Week 5: Communications, assignments, field trips and colds….
Another week hard at work on organising our organisation! This week we nailed the communication strategy, so as long as we find an army of workers for the communication Zoo you’ll be seeing and hearing a lot more from us through blogs, facebook, twitter and a newsletter!
Harry and Camilla have been working really hard to organise our catering assignment for Frome’s very own Independents Day (Sat the 17th of Nov – don’t miss it!) . They have been meeting lots of really great local suppliers and getting advice and recipes from caterers. The food is set to be delicious and educational! These two food mad edventurers have also been getting all our group food organised, which will include a weekly organic veg bag to take home for everyone and a christmas hamper from Frome Wholefoods, we are eternally grateful!
Ben went on a really inspiring trip up to the College Project in Bristol, a 6 acre campus that has been transformed over the past two years in to a vibrant, creative community learning space, a huge inspiration for the Edventure Hub (http://www.edventurefrome.org/frome-edventure-hub/inspirations/). Ben is hoping to take the whole group up some time in the next month….
Ben also went with Zoe down to visit Vallis Veg to chat growing with Chris Smadge. There are lots of potential project to do on the land down there, most likely in the Spring, and we will be doing some work in exchange for vegetables for the delicious soups we will be making for Independents Day.
With 4 out of 7 of us down with heavy colds, and Johannes away in Rome it was a very unconventional monday meeting today, at home by the fire with plenty of lemon and ginger tea. Still an exciting week planned with some of the group going off to work at the half-term Forest School with Helen Moore and Alex Hart, others visiting the Weston Super Mare Wood Recycling project, and a big group gardening session down at Vallis Veg on Friday.
