A BACKYARD

HARVEST without the hard work START-UP INSTALLS, MAINTAINS ORGANIC VEGETABLE GARDENS FOR TIME-STRAPPED LOCALS Story by Lena Pressesky Photos by Veronica Weber

K

amila Lambert, founder of Edible Urban Farm Company, is optimistic about her gardening start-up in spite of this year’s drought. For one thing, her company, which installs vegetable gardens in customers’ homes and offers optional maintenance programs for busier clients, has seen success since the start of this year’s drier weather. “People are a lot more conscientious about how much water they are using,” she said. “They want to use water for a good cause ... and gardens give something back.” Many of her customers saw the potential in their expansive green lawns and the practicality of the water they could be saving. But Silicon Valley is full of busy people, and though they may buy organic produce from the farmers market, many couldn’t fathom growing it themselves. Enter Edible Urban Farm Company and Lambert, with her green thumb and gardening know-how. Lambert’s interest in gardening began at Santa Clara University, where she majored in public health science and environmental studies. She got involved with the Forge, the university’s community garden, where she learned the basics of what to grow, and when. During her junior year, she spent a semester Continued on next page

abroad, working with rice farmers in Thailand. After college, Lambert worked for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation doing community outreach for the Innovation Center. Still an avid gardener, she had already installed raised planters in family and friends’ gardens and said she figured she could make a full-time career out of her passion. Lambert founded the company in January 2013, but didn’t leave PAMF to go pro-gardener until earlier this year. Last fall, she took the Gardening & Composting Educator Training Program at San Francisco’s Garden for the Environment — a program which teaches people how to teach others to grow plants. Now well into her first full growing season, she excitedly discussed new clients and new employees. “Initially, I was subcontracting from landscaping companies for labor,” she said. But she’s since hired a small team of her own, adding three members to her budding start-up. Installations can range in size and shape to fit in a variety of yard spaces. Lambert’s clients include Atherton and Woodside residents with acres of farm-ready

LIVE MUSIC The Duet of Kenya Baker & Codany Holiday

Cucina Venti is proud to feature the award winning Kenya Baker Live this Wednesday from 5:30-8:30. Kenya has toured as lead guitarist for Grammy winner Joss Stone for four years, performing for celebrities and dignitaries all over the world.


8FFLFOE private land as well as apartment dwellers with backyards as wide as an arm span. The company’s service area covers Redwood City to Sunnyvale, Portola Valley to East Palo Alto. “Our goal is to get everyone growing their own food,� Lambert said. The company does large and small installments, planter boxes and raised beds alike. Lambert admits it can be challenging when homes have limited space, but like any Silicon Valley entrepreneur, she welcomes the tribulations. “One installation we did a couple of months ago was in a really small backyard,� Lambert said, describing the yard’s sloping perimeter wall. “We ended up making the tomatoes vine up and over the fence.� Despite the literal barriers gardens may come up against, Lambert appreciates the simplicity of the company’s raised beds and the flexibility they allow for customization. Lambert says you can really put them in any kind of configuration, from basic grids to angular U-shapes. “They’re kind of like Legos,� she said. The installation process runs around $1,000 for one 4-by-8 foot bed, and includes the labor, soil, planting, a drip irrigation system, seeds and seedlings. Clients can opt for the Garden Guru plan, a flat rate of $200 per month that includes maintenance by Lambert or one of her employees. They’ll take care of debugging or any other issues that arise, and leave a harvest box full of vegetables and recipes on the client’s doorstep. Lambert said about 90 percent of her clients opt for this service. So clients don’t have to worry about watering their gardens, Lambert and her team install drip irrigation systems, attached to hose spigots or sprinkler heads, that can run on timers according to the season or a client’s vacation schedule. Lambert adds that some of her clients have seen lower water bills that coincide with her

