Jane Butel - Chile Chili Cooking Jane Butel, the first to write about southwestern cooking, is an internationally recognized authority on the regional cooking of the American Southwest. In the late 1970’s, following a successful career as one of America’s top Consumer Affairs executives, she launched her southwestern writing, teaching, television, consulting, and spice business. Her Southwestern Cooking Schools in New Mexico and Scottsdale, Arizona, have garnered high recognition. Bon Appetit magazine selected it as one of the four best in the world and Gayot.com listed her hotel-based schools as the best in the United States and one of the world’s top ten.
She also conducts tours to Mexico and Spain. Pecos Valley Spice Co., a trusted source for chiles, spices, and other authentic southwestern ingredients, was founded in 1978. She continues to spice up America’s favorite cuisine with recipes from the rich culinary, cultural, and historical heritage of the Southwest. She has written eighteen cookbooks, including Northland’s Real Women Eat Chiles, which was just released on March 24, 2006. Jane Butel’s Chili Madness has been praised as “an elegant celebration” (Travel + Leisure) that “chile lovers will love” (New York Post), it’s the spicy bestseller with over 330,000 copies
in print. “Jane Butel has dedicated herself to prove to the public that chili has a taste all its own. Her credentials are authentic.” (The New York Times) Find classes and more at: www.janebutelcooking.com
The Joy of Belly Dancing for Beauty & Grace Come watch the Nephthys Belly Dance Troupe as they shake their way into your hearts. These women have been perfecting the art of the shimmy just for you. Thrill to the heart pounding rhythms. Be mesmerized by the awe-inspiring isolations. Cheer for eye catching pops and rolls. Enjoy the dancing that has inspired women the world over to join forces in dance. Belly dancing was first introduced to this country at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. The famed dancer, “Little Egypt,” amazed the attendees with her scandalous pelvic and abdominal
movements. Men were transfixed, and women were curious. The dance was threatening to Victorian sensibilities, as the eyes were drawn to her torso. That just intrigued Hollywood all the more. Hollywood latched onto belly dancing, as evinced in many early Hollywood movies such as “The Sheik” and “Salome.” Unfortunately, Belly dancing languished in burlesque halls, seedy restaurants, and nightclubs in subsequent years. By the 1970’s, however, Belly dancing was on an upswing. Teachers began teaching classic Belly dancing
to grateful and happy students. Then, by 1990, belly dancing really took off with the introduction of Tribal Belly dancing. The popularity of Belly dancing comes in waves. We are currently seeing a resurgence of the dance thanks to superstars such as Rachel Brice and Zoe Jakes. Women all over the United States are discovering the beauty and grace of the dance. Come experience the joy of movement for yourself! www.nephthysbellydance.com

