Bamboo Bike Auction

I am auctioning my bamboo bicycle and 100% of the proceeds will be used to buy bikes for children in Orlando who live in low income scenarios!

This is the bike that I cycled across the USA in 2014 on the Goodfluence Tour, doing good deeds across the USA. This is also the bike that was stolen in 2017, that I tracked down, hugged the person who stole it and used the opportunity to start a fundraiser to give bikes to kids in San Diego. The fundraiser raised enough funds to give away 50 bikes!

The Power of the Seed

I may not have a whole lot of money, but I’ve got a whole lot of pumpkins!
I am absolutely enamored by the power of the seed. Allow me to share this experience with you.
In January I had dinner with my friend Terry Meer. He made me pumpkin from his garden. This is not just a typical pumpkin you’d find at the grocery store though. This is the fantastic Seminole Pumpkin. I desperately wanted to grow it myself, so I scooped the seeds out of the three pumpkins we cut open, and I took the seeds home with me. In a few months when the time was right I planted them into my gardens.

My Favorite Moment of Foraging in South Florida

This was my favorite moment of my foraging trip in South Florida.
We spotted a house with two coconut trees absolutely loaded with coconuts. I took an educated guess that they were not harvesting the trees, as a vast majority of trees are never harvested.
So we stopped the car and knocked on the front door. Sure enough I was right.
The trees had hundreds of fallen coconuts around them, likely a few year’s worth. They were very happy for us to harvest the trees, so we got right to it.

Speaking as a Human for Equality

For those of you who know me, the following statement should be obvious. However, many of you who follow me online probably don’t know me that well.
This page is vastly non-political, and I intend to keep it that way. But I need to be completely clear that I do not condone Donald Trump as the president of the United States or as a human being outside of politics. I do not accept his desires for the United States or the world or humanity and I stand strongly opposed to his views, his words, his actions, his very being.

Community Fruit Tree Update

Over the last month, I have helped to plant 100 Community Fruit Trees in Orlando. Much of the food that I personally plant I can expect to share in the bounty in just a few months or less. Fruit trees on the other hand are a long-term investment. Most of them won’t produce fruit this year or next, and some won’t produce fruit for as much as five years.
