Whole Foods Santa Barbara - the newest BAR in town

Yep. That's right. Looks like our local Whole Foods is creating a bar for beer and wine on-tap like some of their other stores, such as Austin (pictured below.) It will be located right in front of the meat department, so when you are waiting for them to grind up your beef, you might be able to savour a glass o' brewski.

Fairview Gardens

is looking for a few good farmstand peeps.

Fairview Gardens is a non-profit educational farm located in the heart of the suburban community in Goleta, CA. We are preparing to open up our store-front farm stand, last open in 2009!! Our goal is to offer up a space in which our community can get the best quality goods around, focusing on local artisans and farmers as often as possible. We are excited to establish our hub of wonder, the farm stand being not only a way to provide a one-stop-shop farm experience, but also a means of educating and welcoming our fellow land-lovers to this space. We are looking to hire 3 (three) clerks to work the farm stand: one full-time and two part-time clerks. To name a few, duties will include customer service, stocking of groceries and vegetables, and receiving orders. We are accepting resumes at this time and welcome you to turn yours in ASAP, as we are looking to open up ASAP. We welcome and encourage you to bring your resume in person, and come see the farm if you haven't already! Resumes are to be given to the attention of Adam Henry. We will also welcome resumes via Email. Thank you! Hear from you soon!

Bee Afraid....

very very afraid...for the bees. 
Bee populations are so low in the US that it now takes 60% of the country’s surviving colonies just to pollinate one California crop, almonds. and that’s not just a west coast problem—California supplies 80% of the world’s almonds, a market worth $4 billion. - quartz
