We are in summer right now, so this information is super important. Download and read as soon as possible.

A finalized version is pending publication in print and on the web with a better layout and upgraded graphics. Until then, we thought it was important (urgent!) that you have this info right now while it’s hot, so here is a link to a download of the draft copy.

California Tastes Good

All cultivated foods have wild progenitors with origins throughout the world. Every place has birthed unique plants that have co-evolved with animals, including humans, to serve as foods for their region. Cultivated foods have been bred for taste, size, color and other aesthetics, but generally not nutrient density or bio-regional resilience, hence the large overhead cost of modern agriculture. Learning about native and wild foods is an easy way to stack nutrients and medicine production into your landscape in a beautiful, low cost, and low maintenance way. Join designer Ryan Serrano of Earth Steward Ecology for a talk that will focus on some of the lesser known, more accessible, unique tastes of the California flora.

Saturday November 5 Seri people at Tree of Life
Native Cultures - Seri People at Tree of Life Nursery
Tree of Life Nursery is honored to host a group of artisans from the indigenous Seri (Comcáac) tribe. Hailing from the arid coast of Sonora, Mexico, the Seri are famous for their amazing basketry, beautiful necklaces of shell, bead and bone, and elegant ironwood carvings. This special event will begin with a cultural exchange, as the Acjachemen people welcome the Seri to their ancestral land, followed by a traditional Seri dance and ceremonial songs. These Seri artisans will have their finest items available for sale, and in the spirit of “fair trade,” 100 percent of the sale proceeds will stay with the artisans. Stay tuned for more information.
