Share a large fry and celebrate existence at Sequoia Burger, a national treasure ("Satisfaction," March 2).
Look into how much money winery owners are giving to Bill Dodd's campaign, and yet deforestation and pesticide/herbicide cancer rates are soaring in the Napa Valley ("Dodd & Country," Feb. 10). Someone is "bought."
I find restaurants with Coravin offerings have saved me from drinking either poorly chosen wines by the glass or the aforementioned poorly stored and cared for wines by the glass (Swirl, March 2).
We would like to address the issue brought up in the letter "Doing the Right Thing" (Feb. 24). It is true there has been a lack of participation in farmers registering with the water board, but the important question is, why? In complying with this registration request, farmers will be exposing themselves to being placed on a publicly accessible site, thereby relinquishing their privacy and being at risk of vandalism. While this waiver is indeed another step toward compliance, the lack of protection and safety for the farmers, their families and their livelihood is a major concern that needs to be addressed immediately.
We at the Sonoma County Growers Alliance (SCGA) are working daily to support farmers developing responsible best-management practices regarding the environment and their community. We applaud those that are taking steps toward compliance with the new laws. In order for the next generation of cannabis operators to be successful, it is imperative that people feel comfortable moving out of the shadows and becoming more actively engaged community members.
We at SCGA are helping to facilitate this transition and we appreciate the Bohemian for its continued coverage of cannabis happenings throughout the county. Twice a month, SCGA hosts educational workshops, the Learning Laboratory, as well as monthly social mixers for professionals across all industries to network. Representatives are in attendance at the board of supervisors meetings as well as local city council meetings keeping a finger on the pulse of the industry in Sonoma County, so together we can be informed and active in the formation of fair legislation.
