At Living Ground we are always researching and creating products to help the micriobiome (that includes for the soil and the human).

Introducing a new product that combines the power of bovine colostrum, yogurt, probiotic supplements, and vitamin C to boost your immune system and promote overall health.

GcMAF is a protein that is naturally produced by the body’s immune system. It helps to activate macrophages, which are a type of white blood cell that plays a key role in the immune response. GcMAF has been shown to have a number of potential health benefits, including boosting the immune system, repairing damaged tissue, preventing the growth and spread of viruses and pathogens, reducing inflammation, and protecting against cancer.   While GcMAF is naturally produced by the body, some people may not produce enough of it. This can lead to a weakened immune system and an increased risk of developing chronic diseases.

Our new product is designed to help people boost their GcMAF levels and improve their overall health. It is made with a unique blend of local, fresh bovine colostrum, yogurt, probiotic supplements, and vitamin C. These ingredients have been shown to work synergistically to promote the production of GcMAF.

GcMAF is crucial for a healthy functioning immune system. It repairs damaged tissue, supports the immune system in preventing infections, and helps to fight cancer.  GcMAF stands for Gc protein-derived macrophage activating factor. It is a protein that is naturally produced by the body’s immune system. GcMAF helps to activate macrophages, which are a type of white blood cell that plays a key role in the immune response.

GcMAF is not naturally present in blend of bovine colostrum, yogurt, probiotic supplements and vitamin C. However, the cool thing is when these ingredients are combined, they can create an environment that is conducive to the production of GcMAF by the body’s own immune system.

Bovine colostrum contains growth factors that can help to heal and protect the gut lining. This is important because the gut is where most of the body’s immune cells are produced. When the gut is healthy, it can produce more GcMAF.

Yogurt contains probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria that live in the gut. Probiotics help to keep the gut healthy and can also help to boost the immune system.   This this we added a powerful Probiotic supplement that contains concentrated amounts of beneficial bacteria. These supplements can help to further improve gut health and boost the immune system.

Finally we added our homemade Vitamin C which acts as an antioxidant that can help to protect the body from damage. Vitamin C can also help to improve immune function.

When these ingredients are combined, they can create a synergistic effect that can help to boost the immune system and promote the production of GcMAF.

Here is a more detailed explanation of how each ingredient can contribute to the production of GcMAF:

  • Bovine colostrum: Colostrum contains growth factors that can help to heal and protect the gut lining. This is important because the gut is where most of the body’s immune cells are produced. When the gut is healthy, it can produce more GcMAF.
  • Yogurt: Yogurt contains probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria that live in the gut. Probiotics help to keep the gut healthy and can also help to boost the immune system. When probiotics are present in the gut, they can help to produce more GcMAF.
  • Probiotic supplement: Probiotic supplements contain concentrated amounts of beneficial bacteria. These supplements can help to further improve gut health and boost the immune system. When probiotic supplements are taken, they can help to increase the production of GcMAF.
  • Vitamin C: Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can help to protect the body from damage. Vitamin C can also help to improve immune function. When vitamin C is present in the body, it can help to increase the production of GcMAF.

Colostrum: A Powerful Immune Booster

When you contract a bacterial or “bad guy” illness, your immune system responds by activating NK cells, which attack and destroy the offenders. Colostrum, the fluid produced by new mothers in the first few days after birth, can help support NK cell function and improve your immune response.   People with lower levels of NK cells are more susceptible to the flu. Colostrum can also help to reduce inflammation, improve metabolism, and protect against cancer.  In addition to supporting NK cells, colostrum contains growth factors that can help to heal and protect the gut lining. This can help to reduce symptoms of leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to inflammation and other health problems.

Colostrum also contains antibodies and lactoferrin, which help to maintain a healthy gut microbiome. A healthy microbiome is essential for overall health and well-being.

GcMAF Probiotic Yogurt can help to support overall health by:

  • Normalizing immunity
  • Normalizing bowel function
  • Improving energy levels
  • Improving mental clarity
  • Reducing food allergies
  • Optimizing athletic performance
  • Promoting longevity
  • Anti-carcinogenic

Our GcMAF Probiotic Yogurt is also beneficial for people with compromised immune systems, such as those with:

  • AIDS
  • Allergies
  • Autism spectrum conditions
  • Bacterial infections
  • Cancer
  • Candidiasis
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Fungal infections
  • Frequent infections
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Lupus
  • Lyme disease
  • Severe IBS
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Viral infections
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Yeast infections
  • Obesity

If you are looking for a way to improve your overall health and well-being, GcMAF Vitamin C Probiotic Yogurt is a great option to consider. It is a safe and effective way to boost your immune system and support overall health.


