VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+

What we love, what we are grateful for, we protect. This month, in walking with you at the Authentic Foothill Gardens, we see how much you love this city and how you work to protect it.

You lift our hearts, even more than is natural for an LA November, and isn’t November predictably outstanding? Our wild spaces and native gardens take on the look of spring. They are full of new found life and energy as the heat of summer quiets. At the beach, the ocean seems to do its best to contrast with our pink and coral sunsets.

We are grateful for you. We wish each of you great joy, harmony, and vitality this Thanksgiving and always.

Sincerely,
Cassy and Kirk
