Festival Season: Networking!

This month has been a choc full of productive and fruitful meetings, tabling events, and other networking opportunities that have allowed us to continue spreading the word of the OEA. Some of the events we attended included the Rainbow Moon Festival, Sourland Mountain Festival, Mercer County 4-H fairNOFA-NJ’s Field Day, and Guns Down Gloves Up.

In the past few weeks we have met with Desmond Hays of GeoGreens, Stacy Denton of Upward Bound, Jeff Geist and Margaret Waldock of Duke Farms, and Julio Badel of Grounds for Sculpture.

This coming month we will continue our efforts, attending tabling events, developing our internships/partnerships, and finishing up our OEA Website revamp!