The Story of Glass Gem Corn: Beauty, History, and Hope
www.ThatsNatural.info Page 6
Stephen Thomas - Development Assistant Native Seeds/SEARCH If you’ve spent any time online in the last week, you might have noticed a striking photo making its rounds. Feast your eyes on Glass Gem corn: a stunning, multi-colored heirloom that has taken Facebook and the blogosphere by storm. With its opalescent kernels glimmering like rare jewels, it’s easy to see what the buzz is about. This is some truly mind-blowing maize. For the staff here at Native Seeds/SEARCH, the viral explosion of interest in Glass Gem has been thrilling—but not surprising. As the proud stewards of this variety (along with the bioregional seed company, Seeds Trust) we are lucky enough to have grown and admired this extraordinary corn ourselves. Rest assured, this is no Photoshop sham. It is truly as stunning held in your your hand as it is on your computer screen. When you peel back the husk from a freshly harvested ear to reveal the rainbow of colors inside, it’s like unwrapping a magical present. And this is a gift that is meant to be shared far and wide. Like many heirloom treasures, Glass Gem corn has a name, a place, and a story. Its origin traces back to Carl Barnes, a part-Cherokee farmer living in Oklahoma. Barnes had an uncanny knack for corn breeding. More specifically, he excelled at selecting and saving seed from those cobs that exhibited vivid, translucent colors. Exactly how long Barnes worked on Glass Gem—how many successive seasons he carefully chose, saved, and replanted these special seeds—is unknown. But after many years, his painstaking efforts created a wondrous corn cultivar that has now captivated thousands of people around the world. Approaching the end of his life, Barnes bestowed his precious seed collection to Greg Schoen, his corn-breeding protégé. The weighty responsibility of protecting these seeds was not lost on Schoen. While in the process of moving in 2010, he sought out a place to store a sampling of the collection to ensure its safekeeping. Schoen passed on several unique corn varieties to fellow seedsman Bill McDorman, who was owner at the time of Seeds Trust, a small family seed company then located in central Arizona. (Today, Bill McDorman is Executive Director of Native Seeds/SEARCH.) Curious about the oddly named Glass Gems, he planted a handful of seeds in his garden. The spectacular plants that emerged took him by surprise. “I was blown away,” McDorman recalls. “No one had ever seen corn like this before.”
The story of Barnes, Schoen, and their remarkable corn is not unusual. For millennia, people have elegantly interacted with the plants that sustain them through careful selection and seed saving. This process, repeated year after year, changes and adapts the plants to take on any number of desirable characteristics, from enhanced color and flavor to disease resistance and hardiness. The bounty of genetic diversity our ancestral farmers and gardeners created in this way was shared and handed down across generations. But under today’s industrial agricultural paradigm of monocropping, GMOs, and hybrid seeds, this incredible diversity has been narrowed to a shred of its former abundance. A 1983 study compared the seed varieties found in the USDA seed bank at the time with those available in commercial seed catalogs in 1903. The results were striking. Of the 408 different tomato varieties on the market at the turn of the century, less than 80 were present in the USDA collection. Similarly, lettuces that once flourished with 497 heirloom varieties were only represented by 36 varieties. The same held true for most other veggies including sweet corn, of which only a dozen cultivars were preserved out of 307 unique varieties once available in the catalogs. Though this data leaves some questions around actual diversity decline, the trend toward dwindling crop diversity is alarming. In just a few generations, both the time-honored knowledge of seed saving and many irreplaceable seeds are in danger of disappearing. Though much of this diversity may be gone, all hope is not lost. The emergence of a breathtaking heirloom variety like Glass Gem reveals that the art and magic of seed saving lives on. It reminds us that we can return to this age-old practice and restore beauty, wonder, and abundance to our world. Indeed, this renaissance is already underway. The rising seed library movement is encouraging local gardeners to become crop breeders and empowering communities to reclaim sovereignty over their food. Our pioneering Seed School program at Native Seeds/ SEARCH is training people from all walks of life in building sustainable local seed systems rooted in ancient traditions. And as eye-popping images of Glass Gem continue to spread around the world, Carl Barnes’ kaleidoscopic corn has become a beacon—and perhaps an inspiring symbol—for the global seed-saving revival. Many people have contacted us looking to

obtain Glass Gem seed. We are currently sold out of the small quantity we had in stock, but there are plans to grow out a substantial amount this summer. Fresh seed should be available by October 2012. In the meantime, we have set up a waiting list for all who wish to purchase Glass Gem. Click here to be added to the list, and you will be notified as soon it becomes available. Native Seeds/SEARCH members will get priority access; click here to become a member. For those that have asked about its edibility, Glass Gem is a flint corn used for making flour or as a popping corn. Unlike sweet corn, it is not edible right off the cob. However, it was likely bred as an ornamental variety—for obvious reasons. Many of these exquisite ears are simply too beautiful to eat. We encourage everyone who grows Glass Gem corn to rejoin the ritual of seed saving by setting aside your favorite selections for replanting the following year. Share seed with your friends and neighbors, organize a seed swap, or start a seed library in your community. Support Native Seeds/SEARCH in our work to conserve and protect Glass Gem corn along with the nearly 2,000 rare, aridlands-adapted crop varieties we steward in our seed bank. Your efforts and energy make a difference. As Carl Barnes has taught us, all it takes is one person to create a more colorful, diverse and abundant world—one seed at a time.

