The "Party for the Planet" workshop this Thursday, October 24, has been cancelled but will be rescheduled. Look for a new date soon!
Everyone had a wonderful time at Harvest Festival this past Saturday! We had a beautiful day and an excellent turn out. Thanks to all our friends, family, members, and neighbors who shared the day with us! A huge thank you to all our community partners for coming to share information on their organizations and providing free, fun activities for families! Painted pumpkins left behind went to a good cause: We donated some to the Monument Crisis Center and others to an elementary garden class demo on seeds.

The ranch was hopping today with lots of visitors, including Community Service Day volunteers (thank you all SO much for your help with weeding, trimming, and beautifying the grounds!); several Scouts families led by Daniel Ramirez for his Eagle Scout Project (installing a new ramp at the farmhouse's back entrance, which was actually the original front entrance); and a mycology (mushroom) workshop, hosted by Rodgers Ranch Urban Farm and Bay Area Mycology Association. The Pleasant Hill City Channel visited and interviewed RRHC Board Members Denise Koroslev and Christian Rousset about plans for the barn, Harvest Festival on October 19, and more. We all greatly enjoyed having friends, neighbors, and volunteers spend their time with us and we appreciate all their hard work on the ranch! It looks amazing! Photos by Alison Clary
Anna Marie Beauchemin, clinical herbalist and founder of East Bay Herbals (EastBayHerbals.com) was our instructor for tonight's workshop, "Using and Preserving Herbs." Everyone enjoyed her extremely informative Power Point presentation before jumping in for the hands-on portion of the evening, Registrants chopped, grated, and sliced fresh ginger, garlic, and onion and added fresh herbs and apple cider vinegar to make their own fire cider, a savory concoction full of health and probiotics.
