Orinda Books’s customers and staff watched the England-Croatia World Cup semi-final on a big screen at the store. Since England was having its best World Cup success in almost 30 years, we thought the occasion called for strawberries and cream. So, we contributed our organic Mara des Bois Strawberries and Pat Rudebusch made whipped cream. Maria Roden and the other Anglophiles enjoyed the surprise treat and England’s first goal, but that was about it. Although England was not a winner on this day, Maria certainly is. She was named Orinda Business Person of the Year by the Orinda Chamber of Commerce. The award is well-deserved. Congratulations Maria!

We are thrilled that Maria Roden, the owner of Orinda Books, has invited Blue Egg to have a stand at her store. We will offer starts, flowers and herbs early on as well as other products in the coming weeks. Our customers will also be able to pick up their orders at the store. We were so pleased to support the luncheon the store held for Emily Murphy, the author of Grow What You Love: Read More

We recently had the pleasure of meeting Donna Pickthall, the owner of Something for the Weekend, a home bakery in Orinda. She has been baking since she was a little girl, and recalls many fond memories of being in the kitchen with her grandmother. We were so pleased that Donna bought some of our hens’ eggs, and even happier to eat her delicious cheese scones (it is hard to only eat one) and lemon drizzle cake. Take a look at all of Donna’s tasty English treats here. You can also meet Donna at the Orinda Farmer’s Market in May. | kts
