Overview


"Healing our bodies, returning to natural patterns of sleeping and eating and being in community and with the earth...whatever that looks like for you, may be the first steps towards sustainability and balance.



For me it started with tapping into my own abundant energy field by harvesting greens with my own hands, from local soil and herbs and local seasonal fruit and blending all into a power pack of life and richness. All of this is what we share with community via THE ELECTRIC SMOOTHIE LAB APOTHECARY.



This is an amazing opportunity to make meals for folks using food that would otherwise end up in the dumpster because it was unattractive and therefore unsellable. In America every year, billions of pounds of edible food ends up as waste, even though a quarter of households do not have enough food to make it through to the end of the month.



I see a vision clearly before my eyes: children happy healthy preparing their own green smoothies and enjoying the abundance of the Earth as God intends for us to enjoy."
