KRCB, North Bay Public Media, is running a segment called North Bay Bountiful. From their website:
“Cultivate. Celebrate. Connect. The San Francisco North Bay area enjoys an incredible bounty of resources—both natural and creative—that enrich all our lives. Our land and seascapes offer breathtaking vistas while also serving as the source of an amazing variety of food and products. There is a pervasive sense of appreciation and connectedness around this bounty, and ample evidence that residents care deeply about optimizing and preserving it. Our arts and culture reflect a joyous recognition of all that lives and grows and sustains us here—body and soul. We share a common mindfulness of just how precious and precarious our resources are.”
As part of this special focus, we were pleased to find several Petaluma, California farms featured in this great series. We are happy to share them on our site.
From KRCB YouTube Description: “‘Grow the mind to grow the soil, to grow food that strengthens the community.’ That is the mantra of Tara Smith of Tara Firma Farms in Petaluma, California. Thanks to Farm Shorts. More info at : http:///www.northbaybountiful.org“

Thanks to the work of Brian Dixon who directs the Petaluma Athletic Club’s Junior Racquetball program, two of our young Petaluman junior racquetball players, Heather Mahoney (10U Girls) and James D’Ambrogia (12U Boys) advanced to the World Championships. They were both in the top 2 at the National Junior Racquetball Championships and invited to play on Team USA to and advance to the 2015 Junior World Championships in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. In addition to singles, both Heather and James played doubles.
Heather is now a World Champion after beating Mexico in a tie breaking match today. She is the best 10U girls junior racquetball player in the world!
Congratulations to Heather and James for representing Petaluma well as world class racquetball players and big thanks to Brian Dixon and Heather’s coaches for supporting our world champion.

On Wednesday, November 11 Petaluma held its annual Veterans Day Parade, one of the largest in northern California. People lined the parade path, waiting to cheer on the veterans and voice their support for U.S. troops.
Marching in the parade were a wide variety military units and veterans including those who served in World War II, as well as color guards, local school bands, family members of veterans, and scout troops. Parade vehicles ranged from traditional floats to fire engines, military vehicles, and antique cars. Overhead were flyovers by military aircraft and helicopters.
On the sidelines, families and other veterans saluted the troops, waved flags, and generally cheered on our veterans. American flags were waving everywhere on the parade route. Several groups had stands stocked with Christmas cards and pens so that people could write to active troops to wish them well for the holidays.
After the parade, a memorial ceremony was held at Walnut Park, during which the National Anthem and “God Bless America” were sung and prayers were said for the troops. This year’s memorial ceremony unveiled Petaluma’s Korean War monument, dedicated to three Petaluma soldiers who died in the Korean War. The unveiling and dedication was a special moment for everyone there, and especially for the loved ones of those soldiers.
