Tangerines 2015Certified Organic Tangerines

These are the tangerines you’d find on the Island of Tangerina.

So orange! Sweet! Did we say round? And – orange? Yes, but we’ll say it again: Let the citrus abound, it’s so orange!

Make sure you have a spot  in your home that receives full sunlight for most of the day, and come on in to choose the succulents that call out to you!

Gypsy Rose Raw Milk Goat Cheese

Other Avenues is proud to offer Gypsy Cheese Company Cheeses!

The story behind the cheese is kind of a dream story: Jon & Lauren Bowne founded Gypsy Cheese Co. in 2013, after working as attorneys in SF. They dreamed big enough to quick their day jobs and pursue cheesemaking in rural Valley Ford.

The Bownes craft their cheese by hand in small batches, using the best local milk.

gypsy rose cheeseWe admit it. We’re in love with Gypsy Rose & the smaller Rosebud cheese rounds:

The rind is a delicate orange/pink hue – all from a whey-brine during the aging process. The texture of the cheese is soft & yielding.

Coming up: SOLAR ENERGY CHAT, 1/31.

 

 Want more solar in the Outer Sunset community? Support this pay-it-forward model!

 

We’ve joined forces with RE-volv, a SF-based nonprofit organization that supports the growth of solar communities across the United States.

 

RE-volv is raising money for our 36W solar system. In turn, we’ll pay RE-volv back, and the money we pay back will be reinvested into more solar projects across our country.

Why Shop Co-op?

Other Avenues is OpenWorker-coops worldwide support non-hierarchal decision-making, fair labor practices, & economic equity.

In the Bay Area alone, there are dozens of Worker-owned cooperatives offering an array of services, including retail, bicycle repair, graphics design, web-hosting, and tech support.

By supporting your local cooperatives, you are supporting democratically-owned and operated businesses who act, in the words of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, as “a reminder to the international community that it is possible to pursue both economic viability and social responsibility. “
