How to grow your own
Organic yields rival conventional yields for some crops
The basic theory of the new Organic Tank System is that the nutritional value of a food, including its content of vitamins and minerals, depends on the mineral content of the soil, and on a sufficient supply of moisture by means of which soil minerals are conveyed to the roots of plants.

Morningland Dairy, Mountain View, MO, is under orders by the FDA and the Milk Board to destroy 50,000 lbs of cheese that has never been tested for pathogens. Since they can?t sell it, friends and supporters are rallying to sponsor this cheese, so the family won?t lose their farm. That is why it is called an uncheese party. By sponsoring a cheese you are making a non-tax deductible gift of love, aid and comfort to a farm in distress.
Morningland Dairy is just the latest attempt by the FDA to fulfill the Healthy People 2020 objective to kill raw dairy. Morningland is owned by Joseph and Denise Dixon, who operate the cheese plant and make raw cheese from cows kept right on the property and managed by one of their eldest daughters. They have 12 children, 4 of who still live at home, and they have been actively engaged in real food for three decades. They were caught up in the Rawesome Raid dragnet and many believe the questionable California Dept of Food and Agriculture tests on their cheese are the legal justification for the multi-agency guns drawn raid at Rawesome.
FDA is trying very hard to kill our nation?s local food supply. This is the time for us, the people who grow wholesome food, and consumers of wholesome food, to stand up and say "Enough!". By sponsoring a block of cheese you will be contributing to the Dixon?s potential legal expenses.
Our goal is to raise $250,000.00, the value of the cheese that is under embargo.
P.S. Raw milk from healthy cows and raw milk consumption have existed for many millenia in human culture and has always been associated with maintaining good health. Chronic ailments and Sickness are only associated with corporate raised cows and pasteurized milk.
ORGANIC TANK GARDENING----A SOLUTION TO THE SPRAYING PROBLEM
(You can click on any of the ingredients listed for the mineralized soil to see options for purchasing over the web.)
In the last chapter, we discussed several ways to solve the spray poison problem, and mentioned that one way out of the dilemma is to grow one`s own foods. We shall now describe a very practical method by which this can be done-even by city dwellers who have no back yard or garden space, but who have a roof.* The idea was acquired while traveling a certain part of Ecuador where there was no rainfall, and where it was impossible to irrigate from wells. People there grew their fresh greens in long tanks which they filled with rich soil and kept moist. In this way they always had a supply of fresh lettuce and other greens.
* I've designed an inexpensive tank that`s easy to assemble. It has room for seven square feet of vegetables, wheat grass, or just about anything you wish to place on your table for dinner. It`s easy to maintain and fun to watch your plants grow quickly, knowing they`re rich in all the nutrients your body normally requires. In my soil I use minerals, but no chemicals of any kind. I've
yet to see any insects looking for a handout. These little buggers normally feed on plants with few nutrients grown in dead soil. This is like the bugs in your body, which do their best to get rid of your waste. Both are doing what they were designed to do.
1- 4x8' new or used �" or �" plywood sheet.
3 straight 2"x2"x8' pine or other inexpensive wood boards.
1 lb. 1 5/8" plaster board screws.
1 pt. wood glue.
128 sq. in. fiberglass screen wire.
1 box thumb tacks.
16"x7' waxed butcher paper.
1- 5 gallon bucket.
Cut 1x4' off the plywood sheet and set aside.
Mark lengthwise 4- 1x3' sections across the plywood sheet.
Cut these sections and label them #1, #2, #3, #4.
Cut 1' off of 2 of the 2"x2"x8' sticks.
Place them under plywood #2, carefully lining them up flush with the
plywood`s outer edge.
In plywood #3, drill 2- 1" holes, 1 1/2" from one end and 4" from the side edges.
Drill 3 more holes on each side, 4" from the edges, evenly spaced to leave 8" at the other end (far end).
With 2x2"s face up, line #2 with waxed butcher paper.
Place #3 on top of #2 and screw the plywood to the 2x2"s every 4". Make sure the screws are sunk into the plywood, but the screw heads do not extend above the board, and be careful not to twist the screw heads off when driving them in. You've just sandwiched the 2x2`s creating a false bottom.
Screw #1 and #4 to the 2x2s to form an open box without ends. Place screws every 4.
Cover the entire open box end with the holes 8 in (far end) by lining up one end of the 1'x4' piece of plywood.
Mark the 1'x4' board and cut, then tack it to end of box with 4 screws in each corner.
At the other end, mark the remaining plywood to leave a 2"x8" opening for drainage at the bottom of the box. You'll see the butcher paper and into the false bottom. Tack this end.
Cut the last 2"x2"x8' stick into 5- 9" lengths and 2- 12" lengths.
With screws 3" apart, secure 4 lengths vertically in the box corners, screwing from the outside through the plywood.
With 3 screws, secure the fifth piece across the bottom at the completely enclosed end (far end), screwing from the outside. The drain end will have no cross piece.
Run a bead of wood glue around the inner bottom edge sealing any cracks.
Let glue dry and reapply where cracks still exist. You may use sawdust to fill any large cracks and then glue over it, rubbing glue into cracks. Cut fiberglass screen into 4 squares and thumbtack over drain holes.
Place the2- 2"x2"x12" pieces, 28" from each end, across the top. They will hold the sides together at the top. Use 2 screws to secure each end of each piece (8 screws).
Place your tank box on anything substantial that will hold it 22" above the surface you desire to use. This will allow room to place a five-gallon bucket at a slightly tilted, lower end where the drain outlet is (2x8" space) to catch the water that flows through the soil. You reuse the water by pouring it back over the soil in the box.
(Were those instructions confusing? Don't worry. This is only a guideline. All you are really doing is building a large planter box with a sleuce and tilting it slightly towards your designated drain hole to allow drainage of your precious mineral water into containers for recycling. The garden box will eventually need more water due to evaporation (the minerals don't evaporate, chem wiz). If you are especially handy, you can also build in a small water pump that constantly irrigates your garden box. The main component of this garden box is the soil mixture.)
