Forecasted The cart will be supplied with local food from our local farms and local bakers ensuring we have the best products to sell. It is our intention to ensure our food is the freshest by using local farm to market food as well as keeping the prices low. Making money is why we are in business. For us to make money it will be necessary to have repeat customers which will keep our business thriving. Using social media will let our customers know where we are on a given day. Social media works both ways, our customers can contact us on social media such as facebook to find out where we might be over a weekend. This will help us reach the goals of repeat business in the Portland/Vancouver area. We are hoping by the use of social media, using farm fresh produce for our food and keeping our prices at a reasonable rate that our customers will come back to us time and time again to enjoy delicious, healthy, and freshly made vegetarian and vegan food that customers will enjoy and seek out at local events in the area.
Reflection For my field placement this semester I have been placed in School Lane Charter school located in Bensalem, PA. This charter school takes great measures in making sure their students get the best quality education. School Lane is an inclusive school, which means that students with or without disabilities are able to learn together, in the most least restrictive environment. I am placed in a first grade classroom this semester in Ms. Cameron’s room. The student who I chose to observe is Ben. Mrs. Cameron picked this student for me because it appears that he has some academic struggles followed by some deficits in social interaction and repetitive behavior such as, rocking back and forth. However, he has yet to be evaluated thus
The Colorado River Fair, as part of the network of California fairs, provides an enormous return on investment both economically and socially. Fairs celebrate the town’s history and heritage. They are an educational opportunity for youth and provide wholesome entertainment for families. Four-H and FFA programs support California’s vibrant agriculture sector. Community members of all ages enter their artwork, baked goods, photography and other homemade products in pursuit of coveted blue ribbons. Many non-profit and charity-based organizations participate in activities at the fair.
There were tons of food stands from about 12 different countries, ranging from countries in South and Central America. The main food stands that stood out the most were definitely El, Salvador, Mexico, and Brazilian food for their unique taste. I had the opportunity to try all types of delicious food that I've never seen in my life as well as watch the food be prepared. I did talk to the people that were cooking the different foods and learned a few traditional recipes that I could use when I learn how to cook. The connection that all these people had to the food was astounding because you could see how traditional everything was. Everyone was focused and dedicated to providing the best food they can, so that they can fully represent the countries food.
Today was a winner of a spring day at the Jasper Farmers Market at Lee Newton Park. Every Saturday with a few exceptions, bright and early at 7:30 our farmers’ market opens with devoted vendors selling a variety of goods, plants, bakery items, crafts, decor, eggs and fresh veggies. And fresh coffee! Blankets, hair bows, jewelry, clocks, wine stoppers and wooden toys are just a few of the many choices among the creative crowd. Spring greens for the fresh salads you crave, eggs for the soufflés and quiches or everyday cooking are abundant, and breads! Plus, many choices of baked items to choose from. Sorbets and tamales, too! You must come and see for yourself all the treasures to be found.
Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association Introduction For my civic engagement-learning project, I choose to volunteer at the Unity Common Ground Fair. I have been to state fairs but not a fair like this one. Honestly, I never even heard of this fair until Mark Kavanaugh e-mailed all KVCC students about it. The Common Ground Fair hosts the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) every year. Through Mark’s email, I contacted Anna Libby, Volunteer Coordinator, to find out what I needed to complete before I could volunteer. I did enjoy my time working at the fair, for I did interact with all versions of diversity.
The Sac County Fairgrounds have shaped me in ways that I cannot even describe. I made countless memories with my best friends and family at this place. I learned responsibility, hard work, and what it felt like to be rewarded for both of those things. So many events happen in this one week, at this one place, that all taught me so many life lessons. The many events that I was involved in at the fair, such as, entering my grandma’s vegetables into the open class building, entering my own projects as a 4-H member, and showing cattle. There are so many more wonderful things about this little county fair that I could go on and on about that have shaped me as a person.
OneGeneration was a nonprofit and intergenerational organization, that was founded by a man called Harry Vicman whose wife used to work at the market when she was alive, the organization is located next door to the market, it was a program that acted both as a childcare facility and senior activity and care center. The other was the Local Harvest community that supported local small-scale farmers and farms. I was also told that most of the consumers and farmers had been coming there since the markets initial startup with the newer generations taking over for their parents; I was then pointed towards an elderly couple who were said to attend the farmers market for as long as anyone had worked
My field experience took place at School for All Seasons in Isanti, MN. I spent some time in both a kindergarten and first grade classroom. This was an exciting time as I got be part of the kindergarten class on the first two days of school and the second week with the first grade classroom. The kindergarten classroom had approximately 18 students and the first grade classroom had approximately 22 students.
As a refresher, my field placement is at UPMC Mercy Acute Detoxification Unit. This week’s reflection paper strongly emphasizes the importance of peer group supervisions or seminars as a supportive method for Social Work’s interns. In addition, three concepts extracted from class’s readings are discussed.
I bought a few more items but those were the most intriguing. I HAD to purchase the whole hard red wheat berries because I’ve wanted to grind my own flour using my NutriBullet for my online dessert shop. You guys know I use “special flour” for my customers. LOL, The seafood shop and the butcher shop were not fully open so I couldn’t see their entire selection. I managed to talk with a few of the employees because they were pretty inquisitive as to why I was recording and taking pictures. I explained my blog to them and they invited me to return tomorrow for the grand opening ceremony when reporters and news stations would be present. I’m thinking about going back! You guys should definitely go there for the grand opening ceremony at 7:30 a.m. because they will be offering free coffee and pastries until 8 a.m. The first 200 guests will receive either a $10, $20, or $100 Whole Foods Market gift card and the first 500 guests will receive a free reusable shopping bag. So you will definitely be able to leave out of the store with
Hot and cold sandwiches are always freshly prepared. You can eat outside on the upper level, or you can grab a seat on the large patio. If you want to enjoy some live music, you should do your grocery shopping on the weekends. You can find plenty of organic produce and exotic spices. If you love chocolate, the large selection of gourmet chocolate will make you smile. The market also has a floral department.
The place where I completed my field assignment was a private program. Inside the classroom, there were 16 6-8 years old with two teachers. KW was the lead teacher and MS was the assistant. The program runs five days a week from 7:45-4:45. A fourth of the students in the class had IFSP/IEPs.
This morning my field instructor and I had a lengthy, but refreshing, conversation related to challenges with service delivery created by the agency setting; which than transitioned into a productive conversation related to the challenges the agency creates related to services in general. For refreshing, during field placement, I am working with individuals diagnosed with an intellectual and or developmental disability. As it relates to the agency setting, our main facility is an old school setting built in 1974. While over the years, the building has been remodeled, many areas of the building would not be considered easily accessible for an individual with a disability. There are doorways that have not yet been remodeled and remain narrow
