ABOUT THE PRODUCT/VENDORS
Anna and Emily founded Leaves and Flowers in 2014 by utilizing locally grown botanicals to create their infusions, in hopes of offering a botanical experience that honors the beauty and lore of the plants. Inspiration comes from the plants themselves – the mythology of their medicine, their potent leaves, delicate flowers, and the intoxicating aroma and flavor they release when infused. Leaves and Flowers botanical infusions are produced by hand in small batches in their California workshop.

Alter Eco co-founders Mathieu Senard and Edouard Rollet were trained in business but remain activists at heart. Before starting Alter Eco in the United States 15 years ago, they experienced first-hand both profit-driven multinationals and on-the-ground NGOs. Seeing the challenges of existing humanitarian aid efforts, they became pioneers in social entrepreneurialism, wielding the business of food to fight for economic and social justice. That’s why every product they make is sourced from farmer-owned coops practicing sustainable agriculture. It's as easy as that!
Urb Apothecary began with a vision for skincare products that reflect the needs and desires to connect with simple chemical-free ingredients.

Each one reflects her good intentions and a deep-rooted fascination with the healing power of herbs and plants.

After years of pushing paper around in corporate America, feeling deeply unsatisfied and utterly uncreative, Alana of Etta + Billie found her calling after receiving a soapmaking book in her Christmas stocking.

Gary Erickson and Kit Crawford began their love of food and wine with cycling adventures through Italy where long days of cycling would end in leisurely evenings of good wine, food, and hospitality. As great lovers of food, wine, and adventure, Gary and Kit sought to bring these memorable experiences to their Napa Valley home through opening Clif Family Winery, which expanded to food, a food truck, gifts, and an amazing winery that feels just like home.
