Meeting Minutes - 3.17.09

Happy Saint Patrick's Day all!

SSA celebrated with a lot of delicious green food - fresh green salad, kiwis, avocados, green tea rice (email Katie for the recipe), and so much more!

The meeting tonight was pretty well attended even though it was finals week. We covered several upcoming activities, including the East Quad Farmers Market Kickoff event on Wednesday, April 1st! Yes, that is right, the EQFM is BACK!

SSA will also be participating in the Wellness Fair on Wednesday April 8th from 11am-2pm in the East Quad, during the EQFM.

Finally, Picnic Day is coming up soon - April 18th - and SSA will be doing an educational and information table on local food, the student farm and more. And the day after Picnic Day, we will be helping out with the Earth Day Sustainability Fair!

With all of these activities coming up soon be looking out for an announcement on the listserv for ways to participate.

Finally, we had guest speaker Allen Doyle, the newly hired Sustainability Manager here at UC Davis. Allen chatted with us about ways to increase our outreach and how we can really connect with the populations of people who don't ever have exposure to what we are trying to promote.

To read the minutes, please go here. All ACTION points are highlighted in yellow.

The first SSA meeting will be held the first full week of spring quarter back out at the Student Farm in our brand-new office! Be there, or be sad that you missed out on the christening ceremony! If you haven't already, please submit your availabilities for next quarter on our DOODLE. We will be sending an announcement soon as to what day of the week we will be meeting.
