The Healthy Living Series – Plant Remedies of the Desert and Mountains of California

Friday, March 27th between 6pm – 8pm

Your presenter for this evenings program will be Mark D’Aquila, a plant researcher and plant medicine maker. His interest in the unique environments of the California deserts and mountains has led him to develop many new remedies of the healing plants which grow there.  The plants of this region offer a unique healing energy which can be useful for tension relief, calming, cleansing and rejuvenation of our life force. This will be a fun, informative and enriching evening.

Much of his plant research is on the frontier, his aim being to research those plants which are valuable but less known.  Like his work the evening will be about discovery, in his talks he encourages active audience dialogue. There will be discussion, experience based exercises, and more!

Everyone is welcome and all events in the Healthy Living Series are free.

We hope to see you there.

Upcoming Healthy Living Series Event – Healing Green Soup Workshop

Right now, millions of people around the world are busily deciding their New Year resolutions. While doing so, many are pondering whether it’s worth the effort. Is committing to eating less fast food and more fruits and vegetables merely a nod to tradition? Do New Year’s resolutions work? Starting a project on a significant date, whether it be a Birthday, anniversary or another meaningful day, studies suggest that success rates are significantly boosted.
Why not kick off your 2015 with a boost of inspiration from one of our very own, Pat Olsen. Continuing our Healthy Living Event Series into the new year, we are pleased to welcome Pat Olsen of Zebra Organics to our Palm Springs facility to present a Healing Green Soup workshop. 
A gourmet cook and pioneer of healthy, flavourful recipes, Pat continues to live an energetic and youthful lifestyle, teaching people how they can shift their health with simple diet and lifestyle adjustments.

Friday, January 9 between 6pm – 8pm – Nutritionist Pat Olsen of Zebra Organics leads a Healing Green Soup workshop at our Palm Springs facilities.
Guests will learn:
– How to blend this special combination of healing ingredients, why they are so nutrient rich, and how to make it delicious.
– The story behind the creation of the raw soup recipe and the support it received from a restauranteur extraordinaire and genius pioneer of the raw food movement in the United States.
Zebra Organics and Sky Island Organics invite you to come down and be inspired by a woman that cured herself of insulin dependent diabetes more than 50 years ago and has since helped improve the health of countless others.

Healthy Living Series Kicked off With Raw Lifestyle Food Preparation Workshop

On Friday, November 14 we kicked off our Healthy Living Event Series with Joan Jackson of Living Raw. 


Hosted by Zebra Organics and Sky Island Organics, the evening was a great success. Joan inspired the audience with some delicious raw food recipes, including a zucchini pasta in a flavourful tomato based sauce.Everyone enjoyed the evening, with a few guests accepting the invitation to come up and prepare some food, on their own, with Joan’s guidance.

Team members from both Zebra Organics and Sky Island Organics were on hand to offer insights and support to the group.

Thank you to everyone that attended. Here are some highlights from the evening:

Note taking to remember ingredients and steps

Key ingredients for zucchini pasta:


Pistachios – Garnishing your pasta dish with pistachios diversifies the texture and provides a satisfying crunch. Sky Island Organics offers Organic Sprouted Pistachio kernels.

Olive oil – Tossing your zucchini pasta in Zebra Organic’s Gourmet Peruvian Olive Oil will add a rich flavour to the dish.


A tip from Joan: Use Organic Pitted Botija olives in your zucchini pasta recipe, for their super rich, delicious, full flavour.
