New ‘field guide’ highlights sustainable western Sonoma County
Follow the new West Sonoma County Field Guide to restaurants, wineries, and other locally owned businesses that are small-scale, artisan, seasonal, organic/biodynamic, and community-enriching in western Sonoma County.
The new map is produced by Lowell’s Restaurant, an organic eatery in Sebastopol that serves an Italian-inspired menu using local, sustainably-produced ingredients. Basically a curated list, the small guide is a treasure map to businesses that have made a commitment to sustainability.
The restaurants listed use locally sourced, seasonal, and organic ingredients. The wineries use organic and biodynamic practices, hand-harvest their grapes, and make wine with minimal intervention. And the “health and happiness” businesses are committed to sustainability, in their own unique ways.
The cute and colorful maps were printed locally on 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper with soy inks. Printed copies of the map are available by calling 707-829-1077, emailing [email protected], or at Lowell’s Restaurant, 7385 Healdsburg Ave., Sebastopol. Download a pdf of the map at lowellssebastopol.com. Find the maps at other locations via Instagram, @wsc_fieldguide. There is a saved story for each place the map is available.
