Did You Know?

A chlorophyll and Haemoglobin (human blood) are almost identical.
The only actual difference between clorophyll and human blood molecules is one
metallic atom element.
The metallic atom is iron in Haemoglobin, while in Chlorophyll the metallic atom is magnesium.

Since Chlorophyll and Haemoglobin are so much alike in atom structure, Chlorophyll is absorbed quickly into the blood stream.
Chlorophyll as medicine

  • Anemia -Chlorophyll aids in rebuilding the bloodstream.
  • Deodorant – when chlorophyll is taken internally in adequate quantities, it reduces or eliminates offensive body and breath odors.
  • Skin problems – chlorophyll ointments are very beneficial in treating various skin diseases including weeping & dry eczema, insect bites and infections.

Look good, smell good; what more could you ask for ( except for world peace, a winning lottery ticket and immortality)

Renewable Energy - Sun, Wind, Water, Biomass

Renewable Energy designs are the bestsellers in our store. Click on the images to visit our Organic Garden Cafe Shop.

Our “Renewable Energy” designs are inspired by the early days of the alternative energy movement and futuristic graphic design visions of the early 1980’s .

Growing Fish and Greens

At the 1982 US Festival Career & Technology Exposition we set up an Apple II computer and designed the software to manage a tilapia pond utilizing a biological filter which we integrated with a hydroponics system for growing vegetables and mesclun salad greens.

Earth- Renewable Energy

Our successful exhibit further developed into our new creation of a highly efficient,self sustainable, organic fish and vegetable growing system that no longer requires a computer to maintain it’s natural balance. Now, all it takes is a daily check on the chemical balance of the water and the hydrophobic pumping system which is controlled by a common irrigation timer.

A simple, efficient system to grow out your fish, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and mesclun greens.

Our E-Book project, “Growing Fish & Greens” details the technical aspects of our Self-sustainable hydroponics system.

Renewable Energy in the News

U.S. House shifts $16 billion toward renewable energy

“The U.S. House of Representatives on Saturday passed a Democratic rewrite of U.S. energy policy that strips $16 billion in tax incentives away from Big Oil and puts it toward renewable energy sources like wind and solar power.

The House voted 220-190 to add a controversial amendment that would require U.S. utilities to generate 15 percent of their electricity from renewable sources like wind and solar by 2020.

Notably absent from the bill is a hike in automobile fuel efficiency standards, which Pelosi put off until the fall to avoid a bruising fight with fellow Democrats including Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman John Dingell of Michigan, the staunch auto industry ally who says he wants to deal with fuel standards in global warming legislation later this year.

The Senate in June approved a bill that hikes auto fuel standards to 35 miles per gallon by 2020.

The House bill must be reconciled with the Senate version, which is markedly different.

Republicans and oil-state Democrats criticized provisions in the tax portion of the House bill that would repeal reduced tax rates for major integrated oil companies, and drop foreign income tax deductions for companies that produce oil and natural gas overseas.” >> more