company’s installations. Ariel Johnston, a Palo Alto resident with two children ages 2 and 4, bought four raised beds and the Garden Guru service. “I really wanted to raise my kids knowing where their food comes from,� said the workfrom-home mom, but added that she didn’t know a whole lot about irrigation systems and didn’t feel like she had time to garden. Johnston’s case is typical of most of Lambert’s clients — families who value the idea of teaching their kids where food comes from but don’t have the time to garden themselves. “I knew the kid aspect would be a big part of it, but I didn’t realize how big,� Lambert said of getting children involved with the gardening process. “Kids are more willing to eat vegetables if they’re coming out of their own garden.� Johnston agrees. Her kids “run back and see everything that’s grown and they’re excited about it. ... When it’s ready to eat, they’re chomping on it.� In addition, Johnston cites practical backyard usage as another viable reason to seek Lambert’s help. “We recently redid the whole backyard and ended up with more lawn than I expected,� said Johnston. “I wanted something more productive.� The bounty from Johnston’s garden continually surprises her: “We get a good meal every day out of what we have,� she said, noting that she only buys produce at the market when her garden is between seasons and hasn’t produced any edibles yet. And when the gardens start to bloom, customers get spreads that are both beautiful, practical and customized to their preferences,

as they get to go “shopping� for the types of plants they would like to see in their gardens. Lambert said she also values sustainability and organic materials in her gardens. Home gardens are, by nature, sustainable, but Lambert even uses sustainably forested cedar for the construction of her raised beds, which she has custom built by Natural Yards based in Ashland, Oregon. The soil, seeds and pest management are also organic. Lambert cites companion planting as one way to keep the aphids at bay. “Instead of spraying a pesticide, we’ll plant marigold, nasturtiums and pansies,� she said. “They attract bees and they’re also a natural deterrent for pests, because they don’t like the smell.� And, they bring vibrant color to practical vegetable gardens. Johnston observed that Lambert has carved an interesting and distinctive niche for herself in the Silicon Valley business world. “It’s a different kind of start-up than we see around here,� she said.

COURTESY UNIVERSAL PICTURES

Charlize Theron and Seth MacFarlane in “A Million Ways to Die in the West.�

A Million Ways to Die in the West --1/2 (Century 16, Century 20) There’s no accounting for taste, they say, which might explain the $549 million worldwide gross for Seth MacFarlane’s 2012 comedy “Ted.� Something tells me the planet won’t go quite so gaga for his Western-themed sophomore

effort, “A Million Ways to Die in the West,� but it’s considerably better — even within spitting distance of good. MacFarlane’s last movie could be summed up in a few words — foul-mouthed teddy bear — but “A Million Ways to Die in the West� has at least two ideas more sophisticated than crossing Teddy Ruxpin with a blue insult comic. The first is right there in the title:

that the Old West was a miserable, deadly place to be. The second is that giving the lead character extra insight on this would be funny. Neither of these ideas is especially original (the latter approach, a tonal sensibility, has fueled many a fish-out-of-water historical comedy, like Woody Allen basically plunking his 20thcentury nebbish into czarist Russia for “Love and Death�), but

together, they’re a start. In 1882, sheep farmer Albert Stark (MacFarlane) languishes in the frontier town of Old Stump, Arizona. Too smart-mouthed for his own good, he finds himself in one of those Main Street quick-draw showdowns, but the cowardice he shows puts the nail in the coffin of his relationship with local girl Louise (Amanda Seyfried). Albert’s having a hard

time letting go of Louise when Anna (an appealing Charlize Theron) turns up in town and, taking a shine to Albert, volunteers to help him show Louise what she’s missing. But we know something Albert doesn’t: that Anna has gone AWOL from the gang of murderous bandit Clinch Leatherwood (Liam Neeson). Plus Anna’s See page 26

