Anything honestly. The
illusion is nice.
I am really proud of some of the food items we have been churning out at The Café @ St. Stephen’s so here is a post with a bunch of recent pics! I am not the stable genius behind all of these different dishes, we have an incredible team of stable geniuses crafting the food.
We are doing a ton of local, vegan, gluten free, organic, non GMO, raw, and soy free options. Daily soup is vegan and gluten free and good. Rotating side dishes are delicious and creative. Come try something!

I love lists, and I love resolutions. I often come up with overly ambitious lists for my New Year. 2017 has been a year of barely keeping my head above water, what with farming, Herbalism, two toddlers, construction business and getting to job of opening and running a café for a church. And then managing the Farmer’s Market was thrown in too. I have pahlenty (sic) to do. I may not make a big list this year. It may be something as simple as ‘have 2 days off a week’. Not quite sure yet.
In the mean time, I have decided to give a 20% discount on coffees, teas, and smoothies to people who come into The Cafe @ St. Stephen’s and write down one of their New Year’s Resolutions for us to display. We want to celebrate, encourage, and inspire everyone who is trying to make positive changes in their lives.
So come by 6000 Grove Avenue and get a discount from now until the end of January. I want to see what goals Richmond has for the new year.

I put this Materia Medica for Goldenrod together last year for a project for the first year apprenticeship at Owlcraft Healing Ways. Today I harvested a bit of goldenrod, and wanted to share this information. If anyone local is in need of some goldenrod, I have a good amount, in various stages of blooming. Please get in touch if you would like to come harvest some, or if you would like me to bring you some I harvest. Fresh for $9 a pound if I bring it to you, if you want to come get it, trade me some plant identification or something fun!
Goldenrod or Solidago Spp.
Aka blue mountain tea, liberty tea, wound wort, Aaron’s rod
Very erect perennial, 2-3 feet tall according to some sources. I have seen a lot taller that here at the Heathen Homestead. Stems become Woody but do not often Branch out. Small yellow clusters of disklike flowers with 1/4 inch heads that bloom between July and October.
