The Gathering is a culmination of a community's best: the freshest produce from local family farms, quality finds from curated, ethical vendors, educational, family-friendly activities, and much more. We are a lifestyle destination for those who want to live intentionally and connect with their unique community (and have a great time while doing so). In a world of distraction and social isolation, The Gathering is a place of purpose and inclusivity on a mission to support farmers, families, and local economies.

"I saw the drastic difference in our health and wellbeing: our skin, our hair, and so much more. I thought maybe there are others out there that need what I make. I feel so blessed to help people reclaim the health of their hair and skin." - Rachel Estrada

 

Rachel's pro tip: It's all about going back to the basics with milks, oils, and clays!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead

We can't change the trajectory of health and wellness for people without immersing ourselves in their communities. The Gathering invites all to nurture their bodies, minds, and spirits in the comfort of their communal backyard.

 

Our goal is to make a true impact in the communities we serve through our ecosystem of local farmers, musicians, eateries, artisans, and community leaders.

How to make: 

  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta according to the directions.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the pine nuts. Toss and stir them until they are golden and fragrant, about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat immediately.

  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Whisk it constantly until brown bits begin to form on the bottom and the butter is golden. When that happens, add the garlic and squash rounds and toss to coat, then cook for 5 minutes until the zucchini softens. Sprinkle it with salt and pepper.

  4. The pasta should be finished by now, so add it to the skillet with the zucchini. Turn the heat to low. Toss the pasta and squash well, making sure everything is combined and has a bit of butter on it. Crumble in the goat cheese and toss it well. Add in another few cracks of fresh black pepper. Toss in the pine nuts.

  5. Stir in the fresh basil and serve immediately.