Food Freedom – We Can Decide What Is Best for Us
www.ThatsNatural.info Page 7
Tisha T. Casida
A good fight, or a good challenge, is what keeps us achieving our best. As individuals, as a team, as a family, a community, even a country. So our Food Fight is one to be recognized and embraced by people who respect that each of us should have the opportunity and ability to decide for ourselves what we want to eat, what we want to use as medicine, and what we put both in and on our bodies. Consumer choice is the basis for freemarket capitalism. If you let people decide what they want to buy, then this leads to innovation, lower prices, and ultimately competition – which again, is a very good thing. I have been drinking raw milk on and off for several years now – it is so good for me – I notice immediate benefits in how I feel, my complexion, and the health of my teeth (see disclaimer on cover page). I am actually lactose-intolerant, but can drink milk that has not been pasteurized (from a source that I trust) because of the enzymes (enzymes are destroyed when milk (or anything for that matter) is pasteurized). I do not want any governmental entity telling me that I cannot decide for myself if I can drink raw milk. I want to be able to make that choice and vet my farmer – I do not need a health department or any federal agency doing that for me - guidelines are fine, but at the end of the day, I do deserve to make the ultimate decision. I also believe that genetically-modified organisms are a rather recent and untested phenomena in the span of human existence, and that people should have a choice whether or not they consume products that contain such entities. Consumers can hold farmers and ranchers accountable for what they are doing with their land and crops – consumers do this through voting with their dollar – and supporting farmers and ranchers that are engaging in practices that they like and trust. Alternative and naturopathic medicines are another category where the food fight is alive and well – people should always have the opportunity to choose for them-

selves what medicines they use to treat sickness and disease – no government entity should stop people from choosing what goes in or on their body. We are individuals, and we all have a responsibility to protect and feed our body and mind. Oftentimes, in an effort to “help others” or “protect others”, people use the law (force) to try to make people make decisions that are better for them. These laws can eventually be interpreted to stop people from engaging in freedom of choice. I see that with raw milk, with organic and natural foods, and with alternative medicines (e.g. herbal supplements). Our food freedom is everything – it allows us to embrace agriculture (the basis for all human development), our roots, our being – and choose how we want to take care of the body and mind that we enjoy life with. It is a very good fight, and one….That’s Natural! Tisha Casida is running for Congress as an Independent in Colorado’s District 3.

Values: Parker Pastures strives to create thriving ecosytems, healthy foods, and a regenerative economy. Our business will be a model of sustainable agriculture and will support a high quality of live for the owners and the employees. We will conduct all relationships with integrity.

Local Currency - Colorado Mountain Hours That’s Natural! Reports
The People are creating their own money to harness their own commercial energy! What is MORE revolutionary than that? This is a true grass roots revolution which cannot be co-opted as YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBORS control/create/distribute money. We are not just posting/talking/complaining/occupying/whining about problems. “Talk is cheap”. We have already initiated our plan for a local currency modeled after Ithaca, New York’s 20-year-old system. We intend to radically innovate money creation and lending. There is no reason to pay interest/usury/riba. We can buy almost three houses for the same energy we use to pay off one today. Additionally, we can fund a voluntary society through a fee-based lending system for homes. For example: having no income taxes/property taxes/victimless crimes.
Leaders offer solutions. Fear mongers are tools. Mountain Hours is dedicated to the RADICAL INNOVATION of the world’s monetary systems which can offer abundance THIS YEAR – the 2012 Jubilee, and the abolition of usury. The “money changers” artificially suppress our human potential via interest/ usury/riba. Money is just a technology which can be used for good, or evil. A step by step plan for the universal debt Jubilee can be found at mtnHours.com. It truly is possible to take our monetary system back to the local level (hint: hire the sheriff with the local currency so he will work for the people to end income/property taxes/foreclosures/victimless crimes).
