - Talking With Flowers  http://www.hbci.com/~wenonah/new/g-carver.htm Amazing - "Carver's mysticism sprang from his conviction that nature held the answers to all of life's questions, and that the only requirement for obtaining these answers was a receptive ear. Carver said, "I love to think of nature as unlimited broad-casting stations, through which God speaks to us every day, every hour, and every moment.  Carver's scientific discoveries originated from a rich inner life built upon a strong faith in divine powers.  His spirituality came not from participation in a particular church, but from a deeply personal relationship to his God.  "All my life," he said, "I have risen regularly at 4 o'clock and have gone into the woods and talked with God.  There He gives me my orders for the day. Alone there with things I love most, I gather specimens and study the great lessons Nature is so eager to teach us all. When people are still asleep, I hear God best and learn my plan"...
Carver also spoke with the subjects of his scientific inquiry. He was always seen to have a flower in his buttonhole, and he explained that he talked with the flowers and they revealed their secrets to him. "How do I talk to a little flower? Through it I talk to the Infinite. What is the Infinite? It is the silent, small force. It isn't the outer physical contact. No, it isn't that. The infinite is not confined in the visible world. It is not in the earthquake, the wind or the fire. It is that still small voice that calls up the fairies"...
A fellow professor and close friend, Glenn Clark, said that Carver's gift of speaking to flowers sprang from love, humility, and acceptance. His humility was maintained by avoiding what he called "the 'I' disease."  Carver experienced awe in his encounter with the natural world."

George Washington Carver: The Man Who Overcame, by Lawrence Elliott, 1966 - Chapter 7 - GW Carver "
'No individual has the right to come into the world and go out of it without leaving behind him distinct and legitimate reasons for having passed through it.  I pray that my work at Tuskegee will become my reason for living'...He told his students he was not there to contribute to their individual gain; nor was the school.  His goal, and the school’s goal, was to lead their people forward.  He told them that only service counts.  One of his earliest students, who went on to become a lawyer in Oklahoma, later said, 'He taught me that the human brain—my brain—held incalculable wealth, and all I had to do to free it was to want to.'  Carver taught his students that there is no richer plant food than the things that are thrown away every-day.  He sent them to the woods to bring back buckets of leaf mold to spread on their experimental garden plots. 
He taught them that legumes—such as cowpeas—had the unique capacity to absorb nitrogen from the air and feed it back to the soil.  To everyone, Carver passed on his 'magic formula', i.e., 'Start where you are'...
Carver developed a movable school which became a worldwide institution.  It started as a mule-drawn cart in 1906, and by 1918 had evolved into a huge automobile truck, a fully equipped traveling experiment station.  People from other counties and communities poured into Tuskegee for assistance in launching their own movable schools.  Carver always believed that the movable school had been his most important work.  It resulted in a nationwide revolution in soil conservation...
Boys would come to his room in 2’s and 3’s on Sunday afternoons.  Carver would talk to them about the relationship between science and the Scriptures.  He often acted out the roles of Biblical characters.  Once, when talking about the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah, he brought his story to a climax by touching off some chemicals in a great cloud of fumes and smoke.  The boys leaped to their feet and probably never forgot the story.  A boy asked him how he could know God.  Carver asked him what he was studying 'Electricity.'  'Have you ever seen electricity?'  George asked.  'No.'  Carver said, 'But when you make the proper contact, when you fulfill the laws of your trade, you can make a bulb light up, can’t you—because electricity is always there.  Isn’t that right?'  'Yes,' the boy agreed.  'Well,' Carver said, 'God is always there, too—just waiting for you to make contact.  He is all around you, in all the little things you look at, but don’t really see'...
Carver always stressed to his students that they should give to others, that they must learn to give what they had—their talents, their friendship, a cheering word.  It was to students in his Bible classes that Carver related most of the aphorisms
for which he is remembered, examples of which follow:
On getting things done:  'Back of my workshop, there is a little grove of trees, one has been cut down.  It makes a good seat.  I have made it a rule to go out and sit on it at 4 o’clock every morning, and ask the good Lord what I am to do that day.  Then I go ahead and do it.'  (How could I explain to a wife that I need to go out at 4 o’clock every morning to talk to the flowers?')
On Nature:  'I love to think of Nature as an unlimited broadcasting system through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune Him in.'
On opportunity:  'There is opportunity enough for anyone prepared to do what the world needs done'...
A lady who had sent for “the Tuskegee man” to see if he could help her ailing peach trees.  When she looked up and saw a poor and somber-looking Negro approaching, she asked him if he would like to earn 50 cents cutting her grass.  For some reason, Carver was silent.  He went to the mower and neatly cut the grass in both front and back yards.  Then he knocked on the door and said, 'Now, what seems to be the trouble with your peaches, Ma’am?'”  Regarding the dilemma of what to do with excess peanuts, Carver told his students "how he went to his beloved woodlands in the predawn darkness of a morning in October and cried out, 'Oh, Mr. Creator, Why did you make the Universe'...
'The Creator answered me. "You want to know too much for that little mind of yours."  He said, "Ask me something more your size."  'So I said, "Dear Mr. Creator, tell me what man was made for.’"  'Again He spoke to me. He said, "Little man, you are still asking for more than you can handle.  Cut down the extent of your request and improve the intent”...'Then I asked my last question. "Mr. Creator, why did You make the peanut?"  "That’s better!" the Lord said.  He gave me a handful of peanuts and went with me back to the laboratory.  Together, we got down to work'...Now his strength came from within.  He felt himself to be in God’s hands, the mortal instrument of a divine revelation.  [Note:  This story is somewhat reminiscent of Handel’s experience when he composed the oratorio, 'Messiah' at breakneck speed (and hardly eating) for 23 consecutive days]...
Carver continually put the needs of others ahead of his own. 
There have always been those who are militant in the fight for racial equality.  Carver did not perceive this to be his calling.  He once said, 'If I used my energy struggling to right every wrong done to me, I would have no energy left for my work.'

Colberg, Dr Don & Mary - The Word of God is the Foundation for Your Health - www.kcm.org - Click onto archives for 2/7/2008  and  2/8/2008 - Mary, wife of Dr Don Colberg, believes God impressed upon her that each of our lives is
a garden which mainly we ourselves are responsible to tend.  We till the soil, plant the seeds, pull the weeds, eat healthy, exercise, etc.  Adam and Eve were given the garden of Eden, where they failed God.  Let us, regarding our health, tend to our gardens, so we do not get premature diseases or premature death. Additionally let us weed out of our lives negligence and slothful habits which will backfire on us when the enemy attacks.  Rather let our spiritual roots grow deep and our spiritual fruit abound so that not only will we be able to defend against spiritual attacks, but also we will be able to go on the offensive to take back what the enemy attempts to steal or has stolen.  Amen, in Jesus name, most holy and wonderful.
A new-born Christian needs to be breast fed, hugged, burped, etc.  A newborn Christian needs lots of TLC.  Subsequently he needs to develop good spiritual habits like daily prayer, Bible reading, Christian fellowship.  Let us not forget that a newborn Christian needs the baptism in water and in the Holy Spirit.  Imperative for self defense and imperative for equipping to do His holy work and to produce much spiritual fruit.

http://www.kibbutz.org.il/eng/081101_kibbutz-eng.htm - "
The 1st kibbutz, Degania, was founded by a group of a dozen, young (immigrant Russian) pioneers in 1910, along the banks of the Sea of Galilee.  Since then, 273 kibbutzim (half of them prior to the establishment of the State of Israel) have spread across the face of the country and, to a certain extent, have defined its borders.  The majority of kibbutzim were founded by members of the Zionist Youth Movements, from Israel and around the world.  During the past 20 years, most of the new members are 2nd generation - sons and daughters who were born on kibbutz.  In addition, new immigrants and 'city-folk' have been absorbed into the kibbutz community...
There are currently 190 kibbutzim (72% of the total number of kibbutzim) that operate according to the model of the 'Renewed Kibbutz', about 65 kibbutzim (25%) continue to operate according to the traditional ideals of the 'Communal Kibbutz', & 9 kibbutzim (3%) have adopted the 'Integrated Method'. 
There are currently 273 kibbutzim in Israel (including 16 “religious kibbutzim”).  Most of them are located in peripheral areas, from the northernmost tip of the country down to southern Arava desert. The total number of registered inhabitants exceeds 106,000, with over 20,000 children under the age of 18.
http://www.isrealli.org/kibbutzim-going-green-and-making-green/ - 8/3/2010 - "
For decades the kibbutz has been synonymous with a communal farming lifestyle. Today however, agriculture on the kibbutz is often being replaced by other industries and socialism is being replaced by a more pragmatic form of egalitarianism...
Kibbutz Ketura, located in Israel’s Arava desert was not held back by its socialist mind set when German industrial giant Siemens came knocking. Siemens paid $15 million for a 40% stock in Arava Power, a company affiliated with the kibbutz that hopes to start generating solar power later this year. 'Tapping the sun’s energy is only natural given our geographical location and the general inclination of the kibbutz’s members for ecological pursuits,' says Yosef I. Abramowitz, the student activist turned green entrepreneur who founded Arava with other kibbutz members. Eliezer Tokman, the CEO of Siemens Israel added that the members of Kibbutz Ketura aren’t the only ones benefiting from this partnership. '[It] works well for both sides. The guys at Arava are the entrepreneurs. They initiate projects and deal with regulation, and we design, build, and maintain the projects.'”

 http://endtimemessage.info/SupernaturalBook-6.pdf - The ocotillo is a bush, but it doesn‘t have a central trunk; rather the branches all stem upward from a central point on the ground. Its branches are covered with leaves, and each leaf hides a one-inch long thorn. The ocotillo is a relative of the thorny plant in Israel that long ago some Roman soldier wove into a crown of thorns to put on the head of Jesus Christ the day he was crucified.

3.I came to the Garden of Righteousness (Eden), and from afar off trees more numerous than these trees and great '2' trees there, very great, beautiful, glorious, and magnificent, and the tree of knowledge, whose holy fruit they eat and know great wisdom.
4.That tree is in height like the fir, and its leaves are like (those of) the Carob tree:
and its fruit is like the clusters of the vine, very beautiful: and the fragrance of the tree penetrates afar.
5.Then I said: 'How beautiful is the tree, and how attractive is it's look!'
6.Then Raphael the holy angel, who was with me (Enoch), answered me and said: 'This is the tree of wisdom,
of which thy father
(Adam) old (in years) and thy aged mother (Eve), who were before thee, have eaten, and they learnt wisdom and their eyes were opened, and they knew that they were naked and they were driven out of the garden.'

Regarding Deliverance

COMMENTARY: Demons are nothing more than invasive WEEDS which need to be pulled by by the roots HEALING ROOT ISSUES  by the Master Gardiner, the Trinity (Father God/Jesus Christ/Holy Spirit).  We can cooperate with Him in this endeavor. Weeding takes lots of time, so be patient with both yourself and with God.  Additionally, after all that hard work is done, one needs to continually tend to the garden, like one would do with a business or family.  It always needs TLC + time.  We cannot do it alone, so continually fellowship with Father God and with others who love Him, too.  Savor His fragrance and beauty. Blessings.

Regarding Consequences

COMMENTARY: Believing is good.  It provides the seed.  However it is mandatory to act on our belief, to plant the seed. 
We, not God, are to plant the seed and tend the garden.  Don't continue to yell, "God, God."  He is waiting for us to act. 
We need to show God that our feet/money/heart is where our mouth is.  First we dig a hole, then we plant the seed,
then we cover it over, then we continually water and from time to time we fertilize/feed the seed.  First it grows hidden underground.  Then up it pops and inches its way upward to God.  We do not leave the seed of God (our salvation &/or the word of God) untouched in a bureau draw.  It will never produce roots, leaves, blossoms, fruit, offspring, that way.  Never.  Maybe for another person, but never for us, if our seed is left unattended.  Some of the ways we can show God and our-selves that we mean business is by daily devotions, weekly church, weekly prayer meetings, weekly fasting, weekly tithing, almsgiving, etc.  These can represent our watering, pruning, fertilizing, etc the seed.  However, it usually takes drastic spiritual measures to overcome crisis.  In Jesus we need to be as determined/ferocious/stubborn/violent as the devil is in his oppression.  Not becoming a militant martyr, but in believing/proclaiming/standing on the Word of God.  Why do a lot of trees topple over with big winds?  Like when the wolf huffed and puffed at the 3 pigs?  No good roots or foundation. 
Those spiritual roots will protect us when we continually dig deep into God.

Moyo, Andrew - Working the Works of God - www.messengerministry.com - Subtitle - The Keys to Supernatural Ministry Are in Your Hands - Chapter 6 Faith - Standing on God's Word  "Your faith will not produce your desired miracle until you release it by acting on God's Word...You cannot change your current circumstance until you get fed up with where you are and what is happening in your life - physically, spiritually, emotionally, financially, mentally and socially...How you respond to God establishes how He will respond to you."
Mark 5:30,34 KJV  Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that virtue (God's anointing power) had gone out of Him, turned Him about in the press and said, 'Who touched My clothes?...Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace and be whole of thy plague.'  Moyo continues, "Remember, faith is tangible. 
is (becomes) so tangible that God can see it when we put it into action."

Air Purification

https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/israel/2020/february/israeli-companies-develop-revolutionary-antiviral-face-masks-to-defend-against-deadly-coronavirus - 2/3/2020 - An Israeli company called Sonovia is creating a washable antiviral fabric that kills bacteria and viruses upon contact. Sonovia uses soundwaves to impregnate the surface of the fabric with metallic nanoparticles like zinc oxide and copper oxide. These particles have antiviral and antibacterial properties that destroy viruses and potentially save lives… the company’s textiles have proven effective against some strains of the flu virus and 6 types of bacteria including E. coli and Staph. The material can last for up to 100 washes at 167°F or 65 washes at 197°F…Sonovia wants to manufacture, their antiviral textiles in a variety of essential medic products like hospital bedding, gowns, and drapes…There was significantly lowered hospital-acquired infections
A Jerusalem-based company called Argaman is also months away from releasing its antiviral mask called Bio-Block. “The pores of the nanofiber pad are so small that bacteria cannot go through it (nor a droplet that contains a live virus) and our EPA-approved 100% CottonX fibers destroy the pathogens that come in contact with it,” founder and CEO Jeff Gabby said.  “The mask not only blocks the virus but kills the viruses going both to the wearer and away from the wearer in case the wearer is infected,” he explains.  
Like Sonovia, the CottonX fabric has proven effective against E. coli and Staph and can last up to 100 washes.  Customers can buy the Bio-Block masks in about 2 months at the company’s office in Jerusalem for $50. Argaman also plans on selling the masks and other products on Amazon.

