Last night, we enjoyed co-hosting another sustainable workshop, "Healthful Home Fermenting: Kombucha and More" with Sustainable Contra Costa. Attendees of the workshop learned how two safely make kombucha at home from our fabulous instructor Jennifer Brennan, who gave everyone a SCOBI and starter to take home. Everyone loved tasting samples of pineapple and triple berry kombuchas as well as her delicious and healthy fermented cauliflower and zucchini. For more information on kombucha, please see this article from SCOCO's newsletter:
We have one more workshop in the sustainable living series, "Green Your Holidays," on October 18, before we start a new series in January 2019. For more information and to register for workshops, go to www.sustainablecoco.org.

Last Friday, the board of RRHC welcomed friends from PH Chamber of Commerce, PH Park and Rec and PH City Council; friends and neighbors; and members of Rodgers Ranch to an annual celebration and ribbon cutting for our new brick pathway. President Denise Koroslev gave everyone an update on our continuing renovations and fundraising efforts to raise the new barn. Guests checked out our beautiful new pathway with engraved bricks and new drought tolerant eco-lawn; munched on chicken salad, cheese and crackers, homemade apple cobbler and sesame sticks; sipped wine and John's fabulous quinoa beer; enjoyed live music from Dave Carter; and learned about future events and plans to replace the roof and paint the house, all while staying true to our position on the National Register of Historic Places. It was a lovely afternoon, and we sincerely thank all our wonderful supporters. Photos by Mark Jeffrey and Alison Clary
