The large redwoods outside of my cosy, but chilly cyber-hut are dancing slightly as rain pours down! Good weather for ducks and mushrooms!

I want to let you know that the lovely Sky Garden in 'downtown' Caz is starting its 11th year-YAY! Fruit trees have been recently planted, including one that has 4 types on the one tree. Volunteers are welcome, whether you can come for 1 hour or more.  Monthly workdays (weather permitting) are the 3rd Saturday. Share the work and share the food! Please contact Cathy at or call   632-5743 to help with this very valuable local resource. I have noticed that there are many coastal irises awaiting the sun to bloom and daffodils are already colorfully decorating many of our roadsides, along with gorgeous tulip trees-always early bloomers.

Spring is in the air and the students at Montgomery Elementary School are looking forward to getting outside as drier weather permits. The Spring Break will be from March 18-22nd, with school resuming on March 25th.

I am happy to report that Mr. Trombly's Teas will be reopening in early March as The Duncans Millls Tea Shop.   I haven't heard anything new re 'Treats and Toys' and their possible resurgence. Raymond's Bakery's Friday Pizza and Music Nights are always fun, too.

Enjoy on-site freshly roasted coffee at the Gold Coast Coffee and Bakery.Remember Cazadero Supply's 1st Saturday 15% Discount Day for many of the items you may need for vehicle, garden and household projects. On sunny days, the back deck at Gold Coast Coffee and Bakery  is a delightful place to relax, watch the kitties and have on-site freshly roasted coffee, scrumptious baked goods and yummy tacos made right there for you! Local musicians often play and I love to bask in the sunlight when possible. The  Cazadero and Duncans Mills General Stores   have daily groceries, good sandwiches and locally raised beef, award-winning wines and body products.Cape Fear Cafe offers delicious California/New Orleans specialties and The Blue Heron has live music and a variety of potables.

It is not too early to make your reservation for the annual  Russian River Jewish Community's Passover Seder,  to be held this year on Friday, April 19th at the pleasant Monte Rio Community Center. A wonderful spring ritual, with readings. live music provided by Jubilee Klezmer Ensemble, homemade matzah ball soup and a great potluck repast. Please call   632-5545  for more info and to reserve your place.

I want to wish our dear friend and one of the  River Jewish Community's founders Alby Kass a speedy and full recovery after recent surgery! Looking forward to hearing him sing the classic 'Go Down Moses at the seder!  I wish Very happy March birthdays to Shawn Sheets on the 6th, Rose Abbott on the 10th, Nikki Canelis celbrates on the 13th, Wyatt Parmeter on the 16th,William Grider on the 24th, Annie Austin on the 25th and my dear friend and celebrated poet Susan Kennedy has her day on the 31st, along with Taj Hart. 

Stay dry and please email me at or call  632-5545  with info for your Cazadro Column.
