    Spin Off Idea From Back To Eden Garden

    After reading it on TB I'm doing the back to Eden garden. I've gotten all of the old grass encrusted raised beds broken down, the paper is spread and chips are on top. I have one really nice pepper plant that I want to try and save through winter. It has two tomato cages on top of it, so I...

    Do you have Back To Eden Garden disorder?

    If you do, it causes you to go into your neighbor's yard (with permission) and gather up all of the downed branches so that you can chip them up and put them on your garden and around trees. www.backtoedenfilm.com

    Paul Gautschi (Back to Eden) talks about chickens and genetically modified crops

    This is a good interview. I think he is one of us. He says that the widespread use of genetically modified crops and resulting illness in people is being done on purpose. He does not give his chicken any chicken feed because it has GMO corn in it. Instead he plants extra stuff in his garden to...
