Remembering What Matters: Isaac’s Café Specials, December 5-9

My family has had a few serious challenges in the past month.  Seeing all of my distant family in the face of an emergency helped me to remember that I’m not alone and that people can really come together when it matters, regardless of how ‘busy’ we think we are.  For the first time in years, […]

The Seeds That We Plant: Isaac’s Café Specials, November 28-December 2

I recently read a quote by Robert Louis Stevenson, “Don’t  judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.”  As someone who is responsible for utilizing what’s growing in Bernheim’s Edible Garden, I am sometimes guilty of focusing on the harvest.  I love seeing what is available for use […]

To Plant a Garden is to Believe in Tomorrow: Isaac’s Café Specials, October 31-November 4

The late Audrey Hepburn once said, “to plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” This thought came to mind as I led a tour of the Edible Garden this past Friday evening.  I love talking about what’s planted and what the garden has in store for us in the coming months.  Many were amazed […]
