Sneak Peek:

Salad Mix


Turnips White



Bunched Onions



Fabulous Beet, Etc. Soup

beets, however many bunches you have, including tops





vegetable bouillon (or beef), 5 or 6 cubes

cream (optional)

Clean vegetables, then put in a large soup pot.  Fill pot half full of water, add bouillon cubes.  Boil until the vegetables are tender, let cool slightly.  With a slotted spoon, take vegetables from the pot and puree in batches in a blender.  Put puree back into the soup broth, stir.

Serve the soup chilled on a warm day.  If desired, add just a bit of cream to the soup before serving (about 2-3 tablespoons per soup bowl).

Queen of the Sun

Friday April 8th at 7:00 p.m.

Unity Church

227 E. Arrellaga Street

Please join us!


An award winning documentary film examines the global bee crisis through the eyes of biodynamic beekeepers, scientists, farmers, and philosophers. On a pilgrimage around the world, 10,000 years of beekeeping is unveiled, highlighting how our historic and sacred relationship with bees has been lost due to highly mechanized industrial practices.

Queen of the Sun weaves a dramatic story which uncovers the problems and solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.

This premier screening will be a benefit for the Waldorf School of Santa Barbara; we hope to raise awareness about honey bees, inspire future beekeepers, and make new friends. We are donating 10% of proceeds to Gunther Hauk’s Spikenard Farms, a non-profit devoted to bringing back the honey bee.