Shifting the Medical Paradigm with GcMAF and Raw Milk


September 1, 2023,  marks the one year anniversary for tThe Living Ground Project.   One year ago today, we took over our first microbe compost site.    What a year it has been!

A year ago,  were expecting the gifts….a  Mighty Mike Compost Maker and Slow Speed Tracker …to arrive.  It was an amazing and exciting donation to Living Ground from a USA foundation that beleived in our work.    We acquired a site and began preparing it for for mass producing Microbes.     

The equipment never arrived.   The COVID restrictions and transportation mess made it impossible.    Disappointing!  Subsequently, these machines were donated to Dr Elaine’s (our teacher) in Oregon.  Needless to say, we had no choice than to learn how to mass produce microbes by hand.   And, we perfected the process.   I beleive we are the first SFW students to successfully mass produce Microbe Compost.

Then we considered another local site for operations that was around the corner from our operations.  While it was amazing, it was too expensive!  It was an old delapitated building that was home (dormintory) to highway workers.  The grounds were contaminated.   “Imposssible”, we thought! And, perhaps too big for us?    March of 2023, against all odds and much risk taking, we acquired the site literally saving the land from a gas company.  Now what!  The dream grew tremendously and the work too!

A lot has happened in this last year….really it is a full books worth of changes and experiences:   We’ve gained, lost, challenged, overcome and tried to do our best.   


  1. We’ve had successes (like acquiring the Project Site) and disappointments (facing the challenges of human transformations and staying true to our values and morals).   
  2. We’ve charged ahead with gusto making things happen despite having little means.   We acquired the Project Site.  
  3. We’ve opened our Microbe/Health Air bnb.  This is the beginning of the tourism aspect of the Project.
  4. We’ve showcase our value added microbe grown products in our community.   
  5. We are creating the landscape foundations at the Project Site creating the 2nd market garden and Secret garden. 
  6. We are consulting and transforming lands.
  7. We are creating our educational platforms (online and onsite)  
  8. We are moving forward!    Our fireside chat video (here) explains how we are “doing” all we said we would do!   

Yes, as you can imagine, there is a lot going on is the background.   It is organized chaos! 

As Mama Microbe, I am proud of the team and the supporters (volunteers) who are helping make this happen.   It isn’t easy but each one of us is growing, learning and discovering.   

The Project (whether applied to the physcial or the personal) is rooted in the belief that even the tiniest of beings can create ripples of change.    This statement is one I repeat over and over as a mantra to remind myself that this initiative stands as a testament to the power of human determination, creativity, and purpose.   What can we accomplish when we come together?    Our project is also rooted in the concept of symbiosis (which embraces tension) and we practice respect and honor for the earth and each other.   We often we find ourselves giving more than we recieve.   In today’s world of consciousness, this is going against the grain (or the swing of self-obsession).   It is important!

Personally, I see this project as a canvas of hope, collaboration, and transformation. It’s not just a project; it’s an embodiment of the “little good guy” humans working hand in hand with the “little good guys” of nature – the microbes that lay the foundation for all life.   Although the trend is moving towards understanding microbes (in the human and soil), we have in the palm of our hands a unique mission: to nurture the Earth, empower communities, and foster a new understanding of life itself and mimic the microbes symbiosis.   It is beautiful!

Recently, I had the privilege of witnessing another project, quite similar in purpose.   I was inspired and amazed at this Project and intrigue with how we could cooperate.   We are on a similar path with one key difference – the availability of financial resources.  Honestly, it would be easy to feel deflated or frustrated as the Living Ground Project struggles to bootstrap its way forward, working tirelessly with limited financial means. Yet, within this challenge lies a profound opportunity.   I use my mantra to give me hope!    

I realize that there is a book forming from the stories and experiences we are all having at Living Ground.   The ups and downs, the challenges and discernments are creating a symbiotic tale of what can happen is the little guys come together.   I’ve found myself being too trusting in many situations so that the “team” intervenes to put me back in line.   I’ve been blamed and accused of things that I don’t own.  It is quite a story and one that will be shared one day!  

And, the Living Ground Project isn’t just about the end result; it’s about the journey. It’s about proving that dedication, passion, and resilience can transcend personal and economic barriers. It’s a bold assertion that the “little guys” – whether they’re the microbes in the soil or the humans with dreams – can bring about real change, regardless of the odds stacked against them.

Yes, our financial resources are scarce.  But we are doing it!    The Living Ground Project is rich in heart, spirit, and ingenuity. The Soil Squad team pours their soul into each endeavor, raising the project brick by brick, hand by hand, project by project. Every step is a triumph over adversity, an embodiment of the spirit that refuses to be confined by limitations.

