Gabriel Howearth Botanist, Landscape architect and Seedsman spoke at the Cave Creek Coffee House on Friday December 18, 2009. Gabriel who I met 5 years in La Ribera Mexico visited the Healing the Eye and Wellness Center for alternative treatments to help him regain his strength and functioning after suffering from a stroke after complications after a several fungal infection.
Gabriel’s talk was called “Sustainable Living for our children’s children’s children” Gabriel’s talk was very motivating for everyone that attended his talk. His goal is to make the public aware of sustainable living. This is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual‘s or society‘s use of the Earth‘s natural resource. “Green Living”. Gabriel talk focused on organic gardening, eliminating GMO food, and bringing healthy organic food into your diet to regain your health. I hope to have his talk available on line shortly.

Gabriel has been instrumental in educated me on Organic Gardening. 3 years ago he helped me develop several organic gardens on my property in Phoenix. I enjoy growing all my own organic vegetables and try to supply these fresh wholesome products to patients visiting Phoenix during our 3 day program. There is no better way to regain your health. You are what you eat!

Some of his previous work include research work with Sonic Bloom sound frequencies and music and pyramid enhancement for seeds and plants with documented success written in very popular books: “Secrets of the soil” and “The secret life of Plants” by two famous authors/researchers Peter Tompkins and Christopher Byrd. The results of this research show how certain frequencies and music really works to greatly enhance plant grow production, yield, nutrition, flavor, and quality and germination power of seeds especially enhanced by the combination of the use of Mayan pyramid seed enhancers.
