Ty's brother Dillion selecting produce for a customer.

Our Tomato Workshop was so well received that we have decided to host a workshop each Saturday in August. This weekend we are hosting a Sun Preserves Workshop. We were excited to welcome Ty Taube to his first farmstand, he brought a bounty of hand grown chemical free produce. Ty, along with being a superb gardener, is also a cook and has supplied zazu with veggies when they were out. He grows with a friend on Scenic drive in Santa Rosa. My sister Sarah ran the booth selling veggie and herb starts, backyard veggies, and berries from Sonoma Swamp Blues. I will be planting many of the starts that we did not sell at the Living Room Center, where I will be working with the kitchen to develop recipes and harvesting plans. We also welcomed the Ceres Project booth, staffed by Kristie and Ruby.  See the post below for Maile’s lecture handout.
