We believe that all people can attain health and happiness by living in symbiosis with our environment.
Sea otters are vitally important creatures who tend to the kelp forest and create habitat for a variety of sea life by voraciously hunting and eating sea urchins. Human beings too can act as stewards of the earth by nourishing ourselves with food that was grown locally in accordance with ecological cycles. Everyday is an opportunity to act as a keystone species rather than a parasite. Even the simplest, routine behaviors have the power to cultivate vibrant and diverse communities of life, from the tinest microbes to the most giant sequoias.
The future of food depends not on the next diet trend but on human awareness of our intimate relationship with the ecology. Our goal is to serve food that highlights the source of ingredients and uses care, appreciation and a bit of alchemy to imbibe the goodness of the earth. We promote health, ecological awareness, body positivity, traditional skills, clean living and conscious consumption through the ordinary act of eating. With catering, cooking lessons, consultations and natural products, we hope to feed populations large and small, locally and globally, by nourishing people, and empowering them to nourish themselves and their communities.
