Week of July 11th

In the wake of disaster I was left to realize with a reminder of how overwhelmingly amazing our community is. I live up in Buellton, but after a fire burned through the Givens’ 25 year old home in Goleta this past week, people reached out from every nook and cranny of my life to make sure that we were taken care of. And we are. It will take a long time to rebuild what was lost and obviously not everything can be replaced, but it’s most important that our family is still together. We just need to keep going, as the farm work does not stop for anyone, and focus on keeping our community healthy and vibrant. We look forward to continuing to nourish you guys as you do everyday for me with your positivity and resilience. Thank you for being a part of our CSA program, continuing to support us at the farmers market and your local grocery store. We couldn’t do this without you.
We ended up with an abundance of basil this week on the farm. I thought it would go perfect with the eggplant and tomatoes in the box. Make sure to keep basil cool and dry to prevent it from wilting. We will pick it Wednesday morning to help ensure vibrancy when you receive it.

Week of July 4th

As we celebrate America and this phenomenal country of ours, it is a reminder to celebrate the people behind the scenes that make our country so great. Migrants and immigrants make America great because they made America. I personally, am deeply appreciative to all our workers that labor SEVEN days a week, without rest and show up every single day rain or shine. They represent the many sons and daughters of immigrants to whom we should be thankful — not only those who work in our fields, construction sites, kitchens and bathrooms but also those in the corridors and labs in our hospitals. I TRUELY believe that immigration is the cornerstone of what makes this country so prolific.
As we are enjoying all the abundance in our lives, let’s stop and celebrate our many cultures, races and all our differences. Most of us are descended from migrants and refugees and immigrants. This is who we are as Americans. And the best measures of our greatness are found in a history of respecting diversity as a source of strength.
