this plant your dream blog will have my ideas and the content
for the grow a healthier pizza workshop
things i want to teach in grow a healthy pizza workshop:
the workshop--"grow a healthier pizza!" includes quotes about the origins of the fda and dr. harvey wiley's pure food law of 1906. the pure food law was intended to keep adulterants out of foods, but was blocked by commercial interests that today are being called to work with us.
we will look at the pioneer inspirations of alfred w. mccann, "the science of eating" (1918/1919) who said we can no longer ignore the true needs of our children. we said the work needed to happen in our schools. we will clarify what santa rosa's own luther burbank intended in his book "the training of the human plant (1906)" and how he used classical plant breeding--in harmony with natural evolution to bring the best out of people and plants. his techniques of honoring nature and children had little to do with making war on nature; that, my friend, is what gmos in plants and in our food are all about. burbank points out that kids need rocks to roll, huckleberries, and a natural environment or they have missed the best part of their education.
now is the time to get our beat back with nature. now is the time to transform our eating habits to regenerate america. now is the time to grow a healthier pizza!

There are those who look at things
the way they are, and ask why...
I dream of things that never were,
and ask why not?”

Today is May 4, 2012
The 5th Annual Cultivating Food Justice Integration Event is Tomorrow! I will be shaking the Money Tree today to raise funds to advance various Beetkeeper/Enchanted Garden Club Projects that are proposed and detailed on this Plant Your Dream Blog. Most of these projects dovetail into the goal of helping to win the California Label GMOs Ballot Initiative. I am submitting today my proposal to teach a workshop at The National Heirloom Exposition in Santa Rosa, CA. The proposal basics are in this Plant Your Dream blog.
Today I will move toward completing this blog. Today I will begin sending links to my honored sponsors. Today I will go to help Heather Weightman, prepping food for tomorrow's Potluck at school in San Diego that needs an infusion of support. Heather has been given more than 10 lbs of Kamut Khorasan Wheat to create food for the potluck menu. Today, Nadine, my assistant at home, will be adding Barry Logan's sourdough starter to experiment with making her first mini pizzas in our kitchen. The Kamut Khorasan wheat she will be using was ground from whole Kamut Kernals April 25, 2012 by more than 15 Hami High School Students at the highly successful Medical Fair my niece Eva Becker, science teacher coordinated at the school. I am known as Uncle Leslie at Hami High after numbers of classroom teaching experiences and helping to inspire the Hami Garden that is now flourishing. On April 25, I made friends with cafeteria staff, and advanced friendships with admin and faculty, and Chef LaRue Palmer who wants to adopt Hami High for the Chef Move into Schools Program. Yesterday, I was at the San Diego Registrar of Voters where turned in 275,000 signatures to get on the ballot. I brought plants and gave suggestions for the backdrop.

M please get this to G,
I need a showing of financial support from my friends and allies now. I am scheduling a trip to the National Heirloom Expo September 11, 12, 13, 2012. I see this event as crucial step for winning the California Ballot Initiative. The vote in California for Label GMOs comes close to two months after the Expo. I want to travel up the coast talking to people about GMOs for ten days before the Expo. I have other projects that need your help now, including a pilot project in a science classroom where my niece Eva Becker has opened the door to introduce her high school youth to organic foods, and learn all sides of the Label GMOs issue. At home, I have the threat of Roundup Herbicide right outside my window on the edge here of the Arosa Canyon Rim. I am at an impasse with one neighbor, and a projects needed now to raise funds to pay two veterans who are trained in farming. Among my neighbors, in San Diego County, and across California, we need to touch the lives of many people who have not yet heard of GMOs. I am taking this on on the Plant Your Dream Blog and through my networking.

ABOUT WHEAT GROWING
This talks about why older varieties, Turkish, with a lot of gene material, are preferred. GMOs stock has less Gene Diversity.
Varieties better suited to warmer average temperatures may not be able to handle a sudden freeze, for example. "The dustbowl temperatures were average, but it was the extremes that got you," he added.
Baenziger's second concern is for agriculture in other parts of the world as the climate changes. "I'm optimistic about wheat production in the U.S.," he said. " I'm far less optimistic about what it means when it gets hotter and drier in sub-Saharan Africa."
Also, he adds, it is important to continue to maintain collections of seeds and other plant materials that provide diverse genetic material to start from for breeding desirable traits. "We've got to make sure we have the resources available," he said.

Bob Quinn: A History of Kamut Growing
Kamut International’s mission “to promote organic agriculture and support organic farmers” is more than just some nice words. At the beginning of every season the company sets the price for KAMUT® brand grain, so their partner farmers and manufacturers know exactly what they can expect for the crop for the entire year.
“Our goal is to support sustainable organic agriculture and by setting a fair and stable price so we all know what to expect,” Quinn says, “Our price is normally well above the normal fluctuations that occur in the wheat market throughout the year.
The vision that Bob Quinn had for the company from the very beginning was based on developing good, solid partnerships throughout the whole process of bringing KAMUT® brand wheat to market. By working with people and letting them do what they do best Kamut International has created a model of cooperation and shared success. Our goal is to work together to solve problems when there are challenges and to all enjoy the benefits of success when things go well. From farmers, importers, distributors, millers, manufacturers and bakers, the KAMUT® brand is a collective effort of dedicated individuals and companies looking to improve the quality of the foods we eat – one grain at a time.
About KAMUT® Brand Khorasan Wheat
The mission of Kamut International is to promote organic agriculture and support organic farmers, to increase diversity of crops and diets, and to protect the heritage of a high quality, delicious ancient grain for the benefit of this and future generations. KAMUT® is a trademark of Kamut International which stands for guaranteed standards that are verified by tests from every field.
