Summer Solstice Festival

Last Sunday was the longest day of the year-it really was. And there was no better way to celebrate that than attending the 1st annual Summer Solstice Festival at the Wild Oats Garden. There was so much to do. We started off with some amazing dishes by fellow gardener Chef Paul Buchanan's Primal Alchemy Catering. Then of course we entered the "Guess the Weight of the Zucchini Contest" -something we are naturally good at. We visited the new heritage chickens and enjoyed some amazing live music . The Wild Oats Garden is administered by the non-profit Long Beach Organic and is truly a remarkable example of a community run operation.