The Washington Post reports this morning that "spider (Chlorophytum comosum) plants were lightning fast. The minute one was placed inside the container, the concentration of VOCs [8 gaseous compounds: Benzene, Toluene,  Ethylbenzene, p-Xylene, o-Xylene, Acetone, Dichloromethane (also called methylene chloride), Trichloromethane (also called chloroform) immediately began to go down."  The bromeliad (Guzmania lingulata) was the all-around champ, good at removing a variety of compounds from the air. However, 2 of the target compounds, dichloromethane and trichloromethane, proved more challenging for the plants to remove. At the press conference, Niri speculated that this could be due to the chlorine atoms in these compounds' structures.  All the other compounds in the study contain only carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.

Many of the monoculture crops bees feed on to produce honey are none other than genetically modified plants."

Even the pilots themselves have no real idea of why they are actually spraying. 
- Chemtrails are a sub-program of the US Navy's Radio Frequency Mission Planner (RFMP) program called the Variable Terrain Radio Parabolic Equation (VTRPE) to facilitate battle field imaging - a system for creating 3D battlefield imaging that the US military has been using in Iraq and Afghanistan
- Some of the chemtrail contents are biological in nature such as BCTP -
an anti-anthrax inoculation that was tested on US populations
- Clifford Carnicom has identified many of the very harmful biologicals coming out of chemtrails.
- Chemtrails are also linked to SCALAR weaponry controlled by the Russians which operate on 3 distinct levels:
...1. Energetics: destruction of aircraft; the Challenger; directed earthquakes, volcanic activity and hurricanes
...2. Bio-energetics: affecting human health and energy
...3. Psycho-energetics: mind control and behavior modification
- Scalar transmitters in Russia are controlled by their Federal Security Bureau (FSB)
- Scalar weaponry produce gravitational waves. There is nothing we can do to prevent this from happening. We are in a desperate time, and most of the people in the US are completely oblivious to what is happening, and are doing nothing because of political correctness.
- Israel has protected the US from Russian scalar (gravitational) attacks on many occasions.
- Mysterious sonic booms are caused by Russian interferometry affecting American air space (energy waves that take down airplanes/space ships/subs/power grids). It is the same system that causes man-made earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, and 'psycho-energetics.' They can take our cities down any time they want to. The only real deterrent is to take them out." (It is unclear whether Griffith meant 'taking out' the transmitters, or the deployment of 'Tesla domes' over US cities which he mentioned is the technology that was really created using money slated for an anti-missile defense shield.)  Scott Stevens is to be appreciated.

"When faced with pathogenic fungi, bees line their hives with more propolis (an antibiotic)...
Wild honey bees normally line their with propolis, a mixture of plant resins and wax that has antifungal and . Domesticated honey bees also use propolis, to fill in cracks in their hives. However, researchers found that, when faced with a fungal threat, bees bring in significantly more propolis: 45% more, on average. The bees also physically removed infected larvae that had been parasitized by the and were being used to create fungal spores. Researchers know propolis is an effective antifungal agent because they lined some hives with a propolis extract and found that the extract significantly reduced the rate of infection.vvAnd apparently bees can sometimes distinguish harmful fungi from harmless ones, since colonies did not bring in increased amounts of propolis when infected with harmless fungal species. Instead, the colonies relied on physically removing the spores... 
The paper, "Increased resin collection after parasite challenge: a case of self-medication in honey bees?," was co-authored by Dr. Marla Spivak of the University of Minnesota and is available online from PLoS ONE."

You may notice that there is a regular sequence, with some species habitually starting before others.  Among the earliest to rise are skylarks, song thrushes, robins and blackbirds…Wrens and warblers, typically appear later…
There is another chorus at dusk, like tree sparrows and blue tits, seem to prefer to sing at this time of day.

"Food habits  Wild lupine is the sole 'larval' food source of the Karner Blue butterflyAdult Karner blue butter-flies obtain nectar from several native and nonnative species. Karner blue butterflies have been reported feeding on the nectar of 41 different species in a single study in west-central Wisconsin. Broods differ significantly in the species used for nectaring, likely due to differences in their phenology. Several blackberries have been documented as food sources for the spring brood, while spotted beebalm, white sweetclover (Melilotus alba), and flowering spurge (Euphorbia corollata) are widely cited sources of nectar in the summer. Common cinquefoil (Potentilla simplex) is used
as a nectar species for both broods. Karner blue butterflies' preferred nectar species may include butterfly weed in New York and Michigan and lyrate rockcress (Arabis lyrata), lanceleaf tickseed (Coreopsis lanceolata), white sweetclover, and northern dewberry at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Differences in nectar species used between male and female Karner blue butterflies and across locations have been reported. Other often mentioned nectar sources include New Jersey tea (Ceanothus americanus), wild lupine, goldenrods (Solidago spp.), and spotted knapweed (Centaurea maculosa)."
Larvae food  "Wild blue lupine http://www.nhptv.org/wild/karnerbluelupine.asp is the only plant that Karner Blue larvae feed on." http://www.butterflyrecovery.org/recovery/karner_habitat_restoration_project/   http://www.fws.gov/midwest/Endangered/insects/kbb/lupine.html
Choice of flower color
http://www.bioone.org/doi/abs/10.1674/0003-0031%282000%29144%5B0001%3ANPSBTK%5D2.0.CO%3B2 - "In the Midwest and Northeast United States...Within observation areas of 2-m radius butterflies usually chose the nectar species with the greatest total number of flowers or flowering heads. This suggests that the Karner blue is opportunistic in selecting nectar plants. However, certain nectar species, including Arabis lyrata, Coreopsis lanceolata, Melilotus alba and Rubus flagellaris, were selected in a significant majority of cases when other nectar species were available nearby...(77.5%) adult Karner blues selected nectar plant species with yellow or white flowers over species with other-colored flowers....
At Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore to selections from Michigan and Wisconsin...the Karner blue most frequently chooses a suite of nectar plant species that includes A. lyrata, C. lanceolata, Euphorbia corollata, M. alba, Monarda punctata, Potentilla simplex, Rubus spp., Solidago speciosa and, perhaps, Asclepias tuberosa and Helianthus divaricatus. http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/7118.html
Life History of the Karner Blue butterfly http://www.butterflyrecovery.org/species_profiles/profiles.php?id=6  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karner_Blue - "The Karner blue is closely associated with wild lupines, prairie grasses, and nectar plants such as butterflyweed. This vegetation is characteristic of oak savannas. Oak savannas are dry habitats dominated by drought-resistant prairie plants and widely spaced oak trees.  Each year, this butterfly typically has 2 broods and, subsequently, 2 adult flight periods. The Karner blue hatches in April after overwintering as an egg. The caterpillar feeds exclusively on wild lupine (Lupinus perennis). In mid-May, the caterpillars develop into chrysalids from which they emerge as adult butterflies in early June. The adult butterflies feed on nectar from prairie plants through June and lay their eggs on wild lupine plants in July. These eggs mature into adult butterflies before the end of the summer and lay eggs that hatch the following April." 
(Therefore never cut back plants prematurely.  If need be cut off seed pods individually, but not the stem which is hollow. If desired, tie stems together with twine.  Preferably plant where lupine can spread from seed droppings.  Evaluate Karner migration path.  Wild lupine flourishes in sheltered wetlands.)

The queen termite, which lives for some 15 years, lays some 2,000 eggs each day. A colony can reportedly eat up to 400 grams (13 ounces) of wood daily, rendering buildings insecure in a mere few months...The species will eat anything containing cellulose, such as wood, paper or cardboard, & has also been known to devour copper & lead sheets, plaster, asphalt foam insulation boards, plastics & even underground power lines."  (We decree in Jesus' name, termines attempting to land in our zip codes are DEAD on arrrival.)

Toxic Fertilizers

Chicken manure - http://www.energyjustice.net/poultrylitter/toxics
Chicken manure - https://www.britannica.com/science/histoplasmosis - "
, infection with the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum, occurring in humans and other animals. The disease is contracted by the inhalation of dust containing spores of the fungus. H. capsulatum prefers moist, shady conditions and is found in woods, caves, cellars, silos, and old chicken houses. The last seem to be especially important because chickens often are infected and pass enormous numbers of organisms in their droppings. The use of chicken manure in gardens may lead to histoplasmosis in humans. Dogs, rats, mice, bats, pigeons, skunks, and probably many other animals become infected and may help to spread the disease. The chief site of infection is the lungs, though the fungus can spread through the bloodstream to other organs, such as the liver, and bone marrow...patients with widespread disease can be treated with the antibiotic amphotericin B.."
Chicken manure - https://www.foodsafetynews.com/2011/06/salmonella-risk-in-backyard-chicken-eggs/ -
Appropriately composting the (chicken) manure should kill any potentially harmful bacteria. A compost temperature gauge can be purchased to see if the compost is between 130-150 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the temperature required to kill harmful bacteria (and hopefully any parasites). However, if a temperature gauge isn’t handy, then letting the compost cure for 45-60 days will do the trick."

Nick Thieme – 7/11/2017 - https://slate.com/technology/2017/07/the-gruesome-truth-about-lab-grown-meat.html (edited) “All lab-grown meat so far requires a product called fetal bovine serum (FBS) a somewhat common product, and one that we have to thank for many a medical innovation. FBS, as the name implies, is a byproduct made from the blood of cow fetuses. If a cow coming for slaughter happens to be pregnant, the cow is slaughtered and bled, and then the fetus is removed from its mother and brought into a blood collection room. The fetus, which remains alive during the following process to ensure blood quality, has a needle inserted into its heart. Its blood is then drained until the fetus dies, a death that usually takes about five minutes. This blood is then refined, and the resulting extract is FBS. Millions of fetuses are slaughtered this way. Although cows and bulls are kept separate to preclude the possibility of horseplay, most dairy cows, which are kept pregnant to ensure milk production, are eventually slaughtered too. Estimates put the percentage of slaughtered dairy cows found to be pregnant between 17-31%.

Toxic to insects - Plants fight back - Clover native to the Mediterranean region that contains the chemical formononetin can cause sterility, stillbirths, and inability to birth in sheep.  300+ plants contain estrogenic substances. "Hormone mimics lurk in parsley, sage, and garlic; in wheat, oats, rye, barley, rice and soybeans; in potatoes, carrots, peas, beans, and alfalfa sprouts; in apples, cherries, plums, and pomegranates; and even in coffee and bourbon whiskey. 
Like DES and DDT these plant compounds can fool the estrogen receptor...

Healthy Soil

Add compost and charcoal (fireplace ash), mulch and shade to protect against drought. -

Agrichar - Terra Preta "is characterized by the presence of low-temperature charcoal in high concentrations; of high quantities of pottery sherds; of organic matter such as plant residues, fish and animal bones and other material; and of nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, zinc, and manganese. This combination increases the soils ability to retain nutrients for plants while also reducing Nitrous Oxide emissions. Terra Preta can store twice as much carbon than regular soil. This soil has spawned a new technology called Agrichar."

http://ag.arizona.edu/pubs/garden/mg/soils/depth.html - Arizona - Soil Depth -
"Bacteria that live in nodules on the roots of legumes are able to fix nitrogen from the air into a form available to plants. Beans, peas, and Mesquite and Acacia trees, and alfalfa, are examples of legume plants."

Berry, Wendell - Full Show: Wendell Berry, Poet & Prophet - 10/4/2013 - Moyers & Company interview @ http://billmoyers.com/series/moyers-and-company/

Clover is recommended as a lawn plant to provide nitrogen to the soil, as it is a legume, the same as soybeans, peas, peanuts.  If Americans are not interested, perhaps 3rd world countries might, as some soils are nitrogen deficient, where there is no or little crop rotation or frequent flooding with washing off of top soil.

"C/N Ratio: The ratio of carbon to nitrogen. Microbes thrive in the compost pile when their food source provides a C:N ratio between 15:1 and 30:1 - meaning that for every 15-30 parts of carbon (brown materials), 1 part of nitrogen (green materials) must be added to the pile." http://www.composting101.com/words-to-know.html

http://swfl.naturalawakeningsmag.com/SWFL/March-2011/Do-it-Yourself-Compost/ - "The Correct Ratio - Make 2 even piles of brown (carbon) vegetation, such as dead leaves and grass, hay, twigs and sawdust; and 1 even pile of green (nitrogen) vegetation, such as living plant material, leaves, fresh-cut grass and vegetables. - 1 Green, 2 Brown - Evenly scoop one pile of green and two of brown, and then repeat the cycle, all the while adding water."

For the first 51 years of his life, Pat Godin was considered one of the best soil, fertilizer, plant and garden specialists in North America. All the big retail chains, from California to Ontario, would come to him for the perfect blend of soil and fertilizer that would fit their area, and make things grow, grow, grow. One day, Godin decided that he was no longer happy doing it for others. He left his company, and started Nuway Brands, a designer gardening service, which is a quick-response answer for the same retail chains, from Home Depot to Home Hardware, who call on him for his customized soils & fertilizers.  His blends are as refined as coffee blends made by a great roaster. They take into account the nature of the soil already present in the area, its deficiencies, & the particular needs of the plant, flower, lawn or vegetable being considered. Godin’s magic touch can change a banal backyard, or a tired-looking garden, into a spectacular patch of vegetation bursting with life. This 'late bloomer' is a credit to entrepreneurship. Plus his love of nature and greenery is incredibly infectious."

Volcanic rock
and ash (carbon soot)   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeolite#Agriculture - "In agriculture, clinoptilolite (a naturally occurring zeolite) is used as a soil treatment.  It provides a source of slowly released potassium. If previously loaded with ammonium, the zeolite can serve a similar function in the slow release of nitrogen. Zeolites can also act as water moderators, in which they will adsorb up to 55% of their weight in water and slowly release it under plant demand. This property can prevent root rot and moderate drought cycles.  Some of the more common mineral zeolites are analcime, chabazite, clinoptilolite, heulandite, natrolite, phillipsite, and stilbite.  An example mineral formula is: Na2Al2Si3O10-2H2O, the formula for natrolite.  Natural zeolites form where volcanic rocks and (carbon) ash layers react with alkaline groundwater. Zeolites also crystallize in post-depositional environments over periods ranging from thousands to millions of years in shallow marine basins. Naturally occurring zeolites are rarely pure and are contaminated to varying degrees by other minerals, metals, quartz, or other zeolites. For this reason, naturally occurring zeolites are excluded from many important commercial applications where uniformity and purity are essential Zeolites are the aluminosilicate members of the family of microporous solids known as "molecular sieves." The term molecular sieve refers to a particular property of these materials, i.e., the ability to selectively sort molecules based primarily on a size exclusion process."

