Whenever I walk through our tunnels I seem to always have a trail of thoughts that lead to reminding myself of where we are in human history. We have nearly perfected our knowledge on certain crops and now just dance with ideas on how to keep them producing at high rates for longer duration. It's easy to forget how strong the men and women were that got us to this point when food is always there. We may not have flying cars but we are definitely farming in the future and tunnel production is a strong reminder of our place in time.

Ecdysis Foundation announced last month the launch of a groundbreaking, multi-year project to use science, education, and monitoring to change agriculture in the next decade.

The rigorous 1000 Farms Initiative will be the most ambitious, focused inventory of agroecology to date, evaluating the power of regenerative agriculture on a network of over 1000 farms.

“For years, success stories about regenerative food systems and their potential for carbon sequestration, water retention, promotion of life, and profitability have been dismissed because critics insisted on data to ‘validate’ the impact of regenerative agriculture at a mass scale. This is that study.” - Dr. Jonathan Lundgren, Director of the Ecdysis Foundation

Through the 1000 Farms Initiative, Ecdysis will measure how agricultural management practices influence water, soil health, carbon, biodiversity, and economics and profit for food producers. Data will then be analyzed to show producers the health of their land, how their land compares with others, and how to incorporate regenerative methods into their agricultural production.

Learn more about this exciting project over on their website, ecdysis.bio ✨

In the olden days, the festivities of Christmas lasted twelve days. The final evening (January 5) was called “Twelfth Night” and marked the end of Christmas festivities and, in ancient Celtic tradition, the end of the 12-day winter solstice celebration. Traditionally, this eve before Epiphany (also called Three Kings' Day) was celebrated with king cakes, wassail, and pranks--such as hiding live birds in empty pie cases!

Medicine for seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and darker days 🌼
.
Our mental and emotional health is foundational to our physical wellbeing, and the world needs YOU, so whatever healing methods you have for helping your mental health, thank you for taking care of yourself 💚
.
A note here: therapies to treat mental illness are highly individualized, each person and situation are unique. People typically need therapeutic treatment beyond herbalism: this might include acupuncture, talk therapy, nutrition, supplements, or pharmaceuticals. Please do not judge yourself or anyone else for needing and seeking help, natural or otherwise!
.
If you're curious to try herbs, the sunshine-bright flowers of St. John's Wort are a traditional remedy for cheering the heart and mind as we slip into the season of snow—they ease sadness, depression, and winter-dark melancholy.
.
In combination with lemon balm, they are an uplifting medicine for those who experience seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
.
What helps you get through the darkest days of the year??

We devote a whole module to herbs that nourish a joyful, peaceful, and open-hearted state of mind in our 1,000-hour Online Herbal Immersion. Come take a peek:

The Legend of the Poinsettia as a Christmas Plant

The Legend of the Poinsettia as a Christmas Plant

The Legend of the Poinsettia as a Christmas Plant

The poinsettia is America's most popular flowering holiday plant! How did this tropical plant become the symbolic Christmas flower? Here's the fascinating story.

Yarrow may have been one of the first food-medicines eaten by Eurasian ancients. Traces of its leaves, along with those of chamomile, were found in the teeth of a 50,000-year-old Neanderthal man in northern Spain.
.
At an ancient Neanderthal burial site in Iraq, pollen grains from eight different plants were found scattered around the body of a man. Seven of those plants are still used for medicine today, including yarrow, marshmallow, and ephedra. The burial site is dated to 60,000 BC.
.
Information like this conjures fascinating possibilities about the lives of early humans. While it’s impossible to know for certain what perceptions they had about medicinal plants, it’s not farfetched to assume that our ancient ancestors had significant knowledge of the health-giving properties of herbs.
.
In my own apothecary, yarrow’s antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory actions make it valuable for resolving colds, flu, infections, clearing sinus congestion, and bringing comfort to painful symptoms. A hot tea of the flowers, combined with equal parts boneset and blue vervain, is an effective formula, especially when accompanied by a hot bath.

Our Story

Sage Hill Ranch Gardens is a first generation Market Garden, growing a diversified selection of vegetables and citrus fruits, in North San Diego County. We started our farm to rekindle the lost art of small diversified Market Gardens feeding their local communities with nutrient dense veggies, using deep rooted organic systems - doing so regeneratively and sustainably. There has a been a disconnect between farmers and their communities for sometime now, so we have set out to recapture it! In order for our farm to produce as much as possible, from such a small piece of land, we use intensive planting techniques - keeping our farm at just one acre of production.