GODZILLA --1/2

BLENDED -1/2

Sometimes Adam Sandler works for others and makes an interesting and sophisticated film. Mostly, though, he churns out branded “Adam Sandler comedies,” in which he doubles as both producer and star. One of the latter, “Blended” is shamelessly, relentlessly crass and/or manipulative, wholly commercial and utterly conventional. But established formula endures because it works with audiences who don’t mind a cinematic Happy Meal. Sandler plays Jim, a widower and clueless single father to three daughters, whom he has languishing in dowdy “pageboy Prince Valiant” haircuts and unflattering polo shirts and sweatpants. As a teenager, Hilary (Bella Thorne) suffers these indignities the worst, with teen boys constantly mistaking her for a bro. Tween Espn (Emma Fuhrmann) — named after the cable sports outlet — communes constantly with “Invisible Mommy,” and Lou (Alyvia Alyn Lind) earns her keep as a cornucopia of cuteness and emotional truth-telling. The film opens with Jim botching a date with divorcee Lauren (Drew Barrymore). She’s got two hellion sons who are rebelling against their neglectful father (Joel McHale) and mom’s tight reign. Why, those boys need a father! Those girls need a mother! Those singles need each other! These two wacky families find themselves on a collision course when they accidentally wind up sharing a South African vacation package and bond over safaris and tribal dancing. Surprisingly, “Blended” is not one of Sandler’s most racially offensive movies. Yes, it uncritically accepts the cartoon tourist-trap resort version of Africa, but there are such resorts, and folks enjoy their theme-park attractions just like the ugly Americans in this movie do. As always, Barrymore proves extremely appealing — she’s far better than her material — and Sandler can do his laconic comedy and mawkish melodrama in his sleep. “Blended” could be so named because it purees your brain for two hours. Sure, you could do better with your hard-earned cash. But you’ll receive no judgment here. Rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content, and language. One hour, 57 minutes — P.C.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST ---1/2

The best superhero movies in some way work against the grain, like Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies (Gothic films grounded in an urban crime aesthetic and global socio-politics) or Bryan Singer’s X-Men films, which draw on a constellation of interesting characters and play on a scale epic not only for action but in cultural, political and historical implications. “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” restores Singer to the director’s chair of the franchise he launched with 2000’s “X-Men.” A loose adaptation of the comic book story by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, the film wields time travel as the last hope for mutants, in 2023, facing a holocaust from the high-powered robotic Sentinels. A small band of survivors — including Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Storm (Halle Berry) — resolve to use the powers of Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) to send the consciousness of Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back into his 1973 body. Then, Wolverine will seek out the younger Charles “Professor X” Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik “Magneto” Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) and enlist their help to stop Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from assassinating the creator of the Sentinels, Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), inadvertently ensuring his work gets fast-tracked. It’s OK — take a deep breath. One of the miraculous strengths of the new film is its coherence once it gets rolling. With its high-stakes story and large cast of characters, the film keeps up its momentum with ease, with plenty of humor balancing the darkness. As in his earlier films, Singer makes allusions to the Holocaust and gay pride, and gets his Oliver Stone on by adding plot points involving the Kennedy assassination, Nixon and the Vietnam War. But what makes “X-Men: Days of Future Past” more than just a science-fiction action flick is the past-present poignancy, indulging everyone’s fantasy of telling a younger self what he or she needs to hear. Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi violence and action, some suggestive material, nudity and language. Two hours, 11 minutes.— P.C.

In one way or another, Godzilla, the cityleveling lizard, has always represented humanity’s arrogance. This is certainly the case in the latest installment of the storied Kaiju, directed by Gareth Edwards (“Monsters”). “Godzilla” begins in 1999 with Ichiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Vivienne Graham (Sally Hawkins), two scientists who devotedly study Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms (MUTOs) for a secretive global organization. Then enters Joe Brody (Brian Cranston), who lives with his family in Japan and works as a scientist at a local power plant. On that day, massive tremors cause a meltdown, Brody’s wife Sandra is killed, and their son’s life is altered forever. Flashing forward, an all-grown-up Ford Brody (Aaron TaylorJohnson), his wife Elle (Elizabeth Olsen) and their son Sam (Carson Bolde) live together in San Francisco. Back from a tour of duty, Ford is preparing to spend quality time with his family when a phone call from Japan interrupts. His father has been arrested in the containment zone, and he decides to go bring dad home. Ford is quickly thrust into an adventure that brings him face-to-face with a pair of nuclear-warhead-scarfing, insect-like MUTOs, as well as the film’s titular monster, who (spoiler alert) turns out to be the good guy. There are plenty of eye-popping special effects and edgeof-your-seat sequences, Edwards tastefully applies 3D, and the “science” explaining the monsters even feels plausible at times. Cranston is stellar, and the emotion and terror Olsen conjures is palpable. But perhaps the most pleasantly surprising emotion comes courtesy of the film’s CGI team, who contort the face of Godzilla into expressions of rage, pain and empathy. In one scene, Ford looks the monster in the eyes and finds a sentient being looking back. Through the monster’s languishing we realize that if it weren’t for the nuclear testing and the Cold War’s arms race — if humanity could have just been peaceful — likely none of this would have happened. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of destruction, mayhem and creature violence. Two hours, three minutes. —N.V.

