swanton berry farm

Swanton Berry Farm was founded in 1983 and at that time, no one had grown strawberries organically on a commercially successful basis. Five years later, Swanton Berry Farm would become the first certified organic strawberry farm in California (CCOF).

By far the BEST strawberries and organic treats on the coast.

Just sit there right now.
Don’t do a thing. Just rest.
For your separation from God
is the hardest work in this world.
Let me bring you trays of food and something
that you like to drink.
You can use my soft words
as a cushion for your head.

He whom I enclose with my name is weeping in this dungeon. 
I am ever busy building this wall all around; and as this wall goes up into the sky day by day I lose sight of my true being in its dark shadow.
I take pride in this great wall, and I plaster it with dust and sand lest a least hole should be left in this name; and for all the care I take I lose sight of my true being.

God has no body on earth but yours.
No hands but yours.
No feet but yours. 
Yours are the eyes through which She pours out
Compassion in the world
Compassion in the world. 
-Theresa of Avila
