Lance and Tammi (of the Waldron Dairy and Lance’s Farm Vittles) recently lost their hay barn to a fire. Insurance will only cover a portion of the cost of rebuilding. They are working hard to make repairs so they can put up hay this winter and continue to care for their animals.
Lance and Tammi have given much to our community by producing healthy local food and serving in leadership roles with area non-profits, including the North Coast Land Conservancy and the White Clover Grange.
This is our opportunity to give something back to a wonderful farm family who helps keep us deliciously fed!
In gratitude for your support, the White Clover Grange will host a feast featuring Lance’s Farm Vittles this fall.

What is River Community Meditation?
To enjoy all our gifts, together, in silence…
Witnessing what is arising and passing through us…
the joys and sorrows and inspirations…
Seeing clearly and allowing space for the pain in ourselves…and others.
Developing kindness as the capacity to feel and offer what is needed.
Sharing, to celebrate this one precious life…
Everyone has a gift for something, even if it’s the gift of being a good friend. -Marian Anderson
I am offering my healing work in Manzanita this Fall and I wanted to invite you to check out my website if you’ve been looking for guidance and support during these potent times. I am a Holistic Wellness Mentor, an experienced practitioner of Daoist Medicine, and my approach to healing is centered in the art of living.
I am honored to have been asked by Danielle Melanson, LAc, to step in while she moves in the direction of her next adventure. I will share space with Chiropractor Dr. Heidi Olejnik, and massage therapist Elisha Rose near the beach at the end of Laneda. I will be there for next 3 months.
If this calls to you, please be in touch. I have openings for private sessions on the following days:
0R – $25 per banana box full ( your choice of items)
50% off daily through Saturday
Racks, store fixtures still available
Stunning original artwork at very reasonable prices. Embellish the walls of your home with color and feed your senses.

Artists’ statement: ALXSw –
“Studying martial arts introduced me to Shodo and Zen traditional works. I’ve been deeply impacted by studying the use of empty space in the works of Zen Reishis. Additionally, the placement of an artist’s chops (the red seals) are the final balancer of a composition. Like most 2D arts the first works of a student of Shodo (the art of the brush) are precise, structured, predictable as identifiable kanji or phrases, as with realism in western painting; the orange in a bowl is predictably recognizable. There is no strain or inquiry required to extract any particular meaning.”
Artists’ statement” George Wilson –
“I paint watercolors, soaking the paper, sometimes on both sides and applying washes of color and tone wet on wet to create atmosphere and form. As the paper dries I add detail and structure using sketchbook and memory as source material. I like to paint the shapes of birds and sea stacks; the vertical staccato of old river pilings, the wake of ducks on the river.”
Artists’ statement: Kopali Serna –
“This series explores the story of a hearth that lay frozen for generations but has undergone a time of thawing and regeneration. I conceptualized the series from my perspective as a self-taught indigenous artist, at one point separated from my traditions through the impact of colonization, but now intuitively and joyfully rejoined.”
The gallery is free and open to the public.

If you are suffering from the summer’s long days of working and playing- our visiting massage therapist this week may be your ticket to a more mobile and pain free August.
Alexi Hedlund has 13 years of massage experience with a specific focus on pain relief through a technique called Ortho-Bionomy.
When the body is stressed and out of balance, it will adapt as well as it can, but in the process it can create coping patterns of even greater stress and dysfunction.
Ortho-Bionomy is an elegant technique that works with the nervous system to cue your body’s self-corrective reflexes and allow tension patterns which are creating pain to relax, reset and reorganize.
Because the principles of Ortho-Bionomy work with positions of ease rather than force, most people find a session to be comfortable and relaxing while offering massive benefits.
It’s especially useful for dealing with mysterious symptoms or conditions that elude other successful treatment.
Whether your looking for relief from specific injury or a way to ease chronic pain and stress, Ortho-Bionomy can be beneficial.
Ortho-Bionomy works effectively with:
Back, neck and knee issues
Acute and chronic pain
Limited Range of Movement
Sprains and strains
Common benefits of Ortho-Bionomy:
Greater ease of movement
Interruption of the cycle of pain
Supports healing from surgery
Compliments physical therapy
Reduces muscle tension
Book your 60 or 90 minute appointment with Alexi this Thursday or Friday from 10am- 6pm at North Fork 53 Communitea Wellness. Link to book below.
