A new baby food subscription service called Square Baby is opening a retail store sometime in August in Orinda Theatre Square where ECHO Grove used to be.

Fed up with all the fruit-heavy, sugar-laden baby foods masquerading as balanced meals, Katie Thomson, a Registered Dietitian with a Masters in Nutrition Science, knew she could do better.
With Square Baby, each meal is completely balanced and the Square Meal System™ delivers 100% of a baby’s daily recommended servings of fruit, veggies, protein, and grains. She even incorporated healthy fats like avocado oil, sprouted grains, lentils and Salba chia, and various protein sources like salmon, egg, and bone broth that were often missing from the leading jars and pouches.
The Intuitive Writing Project, an an educational writing program for girls which opened a few years ago in Orinda Theatre Square has closed. According to the owner they are temporarily operating out in Moraga but “it’s possible that we will always be mobile, as this will allow us to serve girls throughout the Bay Area, from San Ramon to Marin and from Oakland to SF.” Check for updates on their website here.

Lina Shatara’s love of travel inspired her collection along with the wealth of visuals (geometric patterns, organic shapes and calligraphy) that boldly influence her designs. Turning sharp yet simplistic pieces into edgy contemporary jewelry has become the DNA of the brand, although not one she is bound to. Every season is about challenging herself creatively. Her use of mixed materials, oxidized metals and matte finishes add elements of surprise to pieces, creating an undeniable unisex appeal.
