This eBook is dedicated to The Big Creek Sasquatch of Cross Over and Kenaf Partners USA.
In collaboration with New Earth Ministries, they are at the forefront of opening the world’s eyes to the revolutionary plant kenaf.
New Earth Ministries is a Private Member Association dedicated to the advancement of New Earth technologies for the creation of an abundant New Earth.
Kenaf Partners USA is a provider of introductory and commercial quantities of kenaf seed.
In collaboration with others, they are also on the forefront of kenaf research and development for growing, harvesting and product uses.
So, how DOES one say the word kenaf properly?
You pronounce the word kenaf like this: ke-naf´ with the accent on the second syllable. The e has the sound of a short u as in “cut” and the a has a short vowel sound for a as in “raft”.
And just what IS kenaf?
Definition of kenaf: an African hibiscus (Hibiscus cannabinus) widely cultivated for its fiber; also : the fiber used especially for making paper and cordage 1
In other words, kenaf is a plant that can be used for many important things like rope or paper.
But kenaf is much more than that.
That is what this book is all about.

Here are some facts about kenaf:
Where did kenaf come from?
It came originally to our world around 4000 BC apparently from the Sasquatch to the continent of Africa. Since that time, the plant has been found in Asia as well as North and Central America.
Now the plant is being grown all over the world. In fact, it is cultivated (grown and raised for its products) in over 20 countries. As mentioned in my Sasquatch Series it is an extremely valuable staple in the land of the Sasquatch called Cross Over.
What kind of plant is kenaf?
For our purposes here, kenaf is an annual plant.
An annual plant is a plant that grows and has seeds, and then, within a certain time, it dies. The plant is only productive for one season or a year.
Thus kenaf is an annual plant, meaning that it grows from a seed and then dies each year after it is through with its productive cycle.
Other annuals might be cucumbers, corn, beans and peas. They all grow and produce for a certain time or season of the year, usually in the summer when it is warm.
Why is kenaf making a come back?
Kenaf was once a desirable crop in the developing countries. A developing country today means those countries that are economically developing such as many countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Oceana. Developing countries are somewhat dependent upon other countries to keep their economy sustainable or maintainable.
Kenaf is an important crop due to its resistance to disease, no fertilizer, little water needed to grow it, and its multiple uses.
What products can be made from kenaf?
Kenaf fibers (either coming from the bark or stem) can be used in many ways, such as:
-building materials— for example: particleboards, panelling, wall paper backing, certain furniture materials, and kenafcrete blocks
-bedding materials for livestock and pets
-bags or purses
Food for human and animal consumption

Other facts about kenaf:
-a member of the hibiscus family
-is related to okra and cotton
-grows well in the US
-can replace trees being cut down for wood and fiber material
-the plant can grow up to 20 feet high in 4-5 months
-yields 6-10 tons of dry fiber per acre which is 3-5 times more than for pine trees, which take about 7-40 years to reach harvestable size
-many different varieties of kenaf will perform better in certain climates and conditions
-can be used as a rotation crop for corn, soy and cotton
Six reasons why people should think about planting kenaf:
1. It is multi-purpose. You can get more than one product from the plant.
2. It grows and matures in several months rather than years.
3. It is healthier for people and the environment. It can remove poisons and other unhealthy toxins from the soil.
4. It is a natural product— edible and not man-made.
5. It takes less space to grow for the amount of products it can produce.
6. Kenaf is a new cash crop for farmers and local economies
You can probably think of many other reasons why this plant is so versatile and helpful.
Some Fun with a Kenaf poem:
The air dawns fresh
and pesticide free,
the cattle are happy
and the meat is lean.
Bugs in kenaf are hardly seen—
we’re two feet high in dollars green.
Come! Look at the kenaf sway,
our Hibiscus plants will bud one day,
looks like we'll have good jobs that stay—
four feet high and plenty.
We can feed it to the goats
and the cattle, too.
We can make it a salad easy to chew,
it's growing every day about an inch or two—
five feet high in the morning dew.
Well, the blooms are full out on the stem,
we gotta choose our medicine,
it can cure our gas and bilious phlegm—
they’re six feet high as we’re picking them.
The inner core can make cements,
fiber boards with mold defense.
We can fashion cloth and weave our fence—
eight feet high they’ve grown immense!
The air smells fresh
and pesticide free,
the cattle are happy
and the meat is lean.
Bugs in kenaf are hardly seen,
we’re ten feet high in dollars green.
Hey! The crop's all stored cash and feed,
our soil's enriched for next year's need.
We’ll move beyond Monsanto's greed—
Twelve feet deep in Kenaf seed.
Hey! We’re twelve feet deep in Kenaf seed.

This book was created in partnership with New Earth Ministries to help expand awareness and development for growing kenaf and for the production of kenaf products.
Co-Author Richard Rensberry, a messenger for the Sasquatch, has joined forces with Founder of kenafpartnersusa.com , Robert Lawrason, who is home based in Onaway, Michigan. Robert is in collaboration and partnership with many others who are located in 26 states and across the world.
‘I put nature to work so that we have lots of different varieties of healthy foods to eat. I figure out ways to provide all the things in life we depend upon from our land. I work to make it look pretty. Once nature arrives in all of its various forms to co-habit with each other, they will stay, raise their families and provide for each other and us humans, too. When this happens we have lots of time to play, do art and other things we want to do.’
Mr. Lawrason is working with Artists, Scientists, Leaders, Teachers, Entrepreneurs and Investors as a visionary guide and team builder for projects that can help make this a better world.
