The NH Food Alliance blog highlights the fascinating and diverse happenings throughout the Granite State food system. Read on for information and inspiration!
As New Hampshire’s mud season marches on and pulls us closer to that much-anticipated Springtime warmth, it seems to leave us with a sense of uncertainty. Will it rain today, or will it snow? Should we pack a light jacket and bask in the sun, or keep our winter coats at the ready for any last bursts of winter weather? Can optimism and pure willpower make these shoes immune to the mess of mud season?
If you’ve been paying attention to our website, social media accounts, or blog lately, then you’ll know that the NH Food Alliance & NH Farm to School recently hosted our fourth annual NH Food System Statewide Gathering – and it was fantastic! Hopefully, we saw you there and got to share in all of the laughs, appreciations, and delicious lunch. We were amazed by the excitement of over 130 food system advocates who came out to participate and made this year our largest Gathering yet!
We know it’s not Spring yet, but every warm and sunny day reminds us that we’re at least getting closer. Before we know it, Spring will rear its head - and with it, Spring Cleaning. Many of us will soon be opening the closet doors, walking out to the garage, and taking a good hard look at those parts of the lawn in need of a little sprucing up. With all of its junk drawers and refrigerator space, the kitchen will probably need a little TLC too.
And just like that, it’s February. Nearly two months of the year have already come and gone. We here at the Food Alliance feel like it’s a good time to check in with all our network partners, farmers, and foodpreneurs. How are you doing? Have you managed to make it through the days of minimal daylight? Are you dreaming about springtime as much as we are?
A warm welcome to the New Year! As students of all ages say goodbye to winter break and head back to school for the spring semester, we here at the Food Alliance want to encourage all our network partners, farmers, and foodpreneurs to think about investing in their own education this year.
