Yesterday, 18 people came together. Dr. Liz Carlisle and students of her Transforming Food Systems seminar gathered to work in solidarity with us.

They arrived from UCSB midmorning with offerings for the land. She was offered soil, compost & vermicompost, leaves, branches, and flowers.

We sat together and started our work in heartfelt communion by highlighting strengths in each other. Movement began and farm tasks were divided into prepping cardboard, moving soil, tilling, and building raised beds. A beautiful flow was obtained. While in the thick of it, which was overwhelming, students’ motivation kept us moving forward. With everyone’s help, Saticoy Depot now has a safer, healthier area for growing and tending.

We are so grateful for the intention and commitment from all. We at Saticoy Depot walked away filled by the connections made. (Even if we didn’t get to talk to you in-depth, we recognized your contributions and were impacted by your presence.) Students shared insights and potential program expansions and, although we hope we provided some answers, everyone’s questions were so thought-provoking. We were left inspired to create more intention around gathering and growing.

Muchas gracias. Maraming salamat. We hope you feel as filled as us.

Wishing we could do this day all over again. We didn’t catch harvesting the bigger sweet potatoes on video, but finding these little ones was just as satisfying!

We decided to harvest these because we wanted to start our winter garden, but usually you would wait for the tops to brown more. Then you can chop the foliage off with clippers and go in with a garden fork or shovel to lift the tubers up.

We have been doing a lot of cleaning chores over fall and winter. We are recycling our potting soil to make new garden beds at the farm. We dumped the soil into a bin and were happy to find lots of worms because they are signs of healthy soil.

🪱 We were also happy to see that they were all native California worms! Woohoo!

We had some extra hands and a mushroom bed to build! You can see Josh here with his Tio Daniel topping off the bed with straw. (Be prepared, there’s also a conversation about mushrooms eating...horses? 😅)

Mushrooms can be grown in beds using straw or wood chips as the substrate. We are testing out Snow Oysters, which prefer straw, and we used the lasagna method to build the bed. We layered straw with Snow Oyster Sawdust Spawn from , then watered it in. This variety of mushroom grows well in 30-50 degrees, which is perfect as a SoCal winter crop. We should have mushrooms come the new year!

Saturday we hosted Free Breakfast & Community Care that ended up serving exactly 50 people!

🥣 We served Filipino Arroz Caldo, a savory rice porridge. We’ll remind you ‘til the end of time that it looks unassuming, but the spice from garlic and ginger along with the comforting chicken flavor will blow your mind. We provided an assortment of toppings so you could customize your experience too! We had eggs, soy sauce, lemons, green onions, and fried onions. (Fried garlic is where it’s at, but we used what we had.)

🧣 truly brought Community Care to the neighborhood. We saw young kids, parents, families, and elders find something to take home! Lots of blankets, jackets, wipes, and diapers were distributed out. In addition to these items, the holiday treats were VERY much appreciated. The star of the show were the Molasses Cookies, which were soft and chewy with crunchy sugar crystals on top 😍

🔨 We deeply appreciate the work that completed during the event. The unit now has a corrugated metal roof, which will protect the fridge from rain and other elements. It looks incredible! We always love having the building team over and look forward to seeing shelving come together next time!

This Saturday’s Activity Books are here! We are learning about 3 holidays celebrated this month. Check out the contents! 👇

Most of our community celebrates Christmas, so it is important to acknowledge the cultural traditions that our families celebrate. Here you can compare the different light decorations from Mexico and the Philippines.

Kwanzaa is a non-religious holiday created in 1966 to celebrate Black-American culture. Anyone can celebrate Kwanzaa! We have celebrated the Seven Principles for the last 3 years now. The Kwanzaa greeting is “Habari gani?,” which is Swahili for, “What’s the news?” The other person responds with the principle of the day like, “Umoja!” (Aka unity.) You can learn all of the Kwanzaa principles in the Word Search!

Hanukkah is the most-celebrated holiday by the Jewish community. We didn’t know the origins of Hanukkah and we learned it is a very important story about overcoming oppressors! All of the holiday’s foods, ceremonies, and toys help people remember the story of Hanukkah. Learn what some of these items are in the Scavenger Hunt!

