Turn Off the News and Build a Garden

Turn Off the News and Build a Garden

April 07, 2020

One of the favorite things I have seen in the past week or so was a short video made by Willie Nelson and his sons in which they introduced a song called “Turn Off the News and Build a Garden.”  That is sound advice, which I actually took to heart about 40 years ago.

Let’s All Imagine Together the World We Want to Create

Let’s All Imagine Together the World We Want to Create

March 31, 2020

These are challenging times for all of us.  While everyone has deeply held thoughts and feelings that are needing to be expressed, I want to send out two short messages.  First, I would like to ask everyone to join me in imagining the type of world we wish to emerge out of this crisis.  Do we want to create a world of isolation and separation, where neighbor is pitted against neighbor, or do we want a world of connectedness and compassion?

In this time of stress and confusion, I wanted to share a heartwarming story that was made possible by you, our customers.  As I have said, one of our core missions is to help small farms grow, prosper and, if possible, convert to biodynamics.  We just received word this week that Red Range Farm in Pennsylvania has received its official Demeter certification, meaning, it is now a recognized biodynamic farm.

Six Strategies to Keep Your Immune System and Detox Pathways Strong

March 17, 2020

Clearly, everyone’s attention is on the current crisis going on worldwide.  It is important to remember that our immune system is largely responsible for clearing toxins and “debris” from our cells and tissues. The less burdened our bodies are with toxins, the better we can respond to microbes and other outside pathogens.  With this in mind, here are the six things I do to try to keep my immune system and detoxification pathways as strong as possible.

Add Roots to Your Winter Soups!

January 13, 2020

Now is unquestionably the root-vegetable time of the year.   In our Napa Garden, we are still able to harvest beets, carrots, Brussels sprouts, tree collards and a few other scattered roots popping out of the ground.   Our fall plantings of celeriac, rutabaga, watermelon radishes are all gone and have found their way into our early-winter soup pot.   Luckily, unlike in previous years, we have the dried versions of these vegetables to substitute in our hearty soups and stews.  It’s hard to explain why, but there is something in these hardy root vegetables that simply feels right this time of the year.
