Our Fourth issue of ROOT is now available. In this summer/fall issue you will read about growing celery, Diego Rivera, Mexican popcicles, history of the strawberry, and an interview with a black Spanish radish. ROOT now has its own website where you can read snippets of stories or order online.

Enjoy original stories, illustrations, and photographs of our farm and the people who help us. Each issue of ROOT will include a few of Andy's essays (a combo of new articles and old favorites), in addition to several different rotating columns such as folk history, seasonal recipes, herblore, employee features and questions in a Q&A type format. Printed in two colors on nice recycled paper, our 20-page quarterly will be a thought-provoking and fun piece worth keeping around, curling up with in bed or giving as gifts to friends with similar enthusiasm for growing, cooking or sharing food. Send all 4 issues as a gift, includes gift card, or order them for yourself. email root@mariquita.com with your address and we'll send out the issues. It's $22 for the 4 issues: a complete year.
