Growing Paradise in Cape Town, South Africa

Rarely do Americans end up in Cape Town.
Its a great place, with a reputation that may scare away some
but overall an extremely pleasant place to be.

I was there for 6 weeks, and although I was flown out there for modeling,
a main personal priority was to plant a food forest out there for
my new social initiative, "Grow Paradise". 
It can be found at

My talks and my writings have shifted from Raw Veganism
to more ones more based on Permaculture and holistic living in general.

I feel that this approach is not only more realistic and sound,
but can actually attract the masses and keep them excited about
this new lifestyle and an entire new way to view life.

Raw Veganism is extremely exclusive. Let's be honest.
Few people in our society would subscribe to it, 
and perhaps its because they really shouldn't or at least don't really have to.

So will keep having posts on it,
and will still have the youtube channel of course,
but the passion and the mission is Grow Paradise.

Soon I will be getting tote bags and organic t-shirts for this,
and will also be selling seeds and other related items again soon.

Its a huge year for everything, and because the story is so perfect,
I was able to help get this Cape Town Food Forest off the ground
and it all happened on Valentines Day. Too cool.

Enjoy the video - and please spread around if you'd like!
Im funding this with my own money and generous donations from others,
so even $1 or $5 helps! The "tip jar" is right on the main page of Grow Paradise.

There is a project happening in Harlem in a few weeks,
and I will be speaking there on "Career Day" April 4th about my story
and how eating healthy, exercise, and green living has helped my career. 

Projects and Retreats happening soon in Minnesota, Utah, Hawaii, New Jersey, 
Arizona, Florida, California, and so much more. 

Ill be speaking in London at the end of June as well, 
so definitely stay in touch on FB.

Big year...keep spreading the organic garden/food forest vibe!!