It contains 10 billion colonies of selected natural bacteria per gram—bacteria that, in the absence of heat and light, have a voracious appetite and rapidly digest waste, according to George Aucoin, sales administrator with Bercan Environmental Resources Inc.  'Once one gram of bacteria connects with water, that multiplies into 10 billion bacteria, and that unites with the bacteria that’s in the sludge or the human waste and it just keeps increasing. What it does is it sucks the water out of the material and what’s left is pure enough to be bagged and sold as fertilizer. And after 2 or 3 days there’s no smell.
That’s how it works,' says Aucoin, a resident of Victoria, British Columbia.  Bercan CEO Allan Mc Innes of Lantzville, B.C. (Canada) owns the rights to the formula...

Citronella grass - http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/citronella-insect-repellent/?  6/2016 - "There are 2 other plants that also go by the common name citronella which belong to the lemongrass family.  These perennial clumping grasses Cymbopogon nardus and Cymbopogon winterianus grow to an astonishing size of 6' tall and 6' wide (2 m).  The base stems are magenta-colored while the leaves are long and pointy.  Citronella grass is a favorite to plant in home gardens because it effectively wards off insects such as the destructive whitefly.  Thus, it faciliates growing some vegetables without commercial pesticides...
Citronella grass in plant form, while effective for pest control when grown in home gardens, isn’t too helpful for repelling mosquitoes when placed on your porch or patio because the amount of insect repelling oils given off by the live plant is very small."

corn gluten - http://www.extension.umn.edu/yardandgarden/ygbriefs/h531cornglutenmeal.html -
"Corn gluten meal is effective
only against seeds, not existing plants...
Corn gluten meal (CGM) is a natural substitute for synthetic pre-emergence herbicides. Pre-emergence herbicides attack seeds while they're still in the ground, before the seedlings emerge from the soil. CGM is a by-product of commercial corn milling that contains the protein fraction of the corn. Its use poses no health risk to people or animals. In fact, because it is 60% protein, corn gluten meal is used as feed for cattle, poultry, fish, and dogs. In addition to the 60% protein, corn gluten meal is 10% nitrogen, by weight....Pelletized form is easier to use...Apply corn gluten meal first in late April/early May, then a 2nd time around mid-August. Spread the product evenly, at a rate of 20 pounds per 1,000 square feet of lawn. Water it lightly into the soil in order to activate it. The CGM should remain effective for 5-6 weeks each time you apply it. "

Neem: Organic Gardeners Best Friend - 4/11/2017 - "The species name is Azadirachta indica...Traditional Ayurvedic uses of neem [leaves] include the treatment of acne, fever, leprosy, malaria, ophthalmia and tuberculosis (TB). Various folk remedies for neem include use as an anthelmintic, antifeedant, antiseptic, diuretic, emmenagogue, contraceptive, febrifuge, parasiticide, pediculocide and insecticide. It has been used in traditional medicine for the treatment of tetanus, urticaria, eczema, scrofula and erysipelas. Traditional routes of administration of neem extracts included oral, vaginal and topical use. Neem oil has an extensive history of human use in India and surrounding regions for a variety of therapeutic purposes. Puri (1999) has given an account of traditional uses and therapeutic indications and pharmacological studies of this oil, in his book on neem (1)...
The active ingredient in neem, azadirachtin, consists of compounds called liminoids, which act somewhat like steroids. When insects eat neem-coated foliage, the liminoids disrupt normal hormone production and processing, causing a loss of appetite in some insects and interfering with normal reproduction, maturation, and molting patterns in others (2)...

Pests neem repels: mealy bug, beet armyworm, aphids, cabbage worm, thrips, whiteflies, mites, fungus gnats, beetlesm moth larvae, mushroom flies, leafminers, caterpillars, locusts, nematodes, Japanese beetle...Neem will do no harm to precious earthworms, beneficial microbes living in the soil, ladybugs, bees or birds. Note: bees cannot be sprayed directly...Diseases like Lyme: While neem won’t kill ticks (at least not super quickly), it does interfere with their breeding cycles (7). Hence, it is good to spray around a property to keep ticks at bay, although for camping, use something else like (wild) yarrow...Neem oil is often used in natural shampoos to control fleas and other pests on pets...Neem products are inexplicably banned in the United Kingdom. In Canada, as of this writing, there are still no registered neem oil pest control products. Also, in Canada, you could only use such a product if you were licensed and registered, thereby making them unavailable to average gardeners and small farms (8)...Ingestion/consumption of concentrated neem is dangerous, especially for pregnant women and children, and also for pregnant pets...by John Moody https://www.facebook.com/farmandfoodfreedom/

Leej, Arthur - http://www.arthurleej.com/Violet.pdf  - ELECTRIC PLANTS - or electric farming - “The physiology of plants (may) give...explanation of the functions which most of their organs have to perform and good reasons for their existence and their varying forms. This is, however, (may) not the case with the needle-like shape of the leaves in fir trees, and the beard on the ears of most cereals. Since nothing exists without purpose in all the infinite number of objects in nature; then the needle-shaped leaves and the beard must have their determined ends. In fact, they are very well fitted to be the means through which the electricity goes from the atmosphere into the earth, or vice versa; that is to say, they act in the same fashion as metallic points.  To pretend that they really serve as a means of transmitting electricity because their form shows them capable of it would be to go too far. The presence of electricity in the air around them shows that they are, in fact, in a position to perform this function of transmission.' Selim Lenstrom.
The story of electricity and life may have begun some 4 billion years ago with lightning strikes. The electrical current formed the molecules of life and linked them into chains. Lightning has a major effect on the plant world by forming nitrogen compounds, which plants use to generate proteins. Thunderstorms do more than wet the ground;
they also fertilize.
In 1890,
Scientific American announced that an electric plant had been discovered in South Africa that gave you a shock when you touched it. Nobody could find the mysterious electric plant, so it was assumed that the story was a hoax. The story may have come from someone tasting a leaf of Spilanthes africana. The anesthetic in the leaf gives the person a distinct feeling of a shock on the tongue.  The first electrification of growing plants began in Edinburgh, Scotland, when Mr. Maimbray electrified 2 myrtle trees in 1746.  The trees began to leaf and bloom sooner than others nearby. Abbe Jean Nollet heard about the experiment and planted seeds in 2 garden pots. He electrified 1 pot for 2 weeks several hours a day.  The electrified seeds grew sooner than the other seeds.
In 1747, Jean Nollet was tutoring the Dauphin. A German professor told Nollet that if water in a thin glass tube is electrified, it won’t drip, but would run in a stream.
He electrified mustard seeds
22 with charged water, and the sprouts grew 3 centimeters taller than non-electrified ones.
Abbe Pierre Berthelon was a professor of experimental physics at French and Spanish universities. He had a gardener stand on a slab of insulating material and sprinkle the vegetables from an electrified water can. He tried to collect atmospheric electricity with an antenna and pass it into plants growing in a field. He believed that the best fertilizer for plants was electricity from the sky and in 1783 wrote
De l’lectricité des Végétaux.
In 1770, Professor Francesco Gardini stretched a number of wires above a monastery garden in Turin, Italy. Many of he plants began to wither and die. When the wires were taken down, the garden revived.  He theorized that the plants had been deprived of electricity or perhaps they had received an overdose. He wanted to attach wires to the newly invented hot air balloons to conduct electricity from great heights.
L. Grandeau experimented in France by putting tobacco plants in a cage to shield them from electricity. Plants outside the cage grew 1.87 meters tall and those under the enclosed wire cage grew 1.42 meters. There were 89 flowers on the outside plants and only 45 flowers on the shielded plants. He believed that electricity increased the height and strength of the plants.
William Ross tested the power of electricity by planting cucumbers in a mixture of manganese oxide, salt and clean sand. When he applied electric current to the beds, the seeds sprouted well ahead of those exposed to a non-electrified mixture.
John Freke was a surgeon at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital and a curator of its museum.
In 1746 he announced that the movements of the leaves of the sensitive plants were due to electricity. He put a potted plant on a cake of wax and attached it to a static machine. When electrified, the leaves stood out. He believed that this proved electricity was the agent behind the moving leaves.
Selim Lemstrom took 4 trips to northern Norway and Spitzbergen.  He noticed the tremendously rich plant development of trees, flowers and even cultivated crop plants such as rye, oats and barley.  Most botanists felt that the rich summer vegetation of the northern
23 climates was due to light and heat. But while days are long, the sun’s light is oblique, and its illuminating and heating power is greatly lessened.  Lemstrom noticed that the northern tree rings showed strong 11-year sunspot cycles. The harvest cycle of the north showed a strong variation with the sunspot cycle. The greater the number of sunspots caused more auroras and a more abundant harvest of seeds, roots and grass.
He felt that this was due to the greater circulation of electricity in the atmosphere.  Lemstrom noted that northern trees had needle-shaped leaves, and cereals had bearded points. He believed these points would serve as transmitters of electricity.
In order to prove his theory, he sowed barley, wheat and rye grains in cardboard boxers. The boxes attached to a static generator yielded 40% more than the other boxes.  He tried dividing a field into plots & using wires above the plants attached to a generator. This increased the rye yield by 19% and the barley by 40%. He had great difficulty doing this, because he couldn’t use the static machines in damp or rainy conditions.  He found that added electricity didn’t help plants in poor soils.  Other scientists repeated the experiments, but didn’t find any difference in the yields.  They felt it would take a significant difference to repay the extra work & expense involved.  Patrick Synge traveled in Africa and noted that the plants of the 'Mountains of the Moon' or the Ruwenzori of Uganda had unusual vegetation. There were heathers as large as trees and impatiens with flowers 2 inches across. He found lobelias on Mount Elgon growing 30 feet tall, but when he brought them to England, they didn’t survive.  He believed that light and electric currents accounted for the luxurious growth.
There was a great deal of interest in electric crop growing in England, and many experiments were performed. Usually a wire net was placed at varying distances above the field, fastened with insulated supports. A critical review of 20 years of experiments showed no increased growth caused by electricity.
Fredrik Elfving did another type of experiment. Various plants were grown in wet soil, and an electric current was passed through the
24 plant roots at right angles.  The roots bent to follow the lines of current flow. 
William Ross got a U.S. patent on this in 1844. He buried plates of zinc or copper about 200 feet apart. The plants were connected above ground with wires, thus forming a battery. He claimed to grow very large potatoes in his electrified fields.  It is known that plant roots show galvanotrophy. A small current will cause the roots of beans to grow towards the negative pole. When roots have a high concentration of salt they will grow towards the anodeAmoebas and most protozoa drift towards the negative cathode
In 1934, William Osterhous recorded the electrical variation across the membrane of the giant cell of
Nitella flexilis with an electrode placed in the cell. The inside of the cell had a negative charge with respect to the outside. When the plant was stimulated, sodium ions flowed into the cell and potassium flowed out. The process reversed itself, as the plant resumed normal function.
Dr. Alexander Sinyukhin cut branches from a series of tomato plants. He took electrical measurements around the wound. A negative current or a 'current of injury' flowed from wound for several days. During the second week, a callus formed and a new branch began to grow with a positive polarity. When Sinyukhin applied 2-3 microamperes of current, branches regenerated up to 3 times faster.
Jagadis Bose found that radio waves produce variation in the growth of plants. Feeble waves accelerated the rate of growth, but strong radio waves retarded plants. The effect persisted for a long time after the stimulation ceased.
Oskar Korschelt was a German professor of agriculture who believed that electricity and cosmic forces stimulated healing of plants and people. He wrote: 'It is not only the life force, but also the character of the healer that is shared with the sick person. Conversely, the character of the patient flows into the healer.'
Fritz Hildebrand was a Bavarian civil engineer who believed that he discovered growth waves with a length of 10-30 centimeters.  When he exposed seeds to waves for only 15 seconds, larger plants with greater yields were produced. This is far higher than the violet
25 ray frequency. He used a complicated apparatus, but Surgeon General Alexander Heermann produced them with a simple circuit.
Bindo Riccioni devised a simple apparatus for treating large numbers of seeds electrically. He treated up to 5 tons of seeds a day by allowing them to flow between parallel capacitors hooked up to a resonating circuit. He reported harvest yields up to 37% above average. A seed processing plant was built in the Soviet Union using this technology.
Corn yields went up by 15–0% and oat and barley yields increased from 10–5%.
In 1922, Alberto Pirovano published
La Mutazione Elettrica. He invented the process of 'ionolozation' in which pollen was subjected to high voltage electricity of 500–00 hertz. When used to fertilize flowers, it produced a wide variety of changes in plants. Plants were giants or dwarfs, and their seeds and fruit were changed. Flowers were markedly altered. He produced several new varieties of tomatoes, which became popular with gardeners. It is possible that the violet ray might be used to produce the same changes.
In 1964, Charles R. Keller received patent 3,120,722 for the treatment of sick trees.
He used a current of 800 hertz and 6,500 volts placed about three-quarters out on the main branches. He claimed the electrical stimulus revives the immune system of the tree and overcomes the infection.  He would attach wires to the main branches and turn on the equipment. The higher the voltage, the shorter the treatment time.  Sometimes he would treat the roots by pounding in metal stakes and attaching the wires to the tree branches. He treated avocado trees for canker and orange trees for scale and dieback.
The terminal parts of the branches were apparently dead, and the whole tree had few or
no new sprouts in the spring. The following spring, the trees would show new growth and the apparently dead limbs would return to life.  Often they would bear a heavy crop of fruit.
In 1968, Dr. H. Len Cox read an article in the magazine
Aviation Week and Space Technology
. Satellite photos showed which field attacked by pests had a different 'electromagnetic signature' from good fields. He decided to try changing the electromagnetic signature by adding particles of magnetite to the soil. He brought back
a truckload
26 of ore from Wyoming and charged the particles with a strong magnet. 
His garden didn’t look much different until harvest. The radishes, carrots and turnips were large. He began selling 10-pound containers of magnetite to gardeners who reported that irises doubled the number of blossoms on a single stem and that their gardens were much more fruitful. It didn’t seem to work in (plastic) flowerpots; the magnetite had to go into the earth.  There is an ancient Pueblo prayer chant, expressing the effect of nature’s electricity:
My corn is green with red tassels, I am praying to the (author of) lightning to ripen my corn.
I am praying to the (author of) thunder, which carries the lightning Corn is sweet where lightning has fallen. I pray to (the author of) the colored clouds."
Electricity & Mental Conditions - "Arthur E. Baines was a submarine cable engineer...used the galvanometer to study plants and found that they have a negative and positive end. He believed that the waxy bloom on peaches and apples was part of the dielectric insulation of the plant to alter the current flow. He felt that cholesterol was part of the dielectric system of the body.  He found that wounds would heal rapidly when coated with wax to alter their electrical properties."

Thunder storms - "Nature's thunderstorm. Thunderstorm's product = highly activated oxygen which destroys pollution and puts negative ions in the air that also destroy pollution and also promote better health. This super activated oxygen produced by thunderstorms is the most devastating to pollution and it is also the source of that aroma that you smell after a thunderstorm that people associate with super fresh air."

