Our community is a place for those interested in food, farming and health. The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt, nutrition education organization with over 450 chapters world-wide run by volunteers. We embrace the ancient wisdom of traditional cultures first shown by the research of Dr. Weston A. Price in the 1930s and more recently, written about in Sally Fallon’s book, Nourishing Traditions.
Our next planned FREE events are:
- Sauerkraut at Home (Sunday, August 23 @ 4pm). Register for Online presentation here. Now is your chance to make your own sauerkraut! Please join Jodi Ladetzky (a certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant and certified GAPS practitioner) for a free virtual experience making sauerkraut together. It will be fun and exciting (and a great opportunity to bring kiddos into the kitchen too)! She’ll be leading this virtual and casual session with step by step instructions. We will start with cutting the cabbage, salting it, then letting it rest while we chat about sauerkraut and the benefits it offers for the body. We will then resume making our sauerkraut by pounding the cabbage, adding in any extras (for flavoring) and jarring it. At the end of the sessions, you will have a couple jars of sauerkraut fermenting on your counter and all the knowledge you need to continue on your sauerkraut home journey.
- Salmon Creek Ranch (Bodega, To Be Rescheduled) Salmon Creek Ranch is an organic ranch that raises 100% grass-fed/finished Scottish Highlander and Angus cattle, New Zealand Kiko meat goats and ducks for their eggs. What’s unusual about the ranch is seeing the rugged cattle freely roam and forage around the property in a natural setting. The goats are grazed rotationally to clear the brush from the certified organic land.
As a local chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation we work to connect local farmers with consumers. We provide information on local sources of pastured meats, dairy and eggs, organic fruits, vegetables, grains, and how properly prepared foods may be integrated into your life.
Whether you are just starting on your path to healthy living or have followed the dietary principles of the Foundation for a long time, our chapter is a place to find local resources for nutrient-dense foods, traditional fats, bone broth, and lacto-fermented foods.
In Marin County, we are blessed to have an abundance of resources from local farms, ranches, dairies and farmer’s markets. Please see our Food and Resources pages for information about local food sources.
