As the days continue to get longer and warmer, we hope that everyone is taking this opportunity  to spend some more time out in their garden.  It's still a great time to be planting new seeds and little starts that will grow into beautiful fruits and vegetables for you to enjoy.  

The 2014 Roberts Creek Arts Festival (RCAF) is a three night and two day, low impact cultural event spotlighting local and international talent, along with local food producers being held on May 17-19, 2014.  

Thanks for coming to Earth Day!
