Local Leaf Microgreens
Stop by one of our newest vendors this Sunday – Local Leaf Microgreens – for some incredibly nutritious, fresh microgreens! Did you know that that nutrient levels in microgreens can be up to 40 times higher than those found in mature greens? Microgreens are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and are an incredible addition to your lifestyle. Microgreens are flavorful, aromatic, and can easily be incorporated into your diet in a variety of ways. Supporting Local Leaf Microgreens also supports veterans – Local Leaf is part of The Farmer Veteran Coalition (Homegrown by Heroes).
The Farmer Veteran Coalition (Homegrown by Heroes) works with veterans in the food and farming community in all 50 states and U.S. Territories, to provide farming education, and veteran assistance to those in need. Our Farmer Veterans produce a wide range of food and fiber products, all of which are an integral part of America’s food system. Creating contact between our farmer veterans, and a sense of community amongst them, is an important part of our mission. Local Leaf Microgreens is part of this organization and is here to serve the San Diego community which has a large military presence. Albert Quinones (co-owner of Local Leaf ) is a Veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard and still serves as a civilian for the Department of Defense as a Firefighter Engineer on the military base San Clemente Island.

Helen Woodward Animal Center Pet Of The Week
Fish Sticks is Like the Ultimate Comfort Food
While Fish Sticks may appear to have quite the unassuming name, this big boy has a lot of personality. Basically, Fish Sticks is a 21 month old fluffy feline who knows what he wants. He enjoys nonchalantly leaning against his bed or the nearest wall and people watching, though he commonly falls asleep. Overall, Fish Sticks is like the best comfort food, you just can’t get enough of him.
He’s waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. His adoption fee is $171. He has been altered and is up-to-date on all of his vaccinations. As with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, he is micro-chipped for identification.
Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6523 Helen Woodward Way in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Monday through Friday 12 to 6 p.m.; Saturdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing). For more information call 858-756-4117, option #1 or visit animalcenter.org.
