Plant Based Spring Wedding at Home

The bride and groom met in yoga class. She was the teacher. He was crushing.

It’s time to say ” I do.”

The house, tucked in next to the San Gabriel foothills, was transformed to host an intimate gathering of friends and family.

This poppa had his hands full! I let the eldest know what a great job she did as the flower girl. I could tell it wasn’t her first time. Indeed, it was her second!

If you’re wondering if people actually use those parasols you’re considering for your sunny event… they do.

This was the highlight for me! An assortment of mini stuffed donuts from Donut Friend. All vegan, all delicious. 

Love this simple hand scripted table assignments poster.

The backyard had just enough space to tuck in about 80 guests for a vegan family style  meal. They raved! Even the most stubborn omnivores had a delicious day.  She YELPED us the love.  (review date 4.1.15)

Blessings for a long and lovely life together you two, enjoy the ride!

Grow! Event RootDownLA…Nuture a Garden

This young gentleman is a “Cultivar!” He is learning to plant,
cook and eat healthy food.  Help keep his garden growing -
Won’t you join us?

On May 2nd I am chairing the GROW! event for RootDownLA,
where we’re empowering teens to build healthier food communities
through culinary arts, urban agriculture and entrepreneurial training.

It started eight years ago with Ana and Karen, two  moms who had an impressive idea - they really represent RootDown and our mission, and they are still on the job and in the garden!  Read their story. It will soften your heart. 

Yes these cultivars plant, grow, harvest, and cook delicious food – they even learn to make jam and pickles…

RDLA broke ground in 2008, now we’re proud to say that the
cultivars run the day to day operations of the program. We’ve
worked with hundreds of teens already - I’m so proud of them I could pop
(and look like a crazy lady while I’m doing it!)

Here’s the ask - Please join our event May 2nd.  Yes we want your money, but even more, we want your voice. These teens are doing an amazing job – you’ll love each and everyone of them – so come help RDLA grow.
