Adrift in San Clemente

By | Community

One local artist’s way of helping out the environment.

Susan Grover has always been an ocean lover. She was born and raised on the beaches and in the surf here in San Clemente. She’s an avid swimmer, runner and beachcomber. So the idea came naturally to her to use the treasures and trash that had washed up on her beloved beaches to express her love of the ocean through art.

“My love of collecting the different kinds of wood came to me during one of my daily beach runs with my dog Max (who’s now in doggie Heaven),” says Susan. “There was just such an abundance of all types of wood, and not just drift wood, there was all kinds so I started to collect it.”

Dr. Kaisa Coppola Applied Kinesiologist

By | Client Spotlight

Here we are in the era where alternative healthcare methods are becoming more and more mainstream, especially here in Southern California. We are exercising, juicing, eating organic etc. more than ever. Information about how we can live healthier lives is flooding in, be it through the endless documentaries available to us via Netflix and the like, or through friends and neighbors we know in our lives. We know now more than ever that proper nutrition, exercise and specific care for our own well-being are the new trend in health care. Prescriptions are out, viewed by some as merely band aids covering up the real underlying issues. Prevention is the new medicine.

“I grew up in Mississippi and my family was committed to alternative healthcare. We regularly visited the local chiropractor and would drive hours to the nearest acupuncturist,” says Coppola.

VR Farms – Not Just An Organic Farm

By | Community

Travel just a few miles up Pico and out La Plata to Villa Romano Green Farms and you suddenly find yourself transported to a rustic old-Italian farmstead. And these days when most of us are striving to provide our families with the freshest, healthiest foods, the smaller the distance from the farm to the table the better. With this 2-½ acre organic oasis just down the road, the effort just became that much easier.

VR Farms, for short, is located just inside the entrance to the Bella Collina Towne and Golf Club. The farm is open to the public every Saturday from 10am to 1pm. And this isn’t your average produce stand, far from it. VR Farms owns the bragging rights to the seeds of over 30 vegetables with a lineage that can be traced back 150 years to Sicily. Their offerings include vegetables from Fava Beans to Zucchini Blossoms and everything in between.
