GS AWARD OPPTY: Hosted by BoroGreen at Duke Farms on Sun., March 9, 2014
BoroGreen will be hosting a conference at Duke Farms on Sunday, March 9, 2014. It is titled DISCOVER FOOD: Explore, Engage, Experience. The flyer to explain the conference to presenters is attached.
Ideas for Juniors and above.
· helping with setup: assisting food purveyors, etc. It will be important for BoroGreen to have numbers, however. The building has a maximum capacity that we cannot exceed.
· Potential Silver/Gold: Research a food activism topic (eg, Food and Water Watch, create a display, and educate the public on this topic (during the third hour of the event)
· Beyond the conference: NJ Farm to Schools program to maintain school gardens
· Kitchen Gardens International, which runs a program called “Sow it Forward”. http://kgi.org/grants Please note that the grant application deadline is January 5, 2014.