Plant Communication

http://www.anti-agingfirewalls.com/2014/07/15/plant-communications/ Tree example:
Giraffes love gobbling Acacia leaves, and can consume 140 pounds of leaves a day.
They can run 35 miles/hour and find the leaves very nourishing.
The tees can’t run away or hide from giraffes but have developed these defenses:
A system of tough 4" long straight and curved thorns,
The ants mentioned in the previous item 'A 2nd line of defense is not readily apparent until contact is made with a protected plant. Ants: biting, stinging, swarming, and ready to give their lives in defense of the colony and turn a mouthful of foliage into a painful experience. Many plants draw ants into their canopies with the lure of nectar found in nectaries on the leaves. But certain species of acacia such as the whistling thorn (Acacia drepanolobium) go one step further by supplying room as well as board in the form of swollen thorn bases. The ants hollow out the thorns while green and become nest sites and living quarters: domatia. The colony readily defends its home tree against any and all intruders be they mammal, insect or plant. Pheromone scent trails rally the troops to battle and may serve as a warning to nearby browsers that these leafy morsels are served with a bite.'
A 3rd line of defense, this one being again chemical involving tannins. 'Tannins inhibit digestion by interfering with protein and digestive enzymes and binding to consumed plant proteins making them more difficult to digest. Herbivores have various strategies for dealing with tannins, some more successful than others.'
The plant may produce other toxic substances- 'Under certain conditions, acacias build up levels of a toxin, known as Prussic acid, hydrocyanic acid or hydrogen cyanide (HCN). Ruminant animals are more susceptible due to certain enzymes found in their digestive tract. This potent poison interferes with oxygen use at the cellular level causing death by asphyxiation.'
A 5th line of defense is warning other trees through release of ethelene gas. 'Upon tearing away at the protein-rich foliage, the torn leaf surfaces emit the gaseous hormone ethylene, alerting other plants within 50 yards to increase tannin production in order to thwart the foraging mega-herbivore. Sensing the menu change the giraffe moves upwind dining on plants that have failed to catch the drift. More than the adjoining vegetation may detect this call to arms. Passing carnivores pick up the invitation, resulting in a hasty retreat or, at the very least, a change of plans for the browser.'
Finally, a 6th level of defense is internal signaling in the acacia plant which fosters rapid regrowth. 'Often, branches that have been pruned and stripped of leaves grow back more vigorously than unbrowsed branches. Tipped branches send out many side shoots, each with new leaves that seasonally provide even more nutritious browsing than before, while increased leaf surface allows increased energy production. Repeatedly done this would be analogous to a gardener shearing a hedge.  This mutuality outcome works out for both parties, over the short term anyways.
Browsed stems are more likely than unbrowsed ones to be dead the next year and repeated heavy tissue loss and replacement could ultimately deplete the trees available resources unless some compensatory source of nutrients becomes available.'  Giraffes have developed counter-measures to some of these defenses. So they and arcacias live in a dynamic ecological balance." http://www.wbur.org/onpoint/2017/03/08/giraffe-extinction-endanger 

Plant Intelligence

Can plants talk? - http://theweek.com/article/index/229539/health-amp-science - 6/29/2012
"Unsettling news for vegetarians: Plants may communicate with one another by making sounds at frequencies that humans can’t hear. British and Australian researchers have discovered that the roots of corn saplings emit a constant clicking sound. When a similar sound was played in a lab, they found that corn roots grew toward the noise, much the way plants are known to grow toward light. Sweet fennel may telegraph its presence to other plants too. The plant is known to release chemicals that slow the growth of other nearby plants. When researchers put fennel in a plastic box that blocked those chemicals, they found that nearby chile pepper plants grew even faster than they would outside the presence of fennel. The researchers theorize that the chile plants 'knew' fennel was nearby because of sound signals not blocked by the box, and grew more quickly to protect themselves in anticipation of the usual chemical attack from the fennel. Study author Monica Gagliano tells the Daily Mail (U.K.) that while her research doesn’t prove that plants are conscious, it 'opens up a new debate on the perception and action of people toward plants.' Plants, she says, are not insensate objects, and should be treated as 'living beings in their own right.'”

Carlson, Dan - Secrets of the Soil by Peter Tompkins & Christopher Bird - http://www.amazon.com/Secrets-Soil-Solutions-Restoring-Planet/dp/1890693243#reader_1890693243
http://www.relfe.com/sonic_bloom.html#Sonichistory -  "S
ome motive force, he soon realized, was needed to awaken the stomata to action. Puzzling as to what this might be, Carlson stumbled on a record called Growing Plants Successfully in the Home, devised by George Milstein, a retired dental surgeon who had won prizes for growing colorful plants. Milstein's innovative idea had been to get a recording company, Pip Records, to amalgamate into a popular tune the pure sound frequencies broadcast by University of Ottawa researchers to increase wheat yields, which he had read about in
The Secret Life of Plants
Picking up where Milstein left off, Carlson focused on finding frequencies that would motivate the stomata to open and imbibe. Though he did not at first suspect a tie with the sound that caused the birds to flock to McClurg's orange grove, he managed through a stroke of spiritual insight to hit upon a combination of frequencies and harmonics exactly accordant with the pre-dawn bird concerts that continue past sun-up into morning.
To help create a new cassette tape of popular music into which his non-musical sonics could be embedded for inclusion in a Sonic Bloom home kit for use in small backyard gardens and greenhouses and on indoor plants, Carlson enlisted the technical expertise of a Minneapolis music teacher, Michael Holtz. Within seconds of hearing Carlson's 'cricket chirping' oscillating out of a speaker, Holtz realised its pitch was consonant with the early-morning concert of birds outside his bedroom window.
The first cassette, using Hindu melodies induced stomata to imbibe more than 7 times the amount of foliar-fed nutrients, and even absorb invisible water vapour in the atmosphere that exists, unseen and unfelt, in the driest of climatic conditions. But this sound proved irritating to most American horticulturalists and farmers.
Looking for western music in the range of Carlson's highest frequencies, the ones which in Hindu experiments had shown the best bumper crops of corn, Holtz culled several baroque selections from The Dictionary of Musical Themes, settling on the first movement of Vivaldi's The Seasons, appropriately called Spring. 'Listening to it time and again',
said Holz, 'I realized that Vivaldi, in his day, must have known all about birdsong, which he tried to imitate in his long violin passages.'
Holtz also realized that the violin music dominant in Spring reflected Johann Bach's violin sonatas broadcast by the Ottawa University researchers to a wheat field, which had obtained remarkable crops 66% greater than average, with larger and heavier seeds. Accordingly, Holtz selected Bach's E-Major Concerto for Violin for inclusion in the tape.
'I chose that particular concerto,' explained Holtz, 'because it has many repetitious but varying notes. Bach was such a musical genius he could change his harmonic rhythm at nearly every other beat, with his chords going from E to B to G-sharp and so on, whereas Vivaldi would frequently keep to one chord for as long as 4 measures. That's why Bach is considered the greatest composer that ever lived. I chose Bach's string concerto, rather than his more popular organ music, because the timbre of the violin, its harmonic structure, is far richer than that of the organ.'
Holtz next delved into what for him was a whole new world of bird melodies. In the 1930s, Aretas Saunders, author of Guide to Bird Songs, had developed a method of visually representing, through a newly devised audio-spectrogram, the arias of singing birds that can neither be described in words nor adequately shown with any accuracy on a musical staff.
Soon Holtz came to see where the various predominating pitches in birdsongs could be calibrated by reference points on the musical scale and their harmonics.
Dan Carlson
had instinctively hit upon frequencies that were the ideal electronic analogues for a bird choir. 'It was thrilling,' said Holtz, 'to make that connection.
I began to feel that God had created the birds for more than just freely flying about and warbling. Their very singing must somehow be intimately linked to the mysteries of seed germination and plant growth'...
A yellow warbler, looking for all the world like a canary, flew, as if reading his mind, to perch on the top of a tree outside his bedroom window and, as if cued by his band maestro's baton, burst into song. Holtz grabbed his tape recorder and managed to register an aria that went on and on for 9 to 10 minutes. In the field guide he found that the little bird registers a high 8,000 cps. (Cycles per second). Drawn deeper into the subject, Holtz consulted books that detail the structure of birdsong, such as Vocal Communication in Birds, Born to Sing and Bird Sounds and Their Meanings. He also consulted biological texts to find that tiny villi (minute shaggy hairlike tufts in the cochlea of the human inner ear) vibrate to certain 'window' frequencies.
'What I was trying to figure out with Dan Carlson was what exactly we were oscillating
in plants
', Holtz explained.
Looking at drawings of a cell, Holtz further discovered the representation of a sub-cellular structure within the cyptoplasm known as a mitochondrion. Pointing to the enlarged drawing of one of them he asked, 'Of what does their shape remind you?'  A glance suggested the form of the sound box of a violin.
'That's right!' Holtz exulted. 'And I found it more than of passing interest that the resonant frequency of mitochondria is 25 cps, which, if interpolated upward, gets to a harmonic of 5,000 cps, the same frequency used by Dr Pearl Weinberger to grow winter wheat 2.5 times larger than normal with 4 times the average number of shoots,
as reported in Dorothy Retallack's The Sound of Music and Plants. It could be that the frequencies he used vibrated not only the mitochondria in the wheat seeds, but the water surrounding them, increasing the surface tension and thus enhancing penetrability through the cell wall.'
Holtz connected this to Retallack's having also discovered that the transpiration rate rose, indicating greater growth activity in her experimental plants when they 'listened' to Bach, 1920s jazz, or the Indian strains of Ravi Shankar's sitar - whereas exposed to hard rock, with the same rate nearly tripled, within 2 weeks the plants were dead.

'I believe such frenetic music,' said Holtz, 'was too much for their overall systems.
The intense, grindingly monotonous energy in that rock sound could have virtually blown the cells apart.
Young volunteers for the US Navy who have listened to that type of music since childhood have been rejected because of partial deafness, even before reaching the age of 20.'
Asked if one could simply play the recording of a crescendo involving all of a symphony orchestra's instruments with their hundreds of frequencies and harmonics and allow plants to select those best suited for their needs, Holtz replied: 'You have to take into account a law of diminishing returns. Too big a dose of anything is not necessarily of greater benefit than just a little or even a tiny dose.'
It seemed significant that Holtz, the musicologist, could say this without any knowledge of homeopathic 'potentising'.
Carlson, who we met in Kansas City at one of Charlie Walter's annual eco-agriculture conferences, explained his approach with lively enthusiasm. 'What I've tried all along to do with the sonic part of Sonic Bloom,' he expostulated, his jet-black hair and pirate beard reflecting the hue of the Western-cut suit he wears for public lectures, giving him the air
of an Amish elder, 'is to stay within boundaries set by nature. I think there are certain cosmic forces which can account, however 'unscientifically', for much of our success. Properly adapted they will get plants to grow better…or even inspire people to relate to one another more harmoniously. There's plenty of evidence that various frequencies of both sound and color can be curative.  But 'hard rock' is not consonant with nature's own harmonics.
I believe birds exposed to it for long periods would fall ill and die, just as Retallack's plants withered away."
He waved his hands like an evangelist. 'I get over 100 calls a year, from people experimenting with my broadcasts.
Most of them say that when the sound is turned on plants actually turn away from the sound to grow toward the speakers
.  Always.
To me that means the sound is as important to plants as whatever we understand about photosynthesis. Perhaps that's what Rachel Carons meant when she intimated that spring might one day be silent without Vivaldi's violins.

With a cold Minnesota winter coming on, and limited space in which to carry on his early experiments in a VHA-financed home, Carlson took a big step: he spent 88 cents on a tropical Gynura aurantiaca or purple passion vine. Known also as a velvet plant, native to the Indonesian island of Java, its fleshy teardrop leaves are densely covered with violet veins and hairs, and its yellow-orange dish like flowers exude a nasty smell. But to Carlson this was his cherished baby. Once a month with a cotton swab he applied doses of nutrient to the top of his vegetal pet, almost homeopathically weak doses, while simultaneously getting it to 'listen' to his sonics. The swabbing turned the top a withering brown, but quickly a new sprout burgeoned forth one leaf below the dead tip to grow at an accelerated rate. Within a few days, the original tip had completely recovered and was spurting rapidly ahead, both shoots exhibiting thick, healthy stalks and exceptionally large leaves.
As the vine crawled upward out of its pot, Carlson screwed teacup hooks into the wall of his kitchen, 6 inches apart, to support it; and so fast did the vine race for the hooks, he had to add 6 every week.
At which point he made another startling discovery.
If he snipped the growing tips with a scissors, the Javanese plant, far from daunted, put out a new shoot at the 1st leaf node below the cut.
As novel as this seemed to Carlson, he was even more puzzled by his pet's growing not only the teardrop leaves characteristic of its species, but also saw-toothed ones typical of its Indian cousin Gynura sarmentosa, along with completely alien split leaves previously never seen on any purple passion plant. The sound-plus-solution treatment appeared to be strangely affecting something to do with his vine's genetic qualities even as it grew.
In a paper on his experiment submitted to his profession, Carlson presciently asked: 'Does one cell of a plant genus contain all the characteristics of all the species of that genus?
If not, why has my plant, grown from a Gynura aurantiaca cutting, developed leaves, over 90% of its length, peculiar to the Gynura sarmentosa and, at the same time, exhibited an entirely new split-leaf form? Could the combined application of nutrient and audio energy result in such rapid growth rate that the very process of evolution is condensed?
Have I enabled my plant to adapt more quickly to its environment?
Is this the reason for the different leaf characteristics appearing on one plant?
If any of these questions can be answered 'yes', can this knowledge be applied to other plants?
Could food crops be treated to achieve more rapid growth and better adaptability to their own or alien environments?'

As winter wore into spring, and summer into fall, Carlson noticed another oddity: his plant had bloomed not the usual once, but twice.  Even more fantastic was its incredibly extending length. In only the first 3 months, the vine, which normally never exceeds a length of 18-24 inches, had grown a total stem of 150 feet.  
During the rest of the year it pushed on at the same rate, out of the kitchen through a 1.5 inch hole bored in the wall leading to the living room, where it roved back and forth along the ceiling on wires strung 18" apart, to attain a length of over 1/10 of a mile.

