Please join Homeless Garden Project for a screening of "Not the Other," a 20-minute movie presenting first-hand accounts from homeless members of our community. The film is the result of a year-long project with interview from 40 people experiencing homelessness. This multimedia presentation, with videos, photographs, and text narratives, is designed to demonstrate the wide diversity, and the dignity, vulnerability, resilience, resourcefulness, struggles and strengths of the homeless. Homeless Garden Project (HGP), founded in 1990, provides job training, transitional employment and support services to people who are homeless. The programs take place on a 3-acre organic farm and related enterprises. The Project operates a vibrant community education and volunteer program that serves more than 1500 people each year. HGP Downtown Store features products made in HGP's training program and is open Friday and Saturday, noon-7pm and Sunday, noon-6pm. The event is free, but your purchases, and donations, support HGP's programs.

    Best of Santa Cruz County

    The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX

     

    Santa Clara Wine Trail

    My memories of growing up in England include my mother pouring port after Sunday dinner—and sometimes a glass of sherry before dinner. My family didn’t drink much wine back then, but we certainly made up for it with the port and sherry.
