I remember my mom asking me to go out to the family garden and pick veggies; tomatoes, and fresh greens for dinner salad, just out our back door, across the yard. My response, “I don’t want “that” food, I want to go to the market and get fresh produce and groceries”. How powerful is knowledge, that I would come to know that our garden was actually the “FRESH PRODUCE”. It has always been my goal to have a small garden again, where I can grow my own veggies, greens and herbs one day. After HUminerals’ visit with farm educator Marguerite Nesteruk (who we will visit with in our next Healthy Share), and One Gun Ranch, it is now at the top of my priority list. Living mostly in California, I am fortunate to have access to many farmers markets, which I frequent often.
To support the continued work of OGR and taste some of their delicious organic grown greens you may visit the following locations: Erewhon Organic Markets (Los Angeles & Calabasas), Vintage Organic Markets, PC Greens Market and OLLO Restaurant (formerly Coogie’s), all located in Malibu, California. I personally found a new favorite at the Ranch. Instead of mustard on your sandwiches, try fresh grown mustard leaf greens… all I can say is get ready for a new staple. YUM, YUM and more YUM!
Marguerite Nesteruk, Master Gardner of Permaculture
We will spend some quality time highlighting Marguerite in our next HUmineral Healthy Share. Marguerite says a huge part of her purpose is to educate kids and adults on sustainable gardening & nutrition and teaching the importance of how it connects with nature and man. We will learn about sustainable gardening, composting, and lessons of farm-to-table.
One Gun Private Ranch | Malibu, California
There were horses, dogs, goat, pigs and everyone of these animals were friendly and very loved. Most the animals roamed free, but as you see here even fenced the goats walked right up and ate out of your hand in a calm easy fashion. Beautiful!
