Mobile mini farm: Kara Strauss, founder and owner of Bloom Microgreens has put a zippy new spin on the farm-to-table lifestyle. Her new functioning mobile micro-farm is housed in—of all things—an old school bus. Yes, the Bloom Micro Farm Bus is coming to SLO County this 2018! The build-out of the bus is underway with the team adding growing racks, solar panels, and more. Watch this fascinating journey by following @bloom.microgreens on Instagram ... Indulge in SLO CAL Restaurant Month from Jan. 1 through 31, 2018. Participating restaurants will offer special prix-fixe menus of three courses at $30 to $40 per person or other mouth-watering offerings that won't bleed your wallet dry. Remember to call individual restaurants for open hours and additional information before you go. For a list of participating eateries (and to learn about local wine deals for the month of January, too), go to visitsanluisobispocounty.com/restaurant-month. Δ
