What’s been going on!
One of those weeks where the calendar is packed. A lot going on with the various nonprofits that we work with and serve on their boards. Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI) had a full day facilitation training that was a great learning experience and the tools will come in handy.
There was also a retirement party for the last of the founding NCSU faculty members for the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS). We have worked with this group for nearly 25 years first to envision what a big organic research farm could be and then advising along the way as it has grown into a national leader in food and farming systems. We have been honored to be associated with these people and they have always treated us as equal members of the team.
Tonight is the Carrboro Farmers’ Market’s Harvest Dinner at the Market. A great evening with food from many of the chefs who shop at and support the market. It is a fund raiser for various market projects but more importantly it is a wonderful way to visit with farmers, chefs, customers, volunteers, town officials and anyone who loves the market. I think there may still be tickets left.
Next Thursday is our Harvest Dinner at the Eddy Pub in Saxapahaw. They do a series of dinners throughout the year, each focused on a single farm that supplies them with ingredients. Next week is our turn and the food and people will be enjoyable. Fall starts officially tomorrow and it is always a busy time but it sure is starting with a bang.
