Justin has encouraged Pete to do some short videos of some of the plants he recommends for Florida gardens. Here are the first ones.  Looking good Pete , don't worry they will get better with practice !

Arrgh! I cant figure out how to make the quote thingy to work where you get the quote that you want  and then respond to it but i was trying to respond to the moringa nutritional facts. Is it really that nutritious? Jack spirko says its really not true and we shouldnt believe the hype that surrounds it. Where is the evidence for all this nutrition?

Living in Florida, I appreciate the videos Pete is doing and have a lot of new plants I want to try now!

I met Pete over a year ago on a tour of his demonstration garden, which was a very educational experience. Even now as I'm starting to move out of Florida looking back at his methods (business as much as ecological) still does me good; his videos we're worth watching from the beginning but they have come a LONG way in such a short time.
I feel like in that year the entire community has exploded really, especially in Florida.

Give it a smell, you'll find out. The "fishy" smell that highly nutritious plants have gives it away.
Also I have seen the effects firsthand many times, it changes people's lives.
