Our first dedicated Food Forest is in Magnolia Texas and services the Montgomery County Meals on Wheels and the Montgomery County Fire Departments. The forest is still growing and is expected to produce enough food to be able to support more recipients of it's harvest in the future.
The Forest has over 30 kinds of foods and we will be adding many, many more! What we currently have in the ground:
Avacado, Apple, Apricot, Blackberry, cherry, Fig, Jujube, Hibiscus, Moringa, Mulberry, Olive, Orange, Peach, Pear, Plum, Pineapple, Passion Fruit, Banana, Arabica Coffee Bean, Mexican Watermelon, Garlic, Comfrey, Peas, Miracle Fruit, grape, lemon, lemongrass, pomegranate, Jack Fruit, Katuk, Arugala, Mulberry, cilantro.
We have an "outhouse" in the food forest for guests and volunteers, as well as an area to clean up. We will also be decorating the forest further with "Angel houses", signage, and seating areas, so if you would like to help out with the Food Forest, let us know and come on by!
In our Grow Food Everywhere effort we are planting our first food trees at the Montgomery County Fire Departments this spring of 2019. This project, like the Food Forest, has been in the works for some time and we have been growing some of their trees here to get them bigger and stronger before planting but unfortunately for their trees, we took on a stray rescue dog for about a month this winter and she ate them all! I can't blame the dog, she ate the Moringa and Katuk, two very tasty and nutritious trees, but she ate them completely down to just a few inches tall so we are having to start all over again with getting them a little bigger before we install them at the Fire Departments. We do still have the Fruit cocktail trees that will be going in though, and they are excellent trees. Each one grows three separate fruits; we were supposed to get the ones that grew four separate fruits, but that's not what came in on the delivery, so we are rollin' with what we got. We also have 5 fruit Apple trees going into the Fire Departments this spring. These trees put off 5 different varieties of Apple. Next year we will be planting in more public places and placing many more trees and edible plants at the locations we already have secured. Once the Fire Departments are all done, we will be going after other public places like the Libraries and Courthouses.
We have secured a 40 acre tract of land in the Arizona Desert that we intend to green into a Food Forest as soon as we find the time and volunteers to get it moving along.
We have a YouTube Channel and a Video Library where we disseminate our messages and teaching Series' like God's Medicine, which teaches about health and using God's Natural Medicines to heal body, mind, and spirit. We have a full professional video studio to produce other videos in the future and are currently looking for a volunteer technician to help in those efforts so if anyone knows, understands, or can learn the NewTek systems equipment, contact us to volunteer. We will be educating on a wide variety of subjects to help people navigate through the world we find ourselves in today.
Although we have not been able to publish in some time now, we still have, and will begin publishing again on, our site RealGoodNews.com. Real Good News is just what the world needs today and features ONLY Real Good News. The site features all the same catagories of any news site, but also adds in some humor and even some weird stuff just for fun. It's a beautiful effort which we hope to be able to start publishing again soon. Anyone who thinks they can write these type of Real Good News stories should contact us to get published. And if you can find stories, let us know and we will be happy to welcome you to our team.
We will be holding live YouTube events where we will hold raffles to raise funds for our projects. We have some AMAZING things to raffle at AMAZING ticket prices, so be sure to join us for those! You will NOT want to miss it!