Creativity takes center stage as the project navigates the challenge of acquiring materials while ensuring fair compensation (now and in the future). It’s a dance of innovation and determination, a story of crafting something magical.

And, my intention is real!    My aim is to raise this Project until the leaders are confident and secure.   When this time comes, I will gift it into the hands of good people to continue with the legacy and mission.   I have even thought about moving back to a new Magical Forest.  For those who don’t know me, the Magical Forest was my created home when I arrived in Ecuador where I lived without walls, in a tree house and as self sufficent as I could.   I will return to this space and create my nature living once again.  Perhaps I become the crazy lady in the bush who can mentor the Team from afar?

So I am sharing a little of the “Behind the Scenes”.    We are doing the work with purpose.    We are spreading the microbes.    It is happening.   And as we charge ahead with our mission, the microbes silently work their magic in the soil.  Our greatest ally is these “good little guys”.   Together, we weave a narrative of growth, connection, and transformation.

We don’t have much, but the Living Ground Project isn’t just about resources; it’s about redefining success. It’s about proving that the impact of an initiative isn’t solely measured in economics. It’s about leaving an indelible mark on hearts and landscapes, about fostering a community that understands the language of the Earth and the unity of life.

This is about realizing the truth about who we are!   We are more than just humans. We are mostly microbes. Trillions of these microscopic allies reside within our very beings, shaping our existence.  Just as every note in a symphony contributes to the grand melody, every microbe within us harmonizes with the greater whole. These tiny creatures are the unseen architects of vitality, creating ecosystems of unparalleled complexity. Their currencies are nutrients, energy flows, and the exchange of information that shapes the very fabric of life.

In a world often driven by economic systems, the microcosm within us and around us serves as a living testament to a different way of thriving. It’s a profound reminder that the sustenance of life need not be tethered to monetary transactions. Rather, it relies on the elegant dance of ecosystems, the generosity of nature, and the sacred balance that honors the interconnectedness of all beings.

So, as the Living Ground Project marches forward, remember that every step is a triumph over adversity. Every brick laid, every hand extended, every project undertaken is a testament to the unwavering spirit that knows no boundaries. It’s a beacon of hope for all “little good guys,” showing that with heart, determination, and a touch of magic, they can transform the world.

The Living Ground Project is not just a project – it’s a legacy in the making, a living testament to the potential of the “little guys” who dare to dream big.

To Nic, Tamar, Ian and Jimini, I love you dearly!   You are all such adorable misfits.   I ask for your forgiveness in where I fail and your patience as I, too, grow and learn.   One year….one year…and so much has happened.    I adore you!


Now for a photo story of the past year1

I commit and dedicate myself to this work…. it is needed and important for you and those that come behind us!   This is for Kaya!


Recently, I embarked on a journey to the Ecuadorian seaside.  The purpose was to write.  Living Ground is creating our education platform to share our knowledge and self-reliance, health and microbes.  We are creating courses on Microbe Compost, Growing Food and Medicine, Layperson’s Guide to Live Blood Analysis, Alternative Protocols, Kitchen Alchemy, and a comprehensive herbal guide.

I wrote!  I wrote a lot.  Amid this ocean waves sound track, a newfound inspiration surged within me, prompting me to embark on a profound new idea that is perhaps uncharted  in thought and creation (to the best of my knowledge)   

I found myself meticulously crafting the herbal course and it underwent a transformative evolution. I’ve selected 43 herbs, each possessing universal adaptability (can grow anywhere) and have detailed their potent medicinal properties and cultivation methods.  I created characters for the herbs giving them a creation story with a special microbe..the symbiotic relationship.

Yet, the journey didn’t end there; it evolved into a deeper inquiry into the symbiotic relationship between these plants and the microbial world.   Those who know me know I am enthralled by the intricate dance between flora and microbes, I also found myself exploring and writing about the delicate equilibrium that shapes our ecosystem and human microbiome.    It was exhilarating  to say the least and I wrote over 250 pages during my coastal sojourn.  I beleive it is maybe 1/2 complete.

The comprehensive manual for the layperson’s Live Blood Analysis course nears completion, awaiting only the addition of visual aids to enhance its depth. The magnum opus of Microbe Compost, an exploration into the art and science of enriching soil vitality,  is in the final stages of formatting. Equally enthralling is sharing my collection of natural health protocols and terrain theory insights, including a treasury of herbal recipes that bridge the realms of health and culinary alchemy.

As these projectss are slowly reaching their fruition.   It is a labour of love!

Our aspiration is to extend this wealth of knowledge to others.   So, Online platforms will soon offer the courses.

