We are thrilled to have All Good Bakers as our very first business member of the CCI!


 All Good Bakers works hard to make their bread and baked goods from scratch, using locally sourced and organic ingredients where possible – and now their food scraps will be turned into compost at the Radix Center!

After running a community supported bakery, their store at 160 A Quail St. is open:

Fridays 11-6
Saturdays 11-4
Sundays 10-2 (light brunch)      
& they also have a booth at the Delmar Farmer’s Market.
You can also find them on the web at http://allgoodbakers.weebly.com  or facebook –http://www.facebook.com/AllGoodBakers

The construction on the greenhouse is nearly complete- but we need help raising funds for the sustainable systems that will live inside and be teaching tools!  This includes the aquaculture system (click here for a description), dirt, plants, rabbit cages, chickens and ducks, mushroom spawn, and more.

The Radix Center is participating in the Freihofer’s Community Walk on June 4th, 2011.  Funds raised will be used for teaching tool supplies.

For more on the walk and participating click here.
