On Tuesday, Grammy award-winning artiste @ZiggyMarley visited children at Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) to highlight the importance of healthy living. Marley – best known for his musical pursuits – has, in recent times, being a champion for organic foods. “Organic foods, that they can grow for themselves, is better for their bodies… better for their minds. It’s just a great way of life”, affirmed the reggae superstar as he gardened with the youngsters.

The LA-based musician often decries the deceptive best-practices of companies that produce genetically-modified foods. This led to the birth of several Marley-branded organic products, which he markets at www.ziggymarleyorganics.com.

There are two main lines:
1. Non-GMO verified Coco’Mon – flavoured organic coconut oils. The oils are cold-pressed from fresh coconut copra, unrefined, non-deodorized, gluten free and Kosher.

2. Non-GMO verified Hemp Rules – roasted, flavoured hemp seeds which are a source of easily digestible protein and Omega fatty acids. The seeds, sourced from Canada, are agricultural hemp and contain no THC and is also Kosher.