During the next year Carlson began snipping 4" shoots from his vine, which he started in small plastic pots. 400 of these, labelled with his address and phone number and a request to call him for a replacement should the shoots die, he took to a flea market, where they rapidly sold for $4 apiece.
'I had many calls,' he reminisced, 'but none were to complain about sick or dying plants.' Instead the callers wanted to know why the offshoots from my mother plant were growing 20, 30, 40, 50 feet long, and even more. I at once thought that this unheard-of development might give rise to the possibility of whole new strains of hardier super flora.
Despite this achievement, worthy of Luther Burbank, when Carlson, in happy excitement, asked member so his university committee to come to his house to see for themselves what he had done, their only reaction amounted to a yawn.
Didn't he realize, they asked, that, because his results had been obtained on a non-edible house plant, they were of no commercial value or interest? (Despite the fact that he had made $1,600 from a plant that cost him 88 cents).
Desperate to get anything into the public record that would substantiate his achievement, Carlson wrote to Guinness Superlatives Limited in Middlesex, England, publisher of the famous Guinness Book of World Records, which sent to Minnesota to check his claim 'specialists in the matter of freaks in the plant kingdom.'
Carefully measuring his plant's stem, inch by inch over its entire length, the freak specialists congratulated Carlson. That same autumn the new edition of the record book had an entry on page 113 extolling his find. To counter the notion that his new method was commercially valueless, Carlson next began to supply portable sonic equipment and nutrient mix to backyard gardeners who had called him after the Minneapolis Star ran a huge photo of the Carlson family standing under the passion plant, its leaves intertwined in the supporting chain of a chandelier before proceeding, through additional holes in the wall, into his children's bedrooms.

Not to be outdone, the St Paul Dispatch, describing his African violets, with more than 400 blooms in a full spectrum of colors, and his morning glories, purple, blue , white, red and pink, as enveloping his house from its foundation to its roof eaves, quoted Carlson as foreseeing a Jack-and-the-Beanstalk world with gigantic flora capable of feeding multitudes while their stomata increased the Earth's supply of oxygen.
It occurred to Carlson that if Luther Burbank could coax a spiny cactus into losing its thorns by informing the plant that it no longer needed them because he would 'protect it', (see Secret Life of Plants), he too might get his climbing plants to adapt to human desires.
'I subscribed to Burbank's idea,' Carlson told us, 'that at the highest level, plants are capable of creating what is in the mind of man as a means of assuring their survival into future generations. I did not discount the many stories about trees which had borne no flowers or fruits for years, suddenly blossoming and bearing when threatened with an axe.'
One spring, as he collected the seeds from his morning glories for successive annual planting, Carlson and his 12 year old daughter, Justine, meditated on how to get the vines to respond to their lovingly felt desires by focusing on their favourite hues, purple for Dan, pink for Justine. 'We believed,' said Carlson, 'that the plants might respond to the colors we favoured and draw closer to us as we were mentally and emotionally drawing closer to them.' By late summer when the vines were putting out the usual mixed spectrum of blooms over most of Dan's house, he found massed all around his daughter's bedroom window nothing but pink flowers and around his own bedroom window only purple ones.
'This confirmed to me,' he said, 'that we can, in some still undefined way, communicate with plant life, which is even capable of altering the colors of flowers and the shapes of leaves. It must somehow be based on trust. The plants must feel your intent and realise that if they respond you'll save their seeds to assure their flourishing continuance.'
Even more intriguing was Carlson's belief that his method would allow him to determine the very likes and dislikes of plants. By exposing them to a varied menu of nutrients hitherto unavailable to them, he aimed, through their reactions, to find out which selections they might prefer, instead of just forcing them to accept what is believed is good for them.
This he hoped might ultimately lead to the elimination of deficiencies resulting in bad-tasting fruit or vegetables and the eradication of plant disease.
'What I began to realize,' said Carlson, 'was that my method was challenging the seeds' potential, a potential maximized with the right number of Sonic Bloom sprays, which have turned out to be 5, put on 2 weeks apart.' Striking a massive fist on the table for emphasis, he added: 'I believe I've come across a new principle that can be called indeterminate growth! It shatters the idea that plants are genetically limited to a given particular size or yield.'
This belief in a lack of limitation led Carlson to another principle: geometric progression. 
We began regularly to discover that plants treated during one growing season would pass along whatever changes were taking place in them, and create, right through their seeds, a successive generation 50% larger and more fruitful, even when the newly generating plants remained untreated with Sonic Bloom.
I also call this genetic elasticity, the latent ability of plants to exhibit characteristics hidden in their gene pools, pulling out advantageous ones that may have been hidden for hundreds of years.
This is connected to the ever-bearing trait brought out in McClurg's oranges.'
Sonic Bloom in Indonesia
In June 2003 the Indonesian Government put on an expo with 100 tables, but the main purpose of the show was to show off a 5 or so acre field of corn that had been grown with Sonic Bloom - and so was 13' tall, not the usual 5' tall.
Previously, the Indonesian government got a 100% increase in rice and a 100% increase in tea using Sonic Bloom.
How exactly are the spray and sound applied?  The Sound Units are activated by a solar cell which turns them on at daylight and off at nightfall. They are powered by a 12 volt battery and are fully weatherproof. They are usually mounted on a pole or tree in the middle of the growing area. These units are available in 3 different sizes...for 1-5 acres, 25-40 acres or
60 acres." - excellent -

Liester, author of Inner Voices: Converscations from Within) - "Carver's mysticism sprang from his conviction that nature held the answers to all of life's questions, and that the only requirement for obtaining these answers was a receptive ear.  Carver said, "I love to think of nature as unlimited broadcasting stations, through which God speaks to us every day, every hour, and every moment.  Carver's scientific discoveries originated from a rich inner life built upon a strong faith in divine powers.  His spirituality came not from participation in a particular church, but from a deeply personal relationship to his God.  "All my life," he said, "I have risen regularly at 4 o'clock, gone into the woods and talked with God.  There He gives me my orders for the day. Alone there with things I love most, I gather specimens and study the great lessons Nature is so eager to teach us all. When people are still asleep, I hear God best and learn my plan."  Carver also spoke with the subjects of his scientific inquiry. He was always seen to have a flower in his buttonhole, and he explained that he talked with the flowers and they revealed their secrets to him. "How do I talk to a little flower? Through it I talk to the Infinite. What is the Infinite? It is the silent, small force. It isn't the outer physical contact. No, it isn't that. The infinite is not confined in the visible world. It is not in the earthquake, the wind or the fire. It is that still small voice that calls up the fairies."  A fellow professor and close friend, Glenn Clark, said that Carver's gift of speaking to flowers sprang from love, humility, and acceptance. His humility was maintained by avoiding what he called "the 'I' disease."  Carver experienced awe in his encounter with the natural world."
George Washington Carver: The Man Who Overcame, by Lawrence Elliott, 1966 -
Chapter 7 -
GW Carver "wrote, 'No individual has the right to come into the world and go out of it without leaving behind him distinct and legitimate reasons for having passed through it. 
I pray that my work at Tuskegee will become my reason for living'...He told his students
he was not there to contribute to their individual gain; nor was the school.  His goal, and the school’s goal, was to lead their people forward.  He told them that only service counts.  One of his earliest students, who went on to become a lawyer in Oklahoma, later said, 'He taught me that the human brain—my brain—held incalculable wealth, and all I had to do to free it was to want to.'  Carver taught his students that there is no richer plant food than the things that are thrown away everyday.  He sent them to the woods to bring back buckets of leaf mold to spread on their experimental garden plots. 
He taught them that legumes (such as cowpeas) had the unique capacity to absorb nitrogen from the air and feed it back to the soil.  To everyone, Carver passed on his 'magic formula', i.e., 'Start where you are.'
Carver developed a movable school which became a worldwide institution. 
It started as a mule-drawn cart in 1906, and by 1918 had evolved into a huge automobile truck, a fully equipped traveling experiment station.  People from other counties and communities poured into Tuskegee for assistance in launching their own movable schools. 
Carver always believed that the movable school had been his most important work. 
It resulted in a nationwide revolution in soil conservation.
Boys would come to his room in 2’s and 3’s on Sunday afternoons.  Carver would talk to them about the relationship between science and the Scriptures.  He often acted out the roles of Biblical characters.  Once, when talking about the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah, he brought his story to a climax by touching off some chemicals in a great cloud of fumes and smoke.  The boys leaped to their feet and probably never forgot the story.
A boy asked him how he could know God.  Carver asked him what he was studying.
'Have you ever seen electricity?'  George asked.
'No.' Carver said, 'But when you make the proper contact, when you fulfill the laws of your trade, you can make a bulb light up, can’t you, because electricity is always there. 
Isn’t that right?'
'Yes,' the boy agreed.
'Well,' Carver said, 'God is always there, too—just waiting for you to make contact. 
He is all around you, in all the little things you look at, but don’t really see'...
Carver always stressed to his students that they should give to others, that they must learn to give what they had: their talents, their friendship, a cheering word. 
It was to students in his Bible classes that Carver related most of the aphorisms for which he is remembered, examples of which follow:
On getting things done:  'Back of my workshop, there is a little grove of trees, one has been cut down.  It makes a good seat.  I have made it a rule to go out and sit on it at 4 o’clock every morning, and ask the good Lord what I am to do that day.  Then I go ahead and do it.'  (How could I explain to a wife that I need to go out at 4 o’clock every morning to talk to the flowers?')
On Nature:  'I love to think of Nature as an unlimited broadcasting system through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune Him in.'
On opportunity:  'There is opportunity enough for anyone prepared to do what the world needs done'...
A lady who had sent for “the Tuskegee man” to see if he could help her ailing peach trees.  When she looked up and saw a poor and somber-looking Negro approaching, she asked  him if he would like to earn 50 cents cutting her grass.  For some reason, Carver was silent.  He went to the mower and neatly cut the grass in both front and back yards. 
Then he knocked on the door and said, 'Now, what seems to be the trouble with your peaches, Ma’am?'
Regarding the dilemma of what to do with excess peanuts, Carver told his students "how he went to his beloved woodlands in the predawn darkness of a morning in October and cried out, 'Oh, Mr. Creator, Why did you make the Universe'...
'The Creator answered me. "
You want to know too much for that little mind of yours."
He said, "
Ask me something more your size."
'So I said, "Dear Mr. Creator, tell me what man was made for.’"
'Again He spoke to me. He said, "
Little man, you are still asking for more than you can handle.  Cut down the extent of your request and improve the intent”...
'Then I asked my last question. "Mr. Creator, why did You make the peanut?"
That’s better!" the Lord said.
He gave me a handful of peanuts and went with me back to the laboratory. 
Together, we got down to work'...
Now his strength came from within.  He felt himself to be in God’s hands, the mortal instrument of a divine revelation. 
[Note:  This story is somewhat reminiscent of Handel’s experience when he composed the oratorio, 'Messiah' at breakneck speed (and hardly eating) for 23 consecutive days]...
Carver continually put the needs of others ahead of his own.  There have always been those who are militant in the fight for racial equality.  Carver did not perceive this to be his calling.  He once said, 'If I used my energy struggling to right every wrong done to me, I would have no energy left for my work.'

"Born into the humblest of circumstances amidst the turbulence of the Civil War, Carver was the son of a slave mother and a father he never knew. 
(He was rescued and adopted by a white family)...
He served as nutritional adviser to Mahatma Gandhi, agricultural consultant to the Russian government, and massage therapist for the Iowa State football team. Remarkable souls are not always awarded the recognition they deserve, yet Carver received numerous accolades. His paintings received honorable mention at Chicago's 1893 World's Fair,
and the Royal Society for the Encouragement of the Arts in London elected him a Fellow. He was awarded the Spingarn Medal for Distinguished Service to Science and the Theodore Roosevelt Medal for outstanding contributions to agriculture. 2 honorary doctor of science degrees also were bestowed upon him.  He was awarded honorary membership in the American Inventors Society. Popular Mechanics magazine selected him one of 50 outstanding Americans.  He was elected to the Hall of Fame for Great Americans.{2} Variously referred to as the Peanut Man, the plant doctor, or the sage of Tuskegee, Carver counted Henry Ford among his closest friends."
Carver believed "that nature held the answers to all of life's questions, and that the only requirement for obtaining these answers was a receptive ear. Carver said, 'I love to think of nature as unlimited broadcasting stations, through which God speaks to us every: day, hour, and moment of our lives.'  Carver's scientific discoveries originated from a rich inner life built upon a strong faith in divine powers. His spirituality came not from participation in a particular church, but from a deeply personal relationship to his God. 'All my life,' he said, 'I have risen regularly at 4 AM, gone into the woods and talked with God. There He gives me my orders for the day. Alone there with things I love most, I gather specimens and study the great lessons Nature is so eager to teach us all. When people are still asleep, I hear God best and learn my plan.'

