Wishing you all a fun-filled summer 


Garlic Harvest: Best in 4 years thanks to our replenishing rains.

Our wonderful volunteer, Jamie Silva is learning how to process the
garlic once it’s cured (hanging to give aeration and moderate temps).
These heads of garlic have cured for about 5-6 weeks.

Lots of delicious savory garlic on the farm stand.
What’s New?
On the Farm:
The farm stand is always open every day.  It’s an honor stand so you just put your money in the slot. Chickens are producing so many delicious all organic, non-GMO eggs-we have an abundance of eggs. Currently we also have lots of zucchini and other summer squash, Santa Rosa plums, juicy, freshly-harvested garlic, and lemons. In addition we have spinach & herbs-mint, sage, oregano, thyme, rosemary and much more. We don’t put the spinach & herbs out because of the heat.  If you’d like herbs, just call us and let us know and we will prepare them for you.  (805-481-9205). Our summer vegetables are nearly ripe.  Soon we will have loads of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, melons and much more.
Take Huasna Rd. and follow the signs: Organic Farm Stand.

Events & Classes at the Retreat Center

Hatha Yoga with Nicole Chanley
Tuesday afternoons – 5:30 – 6:45. Only $12 a class!

About Gentle Hatha: This yoga class takes the push out of your day, using slow movement and breathing to gently energize muscles and joints. We will then dive into a relaxed series of grounding postures leaving the body stretched and refreshed. Classes will also offer opportunities for deeper breathing exercises and meditation.

Upcoming Events:

Full Moon Ceremony: Sunday, July 9th
The Full moon of July is called Thunder Moon by many Native American tribes; it was observed because this month is notorious for big booms of thunder and storms.  Also referred to as Full Buck Moon because deerbegin forming their antlers at this time of year.
This Capricorn Full Moon with Pluto lends itself to healing issues in need of resolution.  It’s a good time to come together to bond with community. Meet us at Branch Mill Organic Farm and Retreat Center to enjoy a potluck at 6:30 together followed by the ceremony at 7:00 pm.  Any musicians, songs, poems and sharing are warmly welcomed around the fire.
