What's New in OmOrganics.orgTO OUR LONG-TIME USERS:
While we're not updating much of the content in this site anymore (thanks to Yelp, CUESA and the Ecology Center calendars), we thank you for your continued use of our resources and directories. We'll leave this site up as long as you are coming back!
TO NEW USERS:
This website was developed in 2003 and has had an amazing run for over 10 years! We launched it when the sustainable food, "farm to table" scene was just blossoming in the SF Bay Area, and wow how it's evolved. Today there are many resources to find organic restaurants and farm events, so we no longer update the listings in this site.
The most non-time-sensitive areas of the Om Organics site are now:
