Sand N’ Straw Community Farm We first heard about the family-run Sand N’ Straw Community Farm from our next door neighbor the other day. Today seemed like a good day to check it out and see what they had to offer. The Farm Stand is open on Saturdays from 9 to 12 noon. You can simply walk in and pick up produce, root vegetables, herbs and fresh eggs. They have other plant-based products as well. Feature photo  is of our haul today.  The Farm Box Program offers 2 types of “Farm Boxes,” a Half Share (5 – 7 different items) or a Full Share (10 – 12 items). A Half Share typically works for 1 or 2 people, while the Full Share is good for 3 to 4 people, for up to a week. Farm Boxes are also known as CSAs or Community Supported Agriculture. Farm Box offerings vary by what is currently at peak h...

Manufactured Homes As "ADUs"   "Manufactured Homes have been around for decades, and have evolved with the times. They are banned in some jurisdictions from being an ADU due to legacy zoning codes. But, where they are allowed to be built and installed as ADUs, they offer an affordable and streamlined way to add one to a property. All of California allows for HUD manufactured homes as ADUs. Many if not most are jumping on board as well.""Join us to hear from one of the top teams in building manufactured homes as ADUs, Crest Backyard Homes based in the San Diego region, as they provide an overview of how this building type can meet the needs of homeowners looking for a relatively affordable, quick, prefab ADU option."  "You will learn about the financing, appraisals, construction, and de...
