Page in Progress!
You are here because you are wanting to support Plant-Smart Living or, at least, are curious about how to do so.
Like a real plant, Plant-Smart Living itself needs a combination of essential elements to help it grow to become everything it was destined to be:
- Nutrient-rich soil
- A little TLC (tender loving care)
But first, before we talk about the different ways in which you can personally support Plant-Smart Living, let me first talk to you about the PSL story, my mission and my vision for its future.
In early July 2015, after heightened pressure from my family and friends to begin recording videos of my garden, which I have been growing and expanding upon for 25+ years, I finally caved in and recorded my very first YouTube video - a 23 minute tour of my organic vegetable garden.
Since that time, several people have contacted me who were wanting to support my ongoing efforts to spread the plant-based message.
This page goes way beyond just ‘support’ though.
It is really about so much more.
As I continued to record my YouTube videos, over time I found that there were an increasing amount of people contacting me who were wanting to:
- Meet Me
- Shadow Me
- Visit My Organic Garden
- Experience, in person, what they have experienced in my YouTube videos
They had wanted a more ‘personal’ experience.
They had wanted to be more involved in the ‘process’.
They had really wanted to be involved, somehow, in what I was building and creating with Plant-Smart Living.
They had wanted to feel a part of something that was much greater than you or me.
It quickly became clear that they believed wholeheartedly in what I was doing, the uniqueness of it, as well as, the message I was working tirelessly to spread.
Fortunately, you discovered Plant-Smart Living at the perfect time!
It is still very young.
It is still very much in its infancy.
But, I could REALLY use your support to help turn it into everything I envision it becoming.
I have come to the conclusion that Plant-Smart Living is bigger than myself – way bigger…
With that in mind, I’ve turned to the Plant-Smart Living Community to help drive it forward.
In even the smallest decisions, from the earliest days of Plant-Smart Living, I have involved the community.
They are truly some of the greatest people on Earth.
Through the community’s feedback, they (and their awesome feedback) have helped me to:
Create a stunning and powerful logo crafted with the purpose of representing everything Plant-Smart Living IS, and everything I hope for it to become in the future.
Pick a pressure cooker, in order to be used in my YouTube videos, as well as for experimentation as we have created and shared with the community many great whole-food plant-based recipes.
Construct a content posting schedule (for Facebook posts and YouTube videos), in order to establish consistency in the content we deliver, as well as, predictability.
Decide upon a new, upgraded, camera, in order to deliver a much better user video viewing experience, across all the many different types of YouTube videos that I produce.
Most importantly, they have helped me to stay encouraged, despite personal attacks by those who would love nothing more than to see Plant-Smart Living fail, and it's message fall to the wayside.
Based on those past experiences, it seemed to be intuitive that Plant-Smart Living–and everything it stands for–would succeed, or fail, on the back of the community.
It isn’t about ME.
It is about the MESSAGE.
If you feel that you have personally benefited from anything here at Plant-Smart Living–recipes, videos, blog posts, resources, etc–it would be an absolute honor to have you join the thousands of others who have supported me at different levels…and consider supporting me in one or more of the following ways below!
