Meeting tonight at 9:15 in the Faculty Commons! Hope to see you there!

Cool stuff goin' on this semester with Slow Food! Check out our notes from this week's meeting to get up to date:

We are tabling THURSDAYS to sell our reusable bags and cookbooks at the farmer's market! Please sign up to help table here: https://docs.google.com/…/1MpMXkwb5rrAqMvnncrlHtnrGAF…/edit…

CSA SHARES ARE ALMOST A GO! As of now, we will be having a Spring CSA start at the beginning of April until first week of May. A vegetable share, bread share, milk share, egg sha...re, meat share, and the beloved Sprout Creek cheese share will ALL be available. Super exciting stuff. If you want to help organize this, email getoland@vassar.edu!

This semester we're focusing on ~info sharing~ which means we want to learn more from each other and put on events where the student body could learn more. On that note we have the following things going on:
1. Send us stuff! - articles, notes, pictures, movies, whatever - about food issues, agriculture, cooking, Slow Food, animals, or whatever you find the least bit interesting. We will talk about the things you send us at the meetings to learn about what's going on in the world.
2. Professor/Student Panel on food research with Challah for Hunger and Hunger Action - details to come.
3. Speaker - we almost got a speaker last semester but it fell through, so this semester we are trying again! If you know of anybody in the food world, please send us their names and we will contact them!

We want to collab with more clubs (Yay new friends!!) who we don't communicate with yet - literally any club at all! We want to branch out and meet new people and find new connections and really need your help. So if you are part of another club and think it would be a good club friendship, please send us the club's name and leader!

Are you an artist? graphic designer? stick figure drawer? We're looking to make signs on campus to spread our name and mission and fun food facts around. We will be working on this next meeting, so if you're interested in helping with this let us know!

SO. COOL.

A combined grocery store and urban farm where shoppers get a glimpse of how their food is grown and also get to harvest some of their own ingredients.

Right now, the Farmery is just a test project in a shipping container, but Ben Greene and his team have big dreams.
