Humanitarian, author, and Garden of Eden ecovillage founder Quinn Eaker is a wealth of valuable knowledge. We will share one of his enlightening quotes for a taste of a new paradigm perspective!
Stop fucking around.
New Paradigm Parenting is a column for EVERYONE, not just parents, for we were ALL children at one time. Because we were all children and almost everyone has trauma of some kind, there is HEALING to take place and realizations to be had in the consciousness of parenting.
Quinn is truly an enlightened parent, and everyone at The Garden of Eden wishes that they had him for a father growing up and admire his state of mind and unwavering actions as a truly empowered parent. This will include videos, articles, and insight into how to have a healthy, abundant, and joyful experience of thrival with parenting.
How often does your 6 year old and 4 year old WANT to make a delicious sustainable dinner? ?
Projects, events, happenings -- there is always something going on at the Garden of Eden! We will keep you informed of the most important developments and affairs in our ecovillage and global expansion!

WHAT A LIFE THIS IS!!
With 2017 drawing to a close and the dawning of the new year, this is an excellent time to take stock of the past, present, and future of our ecovillage.
We have done so much, yet there is still so much to do.
Let's face it - this world is a bit shit. People are more broken, unhappy, and unhealthy than ever before, and our social and political structures do not offer any real solutions.
WE, however, ARE dedicated to BEING THE CHANGE, because we can't afford to wait around for anyone else to build the world we want to see. It's up to each and every one of us to take responsibility for shaping our reality, and we take this honor, duty, and privilege very seriously.
We want to live in a world based on love,
and integrity -
you know, REAL values!
So in 2017 we created more epic handmade goods and we provided more unique and personal services, and then we gave it all away (again!!).
We offered opportunities to engage in Ethical Merchantry, and we pledged the resources towards building a better world for all - we don't keep the proceeds for ourselves, but instead we flow the goodwill forward to help other people.
We invested our time, energy, and resources in feeding tens of thousands of free meals (again!!),
saving hundreds of thousands of pounds of trash from the landfill (again!!),
achieving a negative carbon footprint by producing more than we consume (again!!),
and providing a safe space for children, mothers, and fathers to grow, play, learn, thrive, and live in love.
We provided a safe space for former drug addicts, alcoholics, and homeless people to heal.
We published thousands of articles to educate any and everyone on sustainable solutions for health, wellness, parenting, relationships, food, gardening, business, freedom, rights, the potential of community, and so much more.
We immersed ourselves in Steemit, because we see the value of a decentralized revolution, the blockchain, and cryptocurrency, and touched hundreds of thousands of people around the world. (see video below)
Through these efforts, we saved more lives.
We're not trained in any of this shit - we're dreamers & DOERS, and we're making it up as we go. Guided by Quinn Eaker's unwavering vision for a new paradigm of upgraded living for ALL, his extreme commitment, and his unrelenting generosity, the success of our ecovillage speaks for itself.
We have no dogma, only the TRUTH that WE ARE FREE to do whatever we want with this precious life force.
We choose to use our gifts to inspire. We choose to support each other. We choose to uplift each other. We choose to blaze the trail of a whole new paradigm's potential.
In 2018, building on our proven success over the past decade, we're expanding:
We are going to provide for more people than ever before.
We are going to feed, clothe, house, educate, heal, inspire, support, uplift, nurture, motivate, comfort, and excite more people to repair our aching human community & our living planet and PROTECT THE NEW GENERATION OF CHILDREN.
We invite you to dream harder than you've ever dreamed before, and we encourage you to do something about it.
We offer opportunities to be part of our project, or we offer our experience and wisdom to encourage you along your unique path. Everyone can contribute to a better world in their own way!
The time is now, and the revolution begins within.
Stay tuned for what we hope will be the most epic year yet from the Garden of Eden~*~

High vibe, über dank cuisine is one of our specialties, and we love to share food! Use our food formulas as inspiration to create your own world class dishes for yourself and your loved ones!
Of course it's amazing slathered on your favorite baked goods, but the options don't end there!
Here are a few more suggestions for incorporating this seasonal pumpkin butter into your food formulas:
- You can mix this amazing alchemy with oats, pecans, pumpkin seeds, and a little maple syrup, and bake it at 350F for about 20 minute to create an epic granola!
- Combine with coffee and milk for a pumpkin pie latte beyond anything you can get at a chain coffee shop!
- OR make an inspired pumpkin pie smoothie! Blend this incredible pumpkin butter with frozen bananas and almond or coconut milk.
- And how about topping a baked sweet potato with this fantastic concoction, marscarpone cheese, dried cranberries, and toasted walnuts?? YUMMMMMM!!!!!
Food preservation is an important aspect of any sustainable food production system. Each week, we will introduce you to one of our top shelf preserves!
Our CAYENNE CARAMEL PUMPKIN BUTTER
alchemizes Pumpkin, Caramel, Maple Syrup, Cinnamon, Ginger, Cayenne, Salt, and Vanilla for a unique sweet and spicy taste sensation to use as a topping, condiment, or glaze, or schmear it on your favorite baked good to level up in flavor!
Every aspect of life is better when you are healthy! In a world that is increasingly toxic, we are devoted to sharing natural, holistic, and accessible options for activating sustainable wellness. We want YOU to upgrade from survival to true THRIVAL!
Since we have been sharing so much about detoxing heavy metals naturally, it only makes sense to include a very common detoxer that is easy to grow!
Wintertime Cilantro, A Culinary Delight & Renowned Medicinal Detox
We love and honor the Earth, so it is our duty and honor to protect it. From gardening to construction, we have solutions for every aspect of life to improve existence for all beings and our living planet!
We don't use conventional central heat and air in the cold of winter, nor in the heat of summer.
In the winter time, we dank up our diet with rich foods to pack on the pounds and let a bit of extra blubber provide natural insulation! Warm beverages, including hot teas from our fresh or dried herbs, can also chase off the chill.
We also rejoice in bundling up, utilizing lots of layers of warm fabrics like silk and wool. The trick is to cover exposed skin, so tucking leggings into socks and undershirts into pants is how we roll this time of year. Hats are a fashionable must as well!
But one of the greatest parts of winter (and according to some of us, one of the very best features of life at the GoE), is delicious, snuggly HOT ROCKS!!!
We place bricks and stones on our indoor wood burning stove for an hour or two, wrap them in a towel, and cuddle up all day and night!
In lieu of a partner's tasty body heat to shack up with, hot rocks are the best way to stay toasty warm throughout the coldest nights and days.
We invite you to adventure into a new paradigm along side us, with a focus on community, sustainability and pure enjoyment of life.
