the cook I became amazed by the experience of a simple meal in a beautiful setting, when I was an 18 year old exchange student in Mexico. How could tortillas, beans and coleslaw on the beach in San Blas taste so good? That was the local, organic and scratch cooked food of the 70’s. I went to college for a masters in nutrition all the while avoiding my destiny as a cook. I wanted to be bona-fide, I wanted to have a profession. coque iphone 6 After eating well in San Francisco and Seattle, I had the guts to follow my passion and I returned home to Ojai and opened the City Bakery-Cafe in Ventura in 1988. I was running the bakery in Ventura and bought organic vegetables from Steve at the Ventura farmers market. I visited his farm in Carpinteria and remember saying to him, “Wouldn’t it be great to have a restaurant on a farm?” We were both married to other people at the time, but a decade later, when we were both divorced, we fell in love at the Ojai farmers market, this time while buying kabocha squash. On a trip to San Francisco we bought this now much despised 7 dollar organic tomato and thought if we had both a farm and a store we could save people a lot of money… coque iphone en ligne it took us 9 years to make any ourselves, but that is ok because we are dreamers and we’ve had alot of laughs along the way. coque iphone soldes the farmer An adherent to the organic farming movement since the 1960s, I now farm on 12 acres (CCOF certified) in Ojai and now devote a lot of energy towards training farmers and consumer education. vente de coque iphone Four new organic farmers in our area formerly worked for me. coque iphone 8 The farm is an open resource and the CSA program includes a large number of volunteer harvesters, long-term and one-time participants. I am the president of the Ojai Center for Regenerative Agriculture and the former president of the Cornucopia Institute. coque iphone I attended Harvard College for only one year due to my innate curiosity. I have a degree in Literature from The University of California at Santa Barbara. I have been active in organic certification and public interest policy in Carpinteria at CCOF, as a Santa Barbara farmers market officer (P, VP) and board member, at the Texas Department of Agriculture, as a founder of the Organic Farmers Marketing Association (VP, T), as an associate editor at ACRES, USA (1998-2007), organic administrator and inspector for many private organizations in the US Midwest, even an FDA delegate to the UN/FAO Codex Alimentarius! I write and speak Spanish. My favorite color is white, favorite vegetable the cucumber, favorite book All Quiet on the Western Front, favorite film Dr. Strangelove.
Foragers brings clean and ethical food of the highest quality to our customers by shortening the distance between farm and fork. We believe that it is worth going the extra mile to find foods that are healthy for human, animal, and land. Nine years ago in DUMBO, Anna Castellani, Richard Lamb and Clifford Shikler felt that their up-and-coming Brooklyn neighborhood needed a place to buy fresh and healthy food. They decided together that the only way to find such a market was to create one. In 2005, Foragers opened its doors to a pretty skeptical crowd. coque iphone soldes At the time, small, independent markets like Foragers were a new concept, and people were not as interested in sourcing and growing practices as they are now. Over the years, as people became more savvy about food quality, neighbors grew to count on Foragers to be a reliable source for healthy food. In 2009, we even established our own farm in Canaan, New York to help meet our customers’ demands for local produce and pastured eggs. coque iphone 7 Soon we were looking to expand to a second location and chose Chelsea because of its diverse, vibrant community. coque iphone 2019 pas cher We were lucky to find a big enough space to house two more of our dream concepts: the Table, which is our farm-to-table restaurant, and Foragers City Wines which carries mostly organic, sustainable and biodynamic wines. Two markets, a restaurant, a wine store, a delivery truck and one farm later, Foragers is dedicated to bringing food of the highest quality to our shoppers. coque iphone 6
