The great beauty and grace of everyday events at Organic Gardens Retreat nourishes oneís spirit, oneís soul. The humming birds drink from the trumpet shaped flowers of Texas Hummingbird Sage, the red tailed hawk and her partner ride the thermals above; and the mama duck leads her six goslings through the rapids of the mountain stream. Sit on the deck, contemplate the amazing shades of green of the native trees and the lushness of the organic gardens, watch the mountains change colors at sunset and anticipate the full brilliance of the night stars, for there is no ambient light here.

As artists and Activists make incessant demands upon themselves and on those with whom they work. The stress that accumulates in the body as a result may be addressed with the healing of Certified practitioners of massage, cranial sacral, yoga and acupuncture that are available at the Retreat. A redwood soaking hot tub nestled among native oaks facilitates the healing.

Four hours from Los Angles and four hours from the Bay Area, the Retreat is located on five acres at 1,000 feet in the Sierra Nevadas, five minutes from entrance to Sequoia National Park where the oldest trees on the planet live. In addition to the spirit and bodywork at the Retreat, you may want to talk with, caress these lovely and knowledgeable trees and perhaps take walks or hikes in their presence. Please see: www.organicgardens-sequoia.com.

The tops of the Giant Sequoia and snowcap Sierras are visible from the decks surrounding three sides of the main building. Middle fork of the Kaweah River is below. The Accommodations at the Retreat include a cottage with its efficiency kitchen and redwood deck and the Garden Room overlooking the back raised beds. Each room benefits from the soothing breeze during the day and the cool downdraft from the Sequoias at night. Each is tiled with private bath and entrance and there is a fully equipped kitchen for your use. A Clothing Optional choice is available. And, if you must, there is computer access!

Organic Gardens as a Retreat is new. For the past 10 years it has been a bed and breakfast providing organic, vegetarian, vegan and food for special diets. Guests visited from all parts of the world and most lived very gently upon the planet. The owner continues to work as a documentary photographer and an historian. Increasingly she spends most of her daytime in the Central Valley working with migrant women to develop their photographic and organizational skills. The journey of transforming silence into language, action and wholeness continues.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
