Full Moon Fire Ceremony
Oxford, Uk. Lots of root vegetables. Vegetables on wheels. Veg van, community. Summer 2013. ‘Cultivate is all about bringing people together to create a better food system for Oxford. Better for everyone who eats food, better for everyone who grows food, and better for the planet. 1. Make good local food fairly-priced, convenient and accessible for more people
We want to take local food to more people, working with others to increase direct sales of local food from 0.2% to 10% or more. Cultivate will take local food to the community with markets stalls and bike deliveries from online orders.
2. Support the growth of ecologically-friendly and sustainable farming
We need to encourage ecological farming and provide more models of how it can be done. We only stock produce that we are happy has been produced under such conditions and by working with other local organic producers we will strengthen the network for a local agrarian renaissance.
3. Bring people together to push local food forward in practical ways
Moving towards our vision in Oxfordshire depends on a movement of growers, consumers and citizens coming together to support a vibrant local food culture. As a co-operative, Cultivate will act as a bridge between these groups by providing a platform for action, as well as engaging people through retail, outreach, farm visits, volunteering opportunities and an active civil society presence.
4. Create training and education opportunities for a new generation of growers
We need to equip a new generation with the knowledge and skills necessary for a sustainable food system. We are investing in our own education and will pass on our learning through new partnerships with other local growers and organisations.
5. Do business in new ways that benefit and strengthen our community
We are joining a growing movement of social enterprises embedded in the productive economy but guided by the community and run for the greater good. We aim to be a model of co-operative enterprise, strengthening the local food economy by complementing and collaborating with other local food businesses in order to increase our collective reach and capacity.’

Kafe Bohem Menu
Smothered in easter european passion the czech-native run Kafe Bohem is located in my favorite DC neighborhood, Bloomingdale. The Kafe proudly serves vegetarian and vegan options to their traditionally meat-centric culture and don't even get me started on the espresso drinks. Kombucha and herbal teas are also good choices and don't forget to try the ever evolving home made Chai.