A fellow professor and close friend, Glenn Clark, said that Carver's gift of speaking to flowers sprang from love, humility, & acceptance. His humility was maintained by avoiding what he called 'the (me, myself and) "I" disease.' Carver experienced awe in his encounter with the natural world...
Carver the Outcast - His willingness to publicly discuss his inspired methods of research left him at odds with the scientific community's dedication to a rational, deductive methodology. Intuition & divine revelation were not held in high esteem as methods of scientific inquiry in Carver's day any more than they are today. Yet these were the very methods he employed, and he was not prone to denying them. Carver articulated his philosophy regarding the inextricable link between scientific discovery and the mystical in a letter written in 1927: 'We can only understand the infinite as we loose the finite & take on the infinite.'{7}  Carver did not deny the importance of rational thought, but regarded it as a means of confirming & illustrating truths obtained 1st mystically. Such openness regarding his methodology did not endear him to critics, & indeed a 1924 New York Times (newspaper) editorial claimed that he showed 'a complete lack of the scientific spirit.'  The Times went on to say that 'real chemists' do not attribute their successes to inspiration, & warned that Carver would bring discredit to his race and to Tuskegee Institute.{9} Strong words directed at a man whose achievements were so conspicuous."  Source: THE QUEST Winter 1995
George Washington Carver - http://www.madehow.com/inventorbios/73/George-Washington-Carver.html#ixzz4SVyJDCHT
"an undersized, soft spoken genius, achieved fame asan agricultural chemist, botanist, educator, and inventor, though he refused to patent or capitalize on most of his innovations. His study of peanuts and peanut products, sweet potatoes, & soybeans led to an economic bonanza for the southern farmer by providing an alternative to cotton & tobacco as staple crops. A native of Diamond Grove, Missouri, he was born a slave.
His birth-date was never recorded. When Carver was an infant he was kidnapped along with his brother Jim and their mother Mary by slave rustlers. His mother was sold, but George suffered from whooping cough & was left to die.
When Carver's original master sought to find his stolen slaves, the price for the sickly child immediately increased.
The thieves required Carver's master to trade a $300.00 race horse for the boy's ransom. Following the Emancipation Proclamation in 1865, George was adopted by his former owners, Moses & Sue Carver, who gave him their surname, & tried to obtain an education for him at African-American schools. From the age of 6, he studied on his own, focusing on woods and wildflowers, which he enjoyed cultivating & using as subjects for his oil & water color paintings. At age 10, he moved to Neosho, Missouri, to attend a 1-room school.  He formed strong family ties with an African-American couple, Mariah & Andy Watkins, who became his foster parents. By age 13, Carver migrated to Minneapolis, Kansas, obtained a high-school diploma, and worked as an independent field laborer. In an effort to further his education, he applied for & received a scholarship to Highland University, but the offer was rescinded when the university president realized that Carver was African-American.
To avoid further constraints on his efforts, Carver had to move farther north to seek an education. As the 1st African-American to attend Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, he worked as a cook and earned the $12 annual tuition. At his teachers' suggestion, he advanced to Iowa State College of Agriculture & Mechanic Arts (Iowa State University). There he concentrated his efforts in the natural sciences. He obtained his bachelor's degree in agriculture in 1894 and joined the school's faculty as an assistant professor of botany & overseer of the greenhouse. In this capacity, he became the first African-American ever to teach at the university. Carver received his master's degree in 1896. Carver achieved so notable a name that Booker T. Washington offered him an annual salary of $1,500 to head the new agriculture program at Tuskegee Institute in Tuskegee, Alabama. In the school's primitive, understaffed laboratory, he made the bulk of his discoveries, such as the hybridization of short-& tall-stalk cotton. He also devoted himself to educating farmers on crop rotation & diversification to avoid overworking their fields. Carver's dedication to the school and to agriculture was so great that he refused lucrative offers to join the laboratories of Henry Ford & Thomas Alva Edison. To bolster farm income, Carver focused on humble plants. He created over 300 products from the peanut, including dye, shoe-polish, soap, plastic , wood stain, flour, and milk & cheese substitutes.  In 1921, he testified before the Congressional Ways and Means Committee concerning the need to protect American peanut growers from foreign competition.
He derived 118 by-products from the sweet potato, such as syrup, starch, wood stain, and flour. Experiments with other plants produced cosmetics, breakfast cereals , fertilizer, oil, food additives, dye, paint, and medicine prototypes. He promoted uses for okra fiber and native clays; also, 3 fungi he discovered were named for him. Along with laboratory work, Carver involved himself in community outreach. He took his 'school on wheels' into the countryside to educate illiterate rural families about scientific farming methods & food preservation. One of his most beneficial lessons was support for the tomato as versatile food for home & sale. He became a champion of recycling and waste control, lectured on horticulture at leading universities, & wrote numerous pamphlets explaining to farmers how improved techniques could raise their standard of living."
Carver, George Washington -https://billyebrim.org/minneapolis-st-paul-area-&-the-soul-of-this-nation/ 5/29/2020 - (edited) 'Dr. George Washington Carver Prophecy - This great African-American genius of science who literally saved the agriculture of the South was born to a mother who had been a slave. His 'secrets' were learned from One he called, 'Mr. Creator.' Rising at 4 o’clock every morning he communed with the Lord. Later in the day taking no book but the Bible into his laboratory he worked out what Mr. Creator had given him.  In his wonderful book, The Man Who Talks with the Flowers, The Life Story of Dr. George Washington Carver, Glenn Clark records: 'My 3rd meeting with Dr. George Washington Carver was the fitting climax of them all. He had been invited to speak as the high point in a Crusade for Christ being put on in Minneapolis.' [The author describes the supernatural meeting in detail. In his introduction of Dr. Carver at the meeting, Glenn Clark ended with, 'No one ever sees him without a flower in his buttonhole & the love of God in his heart']…
The next day I took him to the chapel in Macalester College. His address there was just as wonderful and carried us even further than the address before the larger group the night before. When he closed, they applauded till I began to wonder whether the next period classes would ever have a chance to meet. I finally raised my hand to still the enthusiastic boys and girls & said, ‘Dr. Carver has an encore. Great as he is as a speaker, he is still greater as a man of prayer…so I am going to ask Dr. Carver to put his blessing upon us in a closing prayer.
As we rode to the station, Dr. Carver said, ‘Last night as I rode to the auditorium I was holding a little white flower in my hand all the way, and in the silence while we rode, I was talking to it and it was talking to me. It told me some wonderful things. The flowers have never failed to tell me the truth. It told me that there is going to be a great spiritual awakening in the world.  It is going to come from people up here, from people connected with you and me, from plain, simple people who know, not merely believe, but actually know that God answers prayer. It is going to be a great revival of Christianity, not a revival of religion…a revival of true Christianity. It is going to rise from the laymen, from men who are going about their work & putting God into what they do, from men who believe in prayer & want to make God real to mankind.’
Personally transmitted stories about Billy Graham, Dr. Lileon B. Yeomans, Dr. Frank & Irene Lindquist & others are a part of my God-given memory bank of His workings in Minneapolis St Paul unto this day"...(Billye Brim concludes:)
The Soon-Coming Great Awakening - With all my being I see this greatest of all awakenings and harvests on the horizon. Therefore I know that the enemy of God and man is going to do everything in his power to stop it. He too has seen how God has marked the Minneapolis' St Paul area for a great part in praying in the awakening.  So, I know, without a doubt that behind the riotous aftermath, and possibly even behind, the initial incident is the prince of the powers of the air and his cohorts.  But I also know without a doubt that these evil spiritual forces can be stopped by the believers in the area using their God-given spiritual weapons. Especially THE AUTHORITY OF THE BELIEVER (book or booklet). Sitting in their seats at the right hand of the Father and taking authority over the powers of the air, forbidding them to operate. This is something that has to be done daily. Not just ascribed to by head faith. But practiced by doing the Word of God.  Yes, the devil has great wrath seeing his time is short. But we overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Combatting every word of the accuser of the brethren morning and night with the weapons of our warfare that are not carnal but mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds" (with our mouths and army host, in Jesus' name, blood and resurrection power).

Findhorn Garden - http://www.findhorn.org/aboutus/vision/co-creation/ - (Uncertain if this is scientific, demonic, godly, or a bit of each?) - "Eileen and Peter Caddy, Dorothy Maclean, and Robert Ogilvie Crombie practice meditation, godly or otherwise?  "As her communication with the forces of nature developed, Dorothy (MacLean) realized that she was in contact not with the spirit of an individual plant, but with the ‘overlighting’ being of the species, which was the consciousness holding the archetypal design of the species and the blueprint for its highest potential. She was experiencing a formless energy field for which there is no word. The closest word to convey the joy and purity that these beings emanated was the inaccurate word ‘angel’ (which in the west is full of form), and her first thought was to call them that. However, the Sanskrit term ‘deva’, meaning ‘shining one’ seemed more accurate and freer of cultural associations. In practice, she uses both words, although neither word is adequate. Peter and Dorothy applied the insights of the meditations to their work in the garden, and through this the Findhorn garden flourished. These were the first steps in the Findhorn Community’s co-creation with nature."

Henry Gruver's - Heaven Visit pt.1: Alive_Again  Apr 5, 2014 - http://www.christianforums.com/
- "All of a sudden in my peripheral vision, a long golden pavement, I looked and I saw these beautiful colors, and I looked down, they were flowers. I have never on the earth, and believe me, I've loved flowers since I was a little boy.  Well, I love flowers, and if you have a love for something, here on the earth, when you get into Heaven, you will be drawn to the perfection of beauty of what that is. Do you believe that? It really will.  I was drawn to these flowers. I'm looking at them. I'm saying (I didn't say it with my mouth. I didn't have to speak anything.), I said it in my mind. No verbalization was needed. In my thoughts I said, 'You are so beautiful! I have never seen such colors and such beautiful flowers in perfect in all of the fragrance; as sweet can be. I no more than thought that, and all of the stems of these flowers, where the leaves come out, all of a sudden, the leaves started doing 'this' on the stems (clapping) all over on those flowers, the leaves were clapping their hands.'
The faces of those flowers turned away from me and turned another direction.  I heard the sweetest singing coming out of those flowers. They burst forth, but I wanted to burst forth in gratitude in watching the white raiment. they literally broke loose into the sweetest singing. I can tell you the words they sang. I'll never forget them...
They were singing this song, 'All praise, all glory, and all honor and thanksgiving to the Father for creating us and counting us worthy to serve the redeemed.'  As they sang this song, their words turned into like 'prismatic light'. A prismatic light,
I followed it with my eyes. I could watch the light moving.  The light was moving and I watched it with my eyes and followed it and it went up to this hill. Then as I looked over this hill was coming the most beautiful glow. All of Heaven where I was had...an extra glow! Instantly when I saw that glow, I knew that it was the throne that I was looking at. I didn't see the throne. It was on the other side. but I was seeing the radiation from the throne, and the light that emanated from those flowers, as they sang, went to the throne. I was made to understand that all of God's creation, that all of life when it gives honor and glory and thanksgiving and praise back to the Father for creating it; it's reciprocating (recycling) from the cycle of life. It is regenerated in that matter. Because as the river of life flows from beneath the throne, so does the essence of all life flow from the throne.  So when you give thanks, you are literally being regenerated. You're being recharged. Everything in heaven is being regenerated continually in the presence of His glory.  So you see, the perfection of beauty. You see no degeneration. In the Word of God it says, 'we are being changed into His likeness, from glory to glory. Here a little, there a little.  Line on line, precept upon precept.'  I know to us, it seems like it's just way too long. It's not happening fast enough. As you know the reason for that. Please understand. I've asked the reason for that. He said, 'I would that not one would perish. I am longsuffering with mankind. They have chosen the ways of darkness, and the ways of the world, but I have chosen to redeem whosoever. I will plead with them, until I see that the table is overturned. 
There would be too many would be lost if I allowed it to go any farther.
I will have to step in, and I will have to intervene; purge the land of the corruption, lest everyone is corrupted through it.'

"This is what I meant a while ago when I asked you if you understood. what the scriptures means, when Samuel the prophet told Saul, "Utterly slay all; men, women, and children, and everything that breathes and moves." The reason he had to do that is because they had become so vile and so corrupt as I mentioned to you, the measure of corruption that
is now in our land is degenerating our nation rapidly
All of a sudden, out of my left ear, I heard more singing. so I turned and I looked to see what was happening. the person that I had been following had stepped off of the pavement of gold, and I looked and I could see kind of footprints, like he was heading into the 3rd and 4th step. The blades of grass that he had his feet, had stepped on, were singing the same song as the flowers. Every step, the song was louder, but yet it was so sweet and it was so soft. Never once was anything overbearing in Heaven.
It stayed in perfect unison and perfect harmony, yet the grass had a different tone from the flowers, and it's blending in, only blended in the more beautiful harmony, or to a more beautiful harmony...
It's becoming more significant that more voices are joining in. It is joining in.
The flowers are singing and still clapping their leaves. Now the grass is singing.

It wasn't clapping its blades together. It was just the sweetest tone coming out of the grass. I'm watching. The same emanation of light is in the song going toward the throne; I saw it going.  It went right toward the throne. Every blade of grass is joining in, in this prismatic light that goes toward the throne in worship...joining more and more.
I'm just rippling with joy, but...I'm watching this person.
I see that they are going toward the tree, such as I have never seen in my life...
I didn't take time to count the number of different kinds of fruit on it.
But it had numerous types of fruit on it that I had never seen the likes of in my life.
It had the most beautiful healthy leaves on the tree. Loaded with fruit from top to bottom. 
The person walked up to this tree, reached their hand out...about 3-4 inches underneath 1 of these fruits...
The moment the person just opened their hand...the fruit very gently dropped into their hand.
The tree 'knew the thoughts' of the person and freely gave of its fruit.
Then, every leaf on that tree began to clap together. Out of that tree was like a massive choir that filled Heaven with music of the flowers and the grass. 
It was like a massive choir, in perfect harmony, worshiping the Lord.
That tree just swayed like it was in a dance. Singing unto the Lord.  You know in the Word of God, it says that, 'the mountains and hills shall break forth into singing before You; the trees of the field shall clap their hands'.
What are their hands? The leaves. All of creation rejoices in the Father...
As I stood...I couldn't take it anymore. I turned. I had to worship the Lord.  I continued to worship the Lord. 
Then all of a sudden, I was back down on the floor; feeling my nose on the floor.
My body was wet with perspiration from worshiping the Lord with all of my might.
They said, that I never stopped crying, 'Holy, holy, holy!' all of the time. In fact, my wife started singing it just a minute or two after 10:00. When I got back up and sat down, saying, 'I can't begin to tell you what I just experienced.' I looked up at the clock on the wall, then I looked at my watch, and I said, 'It can't be...not 4:15 is it?'  Others began to look at their watches.  They said, 'Why, it sure is!' How could 6 hours have gone that quickly? Not 1 person in that room realized 6 hours had gone. Not 1 elderly person wearied of being on their face on the floor. the presence of God was so real and so precious.
That's the reason I call it 6 Hours in Heaven."

"Plants can ‘talk’ to each other. When attacked by a caterpillar, a tomato plant starts to produce defense chemicals.
It also warns neighboring plants by exuding a scent as an SOS-signal. These tomatoes then also start to produce the defense chemicals, even though they are not being attacked.  (This scent, methyl-jasmonate, is often used in perfumes. During the experiments women were asked not to use perfume because this could confuse the plants.) Scientists are trying to find out if these scents could be used to warn tomato plants in advance of a caterpillar invasion. The plants would be perfectly prepared: a clever strategy, using nature’s own methods."

Tree of Life - Right and Wrong by Dennis Reanier - "The tree of the knowledge of good and evil has the appearance of living the abundant life, but it is not the abundant life. It is a form of religion without a relationship with Jesus Christ. It represents the understanding of right and wrong resulting in the curse of independence and selfish ambition. Its appearance tries to deceive us of our true identity, so we will strive and work in our own mind, strength and abilities to try to receive all that has already been given to us in Christ. The Tree of Life represents a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ, a relationship of dependency upon God. It not only has the appearance of the abundant life, but it actually is the abundant life. It never stops bearing fruit."

Horowitz, Dr Len - http://www.drlenhorowitz.com/freq_asked_questions.htm  - "Sound & prayer has been shown by Dr. Masaru Emoto from Japan www.masaru-emoto.net to dramatically impact the structure & electrical qualities of water and water clusters...Hidden Messages in Water & Messages From Water by Dr. Masaru Emoto:
A Book Review by Dr. David Wheeler.   Reverse osmosis water may be pure, but it is dead—energetically lifeless. That’s why you need to also electrically recharge this water before it is optimal...Store waters sold in plastic containers pick up the toxic plastics to some degree, & are less than ideal. Choose glass bottles to store your water.  (One of) the best water found in health-food stores is Trinity Water from a deep well in the great state of Idaho. The high pH of Trinity's 'Original' water is therapeutic & should be taken as directed on their label.
"Dr Masaru Emoto has shown that molecules of water are affected by our thoughts, words & emotions. Through this highly visual technique he has shown to the world that the energy vibrations change the form of water crystals. Positive words & images create beautiful crystal forms & the negative creates distorted crystals (quantum pollution)...
[Findings gave rise to the HADO theory. (Kumanga Andrahennadi MA, Prof Seaton Baxter (OBE) & Dr. Emoto's non-Christian conclusion:)  Dr Emoto’s experiments suggest that water has an inherent spirit within it. We are 70% water & are primarily alive because of water. Within the human environment, water itself becomes a living form. The spirit within us is ultimately linked with the spirit of water itself.]" http://www.watercrystalstudy.com/
[Lord, open both our hearts & our minds to Your truths.  Lord as Moses contended with the magicians & Elijah with the priests, so please help us to differentiate between what is natural law in the earth & what is spiritual law (& to discern which is demonic, which is Godly).  Thank You.  Amen.]  http://www.masaru-emoto.net/english/lakebiwa_event.html   
"Head Priest from Chikubujima Shrine, Mr. Ikushima gave Shinto Prayer and the Buddhist monk, Dai Ajari-Genshin Fujinami from Mt. Hiei gave a blessing inside of the (Golden) pyramid (of peace) & the Hado vibration of the field even increased more and more" (affecting bottled water inside the pyramid). 
http://www.hadousa.com/ - "Hado is the intrinsic vibrational pattern at the atomic level in all matter, the smallest unit of energy. Its basis is the energy of human consciousness," per Dr. Masaru Emoto.  Hado "means wave motion or vibration.
Within the past few decades hado has been spoken of in the context of philosophy, science and quantum physics. More recently, the definition has expanded into the spiritual realm to express the healing properties and transformative powers of this life-force energy," per Toyoko Matsuzaki. (Consider: If occult priests can pray over water to improve PH, then certainly we Christians through the Holy Spirit can bless our water or food, plus heal it and ourselves, rather than having to invest in someone else's water and perhaps even demons!)

