|Tip of the Week |
At the first sign of a cold, especially the wet "chilling" type, eat one or two cloves of raw garlic to boost your immune system and stop the cold in its tracks!
Garlic has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties that help fight infections. But be sure to eat the garlic raw; cooked garlic and "deodorized" garlic pills lack allicin, the compound that many scientists believe is responsible for garlic's "magic-like" powers.

Dancing Light RanchThe Hollywood Farmers' Market welcomes Dancing Light Ranch back to our November Markets as a craft vendor. For the last six years, Tanya Kern and her husband Don have been farming lavender in Corbett, Oregon on a small plot surrounded by 40 acres of forest. Though not certified organic, they apply organic and biodynamic principles to their growing techniques. Weeding their fields by hand may be a challenge, but they believe in giving back to the earth what they take.
Dancing Light Ranch grows three different varieties of lavender including Grosso, a variety used mainly for oil production; Provence, known for its for culinary uses; and Royal Velvet, an English variety deep purple-blue in hue that holds its color for years. Tanya began growing lavender just as a hobby. As her garden continued to grow and expand, she started making soaps and became interested in harvesting the oil. Today, you'll find natural, handcrafted soaps, skin salves, lavender oil and bath salts when you stop by the Dancing Light Ranch booth at the Hollywood Farmers' market.
Tanya was familiar with the Hollywood Farmers' Market from staffing a friend's booth and joined the market earlier this year as a nursery vendor. She is excited to provide her full array of products to market customers this November. She was drawn to the market because of the great community atmosphere and now enjoys the camaraderie with other vendors and shopping for essentials that she's not growing in her own garden.
In the near future, Tanya and Don look forward to planting a larger plot of lavender, increasing their lavender oil production and are entertaining the idea of opening their farmland for weddings and other celebrations.
Be sure to stop by Dancing Light Ranch's booth at the Hollywood Farmers' Market this Saturday and breathe in the lovely aroma of local lavender!
