First, thanks to all that were able to attend the meeting today.
This is a quick review of what we discussed.
We have crew to man the Slow Food Club Booth for RIO Day in the cafeteria this week Wednesday 27 Jan. 9am – 2pm.
Next meeting scheduled for FEB 22, 12:30 – 1:30 Ohelo 124.
Rory has volunteered to help keep the blog updated and to coordinate the possibility of film screening(s).
Jen B and Ellka have volunteered to help research and organize farm tour(s) for this semester. We discussed looking into visiting the loi patch, north shore value wagon farm, and the naked dairy farm, just a few to start.
Josh is now the new garden manager! Josh is organizing a work crew to overhaul the garden and plant anew. Slow Foodies are called to lend a hand. Starting this Saturday (Jan 30) and Sunday (Jan 31) we will hold workdays 7:30AM- noon. Please contact Josh for more information 808.489.8563. We will continue with workdays on Saturdays and Sundays – unless notified otherwise.
We talked about the need to organize and plan for THREE more healthy food demos this semester. We discussed having a team leader or coordinator for each demo to help plan the prep day, recipes and organize volunteers. If you are interested in this great experience please let san know. Gida and San will back you up and help coach you along. We need to decide on three recipes that feature ingredients available for the purchase at the farmer’s market, easy for home cook preparation and of course HEALTHY.
We briefly talked about planning a cheese making demo with the idea that if we planned for the weekend before Earth Day we could have a tasting or even “sale” of product. Josh suggested that we videotape the process so folks to watch it at the booth. We also talked about combining a farm tour/visit before making the cheese to see the full circle.
We voted to be a part of the campus Earth Day celebration. See above. The other idea was to have educational info about composting and garden tours. Earth Day is Thursday, April 22 this year.
We reviewed the commitment to the 350 Cookbook project. We need to get more info from Gida.
What a great start to the new semester.
