Guest speakers included Victoria Bloch of the Weston Price Foundation on why farmer’s markets and whole foods are even more important now in the current economic climate, Jack Bezian of Bezian Bakery on probiotics and the many ways people have been misinformed about health and nutrition, and Mark McAfee of Organic Pastures speaking about SB201 fallout and the current state of raw dairy in California. Our very own Christine Chessen made a surprise appearance and shared how the state legislature was informed and positively influenced during the SB201 voting process through the strong grassroots organizing initiated by CReMA. She also announced the birth of the new CReMA website. The event was organized and hosted by Maurice Kaehler.
Maurice’s raw ice cream was the culinary hit of the event along with homemade cheeses, Jack Bezian’s sourdough breads and plenty of Organic Pastures Milk, chocolate milk, cream, butter and kombucha. A successful silent auction was held with donations of services, art, yoga classes, and gift certificates for OPDC grass-fed/finsihed meats, raw almonds and dairy and Bezian sourdough breads that brought in needed funds that will assist in CReMA’s gradual expansion.
