3 Phases of Our Campaign or the "Virtual Organic Garden Clubs" Movement"
This campaign or new movement was created on June 15, 2017 to flood black communities with ideas on how we can gain access to good, clean, organic foods as quick as possible. There will be three (3) phases of this campaign/movement, as we start training by videos, teleconference calls, seminars, workshops, webinars, etc. so go back and study each phase, so you will be ready to save your own family and community.
Different phases of our campaign:
First phase of our campaign was to release the campaign “www.VirtualOrganicGardenClubs.com” campaign/movement and new book “Overcoming Food Deserts in Your Community: How To Start A Home, School, or Community Garden, Food Co-ops or Food Coalition” – available as an e-book and paperback book. The book will give everyone who only have a general knowledge of growing foods how to get started in their own communities. Again the book will go hand-in-hand with “VirtualOrganicGardenClubs.com” and we ask that those starting out growing foods for the first time to view CathyHarrisGardenClub.com for tips and ideas. We already launched Phase 1 -(click here).
Second phase is to announce the merger of the “VirtualOrganicGardenClubs.com” and black farmers (including “The New Black Farmers”) along with the “Beauty and Barber Shop Initiatives” and start monthly teleconference calls (Masterminds, Think Tanks, Classrooms) starting on July 18, 2017, 7:00-8:30 p.m. (CST) (3rd Tuesdays of each month). During this phase we ask that you approach local beauty and barber shops and other storefront businesses and ask them to get involved with this initiative. You can just send them to the website at VirtualOrganicGardenClubs.com for more information. We will launch this phase on June 29, 2017 with a press release.
Third phase will include putting together a list of all organizations, businesses and groups that everyone need to join ASAP in order to receive training. We will start a massive ‘train the trainer” program. Remember that most groups will not understand how businesses work, so therefore, there will need to be a mass educational campaign by business groups especially business coaches, consultants, mentors, tutors, etc. Our ultimate goals are to set up business incubators and black business districts in every city. In order to do this business groups will need to work with proactive and progressive legislators, investors, etc. to secure buildings in their communities for business incubators, farmer’s markets, food co-ops, etc. We also need to start campaigns to VOTE OUT unresponsive legislators at the end of their terms from the ground up. We will launch this phase in July 2017 with a press release.

Cathy Harris Releases New Book "Overcoming Food Deserts in Your Community: How To Start A Home, School, or Community Garden, Food Co-op or Food Coalition"and New Food Project "Virtual Organic Garden Clubs"
Cathy Harris, Austin business owner and National Non-GMO Health and Wellness Expert is releasing a new book entitled "Overcoming Food Deserts in Your Community: How To Start A Home, School or Community Garden, Food Co-op or Food Coalition" along with a new food project Virtual Organic Garden Clubs, which is also on facebook.com.
The book release will go hand in hand with the virtual food project to help families understand what they need to do to start gaining access to good, clean, organic foods. We will teach families how to grow foods at homes, schools or community gardens, food co-ops or food coalitions to sell to families in GOOD FOOD BOXES, grocery stores, farmer's markets, restaurants, catering companies, roadside stands, etc.
Everyone is urged to use meetup.com to set up local food discussion meetings in their communities, however, there will be monthly "Virtual Organic Gardening Clubs" meetings on third Tuesdays of each month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. (CST) by phone at www.FREEconferencecall.com, to discuss some of the issues people are having with growing their own foods.
Since most foods today or 90% that are processed (or have been altered), contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), which have no nutritional value, it should be everyone's goal to grow their own foods to make sure foods are safe to eat; to fight diseases and to cut down on grocery bills.
Communities and families will also have the chance to set up job's programs and there will be many business opportunities around growing foods so it will be important to understand how business works so read Cathy Harris' business books "The New CEO: 185 Easy-To-Set Up Businesses for Youth and Adult Entrepreneurs" and "How To Take Control of Your Own Life: A Self-Help Guide to Starting Your Own Business" (Series 2). All books are available as e-books and paperback books at http://www.AngelsPress.com.

PREFACE - A NOTE TO THE READER
This book not only lays out several action plans to gain access to good, clean, organic foods, but it will help all family members gain access to job and business opportunities, while they eliminate food deserts in their communities.
Face it we will never get back to totally living off the land like our ancestors did, but families must come together today for the sake of future generations. We need to seriously look at solutions because this is the first generation that will not outlive their parents. However, there are economically-empowered ways we can feed, clothe and shelter our own families.
Food is not always only about the most expedient way to suppress hunger. Many community organizations have long understood this and believe that food access and quality is tied to both racial and economic justice.
Over the past few years we have heard quite a bit about food deserts, or high poverty areas where a lack of grocery stores makes it difficult for residents to purchase fresh food. However, we know far less about the food realities of people who live near grocery stores where fresh food is sold, but because of their limited incomes, they simply cannot afford it.
Affordable healthy food is an issue of both equity and justice that disproportionally affects working-class and poor people of color in cities and rural areas. Reducing the economic necessity for some to rely so heavily on food that is unhealthy, is not only a tool for fighting health concerns, there are other benefits too.
Time and time again it shows when many schools team up with healthy venues and swap out soda machines and offer instead -- juices, water and low-sugar energy drinks and also prepared meals entirely free of additives and chemicals, but with abundant amounts of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole-grain breads, this have led to reduced behavioral problems, higher grades, lower expulsion rates, decreases in the use of ADD prescription drugs, and teachers are reporting that the students were more attentive and could concentrate for longer periods of time.
Gaining access to clean, sustainability, grown food is a basic human right so we need venues to offer education to inspire family members to live healthy lives, by offering hands-on education in urban farming, sustainability, and nutrition and this is what this book will do.
