By Dr. Karin Dina, D.C.Spring is in the air and gardening season has begun in our home! Some of the many joys a raw food enthusiast experiences in Springtime are: preparing soil in raised beds to grow favorite garden vegetables, choosing the perfect vegetable starts, then planting them and watching them grow throughout the season.

Feels Like Spring by kristin

The past couple of days have been relatively warm and sunny – in the low 60s here on the Mendocino coast. Hardly any frost on the ground for the past two mornings, after several weeks of frost covered grass. I’m sort of obsessively monitoring the daffodils in my yard – waiting for the first golden […]

To Be Organic by kristin

Listening to the recent controversy surrounding an NPR story about organics, I was amazed that the “scientific findings” in this particular study seemed to refute the idea that buying organic produce makes a difference to health.  And this in spite of a nationwide movement of people who are increasingly choosing farmer’s markets and locally grown […]

Summer Roses by kristin

There’s nothing like early summer – my niece Stella’s favorite time of year. Here in California we’ve got lots of blooming plants already and my all time favorites are roses – might be because I hark from the City of Roses, Portland, Oregon. The ones in my yard (I moved last fall) have been neglected […]

Sitting Here in Limbo by kristin

There’s something about this time of year – I sometimes feel a bit in limbo. I’m looking forward to Spring, and knowing that the season is almost upon us – only 18 more days until the Vernal Equinox. At the same time, Spring is not QUITE here. The sun actually looks a lot warmer than […]

Wild World by mary elizabeth

When I lived in Oakland, California I used to make a conscious effort to connect to the part of the world on which I was living.  It was pretty paved over and who knew if those weeds under the overpass were indigenous or not.  The estuary was right across the freeway from my loft, but […]

Giving Thanks by mary elizabeth

I was in San Francisco last week and had the opportunity to have dinner at Gracias Madre, the all organic, all vegan Mexican restaurant opened by the Café Gratitude people right smack dab in the middle of the Mission District.  Although it may not have blended perfectly with its surroundings, it certainly seemed comfortable there.

Goodbye by hilloah

I am retiring this week.  After a little over 63 years I will quit working for someone else and work for myself,  and Archie.  Whenever we watch Avatar ,  Archie and I walk on air knowing the importance of our job as caretakers of our land.  Now I, like Archie, will be able to do it 24/7. […]

Aaugh! by hilloah

We had a break-in this weekend and were robbed.  We went to harvest our organic corn and found only half was still there!  We had been hit by raccoons.  Aaugh!  They may be cute little buggers, but not any more!  Our goldfish are safe from them because we provide a four-foot deep pond for them and the […]

An Adventure by hilloah

This last weekend I harvested the last of the carrots.  Some were juiced (I love carrot and apple juice!) and some will be shredded and put in the freezer to make future carrot muffins.  Every Christmas I enjoy giving to others.  What will it be this year; loaves of carrot apple kuchen, cranberry walnut scones, or pumpkin […]
