Meet Jewel,

She is an amazing friend and a beautiful person. The organic soaps she makes by hand are are as unique and  wonderful as her one of a kind spirit.

Her products not only nourish the body, they also support ones intention to have a connection to the real people who are behind the products that are most intimate to us. Like food and body care. Enough said?

From Coconut Milk,  Lemongrass bars to Super Moisturizing Hemp Soap,  Jewel has stocked us with 5 kinds of hand soap. Here is the store preview link so that you can get more details on each of these new products.

The store opens for placing an order the day after your last pick up and stays open all the way up until Friday at 5pm. You can get to the store through this store link or by logging into your account.

Thanks to Suzanne Walker in Jamul and the Psalter family in San Diego, we finally are able to put together enough product to offer eggs in the store every week. We will sell them for 5 bucks a dozen. After having real eggs from happy birds, it is hard to go back to store bought. Just this morning, I went to crack an egg on the edge on the pan. I must have forgot who’s eggs I was working with, because I had to hit the thing three times before I hit it hard enough to break the egg. I tossed the shell into the empty compost bucket. The empty shell alone hit the plastic bottom of the bucket, and made a loud thud with the sound and force of a golf ball. Too funny!
