About Organic Living
Jai McFall, the founder of Organic Living, Inc has been an organic gardener for over 50 years and an organic landscape designer for over 30 years. McFall grew up on an organic farm in rural Michigan where her parents taught her self-sufficiency. The family grew fruits, vegetables, berries and nuts; canned and froze their produce; made pickles, and baked their own breads and cakes.
In 1986, McFall purchased the family farm from her parents and continued to grow organic crops there until 2001, when she sold the farm to follow a dream to help others. As part of that, she moved to Clearwater in 2005. She started her gardening business in Clearwater because so many people asked her about the phenomenal success she had with her home gardens. They wanted her knowledge about how she raised pest-free, abundant fruits, vegetables and other plants and McFall founded Organic Living in 2010.
Organic Living teaches how to restore the quality of the topsoil so that it contains all the minerals and microorganisms which are essential for healthy soil and healthy food; how to grow nutritious, delicious and healthy food in back yards, community gardens and Community Supported Agriculture Gardens and to supply organic, healthy plants, and soil conditioners to customers. Organic Living sells whole plants that customers can take and plant on their own. Organic Living also offers organic garden landscaping.
|Did you know that here in the US:
- Every 2 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer?
- Alzheimer's is currently ranked as the sixth leading cause of death?
- 36 Million people have diabetes?
- 60% of adults and 30% of children are obese
- 70% of Americans take prescribed meds for chronic pain or illness
- Every 4 minutes someone dies from prescription drugs?
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states, “Chronic diseases and conditions-such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and arthritis- are among the most common, costly and preventable of all health problems.
Why is that? Our food, even from “health” stores no longer has the nutritional value it once has. And processed foods lack vital nutrients and contain additives that are toxic and addictive.
- The result is an unhealthy population spending billions on unworkable solutions.
- People are dying every day from preventable diseases
- People are suffering daily and not enjoying their lives
- Many people are stuck on the merry go round of drugs and surgery and the cost is killing or bankrupting them or both.
Our mission is to provide affordable and sustainable alternatives to mass market plants, vegetables, fruits, and herbs along with educational resources on nurturing the customer's investment. We desire to uphold our reputation by providing the best customer service in sales, landscaping services, and educational seminars held at Organic Living. Our market is any individual consumer that wants control over where their food comes from. Our customers want organic plants, vegetables, fruit, and herbs that they can trust have been grown to organic standards. We also serve individuals that want a backyard garden of fruits, vegetables, and herbs with landscaping services. In addition to these we serve customers wanting to be educated on the benefits of living organically. Organic Living is seeking funding for start up costs which generally include but aren't limited to: purchase and development of farm land for organic plants, vegetables, fruits, and herbs; purchase of Bio-Char mine (information attached) and mineral rights; purchase of multiple plants, vegetables, fruits, and herbs; capital for overhead and salaries.

Why am I passionate about this: As a child I loved nature: birds, exploring, looking at the world through my microscope and doing chemistry experiments. I took all the math and science classes I could in high school. After graduating I went to nursing school. I loved learning and asked a lot of questions.
I am determined to help exhausted people regain their vitality, so they can take back their health and create the life they desire.

|One of our amazing products is “Wellness Tonic 48”, it removes toxins and restores vitality to people. Here are what people say about Wellness Tonic 48:
I use Wellness Tonic to help my body remain clean & strong. I work for a large university. Many are sick there and I have remained in good health. I am 60 years old, I eat clean & am on no prescription medications & feel great. Thank you!
Using Wellness Tonic we boosted mum’s immunity after her two operations, and it helped me with clarity of mind and vitality in hectic city life. I won't go without it!
I got a bottle of the Wellness Tonic for my mother who was suffering from various ailments. For the past few years, she has been dealing with kidney failure. She went to her specialist and was informed that her kidney is working normally now, and the doctor was amazed. My mother's health is turning around. I am elated she is feeling better.
- Craig R.
I was going through menopause with all the symptoms such as hot flushes, sleeplessness, joint pain, tiredness and generally just coping with my day to day activities. A friend suggested that I try Wellness Tonic. The first day I had so much energy. I have now been taking the product for 4 months and feel like a normal person again. Now at 53 I have boundless energy, function after 6 hours of sleep, have no more sinusitis and very little joint pain.
One of my patients used Wellness Tonic for a dental infection. I saw the biggest change in one month that I've ever seen with anybody under any conditions.
