Russian River, ABC, Santa Rosa discussed on At The Table


Gifts. There. You pick opportunities from not just picking apples and pumpkins but roses eggs. All right. So you should understand folks that I have a woman I buy garden roses from when my parents passed I inherited a bunch of random things, including some really ugly Moreno glass. Forgive me, if I've insulted anyone my mom used to collect it. And so I gave it to this woman down the road in Duncans mills who has kind of an antique Curio shop. But she's also a flower farmer. And so for a year and a half after my mom passed. My mother was buying me. Gardiner isn't that wonderful? There's a real connection to those kinds of things in our community isn't there, and this is an opportunity to go and talk to the people who raised these things who nurture these things some of whom are second third fourth fifth generation farmers, right? Yes. And their tours and demonstrations and workshops, and it's really an amazing way to connect with your local food shed. Well, and and the point is that you can develop relationships that feed you all year long. The spirit and the soul. So what are the things? I like is I I'm complaining about this rather publicly with a polite and warm heart that the county doesn't really as a county officially in my opinion, and the impending many other beloved folk celebrate the harvest the way it should. But we're working on it. Everybody's working on it. And one of the things that's happened. Is there is a new event called honoring the whole animal? I love that a lot, you know, dusky ESTES, our friend from Zaza says that she raises her animals, very carefully and thoughtfully they have a wonderful life and only one bad day.
