"The Beauty and Barber Shop" 
(or "Storefront") Initiative
Cathy Harris launches "The Beauty and Barber Shop" (or "Storefront") Initiative. This initiative is being launched by Cathy Harris from "Virtual Organic Garden Clubs" at http://www.VirtualOrganicGardenClubs.com and "The Essential Women's Movement for African American Women" at http://www.EssentialMentors.com. The initiative is created to help African American families gain access to good clean, organic foods, while they start businesses, especially around growing foods.
We are asking all African American Beauty and Barbers Shop owners or business owners with storefronts to consider allowing business coaches, consultants, mentors, tutors and other business owners to set up an area once or twice a week in your storefront, in order to educate the community. This would be a win, win for everyone because both the storefront owners and business owners would obtain more clients and customers, especially now while school is out for the summer.
We will announce this training through meetup.com groups, ads in newspapers, through churches and community meetings.
Business training will include FREE consultations or coaching sessions on -- 1) The steps to start a business, 2) How to set entrepreneurial goals, 3) How to create a business plan, 3) How to obtain business start-up money, 4) Business ethics and etiquette training, 5) How to develop marketable skills, 6) How to network with local business owners, and 7) How to obtain business mentors. 
Just some of the reasons that youths should open their own businesses include: 1) Young adults need to learn responsibility to prepare for adulthood, 2) It gives them something constructive to do with their time, 3) They can help their family out financially, 4) New businesses improves the conditions of the community, 5) They can pay for their entire college education, and 6) They have no other choice because of the economy.
Some easy to set up businesses just in time for summer include: Gardening and greenhouse consultants; Tutoring businesses; Resume businesses; Author/publishing company; Pet sitting/walking businesses; T-shirt businesses; Flyer distribution businesses; Newsletter/Marketing/PR businesses; Giving lessons - music, dancing, or cooking; Baking cakes, pastries or cookies; Garage cleaning; Lawn maintenance; Computer training; Website or Graphic Designing - just to name a few.
It's time to invest in our children! This is a great opportunity for multi-talented youths to use their skills and stay out of trouble this summer. Children are much more energetic and resourceful than adults and they live in a world of technology so they can start making money in 2 weeks to 30 days by using their own skills, talents and passions. 

So that we can prepare families to work in job's programs or grow their own foods and become business owners read Cathy Harris' business books entitled "The New CEO: 185 Easy-To-Set Up Businesses for Youth and Adult Entrepreneurs" and "How To Take Control of Your Own Life: A Self-Help Guide to Starting Your Own Business" (Series 2) and recently released "Overcoming Food Deserts in Your Community: How To Start A Home, School or Community Garden, Food Co-op or Food Coalition" -- available as e-books and paperback books at http://www.AngelsPress.com.
If you would like to sign your business up for this initiative and be listed on our website and receive free marketing, contact Cathy Harris, who is a National Non-GMO Health and Wellness Expert, Speaker and Author at Angels Press, P.O.

My First Garden Journey - How I Built A Raised Bed Garden - Cathy Harris

My First Garden Journey
How I Built A Raised Bed Garden
by Cathy Harris
www.CathyHarrisGardenClub.com
Growing our own foods is new to me, but I am up for the challenge. No...the picture above is not my garden. However, it looks identical to our garden when I was growing up. My garden so far - is the picture below, or that's how it initially looked when my mate and I got started with it. 
Being raised on a farm, this is my first garden as an adult. At 60 years old, many people would probably be too embarrassed to admit that they are finally growing their first garden. However, it's especially Seniors today that need to start growing their own foods to make sure foods are safe to eat; to fight diseases; and to cut down on grocery bills, especially as they age. 
Check out this picture from my first backyard raised bed garden. We found some plywood laying around and just put the garden together. The stick is propped under there until we can level the ground under the bed. Some people s…

Step 1 - Buy The Book:
The below book will lay out the foundation for this new national food project as it will teach each family, who is not familiar with growing their foods - how to start a home, school, or community garden, food co-op or food coalition so read the book today, available as an e-book and paperback book "Overcoming Food Deserts in Your Community: How To Start A Home, School or Community Garden, Food Co-op or Food Coalition."
Step 2 - Set Up "Virtual Organic Garden Clubs" and  Hold Monthly Meetings:
There are two types of garden clubs - a FLOWER and PLANT garden club and a FOOD garden club. Of course we are dealing with growing our own foods. If you can grow flowers and plants, then there is a good chance that you can also grow foods - so get started today.
I also have my own garden club at "Cathy Harris Garden Club" (www.CathyHa…

Cathy Harris Book "Overcoming Food Deserts in Your Community: How To Start a Home, School, or Community Garden, Food Co-op or Food Coalition"

PREFACE – A NOTE TO THE READER
This book not only lays out several action plans to gain access to good, clean, organic foods, but it will help all family members gain access to job and business opportunities, while they eliminate food deserts in their communities.

Face it we will never get back to totally living off the land like our ancestors did, but families must come together today for the sake of future generations. We need to seriously look at solutions because this is the first generation that will not outlive their parents. However, there are economically empowered ways we can feed, clothe and shelter our own families.

Food is not always only about the most expedient way to suppress hunger. Many community organizations have long understood this and believe that food access and quality is tied to both racial and economic justice.

Over the past few years we have heard quite a bit about food deserts, or high poverty areas where a lack of grocery stores makes it difficult for resid…
