PENN STATE EXTENSION, FOOD POLICY COUNCIL AND THE PITTSBURGH GARDEN EXPERIMENT
Sustainable Agriculture Fellow:
Summary: In July for Penn State Cooperative Extension I focused on agricultural marketing of local ag-related businesses by writing a blog to promote local farmers’ markets. I conducted a cooking demonstration and also helped organize our materials for the outreach event we participated in at the Pittsburgh Blues Festival. I also tended to our website, YUM Pittsburgh, wrote event reports and conducted some other office work. For the Pittsburgh Garden Experiment I coordinated and attended our PGE events, continued to plan for future events and brainstormed with Jeff Newman about our Urban Farm Aid event to take place this fall. I also helped with the first draft of a grant proposal for innovative ways to educate citizens about storm water management. For the Food Policy Council I sent out a meeting reminder, took notes at the monthly meeting and posted the notes to the Google group.
