The social media aspect of my internship has been quite interesting. Facebook, Twitter, and Websites are a great outlet for networking with like-minded people, educating those who are unfamiliar with our mission and cross-promoting events. Kayleigh and I have been featuring some local organizations as well as sharing ideas and recipes on the blog (check it out...

I am also responsible for the email account. We receive emails about events and from people who want more information about slow food in Saratoga. I have also had people who are a part of slow food in other areas email us and they want to know where to eat when they are visiting. It makes me feel really special to share my ideas with other people.

Kayleigh created an amazing flyer for the community (above). We wanted to give it an "occupy feel" and thought that the statistic was grabbing. We have created a database and continue to add to it. It is made of of farms, restaurants, vendors, and like minded organizations that we hope to work with in the future.

We have also drafted a letter to send to farms. It contains information about our organization and willingness to work together in the future.

It has been absolutely beautiful here over the past few weeks and I can't help but think about the outdoor market. Kayleigh and I have been pondering the thought of a booth at the market this spring. It would give us another opportunity to educate the community! We have a meeting with the board on tuesday and will be presenting our idea.

More to come...
