    STOP TALKING

    I am a high school ecology club sponsor who has fired up nine raised beds using organic gardening techniques. We are doing a community garden for families and our elderly. Thank you for inspiring us and helping us to garden. You are the best and are inspiring my students to produce their own food! Keep up the good work!

    To make foot/hand cleaning easier… make a mixture of Bronners soap and coconut oil (or use the soap alone)… rub it into your hands/feet BEFORE gardening or working on your greasy car. Rub it up under your fingernails/toenails. Wipe off excess, but DO NOT rinse. Cleanup will be MUCH easier.

  4. americanwillow on September 27, 2020 at 11:50 pm

    I wish you had answered my questions though. I don’t know many people with your knowledge about yacon. I guess I’ll figure something out.

    So Lauren is single? Tell her I said whats up.

  7. Gobi Grey on September 27, 2020 at 11:51 pm

    Hey guys, Lauren is single…

  8. De Biotuin on September 27, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    John, because of the quality of your videos and information, and because of your ability to even integrate personal stories and feelings into your videos, you are a continuing inspiration for me.

  9. Bill Hoegemann on September 27, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    do you still own your home in ca.

  10. miranda hermes on September 27, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    I’m sure they will get back together.They’re both beautiful people. Hey John, have you ever done any psychedelics?

  11. americanwillow on September 27, 2020 at 11:54 pm

    Noooo!! Sorry about your break up, John. Damn. I’m very sorry. You have a good face on for the camera. That just is heartbreaking for me and other people. 🙁

  12. 16brendalee on September 27, 2020 at 11:54 pm

    Aloha John! Sorry to hear that Lauren and you went your separate ways but I did see it coming. Not only did you two not have the same goals but I could see that you both had your own ways of doing things. You are very passionate about what you do and a perfectionist. Keep doing what your passionate about and thank you for sharing not only all this information on YouTube but your personal life of who you are and what you are going through. Still hope you join us in Hawaii when you settle down…, Aloha

    Hi John I didnt lime my soil and now find I need to. Can you ad lime to soil with veggies growing in it? Dont want to hurt my plants

  18. BetterYouBetterWorld V on September 28, 2020 at 12:02 am

    johnsonsn, we need to know about your opinion on too much organic matter locking out other minor but important things with too much Phosphorus since you are one of the few people who plant in that much compost when everyone else says to plnt in the soil and put the compost on top but no more than2 or 3 inches, and how do your fruit trees do in your potting soil we gotta know john we do lol

  19. Robert Guthrie on September 28, 2020 at 12:04 am

    Hey John I’ve been watching a lot of your videos. In one video you mentioned you use mykos, do you still use it? I’ve tried it so far this year with azos and a water filter and noticed a big difference in my organic garden

  20. Joseph Motta on September 28, 2020 at 12:05 am

    Hey John, You should definitely consider doing your farm and moving here to to Puerto Rico. I live here myself and can introduce you to others that have & are vegans and raw food eaters! I can also help you out in scouting some locations here that have great weather and good soil.
    You can reach me here at joemotta511@gmail.com

  26. Chris Hansen on September 28, 2020 at 12:14 am

  27. ben hartzel on September 28, 2020 at 12:18 am

    Relationships can be difficult because the society is shallow, unaware, uninformed, and confused. Being alone is nice for some time. We like to have ideals but we rarely live for the truth.

    Kicked her to the curb over lettuce he’s a savage.

  33. Hass moh on September 28, 2020 at 12:23 am

    John, with all due respect, I wish you put your ranting as disclaimer in the description instead of wasting valuable time! people who don’t understand in a few words, still wont understand it in a long speech!

  34. wallace animals on September 28, 2020 at 12:23 am

    Thanks for letting us know about the weather in Vegas next week, since we will be visiting! Pack light! I’m so sorry to hear about the break up. Keep your chin up and find the girl who is right for you.

  35. Rebecca Quate on September 28, 2020 at 12:27 am

    Hi John! We continue to expand our garden and incorporate it into the landscape; however, we are running out of sunny space. I would love to see some info from you on how to use shady spaces to grow food, especially areas under trees. Thanks!! You are the best!

  36. Papa Pepper on September 28, 2020 at 12:29 am

    It was great to bump into you today. If I make it back tomorrow, I’d like to talk for a bit if you’ve got the time, or maybe even do a quick interview with you. Keep doing what you’re doing!

  37. Pochy Rodriguez on September 28, 2020 at 12:29 am

    John , how do you spell your last name, are you on Twitter , WHAT’S your email address !!!!???? You keep saying your LAST name, but , I can’t figure it out !!!! Ok , Kohler , I found it on Instagram !!!!

  42. Aj's garden on September 28, 2020 at 12:36 am

    So i have been trying to make communication with you for some time with no results, since i relized you lived right behind my apartments. And that came with no successes after 2 months, even in the one you said you would look through for questions. So since i had no success and you seemed like such a nice person, and you said that you have people come over for tours of your yard i thought i might be able to catch you in town. So i tried to knock on your door i heard a dog come running up and a ladie say "shhhhhhh" to the dog and you say who is it. She then said "its some black guy", you then responded "well just dont answer it". You guys got silent. Then i said "you know i can hear you when you said that," i then walked to my car and left. Was just trying to say hello man.

  43. Nikki R on September 28, 2020 at 12:36 am

    What made you move from the Bay Area to Vegas?

  44. americanwillow on September 28, 2020 at 12:37 am

    And don’t bother e-mailing John through Fiverr. He doesn’t check that e-mail.

  45. Rich Laue on September 28, 2020 at 12:39 am