Water-Gen’s medium-size unit provides 450 liters of clean water daily. Photo: courtesy -
According to the World Health Organization, tainted water is one of the factors causing 1.7 million children annually to die during their first 5 years.
Water-Gen also has portable water filtration solutions for emergencies and relief efforts, including Spring, a lightweight battery-operated system.
April 2017, Water-Gen is launching its 1st pilot study in Miami-Dade County, Florida, which will be analyzed as a prototype for additional US locations.
“Water-Gen is focused on improving the quality of life for billions worldwide who suffer from inaccessibility to safe drinking water and thus saving millions of lives,”
said Dershowitz, who noted that “no country in the world has contributed more to lifesaving technology in a mere 69 years than the nation of Israel.”
All AIPAC delegates had a chance to try Water-Gen units for themselves.

Zero Mass Water in Scottsdale, Arizona., "has begun selling a solar-based system that does not have to be hooked up to an electric grid or an existing water system. A solar panel provides energy that both drives air through a proprietary water-absorbing material and powers condensation of the extracted moisture into fluid. A small lithium-ion battery operates the device when the sun is not shining. A unit with 1 solar panel, the company says, can produce 2-5 liters of liquid a day, which is stored in a 30-liter reservoir that adds calcium and magnesium for health and taste (hopefully organic). Cody Friesen, founder of Zero Mass Water and a materials scientist at Arizona State University, developed the system with the aim of having it work sustainably and easily anywhere in the world. An installed system with 1 solar panel sells in the U.S. for about $3,700. That price tag includes a required 10% donation toward reducing costs for installations in parts of the globe lacking water infrastructure. The same unit that reduces the need for bottled water in the U.S., Friesen notes, can also provide clean water to a school that lacks  it so that children “are able to get educated and not get sick.” Over the past year, he says, systems have been placed in the southwestern U.S. and several other countries."

Black Mica - www.sunfood.com - "The secret of Adya Clarity (a brand name) comes from a little known substance called Black Mica (also known as Biotite). Black Mica is a rare, ancient, volcanic mineral deposit.
Adya Clarity uses a revolutionary process to extract the elements in Black Mica and make them 100% bio-available.
The structure of Black Mica contains intricate layers of iron, magnesium and potassium that create a cage-like structure which traps and neutralizes impurities...
Adya Clarity is a magnetic mineral solution that purifies and transforms your water into living, oxygenated, fresh tasting mineral water. Adya Clarity destroys bad bacteria, removes impurities and also electrically energizes water which in turn energizes your body. Adya Clarity does this by using the power of minerals in their ionic state.
Ionic minerals are bio-electrically charged by carrying an extra electron and can conduct and transfer energy.
These minerals are also known as electrolytes. In our bodies electrolytes are responsible for moving nutrients into our cells and removing wastes (detoxification)."

Emoto, Masaru - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAvzsjcBtx8 - 3/13/2009 - "head of the I.H.M.General Research Institute and President Emeritus of the International Water for Life Foundation, a Not for Profit Organization. 
Mr. Emoto has been visually documenting these molecular changes in water by means of his photographic techniques.
He freezes droplets of water and then examines them under a dark field microscope that has photographic capabilities.
Some examples from his works include:  Water from clear mountain springs and streams had beautifully formed crystalline structures, while the crystals of polluted or stagnant water were deformed and distorted. 
Distilled water exposed to classical music took delicate, symmetrical crystalline shapes.
When the words 'thank you' were taped to a bottle of distilled water, the frozen crystals had a similar shape to the crystals formed by water that had been exposed to Bach's 'Goldberg Variations'- music composed out of gratitude to the man it was named for.  
When water samples were bombarded with heavy metal music or labeled with negative words, or when negative thoughts and emotions were focused intentionally upon them, such as 'Adolf Hitler', the water did not form crystals at all and displayed chaotic, fragmented structures.
When water was treated with aromatic floral oils, the water crystals tended to mimic the shape of the original flower. 
Sometimes, when we cannot see the immediate results of our affirmations and or prayers, we think we have failed.
But, as we learn through Masaru Emoto's photographs, that thought of failure itself becomes represented in the physical objects that surround us...Realize that even when immediate results are invisible to the unaided human eye, they are still there. When we love our own bodies, they respond.
When we send our love to the Earth, she responds.  For our own bodies at birth are more than 60% water, and the % of water in our bodies remains high throughout life (depending upon weight and body type).
The earth's surface is more than 60 percent water as well. And now we have seen before our eyes that water is far from inanimate, but is actually alive and responsive to our every thought and emotion...Really understand the awesome power that we possess, through choosing our thoughts and intentions, to heal."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoTfyhK5WNQ #2
Solutions of moringa seeds for water treatment may be prepared from seed kernels or from the solid residue remaining after oil extraction (presscake).  Moringa seeds, seed kernels or dried presscake can be stored for long Water purification methods using seeds from the Moringa tree have been known about for centuries, but their use has been limited geographically.  In order to make an effective water purification system, the Moringa seeds are dried and then ground into a powder. Unlike other particles in the water such as clay, bacteria, and other toxic materials which are negatively charged, the protein in the Moringa seed powder is positively charged, thereby attracting the negatively charged particles like a magnet. The flocs formed by the floculation process can then be easily removed by allowing the water to settle, or removed by filtration.
Moringa oleifera seeds treat water on 2 levels, acting both as a coagulant and an antimicrobial agent. It is generally accepted that moringa works as a coagulant due to positively charged, water-soluble proteins, which bind with negatively charged particles (silt, clay, bacteria, toxins, etc) allowing the resulting "flocs" to settle to the bottom or be removed by filtration.
Application of plant flocculants such as Moringa oleifera is highly recommended for domestic water purification in developing countries, where people are used to drink contaminated turbid water. Moringa does not guarantee that the raw water ends up completely (100%) free of pathogenic germs. It is cleaned and drinkable but not completely purified. Since it reduces the number of suspended particles drastically ( flocculates ) it also reduces the quantity of microorganisms in raw water automatically. Consequently, this method might reduce water-born diseases in those countries considerably...
The harvest of a mature single tree (3 kg) will treat about 30,000 liters of water."

The flocs formed by the floculation process can then be easily removed by allowing the water to settle, or removed by filtration.
Moringa oleifera seeds treat water on 2 levels, acting both as a coagulant and an antimicrobial agent. It is generally accepted that moringa works as a coagulant due to positively charged, water-soluble proteins, which bind with negatively charged particles (silt, clay, bacteria, toxins, etc) allowing the resulting "flocs" to settle to the bottom or be removed by filtration.

Ozone - http://forzion.com/2012/03/13/germ-slaying-ozone-creates-pure-water/ - "An Israeli company is offering an alternative: an ozone-based cleaning system to purify tap water. The system, says Ittai Weissberg, CEO of Greeneng Solutions, is better at getting rid of germs, and is a lot safer than chlorine and ammonia-based cleaning solutions. And it does the job cheaply.
Ozone consists of 3 oxygen atoms instead of the normal 2, generated by ultraviolet light that breaks apart oxygen atoms and allows them to recombine into ozone. It’s long been known that once injected in water, ozone is extremely effective at killing bacteria: 50 percent more effective than chlorine and 3,200 times faster. No pathogen can survive ozone, nor can a germ adapt to it. In fact, the US Food & Drug Administration determined ozone to be a completely safe method of water decontamination in 2001."

"Retrieve a discarded water bottle. Tear off the label and fill with any water that’s not too murky from a creek, standpipe, or puddle. Place the bottle on a piece of metal in full sun. In 6 hours the UVA radiation will kill viruses, bacteria, and parasites in the water, making it safe to drink. SODIS http://www.sodis.ch/index_EN , the acronym for this Swiss-pioneered water-disinfection program, is now being used all over the world to provide drinking water."  (When possible, use glass, even liquor or baby bottle, to sterilize/purify water, rather than plastic, which leeches out into water.  How does one retrieve enough screw on bottle caps?)

Some advertised straws take the chlorine 30 minutes to work, thus voiding purported affects.

Seaweed - Filtration of water.  (Do NOT eat such seaweed after such use.)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seaweed  "The strong photosynthesis of algae creates a large affinity for nutrients; this allows the seaweed to be used purposely to remove undesired nutrients from water. Nutrients such as ammonia, ammonium, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, iron, copper, as well as CO2 are rapidly consumed by growing seaweed. Reefs and lakes are naturally filtered this way (the seaweed being consumed by fish and invertabrates), and this filtering process is duplicated in man-made seaweed filters such as algae scrubbers.[17]  Seaweed (macro-algae), as opposed to microalgae (phyto-plankton), is used almost universally for filtration purposes because of the need to be able to easily remove (harvest) the algae from the water, which then removes the nutrients. Microalgae require more processing to separate it from the water than macro-algae does; macro-algae is simply pulled out.  When used for filtration, saltwater algae commonly grows species of Cladophora, Ulva, and Chaetomorpha. Freshwater filtration applications are useful, too, and will commonly grow species such as Spirogyra."  (Thus this can be a warning to know the source of your edible seaweed.)

SODIS - http://www.sodis.ch/index_EN "SODIS (abbreviation of Solar Water Disinfection) is an initiative of Eawag... Contaminated water is filled in a transparent PET-bottle or glass bottle and exposed to the sun for 6 hours.
During this time, the UV-radiation of the sun kills diarrhea generating pathogens."
"Formation of reactive oxygen species during UV-irradiation is responsible for the inactivation process (inactivating harmful pathogens).  Membrane proteins involved in the energy generation of bacteria are the first targets of cell damage, followed by other protein damages and the aggregation of proteins. This process is very similar to the aging process of cells." Online videos
Solar Water Disinfection - http://en.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/1539785
Polycarbonate blocks all UVA and UVB rays, and therefore should not be used.
Glass also blocks UV rays and therefore would be ineffective...
Heavily scratched or old, blind bottles should be replaced (not used)...
intensity of the UV radiation decreases rapidly with increasing water depth. At a water depth of 10cm and moderate turbidity of 26 NTU, UV-A radiation is reduced to 50%. PET soft drink bottles are often easily available and thus most practical for the SODIS application...
Under normal conditions (rivers, creeks, wells, ponds, tap) water contains sufficient oxygen (more than 3 mg Oxygen per litre) and does not have to be aerated before the application of SODIS...
(Due to leeching of containers into water, avoid water warehoused/stored for several months.  Check expiration dates on store bought bottles.)  SODIS water is not stored over such extended periods in the (recycled) bottles...
If the water bottles are not left in the sun for the proper length of time, the water may not be safe to drink and could cause illness. If the sunlight is less strong, due to overcast weather or a less sunny climate, a longer exposure time in the sun is necessary...
Other methods for household water treatment and safe storage exist, e.g. chlorination (store fresh water in old Clorox bottles), different filtration procedures or flocculation/disinfection.C"

Shungite - https://beatemf.com/does-shungite-really-work/ - "There are a lot of methods available for making water safe to drink, such as water filters, iodine, boiling, and chlorine drops. However, as these methods eliminate ALL microorganisms and other bacteria (the good and bad), the overall quality of water is affected.  Sometimes, other water purification methods carry the risk of increasing heavy metals and salts in our drinking water. Shungite, on the other hand, is all natural, safe, and effective. It gets bonus points for being easy to use: Clean the Shungite stones to remove dust and other unwanted particles.  Then place them in your water.  Shungite water is believed to be effective for: (1) Reducing inflammation and acne (through topical application), (2) Detoxification, (3) Alleviating headaches, chronic respiratory illnesses, and digestive issues."  (CAUTION:  May be associated with paranormal energy rather than science.)
"Shungite is a lustrous black mineral discovered in the Karelia region of Russia, particularly near the Shunga Village.
The term 'Shungite' can refer to whole chunks of the stone or simply pieces or shards that contain it. 
Keep in mind as you shop. Although located primarily in the Karelia region, shungite is mined in other parts of Russia as well, mostly near old coal mines and sites where volcanoes have erupted.

In addition shungite possesses fullerenes.  The term 'fullerenes' pertains to molecules composed primarily of carbon in the form of a hollow sphere or tube-like shape, a special carbon-based molecular formation. Shungite is among the only known natural source of fullerenes on Earth.  Besides its absorption properties, fullerenes are among the most powerful antioxidants. As a result, Shungite helps protect body cells from harmful free radicals." (Compare to benoite clay & charocal)

 Hydro vs Aqua

http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/hydroponic-invasion-of-usda-organic "The vast majority of organic hydroponic produce sold in the United States is grown in Mexico, Canada, or Holland.
What’s so hugely ironic is that this very same produce cannot be labeled organic in the the country where it’s grown.
It has to be shipped to the United States to obtain the coveted organic label.  Mexico, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Holland, England, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, and 17 other European countries all prohibit hydroponic production to be sold as organic."
"When fish are added to a hydro-ponic system, it is called aqua-ponics – the integration of aquaculture and hydroponics.  Such a system cycles nutrient-rich water from fish tanks to naturally fertilize and irrigate, aka 'ferti-gate', the plants.
This is considered a highly sustainable system as the water is recirculated and reused with the plants acting as natural biological filters. Synthetics are never used as part of the process.  In contrast, hydroponics without the aquaculture component frequently involves plant fertility maintained using off-farm and even synthetic inputs. 
However, because aqua-ponics does not involve stewardship of natural and diverse soil ecology, it still should not be considered organic according to the NOSB."

