Food Rising grow system donation video launched: Help us awaken children to the joy of growing their own food

Food Rising

(NaturalNews) We've just launched a video animation describing the Food Rising donation fundraising effort which aims to provide 250 non-electric grow systems to schools across America.

So far, we have secured funding for over 170 grow systems, and we have confirmed donation requests from over 70 schools, churches and community centers. New donation requests are arriving each day!

Shipment of these systems begins March 2nd, and the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center ships them out for free to donation recipients.

The DIY videos showing you how to build your own system are launching on February 24th, less than 10 days away!

The downloadable 3D parts will be also be posted on FoodRising.org on February 24th, allowing you to download the key parts of the system and print them yourself for free.

Which 3D printers and filaments to use

I will be posting more detailed reviews of which 3D printers appear to be capable of printing these parts, but so far ALL 3D printers I've tried are working as long as you do two things: 1) Print with t-glase filament. 2) Use a nozzle diameter of 0.5mm or larger. The 0.4mm nozzles are too small for reliable t-glase flow, and you will get filament feed problems if you try to squish t-glase through 0.4mm nozzles.

In our Texas-based 3D print farm, we have FlashForge, Ultimaker 2 and Type A Machines printers churning out production parts for the Food Rising donations. All of them are working. Some of them work better than others, and some are far easier to maintain than others. But they are all working.

I still have not received my Lulzbot Mini, so that's the main 3D printer still missing from this list, and I hope to assess it soon.

Here's a photo of my Type A Machines Series 1 3D printer with a 20-lb. production spool of t-glase clear filament on top. Yes, I built the simple PVC support frame specifically for this purpose:

And here's a photo of the Ultimaker 2, churning out parts for the upcoming donations:

The Consumer Wellness Center is a 501(c)3 public charity in good standing as verified by the IRS. I am the volunteer executive director of the CWC and earn no salary whatsoever (100% non-paid leadership position). Unlike most other "wealthy non-profits" like the American Cancer Society, the CWC spends ZERO money on salaries and directs 100% of all donations to its programs.

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.
