Add beauty to your home with Ecuador roses and help Cotacachi the poor of Ecuador  in the process.

See how you can help wonderful Cotacachi farmers like this by enjoying Ecuador roses.


We recently wrote about Topo, a village near Cotacachi where our foundation is helping upgrade a school. We are also helping the village improve their water supply. See more on this at Ecuador Roses Help the Poor.

Topo, in the indigenous way, has an entire area above their village where they do not allow building.  This is the village farm.

When we visited the school last week, we also walked up and visited the mingo (working party) who was working there on improving the water supply.  Here is a picture taken by our friend Dennis Goff as Merri and I headed up the mountain.


Everyone works in the mingo… men…


and women.


These farmers lead a dignified, simple and beautiful life and there is a way we can make their way of life better by helping them farm better and organically.

Learn more about how to help these farmers at fresh Ecuador roses.

May I also introduce a great business opportunity that can create profit and help this village or farmers in almost any poor country around the world.

For years I have been writing about an organic soap – degreaser  that I became  enamored with  than a decade ago when after trimming one of our outside Christmas trees my hands were covered with pitch. The manufacturer had given me a bottle of his cleaner and it was amazing how it cut through the pitch.   This changed the way we clean everything because this cleaner is organic, bio degradable, non toxic, and cleans really well.

We use this on everything because though it is totally organic and readily biodegradable, it is a potent germ killer.

I wash my hair with it yet I have a copy of a lab report from Davis Analytical Laboratories in Sarasota Florida which shows that two to three drops has the same effect as one drop of clorox.

Then it was discovered that this cleaner and some derivative formulas make excellent bio washes, fertilizers and even pesticides (though they cannot be sold as such in some countries).

I introduced this product to the arborist we have been using to fight the Wooley Adelgid blight in the Hemlocks of North Carolina.  He has told me that he has used this (as we do) to effectively stop the blight.

These solutions are certified free of all carcinogens, including the ones described in this article.

One of he world’s largest retailers did an intensive study of all “green” and “environmental” cleaning products and discovered that these cleaners are the only truly green ones.

Many other “safe” cleaning products contain ethylene oxide and dioxane, both known to cause cancer.

Here is where the opportunity comes in.  The product can help organic farmers in many countries. Mexico is one good example.

The first small test sample of the cleaner was formulated for farming and sent to Mexico in June 2007.

A PhD Chemist from Poly Tech Institute tested it on five acres of sweet corn in Guanajuato. It was past the normal planting season but he planted anyway. The stalks grew to eight feet tall and the ears were much larger than normal. The stalks were so robust and healthy, that after the harvest, he sold the stalks for cow feed.  Here is the corn.


tall and with these long ears.


Corn is the biggest crop in Mexico The average Mexican corn farmer earns about $100 per acre. Dr. Rico’s five acres brought him approximate $2,000 or $400 per acre.

In Nuevo Italia,  and other farmer treated approximately 1,000 mango trees. He advised that his increased averaged 300 additional mangos per tree and earned an extra $60,000 income.

Antonio Gutierrez, La Ruana, owned 70 acres of diseased limes. In 2007, his total income was only $18,000. He tested this BioWash on several rows and had positive results.

Here is Antonio in front of a tree that had been diseased but recovered after BioWashing.


In 2008, Antonio BioWashed his entire 70 acres.  By February, which was mid-season his income had already soared to over $100,000.


His quality had increase so significantly that he received six pesos per kilo instead of the normal four pesos per kilo. His yield has increased dramatically. Instead of the usual 2 to four limes per cluster, some clusters had over ten limes.

The photo above shows Antonio and our friend  holding a cluster of eleven limes.

Antonio was so pleased with his lime results, he BioWashed 25 acres of papayas. Instead of tall, spindly Florida style papaya trees with only a dozen small papayas, his trees produced 60 to 100 giant papayas.


In Antonio’s area, the papayas season normally runs from January to May or June. In November, 2008, Antonio’s friend, Pedro visited our plant. Pedro advised that Antonio was still harvesting and selling papayas in November. He ships them to Los Angeles labeled “Pesticide Free.”  Antonio’s income from 25 BioWashed acres is estimated around $1,000,000.

Antonio hired 20 additional men to help harvest his produce, thus reducing the need for those men to the U.S. for employment.

In farmlands southwest of Guadalajara, tomato growers had unsuccessfully attempted to protect their crops from insects by growing them inside greenhouses. They achieved success with BioWash.


Farmers who BioWash perennials such squash and tomatoes extend their productive season. Dr Rico’s brother grows backyard tomatoes. His vines continued producing tomatoes for 12 weeks rather than the usual six weeks. He discovered that BioWashed tomatoes remain edible up to six weeks after harvesting.

A squash grower increases and extends his “Pesticide Free” squash harvest.

Here is a farmer BioWashing a squash vine and…


and a large, pesticide free squash.
