Harvest Basket and Store Happenings for August 25th, 2020.
What a week we have had. From, extremely hot temperatures, rain, lighting, fires and smoke. This past week has definitely gone down in the record books. In the past 11 years, here at Nature's Touch we have never had to close our big roll up door. Well, there was a first... We had to keep it closed due to air quality. So, please if you see the big door closed, we are NOT closed , please use side doors. Our Store hours are :

Every Monday at 1-2pm and now every Saturday from 9-10am. Join us and call in any questions, I can answer about food, family farming & home. Home always being the Central coast of California.
Nature's Neighbor: A show that provides information on going back to our roots and our history to find ways of living in a community with less impact on it. Weather it is growing our own food, buying our neighbors food, building our own chicken pen or learning about what our other neighbors are planting, growing and harvesting in our community. Learning where our local harvest goes weather it’s to a local restaurant or beyond. Creating a sustainable health system within our community. Also, what it takes to survive from our neighbors, or what they have or had to sacrifice to get local food to your home or store. Join us for conversations of Health through food, farming and living through igniting the imagination of the neighbors of San Luis Obispo county region and beyond in creating a more sustainable food and life system.
