I was elated to read this morning that a resort just a few miles from my house (and a place I LOVE to stay at) is going to be a pioneeer for the organic movement by going all organic. The resort is called The Boulders. An establishment right next to the resort called El Pedegral, is actually a Farmer’s Market and festival that offers organic produce. Here I have lived next to this marketplace for years (when I am not in Ohio) and I never even knew what it was.
Coming in October is an organic garden encompassing 5,280 square feet and featuring eight elevated planter-box areas separated by a flowing water feature. Lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, celery, herbs, and edible flowers will thrive in the garden, along with the orange, grapefruit, lemon, and lime trees that will line its perimeter.
In addition to tours led by the Boulders’ chief gardener, the resort will offer cooking demonstrations and interactive classes in the Golden Door Spa’s chef demonstration kitchen.
Yippee. I think I need to make vacation plans right about now. :)
