Komo mai (welcome) & aloha!

This website is a My own dialog on a progressive course of modernday homesteading and raising survival foods in the tropics. We have 1 acre and we are to get the maximum utilization of every inch of space out of it….Aloha!

The Right Attitude and the right know how!

Aquaponic Success Story Here in Hawaii

40 tons of Organic food on an acre and a half!

Hello Hawaii Did you know ..

More than 85% of Hawai’i’s food is imported and distributed by retail outlets such as supermarkets, buying warehouses, and health food stores such as this one in Honolulu. Retail outlets are not in the business of food security and it is well beyond their capacity to provide food during economic and environmental disasters.

WHY GROW FOOD!?  THIS IS WHY! Poisoning at a Mass Level GMO in your local Safeway store!!! don’t ask me why ask David Rockefeller! He own monsanto! and Ask why they poisoning us?!

Genetically Modified Organisms were first introduced into our food supply in the 1980’s. They appeared without consumers knowing what was happening…until recently. Currently there is a GMO awakening circulating through the social media. GMO crops look, smell, and taste like normal food but aren’t, so how can we protect ourselves? A small Amount of Dioxin in your blood Distroys your Kidney cells and a French Study confirms Rats WILL get Cancer from GMO’s and its only a matter of time before this epedemic will be before you!
A GMO By Many Names Is The Same:
GMOs are referred to by several acronyms and proper names: Genetically Modified Organism, GMO, Genetically Modified, GM, Transgenic, Transgene, and Bt (which is the name for a bacterium used during the genetic modification process). Plant seeds are often referred to as Bt or Round Up Ready, implying they are ‘safe’ to spray with the glyphosate herbicide called Round Up, which is manufactured by Monsanto.
There are hundreds of crops being experimented with using bacteria, viruses, antibiotics, plant, animal, and insect DNA and this is cause for alarm. Although there is much experimentation, not all of these science projects make it to the grocery shelves. Some that have made it to the shelves have been rejected. Years ago, the DNA from cold water fish was added to a tomato seed, producing a GM tomato plant that was cold-hearty. This failed in the market place because consumers didn’t like the flavor. Crossing a fish gene with a vegetable gene is suspect and the side-effects to human health are yet to be determined… And the list goes on!
Current List of GM Foods:
The following Genetically Modified foods are being sold in our stores right now: corn, wheat, soy, canola, Hawaiian papaya, alfalfa, zucchini, and yellow crookneck squash. Buy organic! USDA Certified Organic guidelines (currently) do not allow GM foods to carry an organic label.
Sources of GM Foods in the Food Supply:
GM wheat, corn, and soy show up in most boxed or packaged ‘foods’ and this is what the scary statistics in the social media are pointing to. Wheat, corn, and soy are farmed in massive quantities. These crops are used by manufacturers to make things such as ketchup, vitamin supplements, eco-friendly, non-plastic corn utensils, veggie burgers and other vegan and vegetarian meat-substitutes, tofu, soy milk, corn syrup, energy bars, protein powders, cereals, breads, candies, snack ‘foods’, pastries, food additives, rennet, artificial sweeteners, enzymes, and the list goes on and on!
GM crops are used as feed for livestock and poultry, which translates into meat, eggs, and dairy containing GM constituents. Buy meat, poultry, and dairy from local farmers who you can talk with about what they are feeding their animals. Farm raised fish are also fed genetically modified grains. Get your fish labeled wild-caught and locally sourced if available.
Other sources of GM contamination are dairy products from cows injected with rbGH. This is a Genetically Modified hormone (created by Monsanto) to increase the production of milk. Organic milk does not contain rbGH.
Grass Roots…Taking Action, Get Involved! Grow food NOW!
There are many resources that we can utilize to stay aware and educated of what is actually in the food supply here in the United States. It is important to clarify ‘in the United States” because GM seeds and food are being exported to other countries.
There is now a voluntary Non-GMO seal that companies can receive to distinguish their product from GMO competitors. If you see a product labeled with a Non-GMO seal, support this company by purchasing their product. Getting this seal is a costly process that is not mandatory. Many of these companies are small, independent businesses, which have elected to put their product through this expensive, voluntary testing regime to earn this seal.
Our shopping dollars influence what is being sold in the stores. GMOs are not allowed in USDA Certified Organic Foods. Buy ORGANIC! There is a Non-GMO Shopping Guide which lists companies that guarantee there are no GM ingredients in their food. Download the Non-GMO Shopping Guide online for free (see Resources).
The Institute for Responsible Technology is working diligently with groups such as The Organic Consumers Association and The Center for Food Safety. These organizations are the leaders taking large corporations such as Monsanto to court in a monumental effort to keep GM crops from entering into our food supply. They are working to create a mandatory label on foods that have GM ingredients. Support these organizations and sign up for their email newsletters. The Organic Consumers Association fuels the Millions Against Monsanto Campaign; join this effort on their website. Click here!
Shopping for locally produced items is beneficial for our local economy and gives us a chance to meet the folks involved in growing, raising, packaging, and selling the food we eat. Farmer’s Markets and local food stores that provide locally sourced foods.
Make your own grass roots movement…grow your own! GM seeds do not make it into the home garden. Having your own garden is a wonderful way to keep your green thumb on the pulse of your own food supply and hurry!

What Right Do you have to petition your Government!? Without $40,000 NONE!

Bag that GMO petitioner  and Arrest HER!

Every human’s right to know

Every citizen has a right to know about the  food they are eating. Under current regulations, this right is silenced by laws  that allow corporations like Monsanto to lie about where food comes from and  hide the fact that it is genetically engineered. The quantity and variety of  genetically modified foods hitting store shelves is growing, without proper  human health testing and without proper labeling. How many people would buy a  product if they read that the food was genetically manipulated? More people  would become aware. More people would begin to cry out for real, organic foods  again. The empire of processed, genetically modified foods must be taken down

The Latest! technics in Soil giving up its Secrets!

The Secret of Soil!! BioChar and IMO!! Doubling your Yields!!

What is Biochar?

Biochar is ‘Char’coal produced from wood or plant ‘Bio’mass. This charcoal will absorb nutrients like a sponge, holding them in the soil near the plants for an incredibly long time. We know this from studying the Terra Preta, the deep, dark fertile soils of the Amazon that were made thousands of years ago from biochar.


“Rich in humus, pieces of preColumbian unfired clay pottery, and black carbon, it’s [terra preta is] like a “microbial reef” that promotes and sustains the growth of mycorrhizae and other beneficial microbes and it as been show to retain its fertility for thousands of years.” Magic Soil of the Lost Amazon by Allan Balliett from Acres USA February 2007 Vol. 37, No. 2.


With our Biochar you are getting fertility that is rich and lasts longer than what you would get from adding minerals, manure, or compost to the soil.

This makes inoculated biochar the most sustainable soil amendment.

A Super Mean sized BioChar Kiln:

Vithusa Biochar Kiln
Biochar enthusiasts generally agree that raw
biochar needs to be processed further prior to being added to the garden.
Composting, or soaking with compost tea, is commonly used to charge the pore
volume with beneficial organisms and nutrients. Soaking in a nutrient rich
solution (examples are urine or fish emulsion) prior to composting is accepted

and… the best Biochar Kiln for small farms
