The 2019 seasonal debut our classic, New York-style pickles! Rent the film "Crossing Delancey" and pop open a jar of this Summer treat. Our first local pickling cucumbers were brined with spices and herbs, and cultured until they capture the classic taste straight out of the 50-gallon sidewalk barrels at Gus's Pickles. In the range between sour and half-sour, these herby pickles are a perfect probiotic sidekick to a burger, sandwich or any meal--including a kid's lunchbox! Note: our pickling cucumbers come from local family farms, and vary in size throughout the summer season. We make sure each jar has the correct amount of pickles, regardless of size; if the cucumbers are large we cut the pickles in half.

Beyond Straight Teeth. One class (July 24, 6-7:30pm)

1 class (1.5 hours)


Three Stone Hearth's approach to nutrition is inspired by the work of an American dentist, Weston A. Price, who traveled the world extensively in the 1930s, documenting the vibrant health of traditional societies that were free from the degenerative diseases of modern life.  He came to believe that poor nutrition in the modern diet caused severe dental and structural problems with the jaw — "the collapse of the middle third of the face" — which has profound implications for our overall health. This essential class by Dr. Mona Moy builds on that work and those insights. 


Part 3. You Are What You Eat: nutrition, hormonal balance and oral health

In a world that promotes fast and easy foods, with doctors and “experts” offering contradicting diets and an ever-changing array of “superfoods,” it's hard to know how to best support our families through proper nutrition. Grounded in the wisdom of Ancestral Diets, Dr.  Moy will discuss how nutrition can aid in preventing tooth decay and support healthy development of the face and jaw, as well as the hormonal aspects of how nutrition affects growth and development in children, which is her area of specialization — and specifically what we can do to help our children achieve vibrant health beyond straight teeth.


Dr. Mona Moy is a Berkeley-based dentist, with a focus on Functional, Integrative Biologic dental medicine for children, particularly alternative orthodontic treatments. Her education spans disciplines from the East and West. She is the only dentist to become a fellow of the American Society of Endobiogenic Medicine and Integrative Physiology, which looks at the health through the lens of integrated systems theory, grounded in the workings of the endocrine system, which produces hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, sleep, and mood.

Cost is $30.
