Earth Harmony Organics Farm is the outgrowth of Global Healing Center’s commitment to ecological, organic, and sustainable cultivation and living practices. In short, it is our attempt to practice what we have taught and exemplify how to work with the land in a harmonious fashion. Our recently-purchased property in southeast Texas is in the process of transformation from rich, fallow earth into an organic medicinal herb farm and educational center. We will be intimately involved in the growth of our premium grade, organic, all-natural herbs, able to delicately nurture them from planting all the way through harvesting.
Our master herbalist, Dr. Edward Group, incorporates ancient cultivation principles honoring the sun and moon cycles. He hand picks the seeds to infuse them with maximum energetic and therapeutic value, an essential part of producing an extremely powerful herbal product that will maintain consistent potency throughout its lifetime. Earth Harmony Organics is destined to produce the finest quality biodynamic, organic medicinal herbs combining earth based agriculture with contemporary and advanced growing techniques. Of course, our adherence to organic principals means we will strive to use GREEN technologies that reduce any strain on the local and global environment. We strive to create a model for future farms and green projects not only by demonstrating sound practices but by instilling love and health in every seed planted and every herb picked.

Meet our Master Farmer
A 7th generation Texan, born and raised in and around Houston, Russell Johnson has been passionate about natural agriculture his entire life. He spent his childhood tending biodynamic compost piles and food gardens with his Grandfather. At the age of nine, armed with an Apple II computer and a growing, personal collection of texts, he began compiling his own herbal database.
By the time he was a teenager, Russell was fully ensconced in the 2nd generation of the ‘new’ organic movement. He was active in the community and fully immersed himself into a number of horticulturalist groups where he learned and soaked up information. For years, he focused his studies on the eclectic branch of herbal medicine and medieval alchemic herbalism and was later introduced to Ayurvedic and Chinese herbalism.
By the late 1980's, Houston Texas was home to many amazing people who were actively changing face of agriculture. It was during that time that Russell began working closely with a number of accomplished PhDs who took him under their wing and helped him learn about the cutting edge discoveries in agriculture research.
While teaching and working in the vitamin and nursery industries, Russell continued his education and provided organic crop consultation for the Texas gulf coast region. “I’m happy to be one of the few Deep Organic farmers in Texas, and I’m proud to be at GHC among a proven team of industry leaders”.
Meet our Facility Manager
A self-made, jack-of-all-trades, Jason Leims is integral in keeping the energy flowing at the Earth Harmony Organics farm. Born in Kansas City Missouri, Jason moved to Texas at the age of 5 and immediately indulged in the music and arts scene.
By the age of 12, he was apprenticing with a highly respected artist who would serve as an important mentor during those formative years.He credits the experience for igniting his passion for old world craftsmanship and healthy living; two specialties he has made into his life's work.
Not only has his determination and drive given him a solid foundation in industrial mechanics, Jason is also an expert in several green-focused fields including bee keeping, gardening, alternative construction and energy production. Quite simply, there's not much this father of two hasn't tackled.
His positive and spiritual presence is the driving force behind the love and care that governs over every square inch of our bio-dynamic farm. "My goal is to share and contribute in any possible way to better the health of body and environment. Your imagination is my inspiration." -J.Leims
