Camp By Your Computer!

Why go out in the cold, spend money on gas, deal wih crowds and maybe even subject yourself to unbathed, smelly people who have been camping out for a bargain, and after all of that, you may not find even what your looking for, when in the comfort of your own home you can make all of your purchases at www.shoporganicallygrown.com with the simple push of a button!
Ihave a secret to share with you:  We have cut out the middleman and that  means the retail store leaving them in the cold. We manufacture and sell directly to you and pass that savings on to you.  We learned that it isn’t good enought to just sell an organic product, but it also has to be affordable and you must love it.
Okay…if you really feel the need to get out of your house, Tom Petty has a new album.  It turns out that the album will only be available for sale on vinyl at independent record shops.  Generally, I don’t support petroleum products, but this one features my wife’s not-so-scret crush.

Thanks for Giving!

Organically Grown is proud to support the tireless efforts of our friends and neighbors Jasmin Gabay and Bobby Kimball, who created Saving K-9 Lives. Bobby is also the lead singer of the legendary rock band Toto. Saving K-9 Lives is an organization dedicated to promoting awareness of homeless animals in the US. Saving K-9 Lives is an active dog rescue, finding forever homes for precious canine lives!

Last week, Saving K-9 Lives filmed a PSA starring Ed Begley, Jr. and his lovely wife Rachelle Carson-Begley on the grounds of Organically Grown’s headquarters. Also present at the filming was Bill Champlin, former member of the iconic band Chicago. Saving K-9 Lives is also involved in promoting related charities, such as Operation Blankets of Love, Yorkies and Friends and Beagle Buddies.

Elliott Harvey, founder and CEO of Great Life dog food, was also on hand to provide his tasty treats to the canine celebrities. Elliott, who is the acclaimed author of “The Healthy Holistic Dog,” is devoted to providing the highest quality natural and organic pet food available.

And from Organically Grown’s “Bored of Directors” (Hero, Henry, Carlisle, and the big turkey in the middle!), we wish you all a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

Going Postal!

I’d like to give a shout out to the US Postal Service. Recently they’ve been taking a lot of heat for losing money. All I know is that the postal workers in our community are helpful, dedicated and do a great job.

I consider the USPS to be a sister company to Organically Grown that efficiently and reliably delivers our packages to our customers on time as promised.

Organically Grown Thanks Ed Begley Jr. and Rachelle Carson-Begley

We were honored to have Ed Begley, Jr. and his beautiful wife Rachelle Carson-Begley at our home last week, where they filmed a public service announcement promoting the organization Saving K-9 Lives…I will be blogging about the event and the charities in full later this week.

Rachelle and Ed have been on the forefront of the environmental movement before it was considered to be “cool.” They are the real deal. They have incorporated green living into their daily lives by using hybrid cars, solar and wind power in their home, among countless other green products. Ed has also been honored many times for his environmental work, including receiving the Thomas Alva Edison Award for Energy Independence, and has written two books about living an eco-friendly life.

I would like to thank Rachelle and Ed again for donating their time to a great cause, and I am happy to share this photo of them sporting some of our 100% organic cotton apparel. Ed is wearing our “Act Now” t-shirt, and Rachelle is wearing our white Racerback Tank and Zip-Up Jacket, as well as our Pink Leaf hat. All of these items are available on our website, shoporganicallygrown.com.

We couldn’t have asked for two more beautiful supermodels!

Letting Off Some “Steam”

Recently, non-radioactive ammonia leaked from the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.  This is the latest in a series of nuclear power plant negative headlines in the past few months, from Japan to the US.

The population within 10 miles of San Onofre was 92,687, according the 2010 U.S. Census. The population within 50 miles was 8,460,508. Cities within 50 miles include San Diego (45 miles to city center). A few miles more up the 405 (San Diego Freeway) is Los Angeles County, the most populous county in the United States.

If there was ever a nuclear meltdown at San Onofre, all of us in Southern California would be singing “Nowhere To Run, Nowhere To Hide” (the Martha and the Vandellas hit song).

Why do we have it there anyway? Or, for that matter…why do we have these anywhere?