🍠 The results are in! We weighed our top 3 sweet potatoes and the results are:
1.5 lbs
1.8 oz
2.3 lbs

😯 We couldn’t believe the biggest tuber was only about 2 pounds, so we reweighed it on a digital scale. It came out to 2.5 lbs, which is only 0.2 lbs off from what we got yesterday. (How does it not weigh more?!)

💚 We’re not out here to grow large vegetables, but not going to lie, we love getting these larger gifts from nature!

PLEASE SHARE! 🙏 We’re adding one last Free Breakfast to the 2021 calendar! We’re serving up Filipino Arroz Caldo, which is a chicken and rice porridge topped with fried and green onions. (Soy sauce and Saticoy Depot-grown lemons will also be available!)

will be offering free pantry foods, clothes and shoes (mostly for kids), and diapers and wipes.

Please reserve your free meal at the link in our bio or directly at bit.ly/holidayfreebreakfast. This will help us prepare enough meals for everyone, thank you!!!

“It was a corn leaf, dry and folded into a pouch, tied with a bit of string. She smiled and warned, ‘Don’t open ‘til spring.’ In May, I untie the packet and there is the gift: three seeds.”
-Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass (p. 129)

At our recent speaking engagements, we have been offering three seeds to our attendees. (We’re mailing some too!) They include the three sisters that create a milpa, specifically Festivity sweet corn, Provider bean, and Cinderella pumpkin squash. (Sourced from )

Three seeds alone might not seem like a large enough gift at first. The harvest will be limited. But they are enough.

In our experience, the greatest gift is in learning to tend and care. Appreciation grows for the knowledge each seed holds as well as the people who brought them together. They were from different places and together they are stronger. The wisdom they share together is also much greater than what they can share alone. Corn supports the bean’s vining, the bean feeds the soil nitrogen, and the squash helps retain moisture and keep weeds at bay.

We have so much more to continue to learn from them.

☕️ Cheers, community! We just hopped off our call today with , which was a great follow-up to our chat with students yesterday.

These were opportunities to interact with the knowledge we gained this past year as a decolonized urban farm. We loved being able to reflect and share.

If you have any lingering questions or just want to talk something out after processing your time with us, we invite you to reach out. Please also feel free to give us feedback on how we can improve for next time. (We love growth! 🌱)

🕯The altar is getting taken down today, and we will be returning the offerings back into the earth. Things like the candles and sage (an offering from ) will be fully burned, but the other items like corn, beans, squash, flowers, water, salt, and tamales (made by ) will be buried or given to the worms.

💀 is culturally-relevant for both Daniel and Sierra here at Saticoy Depot. Even though it started with the peoples in Central Mexico, it became a nation-wide and eventually a worldwide celebration reaching all the way to the Philippines. *Through colonization in case you were wondering how.* We tried to honor some original traditions as much as possible yesterday, but had to do some things differently due to modern times (like using a decorative instead of a real human skull!).

🙏 We really appreciate the community for helping us put this together from setting up to showing up. See you soon!

💪 Project complete! We pulled out the grass and layed down mulch.

📝 There were a ton of reasons we did this. Aesthetics and safety are high on the list. We wanted to remove the non-native grasses, while conserving water. We also wanted to create a good foundation to grow more food!

🌻 Our end of season harvest includes sunflowers. Did you know that the whole head is edible? Once the sunflower head is mature (but hasn’t fully gone to seed) you can cook it and eat it. You can eat just the cooked seeds by biting them off like corn on the cob or you could use a fork to pull them off the head. You can also go for it and eat the whole thing!

🧑‍🍳 To actually cook this, we start by seasoning the sunflower head with oil, salt, and garlic, then wrap it in foil. We cook the head in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

💡It is delicious and once you try it, we’re sure you’ll get a ton of ideas on how to add them to your favorite recipes.

Thank you for everyone’s smiles and energy at yesterday’s Free Breakfast! Some neighbors were generous enough to exchange gifts for their breakfast including this bracelet, soap, and body butter (w/CBD!). There were also some very kind donations that will go towards future community events.

Thank you also to everyone who spread the word about the event. We saw faces from all over Ventura County and ended up serving 71 meals and giving 43 activity books. We would not have been able to do that without you!
