What's Stirring, February 24, 2014
- Today, February 24, is the LAST day to apply for the new Local Food Coordinator position with Lexington Fayette Urban County Government. Go here; scroll through the jobs to find "Administrative Officer Sr (Mayor's Office)" for the online application.
- Wednesday, February 26, I begin the new adventure of teaching food writing for the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning. I resist that "T" word, and think of it as guiding a five session fun-and-discovery series at Joseph-Beth's wonderland of a bookstore, all in the service of getting more people involved in the joy of using words and images to play with food. We will observe, write, and publish online. We will stoke the writer's expressive habits. See the course outline here. Call Joseph-Beth at 859-273-2911 to register. More descriptions here.
- March 7-8, the Organic Association of Kentucky holds its annual conference in Berea.
- March 8-9, Kentucky Crafted: The Market takes place in Lexington. Food is not the major theme, but locally crafted beauty is, and it's a spectacular event.
- Saturday, March 15, organizer Jamie Aramini and her volunteers offer a powerhouse day of learning and connection at the Kentucky Green Living Fair. It's in Somerset. Be there!
- May 17-18, Jamie Aramini—that same south central Kentucky force for good (and for good food)—speaks at the Sheep and Fiber Festival's local food dinner. Go to the fine festival, and go to the beautiful dinner, prepared again this year by Sullivan Culinary people.
