Divine Production

excerpt from the book "Grow Where You Are!" by Eugene Cooke

Grow where you are

  

Urban agriculture offers many possibilities.  We can create edible landscapes, food forests, square foot garden beds, aquaponic systems, bio-dynamic mini-farms and many other production models.  All of these methods utilize water, minerals, Sunlight and life force energy.The resources to create healthy production are accessible in most urban environments.  Notice how each season produces its own abundance.  The leaves of Fall are essential for healthy compost.  The rainwater of Spring can be collected in rain barrels for the dry months.  In late summer we gather the abundant overgrowth from the garden to further stimulate the compost pile with nitrogen-rich green matter. The deep chill of winter assists in breaking up hard soil through the freezing and thawing cycle.

 

Seeds are the new gold.  In this age of GMO and patents, it is vital that we research the impact of what we plant.  Seeds contain two elements: a microscopic plant and a limited food source.  Heirloom seeds have the genetic information from generations on this planet.  This sacred intelligence can literally reprogram our planet and our bodies to a harmonic that is timeless and sustainable.

Okra

Okra

Okra comes from a large vegetable plant thought to be of African origin, and it was brought to the United States three centuries ago by African slaves. The word, derived from the West African nkruma, was in use by the late 1700s. Grown in tropical and warm temperate climates, it is in the same plant family as hibiscus and cotton.

 

Okra are rich in B-complex group of vitamins like niacin, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), thiamin and pantothenic acid. The pods also contain good amounts of vitamin K.  Vitamin K is a co-factor for blood clotting enzymes and is required for strengthening of bones.

 

Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture would like to thank all of our supporters, patrons, donors and customers for their love and support over the years. We are constantly looking for better ways to serve you.
