Slow Food saves the Gravenstein Apple

with 2 comments

In collaboration with the Russian River chapter of Slow Food and Sonoma county libraries, we explore a simple, clever program to raise awareness of a unique local treasure. In August, at the height of the Gravenstein apple season, free apples are given to library patrons, raising awareness of their taste and seasonal nature.

Blankity-Blank Potatoes & Produce

leave a comment »

RussianRiverTV visits a small farm on Blank Road in Sebastopol, CA.

Owner/Farmer Denny Hunt is a part time farmer with a day job and he chose to grow potatoes because they offer a generous harvest ‘window of opportunity’ and so allow time for the 9 to 5 side of his life. Join us now to hear about his start-up adventures and how he is amending the soil on the property that his family has owned for over 100 years.

Special Thanks to Phil Graf for Allowing us to use his archival footage.
