Princess Yapanepet, left, below in photo with her sister Clara, examines Daniela's coloring book the day she accpted the nomination to be ruling princess of the Earthgardens.

Princesses rule for 3 months, using exclusively the magic of benevolence, and distributing the gifts donated to the Court of the Princess to rural children.

After a dance session filmed for local television, the girls of a rural Bolivian town rest in the garden.

her message:

I'm very grateful to represent, as reigning Amazongarden Princess, the beauty of this planet's biodiversity and new directional societies.

Let's all use our creativity to make this garden Amazon blossom with beauty!

Here are some suggestions for improving the situation immediately:

I would like to see the BOLIVIAN ARMY become PROTECTOR OF THE ENVIRONMENT, putting out fires and dealing with the burners, and stopping illegal logging.

POLITICAL PARTIES in Latin America should stop the horrible practice of putting campaign posters everywhere which tourists say is one of the ugliest things about this continent. .

Volunteers, We must begin immediately to educate all families in Bolivia with the basic rules of health: We need your help to do it.

We call NGOs and volunteers to form action teams in all the Amazon tostop the fires that are destroying nature. Please help us with funds if u can't come personally

I invite European designers to help create ECO TEAM uniform shirts and blouses, for our local teams. Each team chooses their unique style. (Email me for specifications). There are now over 700 schools waiting to participate in these teams which brings boys and girls together in constructive activity. Teams will leave school 2-4 days a week in improving the village.

I suggest CHURCHES OPEN THEIR DOORS TO THE HOMELESS every night, and churchgoers serve them.(Our EARTHFITNESS standards insure no occupants leave a mess. The rule is "leave no traces", and it applies to all of life.

Let's get TV to start depicting PEOPLE WHO HELP OTHERS, and who HELP THE ENVIRONMENT as protagonists in movies and soaps, not people who kill.

Let's bring SOLAR power to rural Bolivia, which offers perfect conditions for its use, lots of sun, and no power!.

We can get PUBLIC RECOGNITION of village improvement and forest preservation ON prime time TV AND IN THE PRESS every day with a little help from you. We've done it, it's popular, everyone tunes in to see who won prizes, and the kids feel so good when TV shows theirs works completed.

Artists, please volunteer. The expansion centers will be in each village, with workshops in woodcarving, ceramics, foundry casting, gold and silversmithing, painting, animal husbandry, butterfly farming, tree-farming and creating the banners and awards to be given to eco-teams and individuals promoting the beauty of their area. Teachers needed. Spend 2 to 6 months helping Mother Earth. Get a beautiful Earthgardens Certificate and love of the children.


We're building INDIVIDUAL small FAIRY-TALE HOUSES in the gardens for the kids, fully practical, to stimulate imagination and creativity. Email me if you'd like to help. We want styles from Scandinavia, Russia, Mongolian yurts, African mud domes, etc, the best of each culture.

Street-theatre in rural villages, showing the stupidity of burning the forest just to plant soy or corn. Make the kids laugh as the deforesters get a big kick in the behind, Join now, artists!

Film-makers, join the eco-teams to get good footage. (see founder Daniel's message to green artists on this website.)

It works.

It works by itself and it works combined with human intelligence.

But what doesn't work is human intelligence disconnected from Natural law and ecological order. That, unfortunately, is what we have today, in this sick, adult-run world. Earthgardens societies will transcend such sickness with child-enhanced leadership..

Above: La China, one of the founding members. Baby rabbits were given to all the girls to teach affection and care. Thanks to the St. Francis school in Comarapa for providing them at 5 bolivianos each! (under a dollar)

New mind, Earth´s principal resource, horribly wasted today by adult-centered societies damaging to children..
