Living Space

The folkish commune that came to be known by the convenient media tag as "the Manson Family" could serve as an aggressive blueprint for the attainment of the most ancient and noble conquest of Lebensraum or "living-space'', a concept, no doubt at the heart of any great commune or movement that has ever been set forth apon this planet. 

The American Revolution comes to mind here, as this concept, which is the key ingredient  for the balance of a healthy, sound ecology and the survival of the species. In a manner that would be conducive with THE NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS, rather than a destructive force against this very Nature. Such undeniable truths were undoubtedly realized by all founding fathers and is a real and valid concern today now more than ever!  

One can draw parellels here between the biblical children of Ham in search of a promised land and the Deutschlander of the 1930's and 1940's and more importantly, US in the HERE and NOW for we ATWArriors are indeed a Volk ohne Raum- ''a people without a space'',  and unless each and every one of us becomes citizen soldiers to the fullest extent of the word this dream may go off into oblivion ,and with it not only the existence of the human species but the entire planet, which in turn would send such irreversible repercussions into the universe that the entire solar system would lay in peril. The redemption plan begins and ends with the attainment of a living space, and it is only the armed peasant that can and will and must WORK to see that this DREAM become a REALITY for if we fail in this respect there can be no peace, nor will we be afforded the only one true prosperity - that is the reward of living in accord with NATURE. Think about this - if the concept of "living space" was a valid enough concern for so many great and terrible revolutions and world wars of yesterday and obviously was at the forefront of Manson's mindset in the late 1960's, how much more now, at an estimated 10 billion people upon this planet, is the necesitty that such concepts become reality. This can only come through complete and absolute unyielding REVOLUTION in thought, in word and in deed - THE ONLY WAY THERE WILL EVER BE PEACE ON EARTH IS TO BE AT PEACE WITH EARTH  (ATWA WEHRBAUER).

Harvest Time

The fields they are a' golden, now the cycle will complete, in order to harvest the grain, you have to cut the wheat''. 
- Charles Manson, 
''Get on Home'' 

The word ''harvest'', the process or period of gathering in crops comes from the Anglo-Saxon word haverfest, "Autumn". It refers to a time between seasons of reaping and gathering grain and other garden foods along with herbs and other plants. It is also the time of canning, preserving and drying what can be saved for the winter.
The full moon nearest the autumnal equinox is called the Harvest Moon.  In the traditions of our ancestors, Harvest Festivals were often traditionally held on or near the Harvest Moon. This year of 2011, the Harvest Moon will fall on September 12, with the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces.  

In the days before electricity, farmers counted on the lamp of the Harvest Moon to gather their crops. Making up for the autumn season’s waning daylight, the Harvest Moon faithfully provides several nights of dusk-till-dawn moonlight.
Harvest Moon is a magical time in the Order of ATWA, a time of reaping what has been sown, what has grown, a reward for hard work, a time to gather, prepare and share what will be needed for the dark inward seasons on the horizons.

D. Landreth Seed Co. The Oldest Seed House in America


Since 1784, the D. Landreth Seed Company has been providing its customers with one of the most extensive selections of fine lawn and garden seeds in the world. Our founders introduced into the United States some of the most beloved flowers and vegetables known today including the Zinnia, the white potato, various tomatoes, and our own Bloomsdale Spinach. We have become the oldest seed house in America because we are passionate in our quest for excellence in quality, service and innovation.

The D. Landreth Seed Company is pleased to announce the issuance of its 2012 Heirloom and Vintage Seed Catalogue. This catalogue has been created and printed with the same attention to detail and the same exacting quality that our customers appreciated in the Commemorative Catalogue. The detailed histories and descriptions of our heirloom and vintage seeds have been augmented with additional historic information from our archive of antique Landreth catalogues dating back to 1839. New illustrations from the original Landreth catalogues and some favorites from the Commemorative Catalogue have been included. This catalogue contains more original historic horticultural information than any other resource currently being published. For the passionate gardener, it will be a valued resource. For the novice gardener, it is an absolutely critical tool and for anyone who is blessed with a love of history and a yearning to be in the garden, it is an exquisite gift.

Orders will be filled on a first come-first serve basis. You are welcome to order as many catalogues as you wish, but please place your orders early. The catalogues will ship starting at the end of November and throughout December. Catalogues will ship in time to be Christmas presents if requested before December 1, 2011.

Why Do We Charge For Our Catalogues?

The D. Landreth Seed Company is America's Company. It was founded near the time of the birth of this Nation and has grown with this Country through its ups and its downs over the course of four centuries: the 1700's, the 1800's, the 1900's and now the 2000's. We are honored to have been a part of this Nation for so long, and we have a deep commitment and feel a great responsibility to this Country. We could have this catalogue printed overseas, and the printing costs would be 1/4th the costs of printing the catalogue in the United States, but we are not going to take American business overseas. The catalogue is designed by a small, Baltimore-based and family-owned business, Victor DiPace Associates and it is printed by a family-owned local printing company. Producing this catalogue is far more expensive than it is for most companies who are outsourcing their printing requirements overseas. We charge for our catalogue to help with some, but not all, of the costs to produce and mail. Each catalogue that you purchase from Landreth is helping to keep an American employed and therefore making this country stronger.

Golden Eye

Coming into my heart again

I an the darkness standing on the moon

Love and life I'm just a part of them
Soul soldiers never lose 'cause it's all within
The wind wins again...
and again
The eyes are the windows of my soul
I know
I know
I'll never start again...
Because I'll never end
Golden eye of the world is watching the soul tonight

As I sail my ships across the starlit sky
Low riders I know thee well
I've danced a thousand demons through the midnight hell
How can I tell ?
Who can I tell ?
Would I ?
Could I ?
Should I tell?
I tell myself
I am my own heaven
And my own Hell
- Charles Manson

Beauty & Duty

Sandra Good & Lynette Fromme 
at the Hall of Justice, City of Angels, 1970
''Charlie loved us to be beautiful
and he let us be beautiful.
And he robbed us from our parents...
and he gave us back to ourselves.
And he wouldn't take us hanging on him,
he wouldn't be our leader.
He made us be strong inside ourselves
and be our own leader....''