These compounds are technically called silica hydrides. This makes Hunza water a power source, filled with the same active H- that powers the human body.
Typically hydrogen has one positively charged proton in the nucleus and one negatively charged electron orbiting the nucleus. The 2 opposite charges balance each other, resulting in no charge.  Active hydrogen, on the other hand, contains 2 electrons orbiting the nucleus, creating a negative charge. It is this active hydrogen in its charged form that the body needs to carry out its crucial functions. Dr. Flanagan has recreated this silica hydride compound as HYDROGEN BOOST" (capsules containing

Drip Irrigation

http://www.igin.com/article-1465-history-of-micro-irrigation-in-landscape_turf.html - "Farmers centuries ago developed a method of irrigating trees in a desert environment with a minimum amount of water. They used porous clay pots, which they filled with water and buried near the trees in the ground. The water slowly seeped through the walls of the pots, irrigating the area around the trees.  Since that ancient time, many methods have been experimented with, including clay pipes, perforated pipes, plastics and polyethylene tubing...
The greatest advancement in drip or micro irrigation came from Symcha Blass, a retired British Water Agency employee who immigrated to Israel. Inspired by a dripping faucet that he saw near a thriving tree, he applied his knowledge of micro tubing to drip. This essentially became the first efficient drip method.  Called the Blass System, water was transported and released through longer and larger tubing by using water to slow the velocity inside a plastic emitter. He went on to develop a molded coupling, which later developed into a 2-piece inline dripper.  Blass did his work at a kibbutz in Israel and formed the basis of a company called Netafim. Today, most all of Israel’s irrigation is drip."

If the air is humid, or if rain is forecast, the valve limits or cuts off the supply. If the soil lacks nutrients, Mr. Aramburu receives an alert on a smartphone app telling him to add fertilizer. It doesn’t hurt that the sensor initially analyzed the clay-filled dirt of his yard and recommended which plants would thrive there.

How serendipity in an Israeli lab led to drought-resistant plants - Israel - "Gepstein, who has advanced degrees in plant physiology from Tel Aviv University and did his postdoctoral work at the University of California on plant hormones
He is eager to put to rest any concerns about the safety of the genetic engineering behind the cytokinin modification, explaining that the risks of cross-breeding whole plants, which have hundreds of thousands of genes, are much greater since not every one of those gene mechanisms is well understood. This advance, by contrast, was achieved by modifying a single gene that is present in the plant in its natural state.'  We did not introduce any foreign genes;
we just extended the activity of the natural gene of one hormone that is already
in the plant. It’s completely native,' Gepstein stresses.
'It’s more accurate and more healthy because you know exactly what you are doing.'”

Edible Heaven

FOR KIDS - #261) Kat Kerr - A Place Called “Jello Land” Westgate Vineyard - Alive_Again, Mar 3, 2013
“Heaven is not boring. Amen? I know that there is some kids here, so you’re just have to put up with me talking about heaven for kids.
Because I don’t always get to talk to them; and so, anyone who already is a kid, or is childlike, you’re going to love this…”
God does make special places in Heaven just for kids!
They have a place called
‘Jello Land’. Why? Because kids like Jello. But it’s even more fun when you jump on it and eat it at the same time. They have all different flavors in this place where kids love to go. Especially when they 1st come to Heaven; they make friends right away.
They even actually have some created beings that look like children that aren’t really children.
They’re ancient beings that God made, so that when the children come to Heaven they have a new friend.
He knows like anyone else when you move to a new neighborhood, you don’t know anybody, the next door neighborhood kid…All they have to do is say, ‘Would you like to come and play’?They don’t care who that person is. Kids will run and play. And so He actually has even little ones to get the little toddlers at ease and have fun.
But they have a place called
‘Jello Land’, and that’s exactly what it is. All the buildings, the streets.
Everything is made out of Jello.
All kinds of flavors. It’s not going to melt. Don’t worry about that. The kids will run in, and grab parts of it off and eat it. They go into these little Jello houses and they bounce…back and forth off of the houses. They have places like swimming pools that are made out of Jello, and the kids actually dive in it. They try to tunnel through it and everything.
They’re being kids. And the whole time they’re eating it. And they have flavors up there
we don’t have down here.
They have different things to decorate on the Jello houses.
’re all edible. Like chocolate doorknobs.”
#262) Kat Kerr -
Waterfalls Made of Chocolate! From Westgate Vineyard
At the end of this place of Jello Land, there’s another place where the kids dive down waterfalls made out of chocolate. People are “Like that’s gonna ruin their teeth!” There is no problem with any kind of decay in Heaven.
If God made it, it’s safe. It’s kid friendly.’
‘I’m just going to let you know right now, Jesus has a sweet tooth. I can prove it in the Word. It actually ran in the family.
Now the Holy Spirit told me this 1 time. If you don
’t think He’s a character. He loves to tell jokes.
He is the One who is behind all poetry. Even people who never wrote poetry, when you go to Heaven,
it just comes out of you all of the time. You will write poems and go to these portals and say it to your family members on earth. They can’t hear you, but that doesn’t stop you from doing it; because you finally got creative.
You go over there and say these profound poems over your family members, or just somebody special from Heaven.
And they enjoy doing that because the Holy Spirit loves to rhyme.
  So He made this wonderful place where kids can dive down through chocolate waterfalls and enjoy every kind of flavor of chocolate possible.

“One little girl had her Momma write me and say, “I know my daughter’s got a big imagination (she was like seven), but I’m gonna ask you anyway because she keeps begging me.. Do they have chocolate houses in Heaven?” I answered back.. Absolutely yes. Probably one right next door to wherever your daughter will be living when she gets to Heaven.
It could possibly be on her property.  That was not the answer her mother was expecting.

Why would God want chocolate houses?” Because He is a fun Dad and wants His kids to have fun
What is better than chocolate anyway? I’m sure that if they had money in Heaven, it would be chocolate.
People have this weird idea of Heaven not being excitin

Heaven's Play

#263) Kat Kerr - Bubble Transports & Play Ports from Westgate Vineyard
Monday Evening 05 01-28-13 pt 2 of 3

"They have another place that you can go into, and they have these 'bubble transports'.
And you stand on these platforms, and a whole big bubble encases around you, and all of your friends get one of their own, and you go across the sky bumping your bubbles like 'this'.. and you bump off of each others.
You see all of these kids going around laughing and laughing. When you get to where they want to, they just pop it.
Isn’t that cool? I think we should have bubble transport down here! It doesn’t hurt the environment.
They do have playgrounds, but they call them ‘play ports’, because they’re not on the ground. They’re up in the sky. And they slide down real rainbows. Is that cool? They ride on music all over Heaven. They have all kinds of fantastic things. Your children, if they’re in Heaven, they are not bored! They’re living with family members or very close friends until you get there, and most of the time, God keeps them the same age they were when they came.”

                                                                               Edible Flowers

"Borage...has a cucumber like scent and flavor. The vivid blue flowers make a striking addition to a salad or a last minute garnish to cooked foods.
(Pot Marigolds) The petals work well in cooked and fresh dishes. Calendula is also used as a saffron substitute. The yellow or orange petals will color and flavor foods when chopped and sautéed.
Everyone is familiar with dandelion wine, but the flowers are also edible and quite delicious when young and tender. There are many cultivated varieties that have been developed for less bitter taste and more controlled growth, but even the so called weeds in your lawn can be eaten, provided you haven't used pesticides on them.
Daylily...flowers are edible, however they are often stuffed and prepared like squash blossoms. 
(Lily bulbs can be found in Asian supermarkets.)
Gem Marigolds (Tagetes tenuifolia):
'Lemon Gem' and 'Tangerine Gem' Marigolds are the only edible marigolds.
As their names suggest, they have a citrus flavor, even though you won't smell a citrus scent. Pull off the petals and break off and remove the bitter portion that comes to a right angle.
Herb Flowers:
(Anise Hyssop, Basil, Bee Balm, Chives, Cilantro, Dill, Fennel, Garlic...)
Many herb flowers are just as tasty as the foliage and more attractive. (Many plant roots are also edible as well as medicinal: burdock, ginseng.)
(LEAVES - many plant and tree leaves are nutritional - ginkgo balboa, tea.)
Add some petals to any dish you were already going to flavor with the herb.
Nasturtium...Flowers have a peppery tang to them. The bright colors make great accents in salads.
Can also be used to infuse vinegar. or even vodka.
Pansy: The whole flower is edible, sepals and all. Pansies have a mild, minty flavor.
The flowers work well for candying and make great decorations on top of hor d'oeuvres and cakes.
Squash Blossoms: All squash flowers are edible, not just zucchini.
A popular way of preparing them is to stuff the blossoms with cheese and fry them."
Plan ahead with perennial plants.  They provide a form of automated terrorism/disaster nutrition backup.

4It indeed happened while he was sowing, some fell beside the way; the birds came and ate it.  5Other seed fell on rocky  ground where it did not have much soil; it sprang up immediately, because it did not have a depth of soil.  6Then when the sun rose, it was scorched, because it did not have a root it withered.  7Other seed fell among the thorns; the thorns came up and they were choking it, and it did not give fruit.  8Others fell on the good soil and when it came up it was giving fruit and increasing and it was bearing: one 30, one 60, and another 100 times."  9He was saying, "Who has ears to hear must continually listen."

Kishorit village, Israel - http://www.greenprophet.com/2009/05/13/8954/kishorit-organic-kibbutz/
(Working on the organic goat farm at Kishorit, the largest organic goat farm in Israel that sells its 'fair trade' milk to Harduf, the largest organic food supplier in Israel.)
People born with mental deficiencies, or those afflicted later in life, are usually handed the short end of the stick. Facilities to accommodate needs and to help one cope in society are improving, but they fail to give those in need the advantages that “normal” people just take for granted. But not at Kishorit http://www.kishorit.org , a new village built on the ruins of a decaying kibbutz, in Israel.
A new model for treating the mentally disabled based on the Israeli commune idea has emerged over the last decade from the ruins of a crumbling kibbutz.
Called Kishorit, the village (in the hills of the Galilee, above Carmiel) in northern Israel has become a utopia for about 150 people with varying degrees of mental handicap, who have all found a home for life.
Some have autism, Asperger’s, or schizophrenia, but as much as they can, they are all steering their own careers, social time, family life, and destiny. They don’t focus on what disability they have, but on what they can do."
"A dog kennel at Kishorit produces prize winning dogs and also provides animal therapy to the residents and day patients...Members run and operate a TV station, and create films, they've built the largest organic goat farm in Israel, possibly the entire Middle East; they plant, tend to, and eat food from their organic garden, and are developing lines of toys, which last year were sold to Baby Gap...Tipper Gore, the wife of Al Gore, came to Israel last summer with her husband, and she made a point to stop in at Kishorit, just miles from the Lebanese border. As a clinical psychologist Gore was impressed by what she saw: 'This is a good model for people to know about so they can make it in other countries. In the United States, we'd love to have places like this,' she said."

"Christian nonprofit organization in SW Baltimore...operates a 2 acre organic urban farm...
a 100% volunteer managed and operated nonprofit...grow chemical-free produce that is retailed at local farmers’ markets and restaurants to provide income to support the work of the organization, and tithe 20% of the produce to local shelters and families in nutritional poverty...farm includes 2 hoop houses, a large berry orchard, small fruit tree orchard, chickens, ducks, and bee-keeping. In 2011 we will be initiating our 'Faith Markets' program which establishes a CSA model with inner-city churches to help penetrate urban neighborhoods with high-quality fresh produce."

Farmers Find Organic Arsenal to Wage War on Pests - http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/30/science/30farm.html "Natural enemies are key to the organic approach...The treatment of choice for commercial organic lettuce is to plant an ornamental flower called alyssum among lettuce beds, taking up 5-10% of the total field. Hoverflies live in the alyssum and need a source of aphids to feed their young, so they lay their eggs in the lettuce. When they hatch, the larvae start preying on the aphids.  ]If you were an aphid on a head of lettuce, a hoverfly larva would be a nightmare,” said Dr. Brennan. “They are voracious eaters of aphids. One larva per plant will control the aphids.' Dr. Brennan'" says.
Lygus "bugs like alfalfa better than strawberries, so some farmers plant one bed of alfalfa for every 50 rows of berries. As the lygus bugs crowd into the green growth, a giant tractor-mounted vacuum cleaner comes by and sucks them up."
"Not all predators are other bugs. Rachael Long has studied bats and their role in pest management in the Central Valley of California for 15 years. Pear, walnut and apple orchardists were fighting the codling moth. By studying DNA in the undigested parts of bat waste, she found they did eat the moths and other insects, equal to their body weight each night."

The herbicide glyphosate, "Introduced by Monsanto in the early 1970s under the trade name Roundup (and used primarily back then as a weed killer), glyphosate is now used throughout the world on wheat and soy crops and since
2007 it has been the most widely used herbicide in the U.S.—and the growing target of research linking it to a variety of illnesses...Diseases ranging from autism, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes to pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease and—wait for it—the ongoing collapse of bee colonies." -

Mosquitos - https://www.israel21c.org/israeli-students-find-pesticide-free-way-to-kill-mosquitos/ 12/8/2019 - A genetically engineered solution – have the males transfer to the females a specific type of bacteria that poisons mosquito larvae.  This novel solution was found as part of the recent iGEM Competition, an international team competition to promote synthetic biology. BGU’s team, dubbed FlyGEM, found that previous BGU research had discovered bacteria in the mosquito’s gut called BTI. When activated, BTI produces a poison that only kills mosquito larvae. FlyGEM tweaked the male mosquito’s gut microbiome to express BTI and then sent it off to find and mate with females. The females transfer the bacteria on the eggs, and when the larvae are born, most of them die. The remaining larvae eat the dead ones, and then die themselves.  Since the poison comes from the mosquito’s own gut and is only lethal to other mosquitos, the students feel they have discovered a delivery mechanism that far surpasses pesticides.

Neonicotinoids -
Introduced in the mid-1990s, synthetic neonicotinoids share the chemical structure of nicotine and attack the central nervous system of insects. Intended to replace older, more harmful pesticides, they are now the most widely used to treat flowering crops, such as fruit trees, beets and vineyards.  Scientific studies have shown that neo-nicotinoids cut bees’ sperm count & scramble their memory & homing skills.
Fresh research out this week even suggests the bees can develop a dangerous addiction to the insecticides, much like smokers for nicotine…An upcoming French food safety bill, if adopted, will widen the ban to all chemical substances that act in the same way.  The United Nations warned last year that 40% of invertebrate pollinators -
particularly bees and butterflies - risk global extinction…
By enforcing the blanket ban, France is going further than the European Union,
which voted to outlaw the use of 3 neonicotinoids - clothianidin, imidacloprid & thiamethoxam - in crop fields starting on December 19, 2018.  France has banned these 3, along with thiacloprid and acetamiprid, not only outdoors but in greenhouses too.
(Consider that all synthetics both pesticides + drugs, seem to have severe adverse effects.)
