Organic Tree is Alive and Growing!

Organic Tree is thriving beyond the Shala doors. You are welcome through Pacific Ashtanga retail space or at our entrance around the other side of the building. We started serving juices and samples of potential menu items to the Pacific Ashtanga Community on Saturday May 29. Monday June 7 we introduced our fixed menu offering both a Fresh Fruit Salad and a Quinoa & Avocado Garden Salad with an orange flax oil dressing.

Brian and Diana had a vision to offer the Pacific Ashtanga Community organic local juices and fresh raw/vegan cuisine available after practice throughout the week. A fixed menu of 2 or 3 daily raw/vegan entrees and a short list of juices will be available to enjoy at Organic Tree or to take-out in biodegradable containers. Soon we intend to offer more entree selections on our take-out menu and we'd like to offer Organic Catering in the future.

I,Valerie Adair recently joined in the vision to operate the cafe, create menus & recreate your menu requests, I'll be offering health & culinary workshops, and keep the food comin! I have served as a Private Chef and Caterer for 30 years, as a licenced Gerson Therapy Care Giver I am passionate about food as medicine, self healing, and just healthy, beautiful, clean, food. I advocate conscious food choices and incorporating as much raw organic food into your diet, as possible to create artistic flavorful dishes.

We are creating a beautiful space beyond the Shala doors here at Organic Tree. Come relax taste live raw nutrients at their peak, fresh from South Coast Farms.
We are growing every day!

Rollin our own ~ Raw California Rolls at Organic Tree

What a Beautiful Dish and very flavorful, California/Shitake Roll with Braggs's Amino & Wasabi . Everyone loved the flavors, texture and the raw jicama in place of white sticky rice. "Excellent....I'd definitely order this"!
