Sunset Open House

At the Sunset garden festival June 7-8 2008 in Menlo Park, CA, there were dozens of new green vendors.  This event is one of the best in the area and highlights gardening, organics, travel, building, and has many great seminars. Look for it in early June. There was a great presentation about bio-diversity and local wineries Sunset sponsors a well received Wine Club, it is important that they include additional information on this important topic.  Here is a general link for more information on biodiversity and organic wines http://www.ecowine.com/organic.html. Biodynamic farmers have started a “grass roots” organization as well.
