Fresh. Local. Food 

Last Wednesday was our first outing as part of my summer experience for the project.  I attended the Alamance Co Food Collaborative meeting which was help at Pandora’s Pies (which was delicious).  The overall point for this meeting was that Elon University Dining wants to serve locally grown fresh produce.  We met with a variety of people in the community that all act in different roles and will be a part in getting this food collaborative rolling.  Some questions we are still pondering …. how do we get the farmers involved?  what rules and regulations have to be in place first?  is there enough of a demand to make it worth the time?

Do you know where your food you ate today came from?  How far did it travel to get to your plate?  Where is your favorite local place to shop?

I would love to hear your thoughts! Stay tuned for more to come!  Day 2 gets even better!


Hello world!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself.  I am currently one of two agriculture teachers at Western Alamance High in Elon NC.  This spring I was selected as a Kenan Fellow for the Developing the State of Agriculture sponsored by USDA and Alamance County Farm Bureau.  This summer I will be learning about agriculture in Alamance County, meeting farmers, and agribusiness owners.  I will also be attending learning institutes in Cullowhee at NCCAT , NC State , and Bayer this summer.  I will be sharing my experiences with every here! My overall goal or product is to have a community Agriculture event at my school next spring.
