A public service message from forageSF
The holidays are a time for giving. For searching our hearts and minds, attempting to find just the right gift to satisfy those we love. Perhaps its that ipad they've been lusting after, or maybe a fine book of fiction, one that will gently lull them to sleep, bundled up in front of a crackling fire on those cold Bay Area winter nights (I don't care what East Coasters say, 50 degrees is cold!). Perhaps you have an art lover in your life, and are leaning towards a gift of oil paints, those nice ones that caught her eye at Flax last month, and for the less imaginative amongst us, pre-paid gift cards to Best Buy are always a hit.
I am the fist to say that these are all great gifts, but we at forageSF would be remiss if we failed to remind you of the coming post-apocalyptic dystopia. It could be a foreign power that shuts down the grid, a torrential flood caused by global warming (if you believe in that kind of this), or the ever popular fire and brimstone, rained down upon us for our myriad sins (I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure the rapture is going to be leaving me behind). Sure, it could come in 50 years, or it could come tomorrow. Our team of experts are still working out the specifics, but they predict with 100% certainty* that it will come "very soon" (*with a margin of error of 0-100%).
We don't like to think about it, but the truth is that when it does come we'll all have to choose teams. There wont be room for everyone on our ship, and two by two we'll choose those with the skills to survive. I don't know about you, but those that can hunt, fish, and forage will be first on my list.
Don't let your loved ones be picked last. For their sake and for the sake of all of us, set that ipad aside, and get them a gift certificate from forageSF: HERE
Blessings this holiday season,
From Iso and The forageSF family to yours