and commitment. MacFarlane and company don’t push hard enough in their deconstruction of the Old West: you may feel at times like you’re in a writer’s room hearing jokes pitched rather than enjoying a final draft. Still, a number of those gags are pretty good. Kudos for including jokes about Stephen Foster (including a touched-up version of Foster’s “If You’ve Only Got a Moustache”) and a runner about how no one smiles in old photographs. In the deficit column, MacFarlane collects famous friends and puts them to waste in tee-hee cameos or underwritten parts (fans of

The real stars here are the Monument Valley scenery (afforded the entire old-fashioned opening title sequence to Joel McNeely’s lively score), Theron and Harris, who demonstrates his comic Midas Touch by making funny gestures and funnier noises between limp lines of dialogue.

GRAPES ONIONS WHITE CORN RED SEEDLESS

Whether playing an ad executive on “Mad Men” or a struggling sports agent in this Disney film, Jon Hamm doesn’t need any help with pitching; he throws marketable, high-concept ideas right into the strike zone. Director Craig Gillespie (“Lars and the Real Girl”) knows talent when he sees it, delivering close-up after close-up of the actor. But this baseball movie is about as predictable as a box of Cracker Jacks. An underdog and fish-out-of-water tale, Thomas McCarthy’s screenplay revolves around J.B. Bernstein (Hamm) convincing an Asian investor (Tzi Ma) to mount a contest throughout India in search of cricket players with accurate fastballs — million dollar arms. Bernstein also persuades USC’s coach Tom House (Bill Paxton) to develop the finalists into Major League Baseball pitchers. The stakes are high for Bernstein and his partner Ash (Aasif Mandvi), who need one big client to stay in business. Situational humor abounds as Bernstein,

accompanied by a gruff scout (Alan Arkin), travel to India. The two men wear poker faces and don’t react to cultural differences. Instead the spectator is expected to laugh at everything from inadequate Mumbai office space to villagers bringing cows into their homes and endless contestants throwing baseballs too slowly or completely out of control. The pair of finalists, Rinku (Suraj Sharma, “Life of Pi”) and Dinesh (Madhur Mittal, “Slumdog Millionaire”), move into Bernstein’s bachelor pad, train for tryouts, suffer from culture clash and run into a tame worst-case scenario: If no major league team signs them, they get to return home to their loving families. The Disney production isn’t really a sports movie at all. The real story is about Bernstein transforming from a slick businessman into a human being, as the art of the deal gives way to matters of the heart. Rated PG for mild language and some suggestive content. In English and some Hindi with English subtitles. Two hours, four minutes. — S.T.

997 All Other Legals NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: JILL STANDBRIDGE Case No.: 1-14-PR-174542 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of JILL STANDBRIDGE. A Petition for Probate has been filed by: LEIGH S GATELY in the Superior Court of California, County of SANTA CLARA. The Petition for Probate requests that: LEIGH S GATELY be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on July 21, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. in Dept.: 12 of the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, located at 191 N. First St., San Jose, CA, 95113. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58 (b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Petitioner: /s/ Leigh S Gately 540 W. Sunnyoaks Ave. Campbell, CA 95008 (408)364-0636 (MVV May 30, June 6, 13, 2014)
