I wanted to share an exciting opportunity with you. Please contact me if you are interested in participating or if you know of someone who may be.
On Saturday, Nov. 5 at 10am,we are planning on taking a group of students downtown to visit Findlay Market. We will have someone available to discuss the history of Findlay Market and introduce our group to the local farmers that sell their produce. The purpose of the trip is learn more about sustainability and the positive impact of buying local.
If you are not familiar with Findlay Market it is Ohio’s oldest continuously operated public market. You can find more information on their website: http://www.findlaymarket.org/.
We made a arrangements for a group carpool to meet at the CRC circle at 9:30am on Saturday, Nov. 5th. We have some drivers lined up, if you are interested in volunteering to be a driver as well, please let me know.
If you have your own transportation and prefer to meet down at the market we will be at the open air farmer’s market area at 10am.
Another alternative from transportation is take the Metro bus. Route 78 that departs from Jefferson & University is a quick 7 minute trip for only $0.85. Please visit the Metro website for more information: http://www.sorta.com/.
The UC student group is meeting in the open air Farmer’s Market area or letter D on this map: http://www.findlaymarket.org/merchants/.
On Wednesday, Nov. 30 we will have a special event in MarketPointe. All of our entrees will feature items purchased from Findlay Market. We are also inviting farmers and representatives from the market to come to campus to meet students at the event.
Please RSVP to Katy Higbee at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get an idea of how many people to expect. Please include your method of transportation as well so we can plan for the carpool.
