Live From Planet Earth

Live From Planet Earth features stories and products of self-sustaining tropical organic beings as meditation and inspiration, both for others returning to the lifestyle (livity) of the land and also for the merely curious. Please link us with any such Afro/Indigenous that you know or meet whom we may visit. Give thanks, bless up.
