Since September 2020, because Organic Essentials family have a special relationship with horses, we decided to support the Santa Barbara non-profit Back to Basics Equine Assisted Recovery, by delivering regular produce boxes to them.
Back to Basics was created by Brenda Brown, Drug & Alcohol Counselor and certified Equine Specialist, who offers Equine Recovery therapy using the healing spirit of the horse. The project offers a safe and tranquil structured sober living environment to women in recovery process.
Horses are used as metaphors, creating healing experiences to encourage each woman to grow emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Women support one another in creating a new life together filled with hope.
Till June 2020, Organic Essentials donated regularly produce boxes to the local project DUO More, from DUO Catering, that was, during this pandemic, delivering healthy food to families in need, in Santa Barbara.