Yet, as much as we embrace the digital age, we hold steadfast to the belief that the most profound learning occurs through tangible experiences. With open arms, we will be able to invite learners, students and seekers to our Project Site, where hands-on engagement breathes life into the written word.   It is slowly and surely coming together.  I am grateful for Mama Sea and the Soil Squad who held down the fort amazingly.    It is a blessing to be working with such generous and kind people!

Our ultimate mission is to send ripples of transformation far and wide, just like a drop in the boundless ocean, as we share the fruits of our labor with a world thirsting for knowledge and healing.

We have an array of lovingly handcrafted products that cater to your well-being. From Bug Off Serums that effectively repel pesky insects to herbal whipped butters, salsas, and vitamin C jams, each creation is a testament to our commitment to excellence and quality. Indulge your taste buds with our mouthwatering curries that celebrate the art of culinary flavors.

As the beginnings of our Natural Health Food Store Pod, we aim to offer our community a variety of amazing products that embody the essence of holistic well-being. However, our secret ingredient lies within the microbes of our soil, which we carefully farm to ensure the highest nutritional value in all our plants.

Join us in this journey of regenerative agriculture and discover the wonders of microbe-rich foods, inspired by the abundance and wisdom of the Earth. Together, we can create a sustainable future and nurture a thriving community dedicated to holistic health and well-being.    To learn more about the nutrition loss, here is a great article

At Living Ground, we are on a mission to restore the balance between our bodies and the Earth through nurturing the soil and harnessing the potential of beneficial microbes. Our Saturday market serves as a celebration of this vision, where we invite you to experience the joys of living in harmony with nature while nourishing your body and soul with our thoughtfully crafted offerings.

Sacred Commerce Workshop April 29-30

Are you curious about what Living Ground Project is all about?    Are you wondering how to get involved and/or support the Project?

We invite you to our base-line workshop where we dive into the creation of Living Ground, it’s purpose, mission, values and the lego blocks of the creative intentions.    This is a 2-day workshop that is also an event to help with the financial support required to begin the lift off.

Last week, we legally acquired the Project Site located in Masanamaca.   This is a one hectare land with a very large 1000 m2 building.   Our vision for this site is for it to become the Microbe Education and Tourism headquarters for Ecuador (and even South America).    The business model is is a creative construction of values and intentions to place people before profits through collaboration and interdependent “pods”.    

This workshop is a invitation for all locals to learn, discover and possibily get involved.    Day 2 is optional for those who are inspired and wish to go deeper into collaboration.   We are sharing the concept of sacred commerce, the measurement of success and intending to raise leaders in the Project’s purpose.

We, the Soil Squad, do feel this is a Project for World Changers!    We have the concept, the project site and the plan!    You are officially welcomed to join us and let’s change the world!

To discover why this project is important in the climate of today’s world, here are 30 base reasons (and we can find more)

Please RSVP to or whatsapp 0988771568.    We are “looking forward” and excited about this gathering.Workshop Details on our website


In Gratitude!

The creation process has begun.   Our first mission is to lay the foundation of microbes and gardens on the Project site.   We are planning out the special gardens that will include a “secret garden” and a fully opertational Market Garden.     We are decorating the site with rare, unusual and special trees as well.   

Microbe Compost

Our Microbe Compost is ready.   As we regularly check all our compost with the microscope, we are confident all the good guys are home.   We are very proud of our Ecuadorian team who have been learning, studying and labouring in the Microbe Compost creation.   They care for the piles like their own children.    We are sharing the microscope skills with them too so that one day, they can monitor and measure success on their own.   To purchase our compost, please visit HERE or contact Nic to place an order.   We are also selling matured Organic Matter in blends (perfect food for the microbes), microbe extracts and teas (specially made to order to ensure they are aerobic) and we are actively consulting with land owners to spread the magic of the microbes. 

Rising of the Microbe Coop Basket POD

One market garden is already in full production and we are gearing up to offer weekly baskets of microbe grown food to our customers.   This offering will be available in May.    Our baskets will include a mixture of greens, herbs, vegetables, fruits inlcuding berries, gourmet dressings and samples of gourmet products made from microbe grown plants.     To register for this program and enjoy the nutritious harvests, please email Jimini

Microbe & Health Tourism

One of the PODS of the Living Ground Project is to establish tourism for those interested in health and microbes.    We have been busy working on a “launch” site for this offering and will be ready very, very soon to offer tourism and health packages to the world.    The Project Site has huge possibility for this POD with the potential to create comfortable rooms for both individuals and families.   It is our intention to launch our “test” in the month of May.   This space will include all tools necessary for a healing, health and educational experience for both locals and internationals.
