SFEE’s Top Ten Projects of 2016
A Note from SFEE’s Chair, Anne Howard
As 2016 comes to a close, it’s always good to look back at what we’ve actually done in the past year. Where did the time go? What happened during the past year that was new or worthwhile to remember? As I complete my first year as Chair, I can look back at what SFEE accomplished in 2016 and be proud of our chapter, our Leaders – and our food community.
Slow Food East End plays a unique role in our community though our support of Edible School Gardens. Thanks to our partnership with Susan and Myron Levine of the Joshua Levine Memorial Foundation, the East End has one of the most successful school garden programs in the country.
Through the JLMF & SFEE annual April fundraiser, we are able to fund stipends for three Master Farmers who advise school gardens throughout the East End. We also provide mini-grants to help these school gardens grow and flourish as educational teaching tools.
In addition to our support of school gardens, here’s our list of Top Ten 2016 Projects that we’re especially proud of (in no particular order)…continue
Snail of Approval
We are a dynamic chapter of Slow Food USA, fortunate to be in an area where Slow Food principles are lived by our neighbors: farms, dairies, wineries, cheesemakers, artisanal food producers, fishers, beekeepers, and more.
