Agriculture and Community

The sky was thick with gray clouds last Saturday, but the air was relatively balmy and there was no rain to keep folks away from the January farm stand at Ocean Air Farms. 

Paul Madeira stood near several tables laden with winter vegetables: acorn and sweet dumpling squash, Brussels sprouts, Swiss chard, kale, beets, peppers, garlic and carrots. There were goat’s milk soaps, naval oranges from a family grove in Riverside and photos with Madeira and Julie Jo Ayer Williams’ 5-month-old daughter Naomi.

“More and more people are excited about eating good food,” Madeira said last week.

Creative changes to Client College

Church Notebook: Faith should bring people together

Faith: We practice our beliefs in many ways, from those with religions vastly different from our own to the lesser variations of denominations within the Christian faith.

The variations in what we believe can cause us to have all kinds of disagreements, from a simple argument here to the serious ones in the Middle East that literally are settled with the taking of lives.

Liz Ponder had seen the devastation wrought by the Boles Fire that swept through Weed at the end of summer, so when she and two other volunteers came with a truckload of toys on Christmas Eve, she was amazed by what she saw.

“Everything has been cleared out,” she said. “They’re starting to rebuild. It shows that in a smaller community everybody really pulls together to make things happen.”

Community servant Phillips honored

During the spring, summer and fall, Ron Phillips can be seen sporting denim overalls and a straw hat while he wanders the booths at the Crescent City Farmers Market.

At Christmas time, he dons a Santa’s hat and spearheads the annual toy drive. When he’s not doing either of those things, he is overseeing the Rural Human Services food bank and is a commissioner for the Crescent City Harbor District.

Exciting plans for sustainability in DN

Transition Del Norte organizer Dan Schultz is welcoming constructive ideas to make our community more sustainable. At the organization’s Jan. 7 meeting, Schultz announced that he wants to plant 1,000 fruit trees in Del Norte County, and he passed around a book of all the species that do well on the coast. 

Schultz has talked to Home Depot and Walmart to see how many trees he could get donated or at cost. He believes big corporations like to contribute to this type of thing. “It’s a feather in their cap.” He also spoke to Joe Gillespie, who said he can get a bunch of kids to plant and/or transplant the trees. Schultz wants to broker a deal with some big company that has access to trees and find some species that work here.
