Dear Members,
    So many of us in Sonoma County are saddened to hear the losses of our neighbors in Lake.  Our friends have lost houses and businesses, our colleges have lost  ranches, livestock.  We all have lost the infrastructure of Harbin Hot Springs.  
     On Sunday a few of us farmers and chefs wondered what we could do to help.  The idea of hosting a benefit dinner at the Sebastopol Grange  took shape and generosity took over from there.  
     Please join Laguna Farm and a huge contingent from your agriculture community at the Sebastopol Grange 6000 Sebastopol Ave (aka Highway 12) on Thursday 9/17 at 6:00 to raise money for the fire victims of Lake County.  Yes, that is tomorrow night! Marianna Gardenhire, chef from Backyard Restaurant and Rob Hogencamp, chef from Sonoma West Medical Center are leading a crew of volunteers to cook up an amazing meal.  This “pay what you can” dinner will be well attended and we strongly suggest you car-pool or keep an ear out for remote parking with shuttle service.  We are still in the planning and organizing phase of this quick response and hope you join us in the effort to support our neighbors, our community and each other. 
     
     Be Well,
     Jennifer Branham


Produce Box Contents:
Salad Mix, Carrots, Zucchini or Cucumbers, Potatoes, Parsley, Kale, Green Beans.

 

So many people wonder what to do with this huge bunch of parsley.  The simple answer is Parsley and Walnut Pesto.  This recipe from Simply Recipes is easy, tasty and freezes well too.  Try it over raw zucchini noodles made from a Veggetti.  It also is perfect on crusty toasted bread, pasta or your fresh dug Laguna Farm potatoes!


Juice Box Contents:
Carrots, Strawberries, Melon, Kale, Parsley, Gravenstein Apples, Cucumbers.
A handful of parsley flushes our impurities
Parsley, a SUPER-FOOD!
Parsley to us juicers and super-food eaters is not a garnish, but rather an ingredient for health and well-being.  Juice parsley with carrots, apples, cucumber and kale to make a green juice with just enough sweetness and body to make you want a second cup.  Parsley coagulates, so give our juice a good stir and juice it first followed by a cucumber or root to flush it out of your juicer.  Enjoy!
